Today Corsair announced three new enclosures in a lineup covering the ATX, micro-ATX, and mini-ITX form factors.
Carbide Series AIR 240
The first announcement is a smaller version of the popular Carbide AIR 540, which promises big cooling with a small footprint. The Air 240 supports micro-ATX and mini-ITX motherboards, comes equipped with three of Corsair's high performance AF120 fans, and can support 240mm radiators and long graphics cards.
The Carbide Series AIR 240 will be shipping in August in both black and white color schemes, with a list price between $89 - $99.
Graphite 780T in black
The Graphite 780T is a full tower case dripping with features and functionality. With a style similar to the 600T more than the previous 760T, it has the same distinctive, rounded look of that earlier Graphite case.
Like all of today's announced cases, the 780T also comes in white
The 780T features premium latched side panels, a huge interior, and mammoth water cooling support (like, dual 360mm radiator support!), along with space for up to 9 hard drives. The Graphite 780T also includes three 140mm AF140 fans, and the case has an integrated 3-speed fan controller along with a “Start/Stop” button that looks like it came from a late-model car.
The Graphite 780T will be available in September and listed prices are expected to range from $179.99 - $189.99.
My personal favorite from this group, this full-featured case is Corsair's no compromise approach to mini-ITX, and looks like a miniature version of the 780T (or a really deluxe igloo cooler). It supports full-length graphics cards, 240mm radiators, and up to four 3.5"/2.5" hard drives - and the features don't stop here. The 380T has latched side panels (similar to the larger 780T), includes both 120mm and 140mm AF-series fans, and has a 3-speed fan controller.
The Graphite 380T will be available in August in white and black versions with a list price of $129.99.
