Corsair Crystal Series 680X RGB Chassis Review

Conclusion and Verdict

In conclusion, the Crystal 680X RGB sets a new standard for the sheer amount of support and features that this chassis has to offer. Installation is a breeze thanks to the amount of room available by dedicating space for drives and plentiful cable management options and mostly tool-less installation. The chassis is aesthetically pleasing when fully assembled. The solid construction gives the Crystal 680X RGB an outstanding build quality without being overly heavy given the size of the chassis. For those interested in liquid cooling their system, the Corsair 680X RGB has plenty of room to offer support for up to four radiators!

Conversely, the only downside that I experienced was with the 2.5″ drive bays. There remained a little play after the solid-state drives were installed.
