The Corsair SPEC-01 is a standard mid-tower ATX chassis.

Carbide Series SPEC-01 is proof that great looks, smart design, and durable construction don’t need to be pricy, and that basic doesn’t need to be boring. You get aggressive styling, a huge side panel window for admiring your components, and an LED-lit front intake fan that draws cool air directly to your graphics cards.

Inside, there’s room for up to five fans, and the four combination hard drive / SSD trays make storage installation and upgrades quick and easy. Cable routing cutouts help you reduce clutter, and the built-in dust filters help protect your components. Up front, the USB 3.0 connector gets you up to speed with the latest high-performance storage devices.

The Corsair SPEC-01 mounts the PCU on the bottom. This keeps the center of mass lower while allowing more air flow over the important CPU, RAM and regulator area. This case is very aggressive and cool looking and has all the necessities to get you off the ground for very cheap.

Installing two 140mm fans on the front will bring cool air into the machine with a vengeance. The a rear and top fan can improve on the air exhaust.

You might not build a system with four hard drives or SSDs, but with SPEC-01, you can if you want. In addition to the two standard 5.25 inches optical drive bays, there are four built-in 3.5 inches / 2.5 inches combo drive bays for mechanical hard drives or solid-state drives.

There is lots of room for even 12″ class video cards like the R9 Fury.
