Peter Donnell / 2 weeks ago
The new Corsair Crystal 680X launched today! However, Corsair are going all-out for this launch, with not one, but two amazing chassis. The other, is obviously the Carbide Series 678C. While the Crystal is huge, covered in tempered glass and RGB, this one is focused on being quiet and professional.
Equipped with sound dampening materials, thick panels, and a tempered glass window of its own. This is designed for those who want to show off their PC, but certainly don’t want to hear it. From a quiet gaming PC, to something quieter for the office, the 678C is tuned for a wide range of PC users. So, let’s dive in for a closer look at what it has to offer!
“The CORSAIR Carbide Series 678C is a mid-tower ATX case with sophisticated style and serious versatility. Sound damping side, front and roof panels ensure whisper-quiet operation. Keep your system cool with space for multiple radiators, including up to a 360mm in the front and roof. Regulate speed for three included SP140 PWM fans and up to three more with an included PWM fan controller. Install up to 6x 3.5in and 3x 2.5in drives, with a modular HDD/ODD design that allows you to move six trays to any of eight different mounting locations. And with hinges on both the front panel and tempered glass side panel, you’ll have tool-free easy access to your system.” – Corsair
