About this deal

After everything is closed up and screwed down, the view from the front is astonishingly sleek and clean. Maximum Cooling Potential: 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. Weirdly, despite being a case built for RGB, this dark tint and lavish quantity of glass make the chassis quite elegant.

The 5000X RGB makes a stunning, showpiece-worthy PC easy to build and easier to keep cool with the space and flexibility to mount multiple 360mm radiators, all surrounded by beautiful tempered glass on four sides.

It’s safe to say that the case does its job quite well right out of the box, with a relatively cheap air cooler to boot, and the cooling can only get better from there with plenty of room to add fans or radiators. It’s not hard to imagine that the mesh coverings and large openings on the front and top greatly aid in these results. The process of removing the accessory cover looks about as irritating to wrestle with as the other internals.

The spec sheet also lists a third 360mm radiator spot at the side intake, but that will only work if you remove the shroud, and you’ll have to keep the radiator thin to avoid running into the GPU.If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. Easily route major cables through a single channel for clean builds with CORSAIR RapidRoute design and 25mm ofcrouting depth. The keyboard and mouse section (when selected), is positioned securely in a compartment underneath the computer. Smart RGB Lighting Out-of-the-Box: Fully control and synchronize the RGB lighting for up to six fans with the included iCUE Lighting Node CORE and CORSAIR iCUE software.

The CORSAIR iCUE 5000X RGB is a mid-tower ATX case that shows off your PC, and not its cables, behind four stunning tempered glass panels. Complete with room for four storage drives and a modern front I/O panel including a USB-C port, the 5000X RGB makes for a clean build that keeps its cool. 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. The iCUE 5000x does a very good job keeping things cool right out of the box, which is thanks to mesh coverings that allow lots of space for airflow around the top and bottom panels. Equipped with three CORSAIR SP RGB ELITE 120mm fans featuring AirGuide technology with anti-vortex vanes to concentrate airflow and enhance cooling.If you have a non-BNPL balance, you will still need to make at least your minimum payment as shown on your statement. The cable shroud is a little difficult to hold down and screw in from the back side, and it seems to press down a little too hard on the 24-pin power cable for the motherboard. For these tests, the only cooling solution that’s used (which isn’t provided by Corsair) is the Hyper 212 EVO Black Edition, so keep in mind that you will most definitely get better temps with a liquid cooling solution and/or more fans. Of course, you’ll need a lot of RGB if you wish to show off the inside of your PC, but it won’t blind you if you overdo it.
