Product overview

• Six fan mounts, including 1 x 120mm Blue LED (Front) and 1x 120mm (Rear)
• 2 x USB 3.0 front ports with internal connector
• Large side panel window
• Cable routing and CPU cooler backplate motherboard cutouts
• Seven PCIe slots with room for long graphics cards up to 426mm long
• Install up to three 3.5" and two 2.5" drives simultaneously – tool free
• Dust filters for front and PSU intake

High airflow, industrial good looks, and an easy to use, modern layout
Carbide Series SPEC-03 has an extremely aggressive, game-oriented design and superior air cooling for your high-performance GPUs. The cleverly designed interior allows for the included LED-lit front intake fan to draw cold air directly to your graphics cards, and there’s room for up to six fans for massive cooling potential.

There’s a huge windowed side panel that lets you admire your work, and the cable routing system and dust filters help you build a clean system and keep it clean, too. Tool-free installation of up to three 3.5" hard drives and two solid-state drives make it easy to add and upgrade storage. And, it’s easy to live with, too -- the dual front panel USB 3.0 ports let you take advantage of the latest high-speed storage devices.

Huge side panel window
The aggressive look of the SPEC-03 makes it look great on the outside, but there’s beauty on the inside of a well-built system, too. The large side panel window lets you show it off.

LED front intake fan, with room for more
The 120mm front intake fan is bathed in soft LED lighting, and it’s oriented to draw cool air directly across your graphics cards. And if you want even more ventilation, you can add a second 120mm fan or even dual 140mm fans.

Flexible cooling potential
Like all Corsair cases, the SPEC-03 is designed for cooling, so you’re covered if you’re overclocking, running multiple GPUs, or if you just want more airflow. There are mounting points for up to six fans, including dual front 140mm or 120mm fans, dual 120mm fans on top, a bottom-mounted 120mm fan, and a rear 120mm fan.

Multiple drive bays
In addition to the two standard 5.25" optical drive bays, there are three 3.5" hard drive bays and two 2.5" solid-state drive bays.

Easy system builds, maintenance and upgrades
Builds should be easy, no matter what your budget. Drive installation is tool-free, and you get cable routing holes for neater-looking builds and better airflow. And, there’s a CPU cutout to allow for cooling upgrades without removing the motherboard. The front intake fan filters help keep dust out of the interior, and the front panel has dual USB 3.0 ports for fast performance from USB flash drives and portable hard drives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good airflow, NEEDS DUST COVERS Great value for money, good airflow, fantastic upgradability, but for the love of all that is holy, you're going to need to get dust covers over the intake fans or you're gonna be buying a lot of compressed air cans. 4/5 that's the only flaw I can find with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good with problems ok first of all for 45 pounds its a little over priced as i have had cheaper cases that are much better , but you are paying for the name. first of all its very small in side for a motherboard i had trouble doing up the 2 top screws as the heat sink i had had to be installed before had as the cut out on the back is to small the case needs to be 3cms more at top of case then it would be best low budget case ever . as you can see the cooler all most touches the case. now the pros it looks nice inside once its all in the air flow is very good amd cpu now running 34c not 40c thats only changing the case its got all the mounts in place you get a name brand the fans on top are all most touching heat sink helps get the air out faster the cons its a monster to do the top screws up if you nee to mount cooler first not much head room fans on top are all most touching heatsink can be a + or - over priced all in all now its done very nice would recommend to get your system cool

Is a hewlett packard motherboard compatible with this tower?

Asked by: Korbbux
Update to my previous answer, Generally not , with the Hewlett Packard Motherboard being slightly smaller than a "normal" motherboard. so i would advise that a Hewlett Packard Motherboard would not fit in this tower.
