Pros

Eye-catching glass panels; three gorgeous LL120 fans included; very good thermal and acoustic performance

Cons

Other than the light and glass, offers the experience of using a much cheaper case

Star Rating

Introduction

Since 2013, we've reviewed over 30 cases, and among our favorite cases ever was the Corsair Carbide 500R, which we reviewed in 2014. Corsair has evolved a lot since then, but so has the entire PC case market, and in late 2019, it released its latest entry in the "light and glass" style, the iCUE 465X Smart Case. Corsair is now using its iCUE software as branding for its cases, indicating that it's leveraging this comprehensive PC control software suite as a way to differentiate its cases from what other manufacturers can offer. In short, they're marketing a "whole system" experience, with RAM, coolers, cases, peripherals, and even some high-end power supplies all being controlled by iCUE! Ultimately, though, cases still need to stand on their own merits, and that's how we'll be judging the 465X in this review.

Special thanks to Corsair for providing us a sample of the iCUE 465X ATX Mid-Tower Smart Case in White.
