When it comes to design, looks and features in PC Case, Corsair has always stood ahead and with this new Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA Case, Corsair ones again have given gamers and enthusiast PC builder a great mid tower case to build high end gaming PC around.
Case is having nice look with excellent air flow design. But the tempered glass side panel is secured with four hex key screws. Although screws are having a rubber spacer but why hex key screws instead of thumb screws. Every time one has to hunt for the hex key to open the case. And most concerned part is that the screw hole is very close to the corner of the glass and if somehow user over tightens the screw, the whole tempered glass can shatter into tiny pieces.
Finally at a price tag of Rs.8.5k(approx.) Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA Tempered Glass Case is slight expensive in the range, but with tempered glass in side and front of the case still makes it one of the best showcased high end gaming PC case.
