Corsair Spec 01 Review

Gaming PC cabinets are always the most underrated things, gamers usually spend all on the GPU and CPU and rest of the things are just bought to fit the bill. Here is a cabinet you can buy which offers great style, design and build quality without over exceeding your spending capacity.

We earlier listed 7 Great PC cabinets for gaming pc build to provide insights on cabinets which you can buy starting from Rs. 1200 to 15,000.  Corsair Spec 01 Mid Tower Gaming Case is priced at Rs. 4,200 ($70).

Review Corsair  Spec 01 Gaming PC Cabinet

Recently we got the Corsair Spec 01 cabinet from Corsair India for review, we also reviewed the Corsair Spec 02 some days back which is a higher model, and price close to Rs. 5,000 or $80.

The Corsair Spec 01 is a great cabinet to include in your next gaming PC build and suitable for PC Builds starting at Rs. 35,000 to all the way upto 60,000.  Beyond that range, I think you can get something more exotic.

The Spec 01 cabinet has a rugged build quality and neat black matte finish similar to the Spec 02. It does not feel very large or heavy and looks elegant and designed for performance PC.

The cabinet has good airflow dynamics and support upto 5 fans, you can use 2 fans (120 mm) or even 140 MM Fans on the front side of the case. There is 1 fan at the rear end.

We can add 2 fans at the top of the case with 120 MM FAN size, I think 3-4 fans are more than enough for cooling unless you plan to game in the Saharan deserts then can add all 5 of them.

Review Corsair Spec 01 Gaming PC Cabinet Price Rs 4000

Two fans are pre-installed in the cabinet one at the front with Red Led and one at the back without any LED lights. The cooling is sufficient to keep the temperature in check for the Graphics card, hard disk, and Processor.

The front grill has dust filters to remove the dust from Air pulled by the cooling fans.

You can easily use this cabinet with graphics cards like Nvidia GTX 960, GTX 760, GTX 770 and GTX 970 or if you have an AMD 270X, AMD R9 280, 280X or AMD 290X you can use the cabinet easily. For crossfire or SLI also cabinet can work but will be prudent to buy even larger cabinet in that case.

Corsair Spec 01 can easily be used with most of the processors and micro-ATX motherboards, and ATCX motherboards.

You can use it all processors from AMD or Intel, easily with the stock cooler and some of the smaller aftermarket coolers can also be fitted easily in the case, but if you are looking to buy an aftermarket cooler like the Hyper 212X which requires a lot of headroom and side space to install, you can look at a bigger cabinet like HAF 912 etc.

Design

The large Window made up of fine heat resistant material at one side of the case looks very elegant and you can admire your exotic gaming pc components from the window.

Review Corsair Spec 02 Mid Tower Gaming Case

If you are planning to build a new Gaming PC this year or thinking of upgrading the old Gaming PC it is time to look at some good gaming PC Cabinets. We listed 7 good PC cabinets last week to provide insights on cabinets which you can buy starting from Rs. 1200 to 15,000.  Corsair Spec 02 Mid Tower Gaming Case is priced at Rs. 5,000($80). 

Corsair Gaming PC Cabinet Review

Recently we got the Corsair Spec 02 from Corsair India for review, thanks to Corsair for sharing PC components with Candytech and from our readers.

Top Features

The Corsair Spec 02 Mid Tower Gaming Cabinet is ideal if you are building a Gaming PC with a budget of Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 70,000 you can look at adding the Corsair Spec 02 Case. The Case has a strong build quality and neat black matte finish. It does not feel very large or heavy and looks quite premium.

The cabinet has very good airflow dynamics and supports upto 6 fans, you can use 2 fans (120 mm) at the front and 1 at the rear, 2 fans at the top side and 1 at the bottom. I would not use all those fans in my rig. Two fans are pre-installed in the cabinet one at the front with Red Led and one at the back without LED. I would suggest you can add 1 more fan at the front and max 1 more 120 mm Fan at the top side that is more than enough for providing good cooling to the graphics card, HDD, processor, and motherboard.

The front grill has dust filters to remove the dust from Air pulled by the cooling fans. You can easily use this cabinet with graphics cards like Nvidia GTX 960, GTX 760, GTX 770 and GTX 970 or if you have an AMD 270X, AMD R9 280, 280X or AMD 290X you can use the cabinet easily. For crossfire or SLI also cabinet can work but will be prudent to buy even larger cabinet in that case.

Corsair Spec 02 can easily be used with most of the processors and micro-ATX motherboards, you can use AMD FX 8000 series or Intel 4th gen core i5 and Core i7 processors with the cabinet. Aftermarket cooler can be installed in the cabinet though you may have some trouble with very large aftermarket coolers like Cooler Master Hyper 212X. Liquid Processor coolers can be installed in the cabinet with ease.

The Window at one side of the case looks very elegant and you can view your gaming pc components from the window.
