Since moving into the case market a few years ago Corsair really have taken it by storm. A strong set of releases have seen them impress reviewers and consumers with reviews from both having little, if anything, to criticise. That said up to this point Corsairs case designs have been reasonably normal. There have been a few colours thrown in and cases with/without windows but on the whole they look to offer function and performance over extreme style.
With the release of the Vengeance C70 case we see for the first time the Corsair case designers getting to think outside the box. Employing a military theme the C70 gets a thorough look on our review bench today.
Packaging and Bundle
Corsair use a nice simple box design for the C70 showing an outline of the case and giving some key details on the features and specifications. Inside we find the case wrapped in plastic then suspended in foam with documentation provided.
Also bunded with the case is a USB 3.0 to 2.0 connector, multiple cable ties and a wide range of screws (multiple of each) ensuring we have everything available to build our system.
There was a time a few years ago that Hi-Fi/AMP like HTPC cases were everywhere. That has changed a bit in recent times due to some excellent m-ATX boards allowing builds in compact chassis however there is still something about the home theatre component style of design which can be appealing...
