Corsair Graphite 780T

The case is constructed from steel and plastic material and is with physical dimensions that fit the Full tower chassis – 637mm x 288mm x 602mm. and when empty, Graphite 780T weighs 11.3 kg, which is not heavy at all for a case this size. In a typical Corsair Graphite series fashion the case follows a design which is admirable, or should I say most of Corsair cases follow that pattern, along with the new 780T. The edges of the case are soft and smooth and at the same time there is a futuristic aggression emerging from the case’s exterior. At the moment there are two versions available – white/black and yellow/black color schemes.

 What is the reason to own a case with such external design and not having the opportunity to show off all the hardware inside, so 780T comes with a huge acrylic window, placed on the side panel that even shows your 2.5″ drive bays – a good way to do a fashion show of your SSDs. And speaking of drives, 780T can fit up to six 3.5″/2.5″ drives in the HDD cage, also there are three dedicated 2.5″ drive bay rails and two 5.25″ ODD bays. Expansion slots are fully utilized for the Full tower case – 9 in total and the maximum supported GPU length is 355mm. The case has support for motherboards of the types: Mini-ITX, MicroATX, ATX, E-ATX and XL-ATX, so plenty of compatibility there. CPU cooler height limitation is 200mm, again a very high-end user oriented feature, allowing for the installation of the best CPU tower coolers.

Of course, the main feature of the big 780T case is indeed the cooling part. Out of the box there are three 140mm Corsair high quality fans included – two at the front as intakes and one at the rear as an exhaust. Additionally the case can be equipped with three 120mm fans on the top panel or two 140mm fans. If you’d like to change the cooling setup there are three slots for 120mm at the front and the 140mm at the back can also house a 120mm fan.

Corsair has also implemented water cooling radiator support with the 780T, and the users will be absolutely happy with what the case can be installed with, in terms of custom/reference water cooling parts:

  • Front: 240/280/360mm radiator
    Top: 240/280/360mm radiator
    Rear: 120/140mm radiator
    Bottom: 240mm radiator

On the front panel there the usual USB ports available – two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, audio jacks and a very lovely feature in addition to the pre-installed fans – a fan controller with LED indicators for different speed levels.

    hey Nikola, wouldn’t you want to pull air into your water cooler instead of out? this would be better because you want to cool your water that cools your pc. just some advice!

      Hi there William,
      there are different setup options for water cooling, depending on the needs, of course. Usually it is best to provide fresh cool air from the outside through the water cooling radiator.
      Could you be a little more specific with your advice, so that I am sure I follow you correctly?

      Thanks
