I would like to thank Corsair for supplying the review sample.
The Corsair Crystal 280X may remind us of the Corsair Air 240, which made big waves back in 2014. However, as a lot of time has past, the Corsair Crystal 280X shares only the idea as a generic layout with the older chassis. Available in black or white, the Corsair Crystal 280X in its RGB variant employs multiple solid glass panels and retail RGB fans, and incorporates Corsair's own Lightning Node PRO controller and, hence, iCUE software. For those who are not fans of RGB lighting, Corsair offers a non-RGB version for around US$50 less.
