that's more along the lines of my thinking with regards to the lack of build quality. this product is innovative in such an important way that it is likely to be the first attempt at a new style of case.

it's undeniable that hardware itself, especially enthusiast-grade hardware, has excelled ten fold in terms of aesthetics in the past 5 years alone. even RoG products (like the Maximus II Formula) from 5 or 6 years ago would look ridiculous in a modern enclosure.

building on that evolution, it only makes sense to have a case which offers a "cinematic" view of the meticulously-crafted innards of your PC. this is a first step, maybe not a "great" one, but a pre-requisite to everything which follows, certainly.

at this point, I'm more than happy to cough up the $200 to fund R&D for the next iteration of Graphite Series cases! smile.gif

Or even Cooler Master. I've owned plenty of CM cases, and they are all high quality. I just received my first NZXT case and it seems very well made as well.

Before receiving this NZXT Phantom 630, I believed that for functionality and build quality CM and Corsair were tops (even though I've gotten a defective case from Corsair before). I've stayed away from the NZXT because of their gaudy styling, but the newer stuff isn't as bad.

Never did I think that the 760t would look so.....flimsy. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Flimsy by what standards? You certainly aren't comparing it to a chair I hope... It should be sitting on the floor or a desk completely free of any object putting absurd pressure on it to the point where it displays loss of structural integrity. After seeing the reviews on YouTube, I am securely confident in my assumption that the case is sound. Like George even stated, it uses the same motherboard platform tray the 750D uses. That's the heart of the of structure right there, the added 45 degree elbow joints on all four corners of case show they are marking sure it is fine.

I have full faith in the case and its architecture, with the family being in the construction business, even they agree that the rigidity of the design is more than adequate. Wait until NZXT makes a 75% plastic one then we can compare flimsiness.

I expect it to be nothing like my Cooler Master HAF X in terms of sheer tankiness, but surely it's built fine. I'm sure George would be more than happy to take care of any defects or abnormalities in the case that you may receive. Call me fanboying over a product I don't yet posses if you please, but don't judge the frickin' thing on the way it appears.

It was even shown at CES with a fully loaded RoG IV with 4 R9 280x's in it. If it can support that without popping a bracket, I think we can all sleep peacefully night knowing George isn't screwing us with a market "test" case.

TL;DR - It''s certainly not flimsy, sit on your's and tell me the results. I want to be surprised...

I just think at this point reviewers have to search hard to find negatives, even if there's nearly zero drawbacks to it in practical use.

So ding us for not putting a dust filter on the top, it's fair. We didn't. We also don't see the point of putting dust filters on exhaust ports, and if you want a cover, we included one. But nonetheless, he's right - there's no dust filter on the top of the 760T.

The sides? They're flexible. They're made of transparent plastic, guys. Hell, even acrylic fish tanks have flex to each panel. And they are built to hold hundreds of gallons of water. Your PC isn't.

So the door is "flimsy" and the case has flex? Take the doors of any case in the world and do that same flex test. It's going to happen.

We do extensive drop tests. We do a lot of work to ensure quality in a real-world usage scenario.

So yes - the doors on the 760T are not solid steel and are thus more flexible. You got me. If that makes you feel uncomfortable or it makes you feel like it's "flimsy", then by all means, buy some other case.

What bugs me is a lot of people who've never seen the thing in person getting a bad feeling for a case's build quality based on the words of a couple of reviewers. We had about two dozen reviews of the 760T go live yesterday. Two or three mentioned the flexibility of the side panels. And even they said the case was good overall.

At this point, if you don't like the tiny little things in mentioned in the CONS section of a major review, that's cool.

The 760T, for about the same price as the 600T before it, give or take $10, offers WAY more features and expansion. Better aircooling, better liquid cooling, more GPU room, more tool-free options, an innovative window design that nobody else has ever done, etc. The PROS section of each review is phenomenal, and every single person would tell you that this case is going to be a breeze to build your next system in and it's going to look great and perform great when it's done.

But if those two or three CONS that reviewers are trying so hard to come up with to maintain credibility are so important to you, then by all means, go find a case that better suits your needs.

Thank you George for elaborating on what I was stating. I can't understand why people are bashing on the flexible properties of the side panels. ITS GOING TO HAPPEN

I think you misunderstood what I said. I fully agree that the side panels should and will have flex. That is the nature of the beast! It's glass/plexi/plastic/whatever for goodness' sake. That stuff flexes when you get a whole sheet of it (if you don't believe me, go visit your local Home Depot and check out the plexi).

The case is gorgeous, the window is freakin sexy. The issue I have is the motherboard tray. That item concerns me. As to Corsair quality in general the only other two cases I can compare to (of theirs that I've owned) are a 800D and a 540 Air. The 800D I had nothing but issues, the screws holes didn't line up, the hot swaps didn't line up, etc etc. I stayed away from Corsair cases until someone told me to check out the Air540, and I've liked that case, however for my needs it is too small now.

I pre-ordered the 760t back in Feb and eagerly awaited its release, however when the first ETA (as stated by George and Newegg) came and passed I started looking for a new case to fit my first custom loop into. I ordered the CM Stacker, at the request of my wife, and once I got it....it's just too freaking big! Built well, but way too large.

I then ordered a Phantom 630 (after much research) and got it yesterday. The insides are metal, but the outside shell is plastic. Obviously I am not going to sit on this case (however I would have sat on my old HAF ;-)), but the whole frame doesn't bend. Also, guess what. the side panel (with the full size window) flexes a bunch too, but I know how that stuff works so it's not an issue (same as how the 760t does).

I have since found an issue with the Phantom 630 too, and that's that my rads don't mount (nor fit) where NZXT told me that they would. I don't know what I'm going to do. I miss my desktop, and want to play Titanfall, D3 XP, and ESO on my desktop. I still have the 760t on pre-order from Newegg at this time.

Anyway, sorry for my rant and hijacking the thread, but I say all this to say that every case has faults and issues. I think the 760t is sexy, but I'm not sure it's for me. Maybe I was too excited about it, maybe I hyped it up too much in my own mind and now I'm disappointed, I don't know. I may even still get it, but at this point I just want a working desktop, and this case is still 3 weeks away from being shipped.

We are all in the same boat dude. I feel ya. We are all chomping at the bit to get one and nobody is getting any because of the shipment getting screwed up or whatever. Everybody is on edge...
post #68 of 1664
I think there is alot of speculation and negative comments from watching someone elses opinions on a video when the product isnt in the consumers hands yet. My opinion is soley based on the looks from pictures and as a satisfied owner of corsair products. Seriously I was raised if you dont have something nice to say don't say anything at all. People who are excited for this new product are coming to threads like this to share excitement.

@CorsairGeorge,

The Andandtech review says North American availability is set for late April now. is that correct?

is this the same time-frame we can expect pre-orders to start shipping out?

thanks for any insight
