Removing the side panels is very simple indeed and doesn’t require any tools. Simply pull the handle at the top of the side panel and remove it from the case.
The inside of the Graphite 780T is painted entirely in black, which should complement most component choices aesthetically. The interior layout is fairly standard, with all of the drive bays over on the right side of the case.
The drive bays themselves can easily be removed if you want to install a radiator into the front of the case. In this scenario, you can still make use of the three 2.5” drive mounts which can be accessed behind the right side panel.
Installing a solid state drive into these mounts is very simple. The plastic caddy clips around the drive, and then the pair can be clipped back into the chassis.
Fitting a motherboard into the case is very simple indeed thanks to the pre-installed stand-offs and the large amount of room available. There is a large cut out area in the motherboard tray to facilitate the installation off a CPU cooler too.
There is a large amount of room for long power supplies in the base of the chassis. We had no problem fitting our Seasonic Platinum 1000W into the case.
Corsair has cut a vast array of cable routing holes into the motherboard tray which make it very easy to achieve a tidy build. There is also a generous amount of room behind the motherboard tray for cable routing.
Finally we installed the graphics card into the system. This was perhaps the most difficult step of the installation process as the expansion slot screws are obstructed slightly by the case itself.
There is plenty of room in the case for all graphics card that are currently on sale. We installed two models into the system to ensure compatibility, the Asus RoG GeForce GTX 780Ti Matrix and the Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Vapor-X.
