Corsair did well with this m-atx case, has alot of features and looks good, very sturdy, based on their 88R chassis. Cable management could be a little better but understandable in a tight m-atx form factor case. only downside is plastic thumb screws that secure the window and back panel. Plenty of fan ports and radiator support.

Cable management can definitely be improved a bit more, otherwise it's a decent little case!
The HDD cage could definitely be moved a bit more to the right to allow for better clearance with power supplies. This case says it cannot support PSU's exceeding 160mm, however I have a 170mm PSU in this case and it fits fine. It's important to note however that a non-modular PSU with fat cables at that size will probably make your life very hard. I do not recommend doing that. Flat cables are a much better choice in general for this case. If you don't plan to use the HDD cage, you won't have any issues.
I had a minor annoyance with the 5.25 bay clip, as it would not auto lock my fan controller. I ended up having to remove the clip and screw the controller in instead.
The case itself is very lightweight; typical of the SPEC line. I've built in the SPEC-03 before, so it was pretty familiar territory and I knew what I was getting myself into.
Corsair, why you no CPU power hole?

Great case just wish it had more cable management. Otherwise airflow and the option for a Liquid Cooler is great.

Nice case with some good features. but the acrylic sidepanel catches scratches realy fast and they show up when theres light from the inside of the case. At first I didnt think that I would be able to get a full loop of this size in there. But im quite amized by how much space I had in the end. Some rubber gromets for the cable holes would´ve been a nice addition but what do I expect from a 50$ case.

I got the as an open box item from Amazon Warehouse in like new condition. I like the case, but it has some design flaws. Even with a fully modular PSU, the managing of the cables was daunting to say the least.

This case is very hit-and-miss. For $60 USD, you can do a whole lot better.
- Cable management is pretty rough. Not a lot of space behind mobo.
- Only one blue LED fan, no hub or controller
- No screws for mounting power supply.
- Thumbscrews are easy to lose, and ones that attach the side panels are different sizes from the ones that attach the drive cage.
- Top vents are unfiltered and don't ship with anything to cover them
- PCI slot covers are non-replacable. You may cut yourself while breaking them off.
- Fans were very hard to properly screw in, but maybe I'm just stupid
- The 5.25" cage is not tool-less. Don't be an idiot like me or your ODD will slide out of the front.
- Front panel is very difficult to remove, and the intake filters are mounted directly to it.

Looking back, I probably shouldn't have purchased this case at that price. It really doesn't have that many amenities, and it looks gaudy and bulky.
