With the newly introduced iCUE 465X RGB housing, Corsair is supplementing its own range in the range between 100 and 150 euros. The model is available in black and white and currently costs € 122.82. Corsair promises a housing with a modern interior, lots of glass and three LL120 fans with ARGB lighting.
These are available as a package in retail stores and cost alone already € 90.72. Whether this costly accessory has an impact on the other qualities of the iCUE 465X RGB, and how Corsair’s newcomer performs in practice, can be seen in the following test.

Scope of Delivery
The scope of delivery of the case is slightly above average. In addition to the usual screws for installing the drives, the mainboard and the power supply, there are six black cable ties with a length of 15 cm and two optional mainboard spacers in the package. As a little extra, there are also twelve black, thread-cutting fan screws and eight fan screws for mounting on a radiator.
