Corsair Carbide SPEC-06 RGB Review

👤by Vortez Reviews Comments 📅14-08-18

There’s a lot to like about Corsair’s new addition to the Carbide Series. The SPEC-06 is adept in each area of case design and we’d have no qualms in recommending it.

It’s always pleasing to see specific models of cases available in different colours and the choice of black or white gives system builders enough flexibility to double down on aesthetics. The white edition we’ve taken a look at today is elegant in every sense of the word and the smooth RGB stroke on the front panel doesn’t overstep the mark.

As with previous Corsair cases, the SPEC-06 offers good build quality and we encountered no problems during the installation process. The internal layout and space allows for an assortment of high-end kit to be installed and for those wanting to opt for a closed loop liquid cooler, there are multiple locations to attach such a device.

We were surprised by SPEC-06’s price-tag which sits at UK: £85 AU: $79 US: $89. The inclusion of tempered glass and RGB functionality understandably pushes up the cost but there is some fierce competition in this price-bracket.

If elegance and flexibility are key, Corsair’s new Carbide Series SPEC-06 is a worthy contender for the short-list.
