Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA Mid-Tower Chassis

The front of the chassis is angled at the top to a point, various angles are making up the rest of the bezel as you move down it, and the bottom looks like Dart Vader's mouth. On the left is the red section of plastic, while on the right is clear plastic, surrounded with a thin black frame, and we can even see angled bits of the frame through the glass with the ghosted Corsair logo near the bottom.

The front I/O can be found near the top of the front bezel, and in it, we see the power button at the top, which is backlit white. Below it, there is the two USB 3.0 ports, a pair of 3.5mm HD Audio jacks, a small HDD activity LED, and a slightly larger reset button.

The top of the chassis uses a similar design to the front, with a high ridgeline running front to back, and most of it is red, and some are black. However, this time, the transparent window is replaced with mesh to allow the chassis to breathe.

Even from the side, the design is angular, both with the way the top is, as well as the use of the feet at the bottom. The left side of the chassis is covered with tempered glass, which is painted at the top and bottom to block the view of the frame and is held in place with flatter screws that use an Allen wrench to remove them.

At the top, there is a pair of thumbscrews to release the top portion of the chassis, and the rear I/O and adjustable fan location below it. There are seven expansion slots with passive ventilation to the right of them, and the PSU fills the hold at the bottom.

The right side of the chassis is more subdued than the left. The visible plastic is black but still angled, which matches the steel door that covers this side of the case. The door swings open like a car door does, and it is held in place with a pair of thumbscrews at the back.

Under the chassis, we see a dust filter under the PSU, which is removable out the back. The rest of the floor is solid, except where the removable HDD cage is tabbed and screwed into place. We also see just how big the feet are from this angle, and only the tips of them have rubber pads applied.
