Corsair Carbide SPEC-03

★★★★ 4.1
Verdict: Corsair are one of those companies who needs no introduction but for those who don't actually know of them, they are one of the most popular manufacturers of cases, PC cooling, peripherals and memory in the world.

An excellent case for mATX builds, with plenty of space for cable management.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: I have bought three of these cases in various colours for desktop builds because they are just such decent cases. The side panels allow for a view in to the machine, and for cable management. There are plenty of spaces for fans, and the tool-less SSD, HDD, and DVD drive bays are very welcome.

Great case for the price!

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Decent amount of room for cable management in the back of the case but that being said its probably only ideal for a few items coming from the power supply. If you're running multiple video cards that each require multiple power connectors it might start getting a little tight back there.
  • Corsair level of quality at a good price - Comes with 3 fans which is plenty for the average gamer's cooling needs - Liked the drive layout and tool-less design - Window on the side panel is a nice touch
  • Not really a con but this case is one of Corsair's cheaper options so expect more plastic than on the higher end products

Can't beat it for price vs value

★★★★★ 2.0
Verdict: For the money this is probably one of the best cases you can get. Using it for my gaming rig Lots of room for additional fans, fit my massive GTX in without any problems, easy to install and came with a generous amount of screws and runs pretty cool out of the box.

★★★★★ 3.0
Verdict: This case is great for budget builds. If that's what you want to know don't read any further, it looks good, and as long as your OCD keeps those cables clean it'll look amazing. Keep in mind the red LED fans though. Got this case for my first computer build and I love the look.
  • - Futuristic look
  • - Included fans (Red LED's
  • - Thumb screws
  • - Simple instillations
  • - Color
  • - Would make for a pretty sweet custom build if you were up to it
  • - Cable management a little above average to keep looking clean
  • - No PSU cover (not big deal on budget case
  • - Dust covers don't keep out all dust but do an ok job

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-Alpha - Mid-Tower Gaming Case - Black/Silver

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Best looking budget case out on the market. Also there are small holes on the back for easy cable management. But the fan speed controller was hard to figure out since the manual wasn't detailed enough.

Nice Compact Case

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Very powerful case came with two USB 3.0 and fan control. Sharp looking and fits all ATX mATX and mITX motherboard. Also fits for 120mm and 240mm radiator if you are looking for liquid your system. Note that 240mm radiator only supported in front panel.

Cheap, flimsy, low quality

★★★★★ 3.0
Verdict: It looks okay, but it's kind of cheap and flimsy. The screw holes in the side panels don't even line up right with the screw holes in the case, so every time you put the side panels back on you have to jiggle and kind of force them.
