Corsair’s launched its SPEC-OMEGA chassis at the start of the year, with a distinct front fascia design. Unfortunately for many, the unique design was married with a red LED strip through its centre, limiting its appeal to specific setups. Addressing this issue, Corsair has now released its SPEC-OMEGA RGB, leaving customisation in the user’s hands.
The SPEC-OMEGA RGB shares many of the same design choices as its predecessor, with the “unmistakable asymmetrical design and tempered glass panels to the front and side.” The stylistic angular aesthetic is built to pair well with the 30 RGB LEDs lined down the front of the chassis.
Corsair ships the SPEC-OMEGA RGB two 120mm Corsair HD120 RGB fans, with space for four more resulting in a healthy airflow. The lighting is controlled by the supplied Lighting Node PRO digital RGB lighting controller and the free Corsair iCUE software.

Despite being a mid-tower, Corsair emphasises that the SPEC-OMEGA RGB is built with space and compatibility in mind. The larger 360mm liquid cooling radiators, seen on the Corsair Hydro Series H150i Pro, should have no problem fitting into the chassis.
Tidiness is another key aspect to the case, with Corsair providing a removable PSU cover to neatly house the majority of wires. This combined with “a wealth of cable tie-downs, routing holes and grommets” should ensure that all system internals sit proudly, unobstructed behind the tempered glass panel.
The SPEC-OMEGA RGB comes in two versions, with Corsair offering a black or a white variant, dropping the red edition that was included in its predecessor’s lineup. Both versions are readily available from the Corsair website and select third-party retailers.
KitGuru Says: Considering how much of a natural fit RGB lighting is to the design of the SPEC-OMEGA, it’s surprising that Corsair took four months to release it after the original design. What do you think of the SPEC-OMEGA RGB?
