5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with white LED Fans ATX Power Supply (not included)

Pros: Good room behind motherboard to route cables.

Able to run 6 fans

2x USB 3.0

Can fit 30mm or thinner 240 radiators inside case. Front mounted if you remove the trays and top mounted if you use low profile ram.

Slots to route water cooling out side of case for external radiators.

Can access back side of CPU slot so you do not have to remove motherboard to change cooler

Great price

Cons: internal HDD racks are a bit flimsy, but I only use 1x 5.25 slot for my fan controller and removed the 3.5in rack.

Other Thoughts: This case exceeded my expectations. I read many posts about this case not being able to be water cooled with anything other than a 120mm radiator, but 240 will fit. Is is smaller than a full sized case and sturdy build. I mounted 2x SSD drives in the bottom of the case just behind the front intake fans. I also moved the front fans from inside the case and they fit between the front cover and the case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with white LED Fans ATX Power Supply (not included)

Pros: Great case! Comes with 3 120mm fans and the LEDs are very bright. Amazing amount of room for upgrades. I no a front bay is going outta style but I like have the drive. Great air flow.

Cons: Fan filters aren't the best but you gotta skimp somewhere at that price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quality for the price

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with white LED Fans ATX Power Supply (not included)

Pros: Great build quality yet still feels lighter than other cases i've purchased in the past, perfect dimensions for most all builds, smooth for most part, black finish is nice, came with 2 white led intake fans and 1 black exhaust fan

Cons: some edges are a tad sharp on the very end corners inside the case but nothing too serious

Other Thoughts: the mb i chose to use with it, asrock b85 anniversary, had the 8-pin power near the top of the board, so i had to remove the top-exhaust fan to make room for it, could also move top-exhaust to the next slot over but then it would be in the top-middle, so i just went back to original fan setup, have bought Corsair cases in the past and really enjoy the quality even on this cheaper model

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair Spec-03

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with white LED Fans ATX Power Supply (not included)

Pros: Cheap. Includes two front LED fans instead of one. $39.99 after rebate when I bought it.

Cons: Zero for the price paid

Other Thoughts: Is the metal thin? Yes. Do I care? not for $40. I've had $200+ dollar cases that weighed a metric ton before I even put the first piece of equipment in it. I've since sold the heavy and gigantic cases. My main "tower" is now an S340, this one will be for a cheap gaming tower. The PC this case will house will likely be moved around quite frequently so it's weight will be a plus, not a minus. It's a metal box meant to house pc components and provide ample cooling while said system is in use, not additional seating for friends at a dinner party, don't sit on it and it'll be fine.

No Sharp edges
Tons of screws, cable ties, and great cable management support
Easy to work on and cable manage with the ample room behind the side panel

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the money!

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with white LED Fans ATX Power Supply (not included)

Pros: I just upgraded to this case because the case I did have couldn't support the mobo I wanted so I got this and I do have to say it's great for the price! It comes with 3 fans that are really quiet and they look really nice in white! Another thing I like is the glass on the side and it's not flimsy at all! Good quality for $60 definitely buy this case if you are trying to have a budget gaming PC like me!

Cons: The only thing I do have to say though is this case can't fit the corsair h100i gtx.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with white LED Fans ATX Power Supply (not included)

Pros: 2 Front USB 3
2 bays for 2.5" drives (so no SSD bracket needed)
Came with 3 case fans total, 2 on front.
Price (On sale and MIR)

Cons: Reset button not recessed/hidden at all, might make for accidental presses.

Other Thoughts: Ok so it's just the reset button, nothing to lose an egg over. Just keep it in mind if you tend to plug in your USB3 stuff without looking, don't let you finger hit it...

5 out of 5 eggsAlot of features for a low cost

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with white LED Fans ATX Power Supply (not included)

Pros: Lots of fan mounts, passable amount of cable management room, and a bottom mounted power supply. I was able to use my Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler even though the specs say it is too big for this case, which was my main reason for the purchase.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: A very nice case for the price.

1 out of 5 eggsH100i/H100 GTX DOES NOT FIT

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with white LED Fans ATX Power Supply (not included)

Pros: Looks like it is a nice case if you don't need to use a large liquid cooler. H80i will fit but nothing larger.

Cons: Ended up getting it and finding out it does not support the H100 GTX.. Tried looking it up prior to purchase however could not get a solid answer.. People have appearently made it work with low profile RAM but the case would not fit with the Vengance Pro line. Later found out that it would only support the H60 and H80i via Corsair however Newegg didn't have any information on it. But on the bright side I get to eat 50% of the cost to return my unused case!
