CORSAIR IS GOING BIG, with a new full-tower PC case and a new cooler to go with it; that’s the iCUE H170i Elite Capellix RGB seen in this issue’s “Build It,” an AIO unit with a whopping 420mm radiator. The 7000D Airflow is the case built to house such a chunky cooling solution, and it certainly lives up to its name.
Let’s start by talking about fans and radiators. The 7000D comes with three non-RGB 140mm fans, but there’s space for plenty more—the front can handle up to four 120mm fans (or three 140mm), and the same goes for the upright cooling bracket that sits behind the cable cover plate on one side. At the top of the case, there’s a removable rail bracket that can support 420mm of radiator space, and there’s naturally a vent for a single preinstalled 140mm fan at the rear.
Using all these concurrently isn’t quite an option, as large radiators mounted to the front and top can encroach on each other, but there’s undeniably space for plenty of workstation-level cooling here. The front and top panels are highly perforated steel to allow for superior airflow, with magnetic dust filters and hinged side panels, one of which is a full glass window. Taking the 7000D apart to build in is a relatively painless process.
