Corsair Vengeance C70 review

Let's start off with the review. As always we begin with packaging. It's a simple yet informative thing to show as when you purchase a chassis, you honestly do not want any defects and scratches on it. The C70 is packaged in cardboard.
Once you take the unit out of the cardboard box you'll notice two layers of foam protecting the unit, which on its end is covered in a plastic bag. Packaging was done carefully and the chances of damage and risk thanks to that are minimal.
So there she is, it looks like military equipment alright. The design is kept simple, not at all screaming with lights and logos accompanied by the military-green design that is easy on the eyes. Less is better, and that works out well here.
The chassis is made out of a steel structure including the bezel. As you can see at the front side, it supports (x3) 5.25", internally you can house six (6x) 3.5/2.5 in the hard drive bays .
When we flip around the unit we can see the side panel and back a little better. Again, simple but stylish. The panels can be removed with two hinges located on the top (we'll show you that in detail later). The left side panel has two fan mounts and an accompanying mesh.
The size of the chassis by the way is 501mm (H) x 232mm (W) x 533mm (L). The C70 actually has many fan mounting points for plenty of cooling. Three 120mm fans two in the front behind the HDD cage, and one in the rear are included.
The backside itself reveals a thing or two as well. Next to the top left rear IO we spot that 3rd 120mm fan. All three fans in this chassis can be PWM fan controlled, but no fan controller is included though. Next to the 8 expansion slots we see two holes that you can open up and use, these could be used for some sort of external liquid cooling.
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.
