It has been quite a while since we’ve seen a major case release from Corsair. They have been focusing heavily on their all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, gaming products and power supplies, but they haven’t forgot about cases. Today we will be taking a look at a brand new case from Corsair that has elegant minimalist design on the outside, but inside it is anything but that. This is the first case from Corsair that I know of that will feature an inverted-ATX layout. On top of that inside you have plenty of room for storage, watercooling and even a power supply shroud that keeps everything inside looking nice. Corsair will be releasing two versions of this case, a 600C which features a clear side panel to show off your gear inside and a 600Q (which we are reviewing) that has sound-dampening properties and normal side panels. Let’s see what Corsair’s new case is all about!
Special thanks to Corsair for providing us with the Carbide Series 600Q Case to review.
The Carbide Series 600Q comes in Corsair’s typical case packaging. On the front it shows a shot of the 600Q and lists some of the main features.
Moving around to the other side of the package there is an exploded view of the case showing all of its parts.
Opening the package up inside we find the case nicely protected by two large pieces of Styrofoam and a cloth bag. This will prevent the case from getting damaged in transit.
With the case you will find an extra AF140L cooling fan, mounting hardware, a few cable ties and a installation guide.
