It stands out from the group with a extra open design. Nonetheless, many examine it to the Lian Li O11 Dynamic, which additionally includes a glass back and front. However the Y60 varies itself with an edge piece of glass within the nook moderately than a pillar. Which provides it a extra uninterrupted panoramic view of the within.

The case is obtainable in three totally different colours. With choices for white, crimson, and black. Altering the colours of the skin trim and the PCIe riser. Which does include the case itself to showcase your wares inside. We’ve got the white case to evaluate and can undergo the main points of it.

The Exterior

Throughout the case is effectively designed and aesthetically pleasing. From the edges, the case is greater than 50% tempered glass. What gives the good panoramic view of what the within holds. The white model has simply trims across the high and backside, together with the again panel however lacks the colour wherever else.

By default, the case doesn’t have any RGB options, so neither are the fans. We get three normal white ones the place two are actually hidden within the bay beneath. Which we didn’t understand have been there within the first place however does supply optimum temperature air to soak up. So though at first there is probably not numerous airflow, there’s actually extra to anticipate.

Normally, the design may be very modern and easy. Aside from the angled glass, it’s moderately boxy and noticed to appear to be an aquarium. However we don’t maintain it in opposition to it as it’s nonetheless good and retains the price down probably.

The Rear

The again of the Hyte Y60 does supply some distinction from different circumstances. Subsequent to the IO cutout, there’s the grill for a singular 120mm fan. An ordinary design alternative for an air outtake. Beneath that there are the growth slots and the place this case differs. With a centered design on displaying your graphics card, it focuses on the vertical mounts. It has three full vertical slots, however then seven horizontal half slots.

This does imply you possibly can solely mount your GPU vertically and half-height playing cards in the remaining. Though growth playing cards have turn into a bit extra unique there are use circumstances for WiFi cards and different PCIe playing cards. These must be advantageous however can get tedious, particularly working across the included riser.

Then on the left aspect of the again, you discover the expansions and ports for the again space. There are two very useful detachable storage bays. Which provides you handy entry to vary round your storage so long as you will have the wiring related. It is just for 2 3.5-inch drives or 4 2.5-inch drives, however that must be loads for many wants.

There’s additionally the power supply cutout and it mounts vertically as effectively. This does put the fan in a special place than normal however we take a look at that situation in a while. All that’s left on the again is to say the good and useful labeling for every half. This may be useful for first-time builders displaying them the place elements like storage, growth, and energy must go.

The Sides

With the empty case, we see the big obtainable area contained in the case. With the seamless glass view from one aspect, you see proper via to the opposite aspect. The insides we check out later as we first take a look at what the edges have to supply.

For the glass aspect, there’s a white trim on the high and backside. This covers the underside fan bay and high radiator so nothing is neglected of your view. The underside trim does comprise the entrance IO and buttons on the nook with the entrance. There you’ll discover:

  • 2x USB 3.0
  • 1x USB C 3.2
  • 1x Audio/mic jack 3.5mm
  • 1x Energy button

The entire aspect is easy to take off, with one thumb screw on the again, it then simply puls out. Permitting for simple entry to the whole lot you want with none points.

For the again aspect, there’s a close to stable aspect panel. Besides it has right-angle traces lower out of it for the airflow. That is how the case permits for the PSU fan to breathe in addition to the aspect fan mounts. It additionally is barely affixed by one thumb screw and may simply be slid out after unscrewing.

The High

The highest follows the design of the stable aspect panel. With cut-out traces for airflow, simply with the addition of the angle to fret about. It’s a lot simpler to take away with none screw holding it in and may be simply popped off.

The highest can also be meshed for airflow, as it’s able to becoming three followers or as much as a 360mm radiator. With loads of area and hidden away to maintain it trying clear. But in addition supplies your parts with loads of airflow.

Whereas on it does look quite simple and clear. However on this case, it isn’t the main target and that’s clearly the insides and meant to be seen from the edges. So though it could be plain it’s effectively constructed. With a stable construct, it doesn’t really feel like it is going to break and it’ll click on in properly. 

The Backside

A extra distinctive view into this case is what the underside has to supply. There’s additionally a detachable panel with two tabs that you simply pull up and the underside simply slides out. Additionally it is meshed for the airflow, as it’s the essential space for incoming airflow.

It’s able to holding two followers that come preinstalled and it’s the place the good air will come to. Which instantly feeds into the graphics card retaining it cool.

The toes on the underside are fairly tall too to maintain it open. In addition to solely being at the back and front it provides loads of area for air to enter. Nevertheless it doesn’t trigger the case to wobble and continues to be sturdy.

The Inside

Now we check out what the within of the Y60 has to supply. With a quantity of 60L, there’s numerous area to slot in. Particularly since it’s designed to showcase your elements there’s numerous constructing area. And there’s a lot of thought into cable administration.

The again fan and riser come preinstalled and stand out within the vacancy. Each colours coordinated to match the case. And we see the aspect mount for the followers, permitting for even larger airflow otherwise you do need to transfer followers up there. Particularly if you happen to’re into RGB it does offer you an area to point out it off. A variety of flexibility with only a couple extra choices.

