Flash Voyager GTX

Graphite Series 380T Mini-ITX Enclosure
Benchmark Reviews had a look at the Graphite 380T chassis.
"The Graphite series from Corsair continues on with its performance legacy by introducing the 380T, a mini-ITX case that can certainly handle a great amount of hardware while still maintaining portability as an option."... "If you want to build a super portable, high end system that resembles nothing you have ever seen before look no further than the Corsair Graphite 380T."
It scored a 9 out of 10.
[H]ard|OCP also checked out the 380T.
"The clever design, generous amount of room and removable side panels of the Corsair Graphite Series 380T make working in and around this chassis a pleasure. The support for AIO liquid cooled systems, full size graphics cards and 150mm air coolers gives gamers and mini-ITX enthusiast a foundation to build an awesome LAN rig or Steam Machine."
The Graphite 380T walked away with a "Silver Award."
Carbide Series SPEC-02 Enclosure
Overclocking Made in France reviewed the Corsair Carbide SPEC-02 where it scored 4 out of 5.
Force LX Series Solid State Drives
PC Persepctive reviewed the Force LX 256GB and 512GB SSD drives.
"The Corsair Force LX is a solid performer thanks to its Micron 20nm synchronous flash and Silicon Motion controller. We were happy to see this performance available in costs/GB lower than competing units. While more limited on write speeds, the smaller 256GB capacity showed some advantages over the larger models in pure random read workloads at specific queue depths. The Corsair Force LX is a worthy addition to the list of SSDs folks look for, especially those shopping based on good performers at a relatively low cost per gigabyte."
The drive earned PC Perspective's "Silver Award.”
