About this deal

With up to ten 120mm fan mounts, three included SP RGB ELITE fans with CORSAIR AirGuide technology and three seperate 360mm radiator locations, the only limit to your cooling options is your imagination. Inside the main compartment of the Corsair 5000X, there is room for up to ATX-size motherboards, GPUs up to 420 mm long and CPU coolers up to 170mm tall.

Three Included 120mm RGB Fans: CORSAIR SP RGB ELITE fans utilize AirGuide anti-vortex vanes to concentrate airflow and enhance cooling. inch drives, though all-in-all, this setup will leave storage enthusiasts wanting, and I expected more 3. The screws that hold in a lot of these pieces are not easy to locate by eye, and the manual that comes with the case isn’t the easiest to read, so proceed with caution and make sure all screws are removed before trying to remove pieces.

A spacious interior fits up to 10x 120mm or 4x 140mm cooling fans, along with multiple radiators including up to a 360mm in front and a 360mm push/pull in the roof. The space at the front of the case goes largely unused, though is of course necessary to create the clearance required to add the side intake. With the Obsidian 5000X we have on the test bench today, Corsair addresses these concerns with an added intake on the right side of the case to aid the restricted front glass intake. PayPal Pay in 3 is a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH. Screwing the motherboard fan mount back in is a little fiddly as well due to two hand screws that go inside the front corner of the case.

If you want to populate all the fan slots, you’ll be busy for a while as you can fit another three fans on the side, three 120mm spinners at the top (or 2x 140), and another 120mm or 140mm spinner at the rear exhaust. They would look good on the backside as they are, but the case also comes with an easily removable steel door that covers up the entire back side of the motherboard tray. This, of course, is the result of making the case slightly deeper to make room for the side intake, and the case is also slightly taller to make space for thicker radiators at the top. To use the added cooling potential it has over the 4000X, you need to purchase another three fans for the side intake, or else you might as well skip this case and go for the cheaper and smaller 4000X.The colours provided show a representation of the colour options available and may differ slightly in person. Quickly and easily route your major cables through a single hidden channel, with a roomy 25mm of space behind the motherboard for all of your cables, easily concealed by a hinged steel door. When it comes to cooling, I feel like the Corsair 5000X RGB exists mostly because the 4000X RGB was so restricted for intake that thermals suffered. Four tempered glass panels show off your showpiece-worthy PC, while generous dust-filtered air channels provide minimal obstruction and ample airflow. I never said not to do that, just that it would have been helpful to see the thermals of the case with max cooling in addition to the review in its present state.

Phronetic said:This review acknowledges that this case is meant to be used with an AIO on top and all fan slots populated but doesn't show thermals for that configuration. Equipped with four premium iCUE QL120 RGB fans* boasting 136 individually addressable RGB LEDs, your build will radiate even more spellbinding colors and unparalleled lighting effects, while reaching speeds of up to 1,500 RPM. This will be included within your account minimum payment request every month and cannot be repaid using Take 3. The three included fans are connected to each of these controllers, leaving you room for three more.There are already three high-quality Corsair Velcro straps installed in the cable bar holding the I/O and fan cables in place, but apparently that wasn’t enough, so they included 12 more straps, which is always nice to have. Fan support: Top: 3x 120mm, 2x 140mm, Front: 3x 120mm, 2x 140mm (1x 120mm Included), Rear: 1x 120mm (1x 120mm Included). Actually installing components is a breeze, and once it’s put back together, it’s truly a sight to behold.
