Corsair Vengeance C70 Case

The Corsair Vengeance C70 is a mid tower competitive gaming grade case. Crafted from solid steel i thought i would take a closer look at one in time for our massive gaming sale. Read on for more.

Let's take a look at it's features:
  • Room for two 240mm radiators when lower drive cage is removed for outstanding watercooling potential.
  • Tool-free thumbscrews for each of the eight expansion slots, making it easy to upgrade to dual, triple, or quad video card setups
  • Front panel USB 3.0 ports with internal header for modern peripherals
  • Tinted side window with dual fan mounts lets you cool, and view your hardware in style
  • Three 5.25” bays and Six 3.5”/2.5” hard drive bays for excellent expansion capabilities

  • Front I/O: (x2) USB 3.0, (x1) Headphone, (x1) MIC, Power, and Reset Switches
  • Power Supply: ATX (not included)
 Pretty nifty looking features, taking a closer look at the case from outside one can not be impressed by the build quality. Even when taking off the front cover it feels solid and not a whimsy like plastic. It stays sturdy and firm and shows off the full steel interior, yes it is all steel. Apart from the hard drive racks which i'll be honest i wasn't the greatest fan of as they seemed pretty cheap, the rest of the case is nothing but steel. This gives an it an incredibly durable feel to it and is sure to be favoured by a lot of gamers.
Even the fans inside feel incredibly strong. They are almost identical to those found of the H60, H80 and H100 series water coolers. The fans on those are amazingly built and are ridiculously heavy and strong for their size. All the wiring supplied within the case is all black which gives me the sense that Corsair put good thought into this case. Having all the cables a single colour matching the case gives a good touch to it. The rear side of the motherboard tray is thick enough for me to fit my fingers in and looking at the back we can see Corsair have added nice clips that help with cable management and holding cables together.
The front panel is pretty army-like and features a flick switch for the reset button. Once the front cover is removed you'll notice an area to fit up to 2 fans in for extra intake through the hard drive bays. Along the top you'll find handles which allow for easy carrying and clips to hold in the side panel covers.

Overall this is a solid piece of steel case which i'm sure would be a favourite amongst gamers. With adequate room inside to fit a beefy gaming rig and the ability to carry it around with ease means fun times!
