Corsair iCUE 220T RGB Airflow Smart Case Review
Peter Donnell / 3 weeks ago
The mid-tower PC market is extremely competitive. Corsair is by far one of the most competitive in the market. They have an enormous range of award-winning PC cases. However, even Corsair know you need to add that X-factor to stand out from the crowd. That’s where the iCUE 220T RGB comes into play. It features a unique front panel mesh design, a huge amount of fantastic RGB features, tempered glass, steel construction, a PSU shroud and much more. It’s certainly ticking all the right boxes.
Coming in at around £99.99 and $109.99 at launch, it’s not “cheap”. However, as you can see from the features list below, you’re getting a lot in return for your investment. Those SP120 RGB PRO fans and the included hub aren’t cheap on their own at £49.99. However, they have proven to be a fan favourite from Corsair (weak fan-related pun intended). You’ll also be able to buy additional fans from Corsair directly. They’ve even included an extra box of them for us to tinker with; which we certainly will!
- High Airflow Layout: Structured to improve your system’s cooling, complete with a steel grill front panel for optimal air intake.
- Light up Your PC: Includes three CORSAIR SP120 RGB PRO fans, each lined with eight individually addressable LEDs around the hub (24 total).
- Smart Case, Smart Lighting: The included Lighting Node CORE controls your RGB lighting, making for brilliant lighting effects right out of the box with CORSAIR iCUE software.
- Solid Steel: The 220T RGB Airflow’s steel construction and front plate ensure sturdy and resilient durability along with a striking look.
- Edge-to-Edge Tempered Glass Side Panel: Showcase your components and RGB lighting with a fully transparent window into your PC.
- Full-Length PSU Cover: Hide your power supply and cables out of sight, making it easy to build a professional-looking system without excess clutter.
- Powerful Airflow: Keep your components cool with room for up to 6x 120mm fans, 4x 140mm fans, or up to 3x radiators including a 360mm radiator in the front.
- Fits up to Four Drives: Flexible storage options include two 2.5in trays and two more trays in a removable cage that fit additional 3.5in or 2.5in drives.
- Keep it Clean: Removable dust filters in the floor, roof and front keep your system clean for years after the build is finished.
