Corsair Graphite Series 600T White edition review

That Corsair can make some pretty snazzy hardware is not a secret, and that the manufacturer can make some pretty dandy PC cases isn't a secret either. We've been looking into their Obsidian chassis series, but they do have that other series as well ... the Graphite Series. Initially launched last year.
It was time for an upgrade though, so the designing minions in the dark caves of Corsair's R&D facility started thinking, brainstorming and came up with a fresh idea, yep the Graphite Series could use an update. So the team came up with a special edition series chassis, the White Graphite Series 600T Mid-Tower Case as reviewed today. This little white colored beast has five exposed 5.25-inch drive bays, immediately hinting this chassis to be a mid-tower chassis.
Make no mistake though, mid-tower or not it can house a lot of kit, for example up to six 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives, which can be either HDDs or SSDs, depending on what you prefer of course.

One of the more intricate details of the chassis is a big-ass knob on top of the chassis, it hints towards a volume knob yet it's actually a fan controller, we think that's brilliant stuff really. Pure smooth -- as one of our forum regulars would say.
Just below it you'll spot four USB 2.0 ports, as well as a FireWire connector and sure, they throw in a USB 3.0 connector as well. You'll also stumble into a pair of 200mm fans, with white LEDs of course, for a strong visual impression. There are more fans though as Corsair injected an extra fan (120mm) located in the rear of the chassis.
The Graphite Series 600T White Edition is made of steel with molded ABS plastic accent pieces and is coated black on the inside and white in the outside.
The Corsair Graphite Series 600T White edition is slowly becoming available in stores as we speak at a rather steep retail price of 159,-/ $179.99, it will come with a 2-year warranty though. Anyway, have a peek at the product after which we'll dive straight into the photo-shoot, oh and let me just state that photographing a white chassis in a white background, oh lordy-lordy that's a challenge alright. We do hope you can appreciate the photo-shoot.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
