Cases & PSU/Cases by leeghoofd @ 2014-09-02

During Computex 2014, Corsair have shown their latest additions to their gaming enclosures. Besides the Carbide Air 250, a shrinked version of their popular 540 Air Cube case, Corsair jumped on the ultra portable mITX gaming enclosures band wagon with the new Graphite 380T, a futuristic design with rounded corners, featuring a big carrying handle and designed to support long graphics cards with ease. With the build-in 3 speed fan controller and room for up to five fans this little case could ultimately cool your mini gaming powerhouse. If this hasn't drawn your attention, maybe one of the flashy color schemes will. Time to open the package and show what this case has got in its margin...

The Corsair Graphite 380T is a stunning looking portable mITX case. The attractive futuristic design is available in three different color schemes: black, yellow and white. The black model retails around 10 dollars cheaper than the other two colored versions. The huge 140mm LED fan is clearly visible through the meshed front grill.


In fact this case is almost completely ventilated, meaning even the two easily removable side panels are almost fully meshed. Hot air remaining trapped in this gaming oriented case is nearly impossible if not impossible. Both side panels can be opened by simple pulling the latch, no screwdriver or anything required. Compare opening your Graphite 380T with the doors on one of them fancy super sport scars.




With both panels removed one spots a typical layout for mITX cases; with the motherboard being positioned horizontally. Below the motherboard there is room to house  the power supply. Due to space constraints the latter will have to be inserted via the aft of the case. A dual HDD cage is mounted in front of the power supply. The front of the case is aggressive with the big front meshed grill. With two gentle pushes on both the top corners, the front grill, inclusive dust filter drops out. The front fan is an LED version, white for the yellow and white cases, the black 380T features a red LED front fan.
