Corsair Graphite 380T Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅29-08-14

The latched side panels on the much loved 600T wowed the industry back in 2010 and we’ve been eagerly awaiting more of the same. The 380T utilises a similar design ethos and although it’s locked down to Mini-ITX only we still really love it.

Corsair has produced a unique and exciting chassis in the 380T. It arrives as a fun and quirky design which is primarily designed for gamers attending such events as LAN parties. Having a reinforced carry handle makes the job of transporting this case to events such as this or a friend’s house easy.

Functionality is a word which describes 380T very well. Not only are the side panels easy to remove but inside, there are tool-free mechanisms for installing kit, plenty of hooks and space for ensuring excellent cable management and a handy three-speed fan controller for adjusting the noise/airflow within the chassis.

Although we are dealing with tight dimensions, 380T can still accommodate high-end components such as long graphics cards and 240mm radiators. Adding this compatibility makes it possible to drop in high-performance parts, which in turn gives the potential to build a mini-powerhouse.

380T can be purchased for just over the £100 mark ($120) which on the face of it may not sit well with Mini-ITX system builders but the cost is justified by the sheer volume of features that are on offer – even the included fans alone would cost £30-40. So it’s quite a fair buy!

380T is one of the best Mini-ITX cases we have had the pleasure of testing. This dainty little number is packed with features which project it forward as a high-performance chassis.
