About this deal

Three Included 120mm RGB Fans: CORSAIR SP RGB ELITE fans utilize AirGuide anti-vortex vanes to concentrate airflow and enhance cooling. This PC case is not stingy at all when it comes to looks, and the first thing you will likely think after you’ve struggled to remove it from its packaging is, “Wow, that’s a lot of glass. Luckily, the bracket on this motherboard is already installed since it is being transferred from another computer. The process of removing the accessory cover looks about as irritating to wrestle with as the other internals. The Corsair iCUE RGB 5000x is a delightfully stylish case, sporting four tempered glass panels, 3 high quality RGB fans, and is a delight to build in once you push past the irritating accessories and covers inside.

Massive cooling potential provides room for multiple 360mm radiators, with three included 120mm SP RGB ELITE fans for enhanced cooling and vibrant lighting. I never said not to do that, just that it would have been helpful to see the thermals of the case with max cooling in addition to the review in its present state. While the size of the box the Corsair iCUE 5000x comes in is plenty surprising, actually seeing it in all its imposing and reflective splendor is much the same feeling as looking up at an impressive skyscraper. The spec sheet also lists a third 360mm radiator spot at the side intake, but that will only work if you remove the shroud, and you’ll have to keep the radiator thin to avoid running into the GPU.Tempered glass is featured not only on the left side, but also the front, top, and right side of the chassis. Keep in mind, there is a “motherboard accessory cover” on the back of the motherboard tray that, for some reason, conceals the area behind the PCB where you would screw in mounting brackets for a CPU cooler. This will be included within your account minimum payment request every month and cannot be repaid using Take 3.

The cable shroud is a little difficult to hold down and screw in from the back side, and it seems to press down a little too hard on the 24-pin power cable for the motherboard. The info provided is very important but, because of the focus taken in the review, the full thermal potential of the case is not shown. For some reason, the top screw on this particular case just won’t go in, so it will just have to stay unscrewed in case the threads get stripped or the case gets scratched.They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You would be hard-pressed to find a cooling setup or GPU that wouldn’t fit in this thing, and building inside of it doesn’t feel cramped in the slightest. Equipped with four premium iCUE QL120 RGB fans* boasting 136 individually addressable RGB LEDs, your build will radiate even more spellbinding colors and unparalleled lighting effects, while reaching speeds of up to 1,500 RPM.

Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). The top and front panels come off simply by gently pulling them out of their clips, off the chassis. We will introduce you exclusively to Newpay finance products provided by NewDay Limited under this Introducer Appointed Representative arrangement.With up to ten 120mm fan mounts, three included SP RGB ELITE fans with CORSAIR AirGuide technology and three seperate 360mm radiator locations, the only limit to your cooling options is your imagination. given that this case is unique (at least to my knowledge) in that it's tempered glass with fans in front and side, I was really looking to see thermal performance in its intended use caseReviews are done as the case is shipped.
