The Corsair Vengeance C70 is supplied in a no-frills brown box that provides adequate information about the case and its features.
On one side the box shows a line drawing of the case itself whilst the other side shows an exploded view of the sections of the case that are removable.
Just underneath this image are some of the features Corsair are especially proud of, and they have outlined them on the back of the case. This includes cooling specifications, tool-less design, storage support and GPU compatibility. Corsair have provided this information in a variety of languages, to cater for the international market.
Inside the box is an installation guide, warranty information and a small brown box with various screws, cable ties and a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter.
The case we were sent for review is the ‘Military Green’ version. This is reminiscent of an Army ammunition or supply box and would be ideal for avid gamers who love first-person shooters and military real time strategy games.
If this colour isn’t appealing then there are GunMetal Black and Arctic White versions available here.
Taking a closer look at the front panel, there is a sizable Bright Red power button, a much smaller drive activity light, line-in and microphone jacks and 2xUSB 3.0 slots.
There is also a dramatically designed reset switch, which is surrounded by a plastic shroud to prevent it being accidentally pressed. This features black and yellow angled hazard stripes, much like a missile launch button. I think this looks fantastic.
Towards the bottom of the front panel, a small Corsair badge is located in the middle of the mesh that provides air flow to any storage drives inside.
Corsair have taken a different approach to front air flow, as the fans that are traditionally seen mounted to the front panel (behind the mesh) have now been relocated to the hard drive caddy inside the case. This approach allows for higher unobstructed air flow inside the case and for increased cooling capability for the graphics card.
The side panels are pressed steel, the left hand windowed panel featuring a slightly smoked window that is clear on one side and features vents (with mounting holes) on the other, that allow for 2x 120mm or 2x 140mm fans to be installed.
The panel is removed by another innovative idea Corsair have introduced; top latches. Again this further adds to the ‘ammunition box’ theme and works surprisingly well, with a secure and positive action.
The bottom of the latch has to be lifted to its upright position for the clip to be removed from the top of the case. They are well weighted and won’t come undone accidentally.
At the rear of the Vengeance C70, you will find the standard 120mm fan exhaust vent and a multitude of perforated ventilation holes.
Taking a look at the top of the case, Corsair have catered for those who demand a case that is easily transported and have included two very sturdy handles at either end of the case. There is also a large perforated area in the top of the case that allows for additionally mounted fans or for 280mm radiator support.
