Case Build & Finished Product
As the build was completed, it is time to take another lap around the Corsair Crystal 570X. As many know already, we are huge fans of a solid front bezel, and this full sheet of glass with the fans in full view falls into this category. Sorry if you still use a 5.25" device, as this chassis has no accommodations for such things.
As far as installing the components went inside of the case, we have nothing to complain about. The motherboard installation went smooth; the AIO fits without issue, our video card is flat with little sag at all, and the wiring is also very clean in its presentation.
Our dust shield gave us no issues when it snapped right into place, and access to the expansion slots is open, and we did not have to force the chassis inward to align anything. Even when it came to screwing in the PSU, everything lined right up and was as easy as can be.
While we do not have the amount of wiring associated with many builds out there, we were able to hide almost all of by using the pre-defined channel with its cover plate. Of course, some of the wiring is exposed near the bottom as you make your way under the PSU cover, as well as our SATA cable and 8-pin lead.
With a slight tint to the tempered glass panel which covers the right side of the chassis, it does obscure wires a bit more from view. However, anything bright, like the sticker on the SSD or use of red cables will stand out plain as day.
After going about replacing the other glass panels, we then are ready to get to testing this chassis. We do have to say we do like the looks from this view or any other for that matter. While it may be a lot of glass for some, this is clean and elegant in its presentation, and it only gets better once we boot the system.
Once powered, we see the logo on the front, and the PSU cover are glowing white and matches our video card and AIO LEDs (had we remembered to plug in the 3-pin connector for it). As for the 120mm fans on the front, we chose to present them in blue this time. Keep in mind these can glow in white, red, orange, yellow, green, and violet, as well as being put into breathing and flicker mode, static, breathing, or flicker modes. The flow from the fans is sufficient to cool the interior to average levels of component temperatures, and while running full speed, the reading from our sound meter was showing 28dB.
