Corsair 570X

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So a couple of months ago, I treated myself to a rig upgrade. New PSU, water cooling, NVME etc etc. Among that, I decided to scale down to a 570X from my 750D and I wanted to share my thoughts for anyone considering it. 

 

The first thing I have to say is manage your expectations. If you go to youtube, you're going to see high quality glam footage of it, and admittedly it looks STUNNING when you put some love into it (and the post editing). For the average joe, building a PC in this thing could be "challenging." I spent too much time cursing at cable management and dirty glass, so keep those in mind. Without further hesitation, I'm going to cover some critical points. 

 

The cable management cover... Well, to say I have a love hate relationship with it is an understatement. Like a good friend, it shields you from the horrific part of your PC... The cables... But my good god is it difficult to work with... In my build, I'm running 2x 6 pin PSU cables, 1x 24 Pin, 2x Sata power, 2x Sata data, USB 3, HD Audio, Top Panel buttons and 11 cooling orientated cables (6 fan headers, 5 corsair RGB headers). So to say it's a tight squeeze in there is a huge understatement. For your first time working with this case, you'll possibly struggle like I did. 

 

The Hard Drive mounting brackets are cool, I like them a bunch actually. They're in a convenient location, they are easy to reach. HOWEVER, I don't know what psychopath at Corsair decided that the green PCB should be on display.. It is the biggest eyesore of this case... I fiddled around, trying to fit the drives in the other way round, but it's not happening sadly. If you're using Sata SSDs though, you'll be fine!

 

For my build I decided to water cool for the first time and like a lot of people, I gravitated towards the EK Fluid Gaming A360G all in one kit. As a result of the compactness of the case, you're gonna have to improve with the mounting holes at the bottom of the case for your res/pump. I ended up using an assortment of screws and such to try and get it sitting without causing noise. But it can be done. 

 

There's not much else to say about this case, it is beautiful like you see in the youtube videos, but a tip for anyone building in this for the first time... Come equipped with lots of patience... 

 

Stick with it... The end result can be beautiful!

The 570x is a case you really have to see in person, in photographs it's simply not done justice.

My roommate has one. One of the nicest cases I've ever seen. It also somehow manages to keep dust out better than any other case I've seen.

Absolutely, the 570X is a case you have to see in person to appreciate it... I run it with 5 Corsair LL120 fans and my god it's gorgeous

Finally seen one in person and had to build a loop in it. Easiest build I’ve ever done. 

 

Wouldnt mind getting one myself but I hate using intake with rads. Maybe when I give up water cooling.

I'm considering bumping up the number of fans in my build. Currently the 3 RGB fans aren't really doing the job on the 360mm rad so I may try to add another 3 static pressure fans on the other side of the rad as well to see if I can negate the poor airflow
