We were not that much inclined towards Corsair’s Crystal 280X chassis in some forums earlier. The pictures and informations there were not enough to judge this case. Corsair showcased the case at Computex 2018, and it seems to turn around gold.
Looks simple and compact and there it starts!
It’s a glass-RGB box, rather we’d say. This case has tempered class on it’s top, side and front. Available in either black or white, this case comes with RGB fans and controller for 160 USD or without for 110 USD.
The case is such wide that one can easily hide the power supply, storage and cables easily. That’d would make the exposed contents more smart.
This case would simply be usual RGB case with the fans and all, but with the case built up it looked glorious. At least, we can judge this by the newer images of it and discussions everywhere.
If you want a short simple compact case then you might shortlist this one.
Here is a small comparison between the RGB and the non-RGB ones.
