iCUE 220T RGB Mid-Tower -Tower Chassis
The front of the 220T RGB does a fair bit in the styling department to differentiate it from the SPEC Delta. The front panel is now plastic corner standoffs with a steel front panel that is held on with ball and socket connectors. The metal panel has a unique triangular aesthetic which works as the lighting pass through and air inlets beyond the significant opening gaps on each side of the panel. The angular styling is broken up by the corsair logo at the lower mid-section of the panel.
The top has a magnetic filter which covers the fan mounts supporting up to dual 140mm and dual 120mm or a reported 240mm radiator. You also get a small peek below to the front panel connectors which we will look at next.
The front I/O is quite scant on the 220T RGB. From left to right:
- Power button with integrated power LED
- Dual USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports
- Four-pole 3.5mm jack supporting headphone and microphone (No adapter included)
- Reset button
As you can see, the I/O is functional but basic with only two ports.
The main side panel is quite clear with no tinting on the large tempered glass panel. The panel has four large thumb screw style fasteners affixing the panel, looking toward the front panel you can see the sizeable gap for airflow with the front metal panel elevated above its corner mounts.
The rear section shows the 120mm rear fan mount which out of the box is not populated. The mounting has a vertical adjustment to allow installation at a more flexible positioning. The 220T RGB has seven expansion slots which are standard fare for an ATX chassis. The PSU is also standard fare here. One thing to note is that we see the mounting thumbscrews for the solid cable management panel, but you will notice there are corresponding holes on the tempered glass side as well since this chassis is directly reused from cases like the SPEC Delta. The thumbscrews are for standard style panels to cover the main chassis, which means we could see non-TG 220T examples in the future if corsair decided it would be a wanted model.
The rear cable management cover panel is solid metal painted the same black finish as the base chassis. This is a slide-type opening panel which means if there are larger bundles of cables, it could end up being troublesome to install the panel.
The bottom of the 220T RGB is relatively standard but just a bit shorter. The PSU area has a removable dust filter, and the HDD cage internally has screws to adjust it here. There are five screws total needed to remove or change the cage, but one of them is in the cable management area. The feet are rectangular, and plastic with rubber feet stuck on to help avoid skidding.
