Corsair Carbide Clear 600C Overview
Each panel is made of mostly steel, with the exception of the windowed panel, which is acrylic. Accents are mostly plastic, but sturdy. For easy access to the interior, simply pull the latch and it opens smoothly on a pair of sturdy hinges. Also note, due to the inverted motherboard the window is on the opposite side of the case compared to traditional designs.
The front panel is unmarked except for a Corsair logo in the lower corner and another door covering the dual 5.25″ drive bays. This door is magnetized and opens easily, with a very solid hinge action that will likely remain intact through wear and tear. Behind the panel is a dust filter covering a pair of pre-installed 140mm fans. The filter is removable, but only by removing the entire front panel first.
As motherboard is inverted, of course the back panel is inverted as well. Beyond that, this panel basically identical to every other back panel in existence, with a PSU bracket, a pre-installed 140mm exhaust fan, and eight expansion slots.
The bottom panel features four rubberized feet along with a dust filter along the entire length. This filter slides out from the bottom. No fans are preinstalled here, but space is available for up to three 120mm or dual 140mm fans and the equivalent radiator.
The paneling does an admirable job of resisting fingerprints and dust, but those with more oily hands might want to watch out. The only other notable feature is the noise canceling padding found behind the front panel and along the top. It’s heavy, but not very thick, and I wonder how well it’ll actually dampen sound.
