Corsair launches Carbide SPEC-Alpha mid-tower case

Corsair is well-known in the PC hardware world for its cases and today, the company is switching things up a bit with a bold new angular design for the Carbide SPEC-Alpha case. This is a mid-tower case packed with features to make builds clean with plenty of airflow for cooling.

The design is really what makes the SPEC-Alpha stand out from the crowd but it has a lot to offer on the inside as well, including mounts for four SSDs, a three-speed fan controller for the three included 120mm fans, a ‘Direct Airflow’ path thanks to the removal of traditional drive bays and plenty of space for liquid cooling upgrades.


The side panel comes with a large window to show off your build and there are plenty of cable cut outs and tie down points so that you can keep your wiring looking clean. Drive installation is tool-free, there is 240mm radiator support in the front of the case and there is native USB 3.0 support for modern PCs.

The SPEC-Alpha comes in black and red, black and grey and white and red colour options and will cost $79.99 in the US and £69.99 in the UK.

KitGuru Says: This is certainly a new approach for Corsair as far as the design goes. Are any of you shopping around for a new PC case? Are you thinking of going with Corsair?

Briony builds ALL WHITE PC in the Limited Edition DARK BASE 700

Back in 2017 Leo took at look at the Dark Base 700 from Be Quiet! Leo liked the case with its sleek styling and impressively quiet design but thought it was a little on the pricey side. During CES a new version of the case, the 'Limited edition White Dark Base 700' was announced. With only 3000 units available there hasn't been much movement on the price with the case retailing for £166.99. I was sent one of the 3000 cases and was happy to use it to create an all white build and document the whole process on video.
