CORSAIR 680X RGB Tempered Glass PC Case Review

Cool Enough For Me

Hardware Installation and Clearance Compatibility

Shown in this section is a simple and rather quick install of the hardware and what I think a non-cable management person might do. I did this to illustrate that even without full-on management you can still have a very clean looking PC.

  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.
