After the launch of the series 4000 in 2020 and series 5000 at the beginning of 2021, reviewed by us in the various versions directly on the portal or through our YouTube channel Prophecy Tech by Nexthardware, CORSAIR has decided to think and act even bigger …
With the cases of the 7000 series, as you can guess from the name, there is a return, in a “modern key”, of what, at least in size, would seem to be the direct successors of the 700D, designed, therefore, for those looking for of solutions capable of hosting high-end gaming configurations and even complex liquid systems without compromising.
Presented both in the iCUE 7000X RGB variant, i.e. with multiple glass bulkheads and ARGB lighting system, and in the one under review, i.e. the 7000D AIRFLOW with mesh front panel, designed to offer the maximum in terms of ventilation, the new cases incorporate the shapes and style of the smaller 5000, significantly increasing their size, the number of predispositions for the fans and, above all, the number of usable drives, namely six 3.5 “and four 2.5”, feature which could be useful for those who need to install RAID configurations typical of a home server.
Such an internal space, in fact, allows you to install a wide range of configurations to manage the most advanced cooling systems, supporting up to twelve 120mm or seven 140mm fans, or more radiators simultaneously.
The dedicated card tray allows, among other things, to mount up to four 120mm fans or a radiator with a maximum size of 480mm.
The 7000D AIRFLOW comes standard with three 140mm fans with AirGuide technology, which allow you to channel the airflow by concentrating it on the hottest components, while the 7000X RGB will certainly not go unnoticed thanks to the flamboyant ARGB lighting offered by the four SP140 RGB fans. ELITE, each comprising eight individually adjustable LEDs via the included iCUE COMMANDER CORE XT controller, coupled with powerful proprietary software.
The tempered glass left panel allows both models to showcase key hardware components, while the interior space is organized to cleverly conceal cables.
The CORSAIR RapidRoute cable management system, in fact, allows you to route the main cables in a single hidden channel and boasts 30mm of space between the motherboard tray and the right side panel.
The three-slot portrait stand, located on the power supply compartment cover, also allows you to install a video card of any size in the center of the system.
Before continuing we leave you, as usual, to the table containing the main technical specifications of the protagonist of our review.
