    Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the Graphite Series 600T mid-tower case, the latest addition to Corsair’s award-winning range of high-performance computer cases.

    The Graphite Series 600T builds on the success of the Obsidian Series 700D and 800D full-tower cases, by combining the features and performance that enthusiasts demand with a premium standard of build quality. It is designed to accommodate years of future component upgrades, with a USB 3.0 front panel connector and heavy duty latches and panels. The Graphite Series 600T stands out from the crowd of standard mid-tower cases on the market by offering builder-friendly features, optimized airflow, and exciting, dynamic styling.

    “Corsair took the case market by storm with the launch of the Obsidian Series 700D and 800D, and with the launch of the Graphite Series 600T, the storm will most certainly continue,” said Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing, Corsair. “The Graphite Series 600T may be a mid-tower on the outside, but inside it offers the features and performance of a full-tower case. Whether you are building a system with multiple GPUs, extra-long GPUs, or advanced watercooling, the 600T will accommodate your needs with style.”

    The Graphite Series 600T incorporates many of the same builder-friendly features from the award-winning Obsidian Series 700D and 800D, including advanced cable management and a large backplate cutout for easy CPU cooler installation. Specific design steps were taken to enable advanced watercooling configurations, including support for a dual 120mm radiator.

    Cooling is taken care of by one 200mm front intake fan with an easy-access dust-filter, plus one 200mm and one 120mm exhaust fan. An integrated fan controller allows for flexible control over fans speeds to balance cooling performance and sound levels.

    Up to six 2.5in or 3.5in storage drives are supported in easy-access caddies, plus up to four 5.25in front-panel devices. The Graphite Series 600T also supports all long graphics card formats, such as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 400-series and ATI Radeon HD 5970, and will easily fit 3-way SLI or CrossFireX configurations.

    The Corsair Graphite Series 600T mid-tower case is expected to be available later this summer from Corsair’s worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers. It is supplied with a two year warranty, and is backed up by Corsair’s legendary customer service and technical support.

    Wow they went the opposite direction regarding edges on this one. Its so round, it might roll of desks. Though looks like it has quality and a lot of grommet holes

    Reminds me of a CM Storm Sniper. It's even got the fan controller and same fan sizes/layout. Looks very nice and stylish though, loving the grommeted holes and side panel hand latches. Hopefully it won't be too expensive.

    look pretty good. Those usb's on the top look pretty close together. may only work if ur plugin in cables but not flash sticks. way to close together for that. really nice concept on the case though.

    just a stab in the air, but I would think like $199.99 would be about right.

    This looks like a tweaked Storm Sniper. If they can keep the price around the 150 mark its going to sell well. If its around 200 you might as well get the Sniper and use the extra cash for better fans.

    It looks like a CM Sniper copy. Also I hate they are using 200mm proprietary fans with white LEDs. What am I going to do about that? No side vent is 100% fail since anyone with SLI will get overheat. The removable front drive bays are a nice touch, but not as smartly done as the 690 II. The bottom drive bays aren't removable, so there's no room for a bottom radiator. Anything above $100 will too much for this steel/ shiny plastic case.

    If only it had a top-mounted fan it would be almost perfect.

    I think I will get this or the Obsidian 800D.

    The Cosmos Sniper doesn't have 2.5" compatible drive bays and I don't like the stupid external SSD mount in the Cooler Master CM 690 II.

    I don't care about side-windows or LEDS.

    It does have a top fan. :laugh:

    Looks good. Other than the USB slots being way to close together.

    That is a sweet looking case. Almost makes me want to give up my 922.
