The Corsair Graphite 760T - A Clear Cut Case

The very first PC case I have come across which uses full windows as side panels... whoa!

Preview Sample

Packaging & Specs

Full tower accommodating all the way up to e-ATX and XL-ATX form factors


Instead of the usual large plastic bag, Corsair includes a large fibre cloth bag which happily doubles up as a dust cover for owners fastidious with keeping their PCs spotless

Top View

Top mesh comes with a nice plastic cover attached by a few small magnets

You can try reading off the manufacturing date from the plastic top cover here...

Side Windows/Panels
Full size transparent poly carbonate windows which are slightly darkened, they swing outwards to the back and are easily & completely removable. Corsair must have put in some grease work here cos the end result is extremely aesthetic & elegant in operation.

Notice the small magnet helping to secure the side windows?

Demonstrating the clarity & LED light transmission of the side windows by placing the manual and a small LED torch behind the window

Demonstrating the superb fit of plastic against metal of the side window, do check out the lustrous paint finishing too!

Comes with a stealth cover for your ODD, ooh nice!
