About this deal

With the dual lighting zones, both in the hub and ring of each fan, they are clearly visible as soon as the computer is powered on. An interesting takeaway from this test is how little of a difference there is in sound levels in our GPU and CPU test. Corsair went over this chassis with a fine-toothed comb and tried to iron out every last detail in almost all aspects.

Below the diagram are eleven languages covering the list of parts from A to L, corresponding to the letters noted in the rendering. Out back, we find an empty 120mm fan mount with screw slots that allow for height adjustment of any fan or small radiator you might install here. The front and top panels can support either 280mm or 360mm radiators, while the rear and motherboard panels can support 120mm and 360mm respectively.If we turn the chassis to the side, you find that the iCUE 5000T is shipped with RGB LED strips on the top, down the front, and along the bottom, which is repeated on the other side. While it may be considered overkill on paper, this embedded design does allow users to make tangible use of the iCUE software and Commander Core XT hardware. There are removable covers in the expansion slots; they all use thumbscrews, and the back of the chassis is well ventilated, but where is the exhaust fan?

While we like the -_- seen at the back edge of the cover and the new //5000T name placement, it comes with an issue. Once installed into the chassis, it does not ride flush, and it sits closer when the thumbscrew is not locked into the chassis floor, but that pressure tweaks this cover, making it an eyesore and not worth using to us. Tearing the chassis down this far in the front did make us realize how much easier the chassis will be to work with, and then when near completion, we reinstall this portion of the chassis.Memory-module mogul Corsair has not produced a “true” high-end PC case ever since it dipped its toe in the market a dozen years ago with the Obsidian Series 800D. Our second discovered deviation from Corsair’s specs is that while the manual states that the cable cover must be removed to install side fans, this task can be achieved by removing and reinstalling the fan bracket. We will be going on a very detailed trip around, in, and over this chassis, so grab a drink, maybe a snack, and get ready for one of the longest reviews we have ever written. The space between the fan brackets and cable cover is more than adequate to install 25mm-thick fans, and the cable cover is designed to act as a fan shroud.
