Corsair Launches Three New Crystal and Carbide Series Cases

CORSAIR, a world leader in enthusiast memory, high-performance gaming hardware and PC components today announced the release of three new high-performance ATX PC cases. The new Crystal Series 570X RGB and 460X RGB pair renowned CORSAIR build quality and ease of use with beautiful tempered glass and vivid RGB lighting, allowing PC builders to admire and illuminate their system like never before.

The Carbide 270R combines sleek minimalist design with an exceptional internal layout designed to make systems easy to install and look their best. Whether you're building your dream PC or your first PC the new CORSAIR Crystal and Carbide series cases offer the features, looks and quality to help you Build It Better.
Crystal Series 570X RGB
Wrapped in four individual panels of tempered glass, the CORSAIR Crystal Series 570X RGB puts every component of your build on display with its sharp lines, elegant styling and beautiful finish. Fitted with three SP120 RGB 120mm fans, users can light up their PC with brilliant LED lighting effects and a choice of colors, all controlled directly from the case's front panel. With the whole system on display, cable routing is critical and the 570X RGB boasts dedicated cable routing channels and covers to ensure that it's your components, and not their cables, that are on show.

The 570X RGB is designed with both performance and style in mind, and can accommodate up to six cooling fans, fitted into removable fan trays for easy installation. The 570X RGB also offers enough space for a wide variety of liquid cooling radiators, right up to 360mm in the front, accomodating the most ambitious of custom builds. With its gorgeous styling, premium tempered glass, integrated lighting and abundance of upgrade options, the CORSAIR Crystal Series 570X RGB provides a Crystal clear showcase for your next PC masterpiece.
Crystal Series 460X RGB
Beautifully simple and engineered to perform, the CORSAIR Crystal Series 460X RGB packs all the the performance and expandability you need into a strikingly modern and compact ATX case design. Front and side tempered glass panels display every component of your system, while three included SP120 RGB 120mm fans provide bright and customizable LED lighting controlled straight from the case's front panel.

Direct Airflow Path design minimizes the distance between fans and hardware, positioning drives out of the path of airflow, while easily accesible dust filters on the top, bottom and front of the 460X RGB make cleaning a breeze. Building the 460X RGB to look its best is easy, with tool-free drive installation and a wealth of cable routing options, including a dedicated modular PSU and 3.5in bay cover. Compact, capable and clad in vibrantly lit tempered glass, the 460X RGB puts your next PC on display for an envy-inspiring setup.
Carbide Series 270R
Solid, sleek and understated, the CORSAIR Carbide Series 270R offers all the essentials of a high-end PC case, while retaining a spacious internal layout and versatile cooling options. Available with either a huge transparent window or solid side panel, the 270R's minimalist exterior hides an expansive interior that's designed to make building a PC as easy as possible. Deep cable routing channels, numerous tie-down points and convieniently located drive bays combine with a dedicated cable routing compartment that surrounds the PSU, making clean and professional builds simple. T

he 270R windowed comes equipped with a red-LED lit AF120 120mm intake fan and black AF120 120mm exhaust fan, while the 270R non-windowed ships with a single black AF120 120mm exhaust . Whichever you choose, the 270R offers great out-of-box cooling while also supporting a wealth of liquid cooling radiators and cooling upgrades. Able to mount upto a 360mm radiator in the front and a 240mm radiator in the roof, the 270R can accommodate almost anything your next PC might require, both now and in the future.

Maybe someday I'll finally understand the obsession for cases with tempered glass panels.

What's hard to understand? Far superior to acrylic/perspex in every sense (unless you consider the extra weight to be a negative), and if you don't understand why people want to see the inside of their PC's vs a big solid black box, well... WOW!

That 270R is actually pretty tempting with room for a 240mm radiator up top and/or a 360mm radiator in front. I've been using a Cosair case (and lots of other components) for years and it's excellent, but if I want to upgrade as a gift to myself these holidays this one might be on my list. And looks like pricing is really good on it, ~$59 without the side window or $69 with. Hmmm...very tempting.

I do prefer big solid black boxes. :)

Great looking cases but I wish they would come up with a more elegant solution for mounting the glass panels. All the giant thumbscrews take away from the overall aesthetic of the case. Have the panels slide into slots that have locking clips or something.

That would be difficult to do and keep the cost low at the same time.

I do prefer a big solid black box, yeah. In fact I have my Air 540 case turned away so I don't have to look inside of it because I've been too lazy to cover up the acrylic window. I don't get the sudden surge in popularity of cases made entirely out of tempered glass for all of the exterior panels. It'll look "good" for all of 30 seconds.

I love the 460 with 2 glass panels, any more is overkill as they aren't needed.

Why do I keep thinking that Corsair is somehow using Radeon's brand name scheme in these cases?

Well, the code name for the 570X was "RADEON 9700 PRO" but we felt that was a bit too obvious.
