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).
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.
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 air flow dynamics and support 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 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. After market cooler can be installed in the cabinet though you may have some trouble with very large after market 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.

The Corsair logo looks elegant at the front side of the grill in front of the 120 mm Cooling fan. The case is pitch black in color and has premium finish.
The front is neat with long grill which can house 2 fans of 120 mm or 140 mm size, there is a pre- installed 120 mm fan with Red LED light which looks great and adds aggressive looks to the case.
You can remove the top plates from the front and fit 2 DVD Roms in the PC Cabinet easily.
The Side Window Looks cool with a Glimpse to all the internal hardware it is an excellent view with Red LED light on.
The Front header has the Power and rest buttons which are easy to press and very well built, in lots of cabinets the buttons are poorly made but not in the Corsair Spec 02.
The front panel has the support for USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices along with a Mic and Headphone 3.5 mm Jack.
The Other side has the metal cover and is slightly protruded outward to provide a little more space to the graphics card and CPU cooler ensuring adequate air flow and cooling.
