07 Feb, 2020   Rakesh Sharma    Reviews Corsair iCUE 465X RGB Case Review

During my initial custom PC builds about 15-20 year back mostly there were only white coloured PC cabinets/chassis available. A black coloured PC build was consider exotic and expensive too, mostly because earlier CRT monitor manufacturers use to product mostly white coloured monitors and white was the default theme for a custom PC build.

Now after introduction of LCD monitors, a black coloured PC cases became the mainstream colour option and white PC chassis are slowing started showing as premium segment product.

Today we are reviewing a mid-tower ATX White case from Corsair, the Corsair iCUE 465X RGB Case. Mid-tower ATX smart case that offers brilliant software-controlled lighting out of the box with three LL120 RGB fans and two tempered glass panels.

Now let’s have a look on what features does Corsair 465X case have for us.
