Corsair Crystal Series 680X RGB Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅01-04-19

We haven’t seen many cases in this genre of dual-chamber but we can definitely see the appeal. Having the ability to separate components and compartmentalise is a venture which is welcomed by system builders who are keen to keep the configuration tidy and want easy access to their kit.

The 680X is a joy to work with from start to finish and even though it doesn’t have much depth on the physical dimensions, it is still able to accommodate high-performance kit. Storage is well catered for and straight out of the box we have four cooling fans included – all of which contribute to excellent thermal performance.

The only two concerns we really have with this case are noise and price. Since the glass panels on 680X are offset and due to airflow being its forte, noise emission comes as the trade-off. Costing a weighty UK: £219 US: $250 AUD: $379 is probably beyond the budget of many system builders. We are however reminded that 680X arrives with those four cooling fans and that this is a remarkably unique offering too.

If you can stomach the price, the 680X is a stunning dual-chamber chassis which has a lot to give. If airflow and a dazzling light show is your thing, look no further!
