With it’s asymmetrical, hard-edged exterior, the SPEC-04 is ready to stand out, with three different color options to match your system, Black and Yellow, Black and Red or Black and Grey. The angular styling isn’t just there for looks, it hides a side-mounted front panel equipped with USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports and a huge ventilated section to provide excellent Direct Airflow Path airflow.

Whichever color you choose, the SPEC-04 offers the performance to back up its looks, with a pre-installed 120mm LED-lit front intake fan and room for up to five fans; two 120mm or 140mm in the front, two 120mm in the roof and one 120mm in the rear. Fill each slot with a CORSAIR AF, SP, ML or HD series 120mm fan for maximum airflow, or fit any 120mm CORSAIR Hydro Series liquid cooler for watercooled performance. What’s more, with both front-intake and PSU dust filters, the SPEC-04 is equipped to keep your system clean, as well as cool.

Inside the SPEC-04 is packed with a host of builder friendly features to make your next gaming PC build as easy as possible.

Expansive storage mounts accommodate up to three 3.5in HDDs and two 2.5in SDD’s, while multiple cable routing cutouts and tie downs make for easy cable management to keep your build looking spacious and uncluttered.
