Once we got the case opened up, we noticed good things with the big three precut holes that have grommets covering them. There is also one precut hole in the top left for even more cable routing potential. So far this looks very promising, but nothing we would not expect from Corsair!
Once we got everything installed, you can see how much room you will have on the right side of the motherboard. This is good to see for the people who are wanting to water cool their system and need some room to run tubing. For our wires and normal looking setup, the Vengeance C70 does a great job of keeping the unused wires out of the way and helping us route our used wires better. Corsair definitely has wire management down as we have never seen a Corsair case that has bad wire management.
Installing the motherboard, as always, is with our trusty screw driver to secure it down to the motherboard tray.
The PCI slots have thumbscrews to secure your PCI cards. These are great to deal with as you do not need any tools to install or uninstall your PCI cards. This will save you some time and annoyance with having to find the right tool.
Installing the 2.5″ and 3.5″ drives is very simple and easy. The 2.5″ drive will just need to be lined up with the 4 holes on the bottom of the slider that you can see, and then use the provided screws to secure it down. For your 3.5″ drives, you can just slide the prongs on the side of the slider into the screw holes of your drive to secure it.
Now you can see where one of the water cooling areas we spoke of earlier would go if you decide to go that route. You can also take one of the HDD cages out and leave one in if you want to go that route as well, it is up to you.
The front of the Vengeance C70 has a real nice dust filter installed that can easily taken off to clean when the need arises. It will definitely help keep out a lot of unwanted dust and dirt from getting in your case.
The bottom of the Vengeance C70 has two separate dust filters to help keep your PSU intake clean and if you decide to install a fan on the bottom of the case, they will help keep the dust out from coming in there as well.
