  1. truly a revolutionary case 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jul 2019

    ook at the case from the front is metal, sound dampened, and slides off with 2 thumb screws. The “top” or left side panel is glass and hinged without screws. The front panel is hinged, hard plastic, and sound dampened. Inside the front panel is a plastic framed air filter with magnetic edges. For the top, you can use either the sound dampened metal panel or the flexible heavy plastic air filter panel; both have magnetic edges. On the top frame are two USB A ports, one USB C port, a 3.5 mic/headphone port, a power button, and a reset button.

    The frame can accommodate motherboards in E-ATX, ATX, micro-ATX, or mini-ITX form factors. It has bays for up to six 3.5” drives, three 2.5” drives, and one 5.5” optical drive. The case can fit a graphics card of up to 370 mm. The This is an ATX (extra large) case for custom building a desktop computer. External dimensions are 19” high x 9” wide x 21” deep; the case was meant to be installed vertically and has rubber feet on the bottom. As shipped, the case weighs just under 30 lbs. The outside of the case and the internal frame are steel, except for the glass panel on the left side and the hard plastic panel in front. Included in the case are two 140 mm fans, one mounted on the top and one in the back. The case can accommodate up to nine fans. It also has a built-in fan repeater/controller. The frame can also accommodate front, top, and rear radiators.

    The “bottom” or right side panel as you lcase comes with a bag of hardware including fan screws, MBD screws, ODD/SSD screws, motherboard standoffs, long fan screws, cable ties, and HDD screws. To build this case out into a working computer, at a minimum, you will also need to purchase a power supply, motherboard, processor, memory, hard drive, and power cord.

    I like this case for the amount of room it provides, and also for the ease of access from all directions. The case allows for either complete sound dampening or great air circulation, but there’s a trade-off, you can do one or the other completely, or some of each. What’s nice is that the case design allows you to choose between complete sound dampening or open air flow based on your needs. With the top and front panel open and lots of fans installed, you could make this case into a wind tunnel. But then it would be noisy, plus the front panel is hinged but doesn’t come off, so the panel would get in the way if left open. On the other hand, with the top and front panels closed, the air circulation would be greatly reduced, even with a lot of fans, but the system would be quiet. So what’s best for you and your build? You can decide yourself, which is a nice feature of this case.

    As a professional photographer, I find it most cost-effective to build my own systems so that I can put in exactly the high-end components that I need and change them out as new components become available. I use a lot of hard drives, so having 6 bays for internal 3.5” drives is a great plus for me. I need good cooling and circulation for those hard drives, but I like quiet, so I will be playing around with the fan options on this case to figure out just how cool I can keep the innards with the noise dampening panels shut.

    One thing I don’t like about this case is that to open and use the optical drive, you have to open the hinged front panel and remove the plastic air filter. I actually have to use my optical drive a lot, so dealing with the hinged door to access the optical drive is a bit of a pain. Also, I would really like at least one more large (5.5”) drive bay for my internal floppy drives (for transferring photos and documents from floppies). But probably the single 5.5” bay would be enough for most people’s needs.

    Overall, this is a sturdy attractive case that is easy to work with. It has plenty of options to allow the builder to create a unique compromise between quiet operation and cooling that best fits the needs of the user.

    Before you read on about this case ask yourself the following questions:

    1. Do I like my computer cases big, beefy and beautiful?
    2. Do I need 11 drive bays?
    3. Do I need a case that could withstand a direct nuclear strike?

    If you answered "Yes!" to all of those questions then this case may be for you. I build a fair number of PCs and have been building since the 90's. Cases have made a remarkable transformation over that time from very rudimentary housings to this - the pinnacle of case godliness. My last 4 build have been with Corsair products - my main PC now running in a 275R which is compact, beautiful and efficient. I have also worked with InWin, Antec, and Cooler Master in the past. Corsair from day one just seemed to accumulate all of the best design features from all the other cases and do a great job of integrating them, resulting in attractive, quiet, and feature rich products. Which brings me to our current test sample.

    The 678C Low Noise Tempered Glass case embodies all of Corsair's best design efforts. First of all the design is beautiful. If you are a need-100%-tempered-glass-and-LEDs gamer bling-boy then maybe just move on, but I personally find this to be a beautiful and classy, adult case. You can see your components and access them easily through the large, hinged side glass panel, so make sure that your workspace will afford a view of the left hand side of the case, if that is important to you. In the pictures the front panel looks like it may be brushed metal, but it is not. However, it is a heavy, thick, molded plastic panel that is quite rugged and also attached with hinges that will allow front access for filter cleaning. Already these are remarkable improvements over other cases I have worked with in the past where you have to pull out a screw driver, Allen wrench (275R), or wrestle with thumb screws to access your case.

    There are two big compartments inside - one large upper compartment accessible from the front for all of your kit, and one lower compartment to separate your PSU. This is the ideal configuration to keep PSU heat from mingling with your main airflow.. The upper compartment is very spacious with a CD-ROM bay and 6 3.5" bays (although they only include cages for four). The drive cages easily remove from the rear of the case with 4 thumb screws. There is a large cutout behind the CPU/VRM area to allow for improved heat dissipation which is a helpful and thoughtful feature for either the over-clocker or the server admin hoping to preserve longevity of components. The front of the case can easily accommodate the biggest AIO radiator. The back panel has the usual, excellent wire-management features and routing areas and cut-outs.

    The top, front and side panels are bolstered with heavy, black sound dampening panels. These do seem to add considerable weight. There are also front, top and bottom fan filters and the case comes with three fans and a fan controller which appears to accommodate up to 6 fans. The instructions on how to use this are sparse and could definitely be better.

    Pros:
    Solid, well constructed
    Sound reduction
    Very attractive
    Capacious, expansive storage options
    Cooling capability
    Hinged doors for easy access
    Easy fan filter access
    Separate PSU compartment

    Cons:
    Big and heavy
    High price
    Thumb screws are a bit too small to operate easily by hand
    Instructions could be a lot better - especially around the fan controller/header

    Overall a extremely high quality and well though out case. As long as you can handle the size and weight, and the price, this seems to be a top offering in it's class.
