Corsair Announces Graphite Series 760T, 730T PC Cases

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 13 comments

Both cases will be available next month.

In addition to its Obsidian 250D mini ITX case, Corsair also announced two full tower PC cases, the Graphite Series 760T and the Graphite Series 730T. The 760T is Corsair's new flagship Graphite case and features one transparent side panel and one opaque side panel that are both hinged in the back. These panels sit into a steel frame and roof. The 730T is the same case but with steel side panels as opposed to the windowed 760T.

Both the 760T and 730T boast nine expansion slots, six 3.5-inch/2.5-inch combo bays (across two modular hard drive cages), with four tool-free 2.5-inch side-mounted cages for SSDs, three tool-free 5.25-inch bays, 2x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0, thumbscrews for all expansion slots, and cable routing with tie-downs to keep things tidy.



As for cooling, you're looking at three AF140L 140 mm fans, room for up to eight fans in total (three 120 mm/140 mm up top, two 140 mm/120 mm in front, one 140 mm/120 mm in the rear, and one 120 mm down bottom). Radiator compatibility is 360 mm or 280 mm up top, 280 mm or 240 mm in front, 120 mm down the bottom, and 140 mm or 120 mm in the rear.



The 760T is available in black or Arctic White and will cost $179.99 when it goes on sale in February. The 730T is only available in black and will be $40 cheaper at $139.99.

    IMO It would look better if the front was as sleek as the rest of the unit.

    Wow, I actually kind of want to sell my 400R now and get the 760T...lack of side vents will be an issue with GPU cooling though.

    The 760T is beautiful.140mm fans all around except the bottom is almost near perfect! I will wait for the normal ATX version with 7 expansion slots. If it do arrive and comes in black, it just may be my first Corsair case yet.

    On second thought, after i saw the video on youtube. I will pass on this case. They failed to make the modualr drive bays hotswap. This means that users still have to remove both side pannels an mess with cables when the want to swap out a drive.
    Also the back panel is windowed meaning users will see the rats nest of cables. Why couldn't they just use the solid left side panel from the 730T for the back panel of the 760T!

    NZXT have theis perfected where you only have to remove one pannel to get to the drives.

    I like the look of this compared to my 500R, but I don't know why they wouldn't put a sidepanel fan on the non-wndowed version.

    @Shankovich: That's what mods are for, my friend. I'm sure that side panel is easy to drill with some well-marked painter's tape and sharp bits.

    That's what I like to hear. I'm in the market for a new case in this price range, and the biggest thing I'm looking for is a lot of places for fans. I've found adding a couple of fans, but running all fans at a slightly lower speed results in better cooling at lower noise levels.... but finding a case that can support enough fans to make this work is the hard part.

    The window really shouldn't have gone all the way to the front of the case.

    @Shankovich I bet the front panel fans allow enough air flow to keep the gpu cool :p  if not you can remove one of the hard drive bays for another 120mm fan !

    I'd like to see a side panel where the window is replaced entirely by thin dust air filter mesh; semi-transparent and effective.

    Nice case, but, that front end looks like it's missing a cover or something...

    But then it wouldn't look as good :p . It's all a game of compromise, though I like your advice!
