Corsair Spec-06 Chassis Review

Test Bench and Installation

We would like to thank Corsair for sending us a PSU and some extra RGB fans to play with. The fans especially made this build pop with color. Below are the components were going to be incorporating in the build.

Motherboard Gigabyte Aorus Z370 Gaming 7
Processor Intel i7 8700k
Graphics Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 ti
PSU Corsair HX 750
CPU Cooler Corsair H115i Pro
RAM 4 x 8 gb 2933 mhz HyperX Predator 
Fans 3 Corsair ML 120 mm RGB 
SSD Samsung SM951 512 GB M.2
HDD Seagate 1TB HDD

Right off the bat what we see here is the small amount of space you actually have to work with. As you can not remove the PSU cover, this made space extremely tight. We decided to keep the 3.5″ Drive bays in to appeal to the more budget gamer.
Our full size motherboard fit like a glove into its designated spot and we felt like we had plenty of room to play with in regards to running cables through grommets. The space above the motherboard only has two openings for cables to go through and made it quite difficult for our big hands to thread the needle.  Our 280 mm radiator was literally made for this case, providing ample room for the AIO tubes to weave their way from pump to rad. As you can see the cutout in the PSU cover made it possible for our radiator to fit. You get a much better look here at the actual lack of space for cables, This is not a con due to the compact nature of this chassis. Up top you see two 120 mm exhaust fans to expel the heat. In addition to the two fans located on the top for exhaust, we added another for two reasons. One, the more airflow the better. Two, more RGB was needed in our idea of beautiful.There is an option of vertically mounting GPU’s with this chassis. As you can see the metal pieces which need to be removed are useless once they’re gone and if you want to switch back at some point you will have a huge open hole in the chassis. Cable management was simple. Corsair provided ample amounts of zip ties to help in the organization of these small black snakes.  We removed our 2.5″ quick release drive bays in order to replace them with the fan software controllers Corsair provided us. This was a huge success and they look like they belonged there.
We are in love with this build. Everything fell right into place with limited need for troubleshooting.

Canadian summers are hot and short and feel like they are always coming to an end. Before the leaves start falling and the white, cold and wet stuff starts tumbling from the sky we took the opportunity to go outside and get some great photos.Today we are going to be taking an in-depth look at Corsairs new addition to their Spec family, the Spec-06. We always tend to side with the flat black or gloss black chassis on our site so we thought we would switch it up with an all white chassis. Lets see what Corsair has to offer…

Budget Godess

Corsair bridges the gap between budget and quality here. Brings the best of both sides which creates a chassis every gamer and enthusiast will enjoy.