The motherboard tray is totally supportive from mATX to EATX. With quick access and enormous cable administration areas. To the suitable of the mobo, you get two cutouts with rubber grommets. Permitting so that you can disguise that giant unseemly 24-pin connector and USB cables. Whereas the highest additionally has one massive cutout on your CPU energy, it can be good for wiring an AIO or followers you will have on high. With loads of room to put in even with the board already in.

On the backside, there are a few cutouts, small however loads for that USB, audio, and entrance connectors. They will simply rise out and conceal away, to not be seen behind the graphics card. Which is usually a bit tougher to cable however with some tightening you possibly can disguise the cables behind it. 

The highest and backside are effectively vented to permit for airflow into or out of the case. Because the decrease case followers carry the freshest air straight to the GPU and the recent air can simply escape via the highest too. With no impedance from all areas, filling the case with followers can actually create an important wind tunnel inside.

The one situation we got here throughout when constructing the case was mounting the GPU into the riser. As we have been utilizing an air cooler the cardboard couldn’t be fitted with it put in. And so first needed to be eliminated, so that could be a tip for constructing into it. Additionally, the case recommends solely utilizing GPUs as much as 60mm thick though it is going to match as much as 75mm it is going to probably suffocate. So it could be not fairly appropriate for the ever-growing dimension of GPUs and growing TDPs. Just like the Noctua 3080 is not going to be appropriate for the construct though then chances are you’ll need to take into account water cooling too.

The Again Panel

As soon as opening the again aspect panel you discover a sizeable compartment on your PSU and cables. The left could also be taken up by the followers there’s nonetheless loads of room for the remaining. On the suitable is the place you’ll discover the storage sleds, one fitted with the field of screws and goodies, and the shelf on your energy provide.

Because the PSU sits on little ledges and as soon as screwed within the fan on it’s up in opposition to the aspect panel. And its mesh and cutouts additionally give it loads of recent air to maintain cool with. Additionally it is easy to cable the factor with loads of room even for the most important arms like ours.

The connectors of the case come pre-wrapped again right here and are tucked away neatly already. Benefitting from the undercarriage to cover in, they will simply be put via the few cutouts and hidden away. That is additionally the case for the ability cables. With useful sports activities to place them via it may be very easy to cable manage. Particularly with the plethora of tie-down loops, you’ll find for cable ties.

Even with just some velcro straps, we managed to make it look adequate. So taking time might simply permit for good cable channels to be made and make it neat and tidy. There are solely two grommets on the aspect, and they’re effectively constructed and don’t simply come out, it might do with extra. The highest with its large cut-out might do with one even when it could be much less apparent to identify from the skin.


The final issue we take into account is the efficiency of the case. We take a look at the temperatures of the GPU, CPU, and chipset earlier than, throughout, and after stress checks. Utilizing HWinfo we get readouts of those temps and may visualize them. Whereas we see the case temperature with a thermal probe to know what temperature the air coming in is at.

Earlier than beginning Furmark and Cinebench we took the temperatures of the air. With two probes, one in entrance of the GPU and the opposite behind the CPU cooler. They began at 26.9°C and 29.2°C respectively.

Whereas the CPU began at 42°C, the GPU at 33.8°C, and the chipset at 56.6°C. Then working the stress checks we get an outline of the temperatures. The thermal probes reached a excessive of 43.5°C and 50.3°C for the air within the case. While the CPU reached a excessive of 90°C, the GPU 77.8°C, and the chipset at 60.6°C.

These temperatures are completely advantageous, however our CPU is getting hot. Though the cooler is rated sufficient for it, it is perhaps struggling. But in addition there is no such thing as a direct recent air to it. With solely the underside followers offering cooler air it first goes via the GPU. So it is probably not getting the most suitable choice.

However the Y60 has bought loads extra space for configurations. Utilizing water cooling would offer you numerous choices and funky air on your elements. Or simply much more fan areas can present much more airflow to maintain your temps decrease. So with your individual cooling, it may be extra environment friendly, or transferring the followers to the aspect might equal out the circulation.

Ultimate ideas

General, we actually do like this case. With a extra distinctive design centered on showcasing, there’s a lot to be carried out. We’ve seen customized options for screens that match into the nook. There’s loads of room for personalization and customization.

It additionally is simple to work with, with a lot empty area it may be simply in-built. Together with a well-thought-out and nice-looking design that so many already like. As with the recognition of Lian Lis circumstances, there’s precedent for extra show-off circumstances. So together with that and the well-built and good supplies used it is usually a robust case.

The one points we have now with it are the value and availability. It’s on the costlier aspect costing $200/£190. Though if you happen to take into account the riser price $70 individually then it isn’t an excessive amount of additional, particularly for the construct high quality. In addition to solely being obtainable in North America, solely present in Greatest Purchase or Hyte itself, there are fewer choices worldwide. However this has been altering, with Overclockers providing a preorder on it this will likely enhance additional down the road.
