Manufacturer: Corsair

A Detailed Look – At the Inside

View Full Size

The Vengeance C70 Gaming case offers a lot of usable space inside for a mid-tower enclosure. Looking into the case from the left side reveals a fairly typical ATX mid-tower case layout with the power supply located at the bottom instead of up top.

The top section of the enclosure is dominated by the motherboard area, which features a large cutout opening behind the CPU area for easy access to mount CPU coolers. The C70 can accommodate large, tower-style CPU coolers up to ~165mm (6.5”) high.  There are several openings around the motherboard area trimmed in plastic for neatly routing cables and wires.

In the upper right are three 5.25” drive bays, which include very easy to use, tool-less drive locking mechanisms.

In the photos above you can see all three of the included 120mm case fans.

Looking down towards the bottom of the C70 case reveals two HDD cages towards the front and the power supply mounting area towards the back.

The two HDD cages can hold up to six HDDs, each with a tool-less slide-out drawer that mounts one 3.5” or 2.5” HDD/SSD. Both HDD cages can be removed and are secured with thumb screws. If you don’t need six HDDs you can remove one of the drive cages to make room for an extra-long graphics adapter card (upper) or bottom mounted dual fan radiator for water cooling (lower).

Removing the left side panel provides access to the areas behind the motherboard and beside all the drive cages, which offers a lot of options for neatly routing and concealing cables.

It may be the military background in me but it is a beautiful case to begin with. With all the cooling options, room for anything, and HANDLES! Love it.

This case is by far the best case I have ever worked with. Having assembled all my own systems for the last 15 years, I've had the experience of working with many various makes and models in the mid-tower range. This case has the look and feel of a heavy-duty ammo can, but once inside it's a thing of beauty with ease of access and total functionality.
Love this case!!!

Just built a system in this case, just an awesome mid-size case all around.

I am installing a motherboard, but this case does not include screws. Neither the motherboard. What spec should I use for obtaining these screws?
