Corsair is aiming to take the Graphite series on the road with the Graphite 380T. A compact Mini-ITX chassis with a solid grip and sweet looks, it certainly has the specs to be an awesome LAN-gaming rig. But all this comes at a fairly high price - will the Graphite 380T manage to make each cent count?

393 mm (L) x 292mm (W) x 356mm (H) = that is a 40 liters :O - it is twice as much as some good mATX and almost x4 times bigger than Sugo SG09 size... if you are in to LAN parties and/or need to save some space in your place and think that case in this size would be appealing then you should check out some fullATX cases too, cuz they are not much bigger than this one.and all mATX cases are smaller than this one.

In pure volume, it might seem big but I just measured the dimensions to a box with a tape and it's not really as big as I initially expected. It's still quite big but nothing too big for me personally.

looks compact and easy to roll down the hill.
i prefer solid side panel for compact case since its harder to tidy up the cables

You are considering this as a cube, which it is not. While the maximum dimension may seem large, due to the angled sides, you are loosing some volume. Besides, thanks to the handle, it is super easy to carry around. Try gabbing a fully packed SG09 with one hand, clamping a gaming keyboard under the arm and holding a monitor under the other arm at the same time ;)

Thanks for the review. Honestly that's a nice looking case. Reminds me of my diving equipment. I hope Corsair wouldn't mind sending the bigger sibling for review too.

I like the color and the design but don't think I'd go for one, looks like a lot of plastic.

Dear Darksaber: I would rephrase this one:
"European customers will see the black version clock in at 99 pounds for the black and 109 pounds for the colored versions, which translates into around 125 euros and 135 euros respectively."

I can't get over the fact that it's incredibly gaudy and ugly... Plus 0 sound dampening.

Looks are subjective man. I am also not sure which ITX case comes with sound dampening- they got plenty of space issues as it is.

Honestly, the first thing it reminded me of was a portable plastic cooler. Someone else suggested a portable generator. That doesn't make it bad necessarily but I can't say that the looks are appealing to me.

It is sad that its only m-itx and not m-atx. I love small m-atx systems, but there arent many nice (from my point of view) cases where the board is horizontal and not vertical.

I like it! My next build will definitely use this chassis, unless something even better comes along.

I dislike it ... mostly because I'm expecting bumblebee case mods ... with little wings on the top
