A Closer Look: Interior

The all-black exterior of the 465X has been continued to the inside with only a hint of gold on the lighting controller at the back of the case. The 465X’s motherboard tray supports Mini-ATX, Micro-ATX, or ATX motherboard and is surrounded by various grommets and cutouts to help keep your cables tidy. To further keep your build looking clean, the chassis also sports a full-length PSU shroud to keep your PSU well hidden.

Toward the front of the case, we see the three preinstalled LL120 RGB fans and two 2.5” SSD mounting points to the right of the grommets.

To the back of the chassis is a mounting point for a 120mm single exhaust fan. It would have been nice to see Corsair include one with the case even if it wasn’t an LL120, as most users will likely purchase an additional fan.

Taking a look at the PSU shroud, is has a large cutout at the front allowing up to a 360mm radiator installed to the front of 465X. It also provides some cable management options with a grommet in the center and a small cutout in the upper-left corner.

Moving to the back of the 465X, we find the preinstalled iCUE Light Node CORE controller with the 3 RGB fans already plugged in. For cable management, there is a plethora of tie-downs near the grommets and some more leading up to the CPU cable cutout in the upper-right corner.

If you wish to add more fans to the iCUE 465X RGB, the Lighting Node CORE has room for 3 more RGB fans on the left-hand side. You may notice that the Lighting Node CORE only has room for the RGB cable of the fan which means you either need to install the fans into a hub or plug them directly into your motherboard.

Below the motherboard tray cutout are two 2.5” SSD mounting plates that are secure using a single thumbscrew.

Looking to the bottom under the PSU shroud is a removable drive cage that has room for two 3.5” or two 2.5” drives.
