Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-04 Tempered Glass Case Review

It is almost a requirement for any new case to feature tempered glass of some sort, usually in the case of a side panel. The tempered glass trend has been around for a while now, and some manufacturers are taking a look at some of their previous designs and incorporating glass side panels where they deem it to be appropriate. Corsair is not one to slack behind, and they have just released the SPEC-04 Tempered Glass, a slightly re-designed version of their popular Carbide Series SPEC-04 budget case that now includes a tempered glass side panel, for just $69.

Special thanks to Corsair for providing us with the SPEC-04 Tempered Glass to review.


SPEC 04 TG Specs


The SPEC-04 Tempered Glass comes in your standard cardboard box, featuring side panels that show off the case found inside, in both complete and “exploded” views.

Inside, the case is surrounded by a plastic bag and then held in place securely with two foam pieces. Making sure a case like this is well-secured is of the utmost importance, as a shattered tempered glass panel is the last thing a consumer wants to receive.

Along with the case, an accessory pack can be found inside the box and contains a product manual, mounting screws, and a few cable ties.
