Just as with the Obsidian 750D, there is very little wrong with the Graphite 760T. Corsair has done a great job in growing the 230T's look into what we saw today, and while the 760T is considerably more expensive than the 750D was at launch, there is some added value to be had. There are its hinged doors and the two-speed fan controller, and gone are the bumps for the motherboard, which is a good little upgrade. There is also a functional stealth cover now.
While its price is certainly justified, the 760T might still not be the best value for your money when it comes to a chassis of this size. The ability to hold a wide array of motherboards in combination with several cooling options really shows that the Graphite 760T actually caters to high-end enthusiast who want a chassis that is bit more flashy than the 750D. Add the fact that Corsair also includes three AF140L mm fans while keeping all the cables black, and one also has to get quite picky to find anything wrong with the chassis. The chassis would come mighty close to perfection had Corsair only included an option to hang both cages off the 5.25" bays, which would free up the floor for a third cage, and lets not forget including a 5.25" to 3.5" drive-bay adapter to match the design of the front. So what else can we say about this chassis? The Graphite 760T is definitely a great choice if you want to show your hardware off in a slick but extremely-easy-to-assemble manner many will drool over with a healthy dose of jubilation. Grab the Obsidian 750D and treat yourself to a steak dinner if you don't like over-the-top cases - you will be just as happy.
