Inside the Corsair Vengeance C70
Each side panel is attached to the chassis using two latches similar to the ones used on ammunition boxes. See Figure 11.
The motherboard tray has a huge hole for you to access the backplate of the CPU cooler without having to remove the motherboard from the case, a few holes protected with rubber covers for you to route cables behind it, several metallic clips for you to fasten cables using cable ties, and a cable organizer behind the motherboard tray.
Figure 14 gives you another overall look inside the case. As explained, you can install a 240 mm radiator of liquid cooling solutions on the top panel. Expansion cards are fastened using black thumbscrews. The Corsair Vengeance C70 supports video cards up to 12.6” (320 mm) long on its default configuration or up to 18.1” (460 mm) if the top hard drive cage is removed.
The reviewed case comes with one 120 mm fan identical to the one used on the rear panel attached to each hard drive cage. See Figure 15.
As already explained, the power supply is installed at the bottom of the case. Note that it can be installed with either its bottom fan facing up or facing down, so you can decide if you want the fan of your power supply pulling air from inside the case or from outside of it. As already shown, there is an air filter for the power supply fan.
The Corsair Vengeance C70 supports the installation of two 120 mm fans on the bottom panel, but you will need to remove the plastic support that holds the bottom hard drive cage. With the first 120 mm fan installed, you can install power supplies up to 7.5” (190 mm) deep. There is an air filter for these optional fans. Also, if you remove the bottom hard drive cage, you can install a 240 mm radiator of liquid cooling solutions on the bottom panel.
