With the generously dimensioned 7000 series, Corsair brings two full-tower cases with high-end requirements to the market. In this article, I want to put the feature-oriented Airflow version through its paces and find out if the 20kg Behemoth lives up to its claims. An all-in-one compact water cooling system can be installed by anyone, there is enough space in any case. But what about a real custom loop? That’s exactly what I’m going to try in the test as well.
Corsair addresses the 7000D Airflow to the most ambitious users and focuses, as the name suggests, on a particularly high airflow. Unlike the iCUE 7000X RGB, which is supposed to appeal more to the show and shine crowd with its closed glass front and illuminated fans, the 7000D Airflow has a flow-optimized, perforated steel front. Three pre-installed 140mm AirGuide fans (2xIN, 1xOUT) already provide a decent ventilation ex works.
What the two cases share is the RapidRoute named cable management and a gigantic amount of space, which can accommodate up to twelve 120mm fans, or even three 360mm radiators if needed. Thanks to the flexible radiator supports, even 420-480mm radiators can be mounted in some cases. Both side doors and the cable management cover are hinged for quick and convenient access to the interior.
Vertical mounting of a graphics card with up to 3 slots in height is also possible, but the necessary PCI-Express riser cable must be purchased separately. The front panel is particularly well-equipped with one USB 3.1 Type-C and no less than 4 USB 3.0 ports, and data collectors will find plenty of room for up to 10 hard drives (4 x 2.5″ + 6 x 2.5 or 3.5″).
Technical data / dimensions
This monster is not for the faint of arm or thin of shelf, it’s more of a slog than a spill. In numbers, it reads like this:
For the very curious I have of course also the manual:WW_7000D_7000D_Airflow_QSG_AA
