Product information
This Corsair Carbide SPEC-01 Mid Tower PC Case brings daring, modern looks to your computing setup, with loads of great design features to keep setup and customisation flexible.

Aggressive appearance

Strong lines and a huge side panel window that shows off interior components make the Carbide SPEC-01 a mean-looking PC case.

The front intake fan features red LED lighting to add to the effect, helping you get into that competitive headspace to play your best.

Plenty of room to customise

Set up your PC to perform the way you want it to – the Corsair SPEC-01 PC Case offers room for up to five fans, plus four combination hard drive/SSD trays for quick, easy storage installation and upgrades. As well as the two standard 5.25” optical drive bays, it's got four built-in 3.5” / 2.5” combo drive bays for mechanical hard drives or SSDs.

Enjoy the neat practicality of cable routing cutouts, which help to minimise clutter. Your components will be kept safe by the integrated dust filters, and there's a USB 3.0 connector in the front panel to help make data transfers as fast and efficient as possible.

Make it cooler

The SPEC-01 has been made for cooling, so if you're an avid overclocker, like to run multiple GPUs or simply need more airflow, you'll have the space to add extra fans. The included 120 mm front fan draws cool air directly onto your graphics cards.

Make the most of mounting points for dual front 140 mm or 120 mm fans, dual 120 mm fans on top and a 120 mm rear fan – the best way to keep your PC running at its most stable. There's a CPU cutout to permit cooling upgrades without having to take the motherboard out.

Use the Corsair Carbide SPEC-01 Mid Tower PC Case to enhance your computer gaming.

Droitwich GB Budget Gaming Enthusiast! (And
The Corsair Carbide SPEC-01 is a budget case for the budget gaming market. What makes it a case for gaming against anything else is the aggressive styling, the sleek window on the left side and the capabilities for up to 3 way SLI on the back. As a mid tower ATX case, it does an especially good job at being quiet under light - medium load on the system with one fan that is near silent that comes with the case, and the Cooler Master Hyper 103, which I bought as an aftermarket cooler (I recommend it, I have a review for that too), and a Cooler Master Sickleflow, which I bought from my nearby electronics store. It allows for a large amount of cable management, there is no shroud covering the cables from the PSU but it is not needed as the backplate, while certainly isn't generous, gives us the necessary space to manage a fully built up system. Airflow is extremely good for what it is, so I recommend installing the PSU with the fan facing up, as with capabilities for two 140mm fans at the front, it will add to the positive air pressure and draft it out, leaving you without another problem if you decide to have more than just the fans that come with the case and cooling. I would not recommend an ATX motherboard if you are looking to do some serious cable management as the amount of room to put your cables in the backplate will not be used, as much as a m-ATX or a m-ITX, and the indents in the backplate do not make it look boring if you decide not to go for a full sized motherboard!It is certainly not perfect, but if you are looking for an aggressive look to compliment a gaming setup, this and some of Corsair / CiT's other models are where you should be looking!

I rate this fully a 10/10 altogether.
-No shroud to cover the PSU cables.
-No grommets for the larger cables, such as the 24 pin DIMM connector.
