We’ll now move in for a closer look at the external aspects of SPEC-06. The front panel features a plastic fascia with a thin curved stroke which begins at the bottom and spans to the top. Behind this stroke, Corsair has installed an RGB lighting module which works in conjunction with controller at the back of the chassis. Later in the review we’ll provide a demo of how this looks when powered up. This plastic cover can be detached and allows access to the front cooling and a magnetic dust filter.
Around the back, we have an opening at the bottom for installing the PSU, the RGB lighting controller, seven PCI expansion slot covers and perforated mesh to work in conjunction with the 120mm rear exhaust cooling fan. This has vertical mounting points so the fan can be moved up/down.
Up at the very top of SPEC-06 we have the front panel connectivity. This includes the following features: power button, twin USB 3.0 ports, headphone/microphone jacks and a reset button. So, fairly basic for most users – we’re somewhat disappointed to see no USB 3.1 functionality though!
Beyond these ports we have a magnetic dust filter which can be easily removed, and underneath, honeycomb mesh with mounting points for two 120mm fans or a single 140mm fan. Additionally, we can install up to a 240mm radiator at the top too.
Next, we’ll delve inside SPEC-06 for a look at the internal layout and features.
