I have a few workarounds in mind to make the setup tidier if you want to use fans other than SP RGB and will report back after I've tracked down a 570X Mirror Black to experiment on. :)
Hey CJ, just wanted to follow up and see if you'd been able to make any headway here. Even just ideas that would require minimal splicing would be super helpful. Thanks!

The amount of visual information on this case is very limited. The pictures simply do not do it justice.The only video i could find that showed the case in detail was this one. I hope this helps somebody.

  • RGB-lit front sails logo and PSU shroud logo.
  • True USB 3.1 Type-C Gen2 support.
  • Cutouts for mounting a video card vertically.

The mirrored panels are also super nice. :)
Will we be seeing a 570X case in white with all these specs in the future?

That I don't know. It'd be nice though to see those set of features in the white version because I have the white version myself

Does the H150i fit in the top of the Mirror Black version?

+1 for the white version with the new features!!! Pleeeeease??

I've been holding out on getting the regular white 570x version as also getting the PSU shroud and upgrade kits delivered to the UK is too much hassle... (and never in stock) plus I want I want to vertically mount my GPU

Default 570X Mirror

Can anybody 100% confirm if the 570X Mirror Black comes with a PSU shroud cover & pass through holes in the top of the PSU shroud for cable routing? I bought the original 570X RGB & was pretty disappointed to see the shroud is completely open on the end & there were 0 cable routing holes for front I/O, HD Audio, etc. Thanks in advance

From what I have seen, there is now an airflow grill and grommets leading out of the top of the PSU shroud. I almost cut this case out of consideration when I was viewing an original 570x review. The guy literally ran the front IO wires down the back of his board.

But from the unboxing review that was posted in this thread, it seems to have those two new features. Thank goodness. It's gone back on my radar now. I don't think he pulled a shroud cover out of the box in the review. You'd probably have to buy it from the accessories page in the Corsair store. It's only like 5 bucks, though. Not bad.

I'm just gonna get the case and if it doesn't come with the cover, buy it afterward. That is, if the CM H500M doesn't win me over. Waiting on a full review to check the dust filters, though. My CM HAF XB dust filters suck.

Yes, they do come with the PSU shroud and cable cut-out. Not only that, it also has GPU vertical mount capability, PSU shroud RGB LED, and USB Type-C I/O

As others have noted, yes there is a cut-out with a grommet on the top of the shroud. This cut out is not only for PSU cables you want to pass through but it is the only realistic way for the bottom motherboard connections (USB headers, HD audio, front panel connections) to pass through. There is no space between the shroud and the motherboard to pass the connections to the back.

Since the case screams RGB everything, you have to plan your cabling very carefully. The back of the Mirror Black has extremely limited space for any routing and the gap to the glass is less than ideal. The case really needs to be 0.5 - 1 inch wider and taller.

I have the following installed and cabling was the biggest challenge I've ever had for a case.

H150i Pro (mounted front in push-pull) 3 LL120 push intake and the 3 120s that came with the cooler in back for pull.

2 LL140's at the top exhaust and 1 LL120 rear for exhaust.

All 6 RGB fans via second LED hub are connected to a Commander Pro LED 1. LED 2 has a 4 RGB strip. Included LED hub is for Front and PSU Shroud Corsair RGB logos. The included fans are dumped as the LL fans are so much better looking in the front glass.

I have 2 4TB HDDs for storage and no 2.5 SSDs (1 M.2 SSD on the motherboard for OS, etc.). The 2.5 SSD cages are removed and stuck in their place is the second LED hub and Commander Pro. There is no other place to put them.

Now I know why the PSU shroud orignally had no front cover. Space for PSU cables is an absolute joke with the cover there. If you use any type of custom PSU cables here, you have very significant space problems.

I use CableMod PSU cables for my AX1200i and they are long and not extremely flexible. Using only the 24pin ATX, CPU and 2 PCIe cables is alot to squeeze together in the back. There are also 2 sata cables for 6 sata connections (2 HDD, H150i, 2 LED hubs and the Commander Pro). One Molex cable for the internal USB hub since I need 4 USB 2.0 headers and the ASUS Maximus IX Code has only 1.

The USB hub is required for the following: Commander Pro, H150i, AX1200i and a Lighting Node Pro for 2 RGB strips that I have next the front case fans.

Needless to say, thats a lot to squeeze in the back. I still have to find a way to use the cable channel but there is too much to fit there.

The finished build is fantastic and the mirror glass is great but my god what a chore to cable route all that.
