For all the reasons we liked the 600T so much, we find all of that and some with the newest Graphite series chassis to hit the market. The exterior styling definitely shows some lineage to the earlier design, and who doesn't like when the manufacturer sees what is being done to the chassis in the aftermarket world and decides to just incorporate their own take on that idea? What is the best part about this is that while the 600T had an optional clear side panel you could purchase separately, this time around it is incorporated, and the overall cost to the customer does not take the huge hit to the wallet as if you were to go about it the other way around. Not only did Corsair stay true to the chassis that made the Graphite Series a huge success in the first place, but there is no denying their sleek and elegant way of delivering the next best idea in what the Graphite Series is with this 760T.
Inside and out, there are plenty of features to keep you adapting and building onto the PC as money shows up to add things like digital displays, water cooling, or even if you just plan to fill all of the fan holes, you then would have up to seven 120mm fans or up to six 140mm ones. Since we mentioned water cooling, we may as well continue with the fact that a dual-120mm or dual-140mm radiator can go in the front, a triple-120mm or a dual-140mm can go in the top with over 90mm of clearance, and if you wanted to, you can also stick a single radiator in the back and floor of the chassis in either 120mm or 140mm sizes.
A fully equipped front I/O panel with a fan controller that takes the fans from full speed at 42dB to a more suitable level for most users at 30 dB when the toggle is set to the lower fan speed setting is very handy to have. It is also very handy to have a chassis that can house motherboards over the ATX standard. Previously offered cases from Corsair have had a bend in the tray that would prevent that, but it's not present here.
Looking deeper into the design, the six 3.5-inch drive trays and the pair of cages can be left sitting side by side to allow plenty of air flow and room for expansion cards. They can also be stacked right behind the fans, one on top of the other, or they can be completely removed, and even here, the screws that need to be removed are all accessible without having to take off the large single front foot of the chassis, and we really like when designs think out every angle. The SSD trays are just the coolest thing since sliced cheese in our opinion.
Not only do they allow users to put the SSD on display for anyone to see it, the area they use is typically wasted space in most chassis designs. While not a first to see this sort of arrangement, it definitely shows that Corsair isn't about putting a new wig on the same old design; they definitely brought their A-game when designing the Graphite Series 760T, and it is a definite step forward in the Graphite Series line of cases.
While you may be catching this review on release day, and availability may be somewhat limited still, the MSRP of this chassis is in no way out of bounds. In fact, when looking back to the 600T's release price, we see that the 760T is only demanding $10 more than the white 600T that we tested. As for how it compares against all other full-tower designs, the Graphite Series 760T will stand tall against quite a bit of the competition.
First of all, the aesthetics are pretty stellar in our opinion, and we like the slightly more aggressive look of the way the panels sort of just peek out around the bezel. Also with internal and external water cooling options, along with the ability for a radiator with push/pull fans at the top, it shows not only does Corsair listen to its customers, but that they can also deliver exactly what everyone wanted, and at a fairly decent price point that, to us, is right on point and well worth every penny of that $189.99 US MSRP; you surely won't be disappointed in this purchase!
