Case Build & Finished Product

Not much had changed from when the chassis was removed from the box until now when it comes to the front. We did have to remove the intake fan to fit our AIO, which is also blocking some of what we were able to see through the window initially.

We did have to opt to remove the HDD bay to make it easier to use the modular PSU. Outside of that, everything we installed fits, and the build looks quite good considering there is no PSU cover.

The PSU fit without issue, and the video card slid into place without having to flex the chassis or force it in. The dust shield also clipped into place without any hassle, all told, the build was smooth as silk.

With plenty of locations to tie the wires to the motherboard tray, even the back of the motherboard tray is clean in its appearance. We were able to find room for all of the cables, although we did have to use an SSD tray to run some wires through to the bottom, overall, we are pleased with the results.

With everything ready to be powered on, we can see that there is a slight bit of tint in the tempered glass. Not enough to block the view, as we can see all of the components, but once they light up, things look even better.

Once powered, the Spec-Omega comes to life, not only on the inside with the LEDs from the cooler, RAM, and the video card but also on the outside. Not only does the power button glow white, but there is a line between the black and red sections that glows red as well. While the design is aggressive, we like it.
