Silent cases are nothing new. We’ve seen them for years and they are great, but they really aren’t much to look at. Well, Corsair has a new silent case in their Carbide 678C which tries to bring with it style and a nice large tempered glass window, while still offering sound-dampening features. This case definitely takes cues from Fractal Design’s Define Series, which is not a bad thing. While those cases are great there is always room for improvements on any product. The Carbide Series 678C is a larger mid tower case that has room inside for 9 hard drives, lots of watercooling, has a very large tempered glass removable side panel, three included 140 mm fans, and much more.
The Corsair Carbide 678C comes in Corsair’s typical case packaging which is a large cardboard box. On the front it just says “Carbide Series 678C” and lets us know that it is a “low noise” case. On the back there is an exploded view of the case showing off all of the different parts of the case.
Opening the box up we can see that the case is nicely protected by 2 large piece of Styrofoam and the case itself is in a plastic bag. Also the tempered glass panel has a plastic film on it.
