Conclusion

Without doubt the C70 stands out in a very crowded marketplace and this is always a good thing. That said so many mass produced cases try to be different, and there are halls full of them at places like Cebit, but fall into the trap of minimising costs and impacting quality… not so for Corsair. The C70 looks and feels like a well built product from the strong steel chassis to the perfectly applied paint. The military theme is done tastefully and it was nice to see functional additions through it from the spring loaded handles to the clamp side locks and even the covered reset button which looks like a missile fire button.

Could a few tweaks have helped? Minor ones, yes. For example the bottom filters should be a little more tightly attached, the water cooling holes rubber lined rather than solid and maybe repositioning of the intake fans would please consumers too… or some slightly more sturdy drive bay brackets. We get the reason for placing them right next to the graphics card but placing them at the front of the case will always draw in more air. A nice compromise might have been to have one direct front intake and another fan next to the card, rather than two next to the graphics slots.

Performance of the case is also good, especially on the noise front, where we found the C70 to be one of the quietest cases we have used recently. Paired with Corsair’s H100 cooler we saw good CPU temperatures too and the install was easy thanks to tool free components and plenty of space to work in. We could of course add several of Corsairs new fans to enhance performance further. Another point of note was the spacious area behind the motherboard tray which made building the system easy.

While we love the quality and design of the case, the price does seem a very slightly high with a minimal number of fans included and no hot-swap bays, etc. That said the warranty is good and we do get all the bundled items required to get our system up and running.

Summary
The Vengeance C70 is a unique, well built case from Corsair which performs very well with low noise levels being a highlight.
