Corsair 760T Owners Club - Page 3

post #21 of 1664
I'm sure we would be looking at some different hinges of some sort in that case (no pun intended).

George I am glad you are here and active with the community. I saw your reveal video of the 760t at CES with LinusTechTips. You did a dang good job and were pretty cool about the whole deal. Seems like a lot of people like you, keep up the good work. Also, its really cool to be able to freely talk about it with the Global Product Manager, someone high up.

Thanks again.

On a side note however, will there be some kind of cover or filter for a majority of the case fans or is it only going to be a select few. In addition to that, is there going to be a cover for the top grate just in case someone decides not to put anything up there? It could be somewhat of a peace of mind deal for people that don't want things falling down into their case from the top grates.

EDIT: Also now that I am thinking. I don't know what I want to do with this new chassis, how I want the fans setup, how I want the internal pressure level, where I will setup my exhausts and intakes. I have always had side panel fans so this is all brand new to me. I am going to have to rework my traditional layout and start with a new and better one. Any opinions on pressure and fan placement on this one boys? Heck, George what is your take on the situation with the pressure and fan placement?

Awwh man its now the end of the month, I thought it was the 17th. Like some of the previous posters I have a room full of parts getting lonely.

Will be worth the wait.

George, is the ample space on bottom of the case to mount a PSU and 120mm fan? It looks like just one drive cage would need to be removed to mount the fan. I am then worried about clearance to the electrical connections on a modular PSU.

I think I get the design intent, but I still don't really like that window that goes over the not-so-clean HDD cages / 5.25 bays.
The whole window framing situation is kinda weird - half of the PSU exposed / half not etc...feels a definite step forward from the 660t internally, but the exterior - I don't know. Seems the design team wasn't refining the design with components in to visualize it a tad better, much like in my field high-design spaces/buildings are sometimes designed as "sculptures" with no consideration for the occupants. Unless ofc you rip all those cages out, and have the front populated with a custom WC rig - cool, yet a very small % of the real owners will go all-the-way.

The 760T is definitely more elegant than many cases (competition is picking up too in this field) and good in the bigger picture, still I prefer my AIR 540 layout wise. If only we could get that cool SSD mount for it tho rolleyes.gif

In general I think going "Flat" in the back of the MoBo tray is a good solution to get HDDs/SSDs out of the way. Its more cumbersome to add/remove drives, but most enthusiasts have moved away from the "hot-swappable-HDD-ala-server-case" look. Very few owners of such cases will use more than 1-2x HDDs, and even fewer will have the need to access them that often for the cages to occupy such a prominent position.


You should populate the HDD cages in those promo pics - it looks too empty

Hey George, thanks for the pics and the updated shipping time frame. Is it going to be possible to remove all of the drive trays 3.5" and 2.5" from the front/bottom of the chassis?

Yup. The internals of the 760T/730T and the 750D are identical with one change: the 750D has room for a 240mm on the bottom, and the 760T/730T does not, due to the slope of the bottom metal piece.

I was the same - switched to a 540 just after christmas because I couldn't find a 750 in stock anywhere at a reasonable price. Have just spotted this now though and the 750D is a distant memory.

mad.gif Wow this whole availability issue is really making me angry. Newegg OF COURSE did not have enough 760t's in stock to ship me my pre-ordered one. Now I have to wait until April 11th to even HOPE to see it. This is really getting me heated - newly acquired parts have to sit longer aaaaannnnndddd of course now some things will be out of manufacturer warranty if I find they are defective with the new build. Fee-freaking-nominal, this is turning out to be a great start. At this rate I might as well return this X79 ROG board, RAM, and Intel-E CPU and wait for Haswell-E to hit. mad.gif

Oh wait.... THOSE HAVE SAT TO LONG ALREADY ANYWAY
