If you don’t know about Corsair, you’re either new to the world of custom PC’s, or you’re living under your desk. Best known for quality RAM, chassis designs, and power supplies, you can’t build a custom PC without looking at a component from Corsair. My current build uses both RAM and a PSU from Corsair. Possibly Corsair’s biggest market is in chassis design, with designs ranging from portable Mini-ITX (Graphite 380T) to silent mid-tower (Carbide 330R), dedicated water cooled designs (Obsidian 900D) to those designed to show off interiors (Graphite 760T).
Their latest design is part of the Carbide series, the Carbide Clear 600C and Quiet 600Q full-tower cases. The 600C features a large side panel window (much like the Graphite 760T) while the 600Q is designed for silence and water-cooling capability. Both designs feature an inverted motherboard mount intended to display the interior and improve airflow along with a PSU shroud, hidden HDD/SSD trays, and much more. Today we’ll be looking at the windowed version, the Carbide 600C.
