Corsair are back once again with yet another flagship chassis product; the Graphite 780T. Their latest chassis is a premium grade full-tower, set to be the new king of their popular Graphite series which already has several award-winning chassis products in its range, such as the popular 600T.
We first saw this chassis at Computex 2014 earlier this year, not that we could miss it given that this chassis is certainly on the larger side. Our initial impression of the case were good, it looked stunning and packed full of features, but this week is the first time we’ve been able to get properly hands on with it and take a good long look at what it has to offer. At £150 the 780T isn’t cheap, so there’s no doubt that this is for the high-end user/enthusiast market. This means it needs to offer some pretty impressive features, build quality and a whole lot more to justify the wallet busting price tag.
As you can see from the specifications below this chassis is incredibly capable, with support for everything from tiny Mini-ITX motherboards right up to E-ATX, so even workstation motherboards will be right at home here. There is an abundance of storage bays, as well as extra dedicated 2.5″ bays, room for four radiators ranging in size from 120mm right up to 360mm, as well as plenty of room for taller CPU coolers. There are 9 expansion slots that’ll be ideal for multi-GPU configurations and with 355mm GPU support, you’ll have no trouble getting even the largest cards on the market into this chassis.
The packaging is pretty straight forward, with a mock-up of the chassis on the front.
Around the back you’ll find a breakdown image detailing all of the major components and the chassis specifications are on the side of the box (see above).
In the box you’ll find the chassis, which comes with protective film on the side panel, around the front panel and protective tape to hold the dust filter covers in place while in transit.
In the box you’ll also find a smaller package with all the major fitting screws and a few cable ties.
