Corsair SPEC-04 Build


PC build inside a budget tempered glass case the Corsair SPEC-04.
Everything is good in this case except one thing, personally I feel the front panel should be on the tempered glass side.





















Hope you like the build.
Thanks

Re: Corsair SPEC-04 Build

Beautiful, clean build. I am actually interested in buying this case so would be really helpful if you could answer a few questions of mine:

1 - Is the HDD cage removable? Is it attached via removable screws or permanently attached with rivets which can only be drilled out?
2 - Can you mount a 120mm fan behind the HDD cage? Does that semi-blocked front panel hinder air flow?
3 - Is there enough space to route the CPU connector behind the motherboard?

Thanks.

1 Yes HDD case can be easily screwed out.
2 Yes, I have mounted 3 fans in front. And yes small inlet do effect , but since overall air inlet covers 50% of front panel area, it seems not a great performance difference for me as i run all fans at low rpm.. Air flow is good as I am able to stable OC i7-8700K up to 5.1GHz,,but due to crappy TIM on these chips I keep all cores at 4.7 till i delid the CPU..
3. Very difficult,, one have to route the CPU power cable way before installing the motherboard. There is a proper cutout on motherboard tray, but since I am using RMx PSU, which have a capacitor right close to connector end, I am forced to route this cable via bigger cutout.

Thanks a lot for the info man. Appreciate it.

Glad to hear the HDD cage is easily removable and 3 fans can be mounted in front. And it looks like all these Spec cases have CPU cable routing issues due to the lack of sufficient space. But as long as I don't have to route it through the front, I don't mind doing what you've done and route it before installing the board.
