Review: New Carbide Series Case – Corsair SPEC-06

Inside Structure of the Corsair Carbide SPEC-06

The Corsair Carbide SPEC-06 has a very reasonable size and offers plenty of room for proper cable management. In addition, the interior is very open, everything can be easily reached. Of course, this also applies to the fans. These are mounted in the interior, but the cable is easier to hide. Worthy of praise are the screws on the glass pane, which can be removed by hand, and the rubber-protected cable bushings. The 3.5-inch data carriers can also be mounted without tools.

The Carbide SPEC-06 offers a lot of space for the hardware. With mainboards up to ATX it’s over, but graphics cards can have a length of up to 370 mm, with CPU coolers it’s 170 mm height. Through a hole in the separation from the power supply area, you have the possibility to mount a radiator with a size of 360 mm in the front. According to Corsair, the power supply can be 180 mm long, but due to the limited space up to the hard disk cage, only a modular power supply with this size would make sense, so that the cables are not simply randomly plugged in.

You don’t have to worry about enough expansion slots, with seven you are very well served with the Carbide SPEC-06. If you want to show off your graphics card, you can do the same, because there are two vertical slots so that you can place the graphics card directly behind the glass pane.

The test system contains a Ryzen 7 1700 and a Gigabyte GTX 1060 with 6GB from Aorus. The ASUS PRIME X370-A motherboard contains 16 GB RAM from Ballistix.
