Corsair Carbide SPEC 01 & 03 Review

What! A Corsair case for £37. Surely this is too good to be true.

Well done Corsair,nice to finally get a new standard set for budget cases. Now everyone else, please follow. To be totally honest though, there really isn't much competition. The NZXT source 210 is only the real competitor for it and thats much more basic looking.

-edit- Also the Silverstone RL04B is another competitor. Slightly better cable management but no window

This is perfect for one thing I have been tagged for in my family. Everyone comes to me to say "can you build me a pc, not much money;" Its really awesome case and I can see using it with mATX sized MB a lot for the family builds.

Nice review and video .

It is good to see such a great case at such a low price point.
I'm not saying that 1984 is a bad book, but the dystopia we are currently living in has much better worldbuilding.

Given the dimension of the 212 Evo 120 x 80 x 159 mm (4.7 x 3.1 x 6.3 in) I'm going to say NO. The review says any cooler 153mm will fit just fine though.

EDIT: What happened to the Spec-2?? I've not seen anything about it since the leaked images months ago...

No idea they have the 01, and 03 on pre order most everywhere, but not the 02, very odd

Chris Sparrow, thanks for youre advice as i had just ordered the coolermaster 212 to use in the spec 01 case so i quickly stopped the order and changed it to the 412 . It is a shame as i prefered the look of the 212 with its gold pins on top ,, thanks again
