What good are RGB-illuminated PC components if they have to toil away in the dark confines of an opaque PC chassis? Corsair's Crystal Series 570X RGB ATX case renders the question moot with four large panels of tempered glass. Corsair says the case has glass on "every side" of the case, though the rear and the bottom of the case still appear to be made of metal.
The 570X doesn't have any external drive bays, but it can accomodate just about anything else, including full-size ATX motherboards and radiators as large as 360mm in the front and 240mm in the top. Graphics cards as long as 14.5" (or 37 cm) will fit, but cards near the maximum length likely won't fit at the same time as large front-mounted radiators. Those who don't know how to delete data might be disappointed by the meager amount of drive mounts: two for 2.5" drives, and another pair for 3.5" spinners.
The tempered glass side panels can be installed and removed without any tools, as do the drive mounts. Three front-facing 120-mm RGB LED fans are included, along with an RGB controller. A plain-jane 120-mm fan comes fitted in the rear fan position. Buyers can add two additional 120-mm or 140-mm fans to the top of the case. The Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB ATX case will go $120, though there's no word on a street date just yet.
