Corsair Vengeance C70 Military Green vs. Thermaltake Level 10 GT Battle Edition Review
Vengeance C70 Internals
The C70's internal workings are excellent. In our opinion, this is about as close to perfection as you are going to get out of a mid-tower case. The fan cables are black, the I/O cables are black, the fans are black and the internal paint job is military green -- Corsair didn't cut many aesthetic corners.
Using a tool-less system, the 5.25" drive bays offer an ultra-quick and reliable way to install and remove devices. While majority of the tool-less designs we've used are clumsy and impractical, this design actually works very well. The two 3.5" drive cages are removable and each houses three drives. The quick release cradles support both 3.5" and 2.5" devices, while they help to make installation a breeze.
There is a massive 7.6" x 5.6" rectangular hole in the motherboard tray located where the CPU would be, offering easy heatsink installations and removals. As we've said in previous reviews, this is somewhat of a mainstay for all enthusiast-grade chassis, though this particular cutout is larger than we're used to.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of the Vengeance C70 is its first class cable management. Surrounding the motherboard tray are three large rectangular holes with rubber grommets that improve cable routing by allowing all the excess wires to be tucked away safely behind the motherboard tray.
The case offers a great deal of support for hardware with room for six 3.5"/2.5" drives, three 5.25" devices, eight expansion cards and a PSU upwards of 1000w. The C70 also features a reasonable amount of stock cooling with two 120mm intakes on the inside of the 3.5" cages, while an exhaust is in back.
