Corsair Crystal Series 570X Tempered Glass Case Review
Inside the 570X
While we don't really need to take off the glass side panels to look inside the Crystal Series 570X, it does make it easier to photograph (and avoids a bunch of unintential selfies from yours truly).
All glass panels are suspended from rubberized mounts at each corner, and secured with cushioned thumbscrews. I'll add that these glass panels are very substantial, and are quite heavy as side panels go.
I'll stop here to quickly cover the large screen air filters located just below the front and top glass panels, beginning with the front:
Both of these are magnetically-attached filters, and are particularly easy to get to thanks to the easily-removed glass panels.
The upper dust filter
From a maintenance standpoint, this 570X is a case I could happily live with in a dusty house, and the glass panels can be kept spotless easily with a microfiber cloth.
Now let's look inside!
The component chamber is generous, though the shroud at the bottom of the case reduces the vertical space around the motherboard. The shroud (which hides the power supply) is metal, and the corsair logo affixed to it lights up when the case is powered on.
The right side of the case is open all the way to the bottom of the enclosure, leaving room for big radiators.
Out of the box this space is occupied by a trio of RGB fans on a removable metal tray, and lighting or these is controlled from the I/O panel up top. (No fan speed control, however.)
Inside the back we have the familiar mid-tower setup, with 7 expansion slots and a 120 mm exhaust fan.
Up top is more interesting, as we have another removable metal tray for the upper fan mounts:
A thumbscrew on each side releases the tray, making the 570X one of the best enclosures available for easy liquid cooler installation.
Turning the car around we see the two 3.5” hard drive trays on the left, and a pair of pop-out SSD slots below the motherboard cutout. In between there is the RGB fan control block.
Up on the top right there is an RGB control for the front fans, though this is redundant with the top I/O control.
Next we'll go over the build process with the 570X.
