Packaged in a standard brown cardboard box is the Corsair Crystal 680X RGB. You kind of get a feel of what the case looks like, but you do get much more detail of what the inside of the case looks like with a very detailed exploded view.

Once taken out of the box and its styrofoam cocoon you will find that the Corsair Crystal 680X RGB has yet another form of protection with a cloth bag over the case. You also get quick access to the case manual and a screen with magnets on it. We will figure out where that goes later. A small, yet effective, a piece of foam is placed at the top of the case between the glass front panel and the bezel. This is done for the reason that the top right portion of the glass is not directly attached to the case.

 

Our First full look a the 680X RGB, striking yet basic styling. With an almost pure white color and smoke tinted glass pieces, you can be sure that the Corsair Crystal 680X will stand out in any room, even when the lights are off.

  1. You are the only one out of 100 to say it had high air flow. When in fact the front window chokes the air coming in a great deal. Did you even try to remove the front glass to test out the difference? I guess the 32 odd screws will be enough to make anyone not want to try it. If they would have made it like the top and only held in by 4 or 6 extended screws to remove it they would have won the battle. Giving the user the ease of leaving it on or removing it. Then you could have 3d printed a front mesh cover to mount there.

    Filling up the bays with 4 x 3.5 full mechanical drives is also a nightmare for heat. As the heat has no way to be pushed from that bay side. You can either get creating and mount some 120s in there or smaller. Or 3d print a fan holder and add fan to the bottom to keep the air moving.

    Next time you do a review put a little more effort into it. This was a very bland review with no AIRFLOW testing done at all.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. BTW I am STILL using the case and have had no issues with airflow. Also remember that the bottom of the case is open to allow more air in or to be forced out.
    I do believe I did state in the video that I wish the glass was removable or why did they even do it other than keeping the look of the case the same. You also have to keep in mind that we, as enthusiast, think of terms of things as running the PC 1-2 degrees cooler than the average person and that sometime looks out weight the things we think are important.

  3. To @LOGI_MASTER:
    Just writting this cause I got this case and EVERYTHING you say is so true, FINALLY someone speaks the truth about this case. The entire case is very nice to the eye wont deny it, it is pretty yeah but the way it lacks basic stuff like being able to remove the front glass as mentioned without DYING with so many screws really, its very very annoying do NOT buy this case, Corsair wont care wether it fullfits your needs or not.
    Not to mention also my build, I do own a EVGA 3080ti hybrid, liquid cooling AIO and having to install a double radiator was just…stupid really. Contacted Corsair, again they DIDN’T care. It wa sold to me as a case that could fit ANYTHING inside..and no it cant, try fitting inside a 3090 suprim or similar.
    I really regret having purchased this thing, and this review, I Understand it takes some effort to let others know and the like, thank you for that but really,please dont lie this case overheats with just looking at it if you have average latest components, specially graphic cards of the new generation, even with some custom tweaks here and there, liquid cooling, fans…anything it IS really bad with temperatures. There cheaper options, that actually keep your stuff cooled down, I sold my Lian Li XL and got this one, if you could see my face now…
    Worst part is the way Corsair, contacted them to check on my build, see if they could give me a hand and they really ignored me, very disappointed wish I had not bought this thing, so many years buying their stuff, never again.
