Cons

  • High Price

At conclusion with reviewing the Corsair CARBIDE SERIES 678C Case we find that the case offers very good stylish design with great acoustic performance. The case is designed for storage solution builds with lot of Hard drives mounting and sound dampening provided with the case. I use the case as a Free NAS storage box with 6 x 4TB HDDs and 512 SDD. The includes 3x 140mm PWM fans provides decent air flow to keep HDDs and system cool and silent.

Finally at a price tag of Rs. 21K(approx.) the Corsair CARBIDE SERIES 678C case is on expensive side, but if you are looking for a silent storage solution builds in Mid tower case, the Corsair CARBIDE SERIES 678C case is must to be considered and worthy of PC TeK REVIEWS Choice award for stylish and silent case.
