Re: New Corsair 760T Case.

I saw that case when I was looking at the Ces products, nice case I guess there is a cover for the top of the case, the build they had on the video they showed it with a H100I cooler without the cover.

Re: New Corsair 760T Case.

Yes that is a beautiful case and I can tell it is higher quality than the 550D. I bet it cost around $200. I could build a beautiful system somewhat like this again and use Haswell-E.

...but, it would be a waste of money for bragging rights. If you look at your PC as a featured tool you can not beat the performance, efficiency, I/0 and graphics capability of a workstation class mobo and the Intel i7-4770K with integrated graphics. I believe you can count the games on one hand that utilized 2 or 3 cores much less 8 on Haswell-E and if you were to buy a Haswell-E you would undoubtedly pick up a performance OCing mobo like an ASUS ROG. I can OC fine with out a 130W processor and I keep the iGPU. $0.02

Re: New Corsair 760T Case.

Found it $139 for the one without the window, $179 with window!

"In the US, The Graphite Series 760T has a suggested retail price of $179.99 (black) or $189.99 (Arctic White), while the 730T has a suggested retail price of $139.99 (black only). Both will be available in February from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers. It is backed with a limited 2-year warranty and Corsairís excellent customer service and technical support."

Hey smarty, what makes you assume I just looked at a picture? Do you not have more faith in my review skills than that? LOL

There is a video in that there web site. It shows a steel hinged pin used in the case window and mentioned a full-sized, polycarbonate, semi-transparent glass window. That is way beyond the cheap side panels used on the 550D. Not to mention it has the same full size steal case as the 550D with more removable bays and has 3 new customized quiet LED 140mm fans. The fans alone are way better than what ships in the 550D.

That is why I said it is a higher quality. LOL

That $179 is cheaper than I expected but sounds right. This is after all a
Graphite' series cases and not a top-of-the-line 'Obsidian' series. At least I believe the Obsidian series is Corsair's top cases.

Your right, Obsidian is the top of the line for Corsair, I still like my wifes 550D, with sound proofing it is dead silent (you already know that)....these are different kind of cases really, aimed at two different purpose I would guess!

Yeah, I have to learn to stick with what I have especially when it works and suits me already. I still love the features and size of the 550D.

The 760T is an awesome case but it leads you to building a more fancier gamers/presentation rig with better and louder cooling. Like I was saying, this case would be suited for a strong Haswell-E chip that needs more cooling and you would show off your nice ROG board. To go with a cooler i7-4770K you might as well shoot for quietness such as the 550D.

Just the fact that the Z87-WS OC's to 4.7GHz is proof that you don't have to subscribe to the ROG line of mobo's to OC. Also, in looking here you will see that my comments above are correct that games aren't going to benefit much from even quad-core.

I don't mean to bad-mouth Haswell-E. It will be the fastest chip because it has more cache. Someone who uses multi-cores , 40+ PCI lanes, or lots of memory bandwidth (quad-channel) for serious work would appreciate the Haswell-E. If you read up though, even reviewers are hard pressed to show a performance increase in benchmarks in regards to standard desktop usage and for gaming.

Re: New Corsair 760T Case.

Was just looking at cases tonight, the 760T and the EVGA Hadron mATX cases. Both are very nice.

The 760T is a work of art. If I were starting from scratch and buying a case today it would be the black windowed 760T. It would lead me to different internals to like going back to the excellent XSPC and EK water cooling setup I use to have and of course I would have to feed such a case the job of cooling a Haswell-E. But I am satisfied with a quiet case. The reason I got rid of the 650D and water cooling was to have a nice quiet case and the 550D fulfills that better than any other case.

The EVGA Hadron is a nice looking case externally. Other than for something fun to try I don't have a need to minimize my computer case. Not when it stays fixed on the floor in an office. This case would be great to give a student or somebody you love a portable machine that is very capable. Also, I don't know how I could get by with any mATX mobo since I am using 8 USB ports in the back and 1 in the front.

Re: New Corsair 760T Case.

Just ordered this to put in my front panel mic jack. It will save me from a recurring decision everytime I use my HP's lol.
