This case is GREAT for the price. There was plenty of room for cable management. My buddy loves it.
Cable management can definitely be improved a bit more, otherwise it's a decent little case!
The HDD cage could definitely be moved a bit more to the right to allow for better clearance with power supplies. This case says it cannot support PSU's exceeding 160mm, however I have a 170mm PSU in this case and it fits fine. It's important to note however that a non-modular PSU with fat cables at that size will probably make your life very hard. I do not recommend doing that. Flat cables are a much better choice in general for this case. If you don't plan to use the HDD cage, you won't have any issues.
I had a minor annoyance with the 5.25 bay clip, as it would not auto lock my fan controller. I ended up having to remove the clip and screw the controller in instead.
The case itself is very lightweight; typical of the SPEC line. I've built in the SPEC-03 before, so it was pretty familiar territory and I knew what I was getting myself into.
Corsair, why you no CPU power hole?
Best Micro ATX case ever used
I got the as an open box item from Amazon Warehouse in like new condition. I like the case, but it has some design flaws. Even with a fully modular PSU, the managing of the cables was daunting to say the least.
This case is very hit-and-miss. For the $60 it's currently retailing at, you can do a whole lot better.
- The 5.25 cage is not tool-less. Don't be an idiot like me or your disk-drive will slide out of the front.
I bought this on a whim since I needed a PC small enough to accommodate my small desk and this was it. I love the window view on the side that lets me see my build at work, however, the only thing I disliked were the back tabs to place an expansion card to feel very cheap. Cable management is great if you plan to get a fully or semi modular PSU.
- Looks nice
- Big side window
- USB Headers
- Bad cable management (get a modular PSU)
- Not a lot of room behind MOBO
- No ATX MOBO support
Great case just wish it had more cable management. Otherwise airflow and the option for a Liquid Cooler is great.
Looking back, I probably shouldn't have purchased this case at that price. It really doesn't have that many amenities, and it looks gaudy and bulky.
Very good for the price.
-Nice side panel window.
-Room for big GPUs.
-Cable management is nearly impossible if you don't have a fully modular PSU.
-The top of the HDD bay is visible in the window.
-Only fits >150mm CPU coolers.
