[Editor's note: Our review of the CORSAIR 7000D Airflow can be found here for those interested.]

CORSAIR, a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced a new series of full-tower ATX cases to accommodate the biggest, most ambitious enthusiast builds: the CORSAIR 7000D AIRFLOW and the CORSAIR iCUE 7000X RGB. Available in black and white, both 7000 Series cases feature a mammoth interior for maximum cooling potential, accommodating multiple radiators - up to three 360mm or two 420mm simultaneously. Exceptional airflow comes courtesy of included 140mm PWM fans featuring CORSAIR AirGuide technology, while the popular CORSAIR RapidRoute cable management system helps you easily create tidy, professional-looking builds.

Choosing from either the 7000D AIRFLOW's perforated steel high-airflow front panel, or the 7000X RGB's three beautiful tempered glass windows to showcase your system and lighting, PC enthusiasts will find the ideal case for their next masterpiece. The cavernous interior of 7000 Series cases offers a multitude of cooling configurations to handle almost any PC cooling setup, with room for up to 12x 120mm or 7x 140mm cooling fans, or multiple radiators including up to 3x 360mm or 2x 420mm simultaneously. A specialized motherboard tray with customizable fan mounts enables you to install up to four 120mm fans or up to a 480mm radiator into the side of the case.



The 7000D AIRFLOW includes three 140mm fans with CORSAIR AirGuide technology, for concentrated airflow directed toward your PC's hottest components. The 7000X RGB goes a step further and adds radiant RGB lighting with four included SP140 RGB ELITE AirGuide fans, each equipped with eight individually addressable RGB LEDs. An included iCUE COMMANDER CORE XT controller, CORSAIR iCUE software, and a PWM fan repeater provide comprehensive control of not only lighting, but fan speed and performance too. Both the 7000D AIRFLOW and 7000X RGB offer an abundance of storage space including 6x combo 2.5in / 3.5in drive trays and 3x 2.5in SSD mounts. A full array of front panel I/O connections including a USB 3.1 Type-C port and 4x USB 3.0 ports ensures the 7000 Series meets the needs of nearly any system.

The 7000 Series' tempered glass window showcases your premium components, while the case cleverly conceals your cables. The CORSAIR RapidRoute cable management system routes major cables through a single hidden channel, with a spacious 30mm of routing depth behind the motherboard and two tool-free hinged side panels for easy access. A three-slot vertical GPU mount on the PSU shroud puts any size graphics card center stage.

The spacious interior of both 7000 Series cases is optimal for housing the new CORSAIR H170i ELITE CAPELLIX Liquid CPU Cooler. With a massive 420mm radiator, three ML140 RGB PWM fans, and an eye-catching RGB pump head, the H170i ELITE CAPELLIX is the highest performing all-in-one cooler from CORSAIR to-date. Its extreme cooling performance is powered by a low-noise centrifugal pump, generating less than 20 dBA. A split-flow copper cold plate rapidly absorbs heat from your CPU, while the ML140 RGB fans spin up to 2,000 RPM to disperse that heat after it reaches the radiator.

This top-tier performance is complemented by dynamic RGB lighting from 33 ultra-bright, power-efficient CAPELLIX LEDs in the pump head and eight individually addressable RGB LEDs per ML140 RGB fan. With the incredible customization offered by the included CORSAIR iCUE COMMANDER CORE Controller and powerful CORSAIR iCUE software, you can put the spotlight on your cooling. The H170i ELITE CAPELLIX is compatible with almost every modern Intel and AMD CPU, including LGA 1200, 115X, 2066, and AM4 sockets.

With the launch of the 7000 Series, ORIGIN PC is adding the 7000D AIRFLOW and 7000X RGB cases to its award-winning line of GENESIS custom PCs. Boasting the highest-end hardware, from Intel Core i9 and AMD Ryzen CPUs to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-Series graphics, ORIGIN PC's GENESIS line of desktops combines superpowered specs with maximum customization, letting you configure your dream PC just the way you want.

I agree, 100%! I don't understand this mentality that gamers don't need or use hard drives.

There I was thinking, why Corsair does not do a Mini-Itx version of this case, and what do you know ? they make one another for atx size, that is like 3-4 for the same family line of cases now?

if that it on the desk image, it looks more like a large mid-tower than a full tower.

Yes, I agree as well.
I have two Raids with each 2×3TB drives.
There are famous Cooler Master Cosmos cases that support those and more.
I own Cosmos c700p since 2018 with also a lot of space for water cooling.
The newer Cosmos c700m I think also offers same features:

In any case, this Corsair 7000 seems to interesting case. I will check the review from TPU. It could be interesting for future builds.

This looks to be a huge case for lots of drives. That glassed in RGB version could be a big seller with the new 420 AIO, I didn't check the price it's probably up there with Cougar!

Given the size and features its going to make excellent workstation case. Its very unfortunate trend seen with majority of cases which are dropping hdd cages.

I usually replace some of my standby PC cases every 2-years or so. For the simple reason it rewarding me with a feeling that I have a new PC and no case cleaning required that year either. Then perhaps replacing at the same time memory, WIFI, storage, fans, etc. For me the 7000X is "basically" doing its job but no more, besides being rightfully described as raw and unrefined and with Corsair having dropped and slipped-up with all of the fine details. Just for starters: The Commander XT does not have the new connector used by iCUE Elite coolers. The included 140mm fans require cable extensions to work in the 7000X case. For what it is I would not touch the 7000X with a ten foot pole and then at the given MSRP. So it appears that Corsair essentially is throwing a "cheapend-out" PC case on the market. Amazing that Corsair with their coveted and proffered sterling reputation allowed some of their decision-makers to slipping a product like this onto the market!

Saw the "Cougar Panzer EVO RGB" case at the recent local computer show. Massive dark tempered glass panels all around and (4) retail grade RGB fans with a included full-hub and remote controller. The boys from Bangladesh told me that this case originally came on the market in 2008. And is now going for $165 new in the box at the show. The Panzer EVO RGB is also a hot item for people who cannot afford a higher-end MB with a ton of RGB and fan connectors, but at the same time want the premium overall case looks, added Mr. Rami. Most certainly I personally would have bought the Panzer case any day over the Corsair 7000X. So it seems that prices even for some of the most premium Cougar cases are going down and being now more affordable especially for bottom-fishers like me. Unfortunately I don't even have spare $165 and thus may have to wait a bit longer for a splurge in this direction.
