When looking at the Corsair Vengeance C70 - especially the military green variant - some may think at first that a modder has had his fun with a standard chassis and added military elements to it. Thus, the first surprise would be that Corsair has taken this level of detail and offers it as a mass market product. Then, the second thought that pops into one's mind is "price tag". Even with the level of detail and excellent feature set, the case does not cost more than other cases aimed at the same market.
With its choice of colors, even those who do not want the green version can rest assured that the black or white look just as cool. Assembling the system with the chassis is a joy, as every feature implemented works and does so extremely well. From the clipping system holding the side panels in place or the tension based ODD locks to the removable drive cages and excellent cable management possibilities. It is all there - neatly packed into a kick-ass gamer chassis.
Corsair has shown us with the Obsidian 550D, that opposites are possible, by offering a silent chassis with the flexible cooling possibilities for high-end components and now they are taking it to the next level, expanding their Vengeance line of gaming gear with the first chassis - throwing a frag grenade in the fray of the existing gaming case market and digging a trench that nobody would have expected to see right out of the gates. Well done Corsair!
