Title: The Corsair Carbide SPEC-ALPHA Mid-Tower ATX Brings an Edge to PC Gaming Cases
LAS VEGAS, Nevada – CES 2016 – January 4th 2016
- Corsair®, a world leader in
enthusiast PC hardware and components, today announced the new Corsair Carbide
Series SPEC-ALPHA mid-tower gaming case. With a striking angular design and an
oversized window to show off its roomy interior, the SPEC-ALPHA offers a sleek
look in either black or red to complement its efficient cooling features.
Perfect for PC gamers’ next rig, the SPEC-ALPHA is equipped with three 120mm
fans for Direct Airflow Path cooling, controlled by a three-speed switch on the
case’s front panel.
Uniquely styled with a sharp, stand-out design and LED fans, the SPEC-ALPHA
gives gamers a stunning tower that looks as great as it performs. Featuring
native USB 3.0 support and room for up to four SSDs, the SPEC-ALPHA is able to
handle and hold the best performance PC hardware. With a large side window that
perfectly frames the interior space, the case’s cable routing cutouts and tie
downs ensure your system maintains a clean look inside and out. The case also
allows for tool-free installation and side panel removal for easy building and
The neat interior combines with a Direct Airflow Path layout for optimal
cooling and airflow. With no bulky 5.25” drive cage, the SPEC-ALPHA creates a
clear path from the front intake straight to the CPU and GPU. The three-speed
120mm fans adapt to user needs, from near-silent operation to high-performance
GPU cooling. The SPEC-ALPHA is also front 240mm radiator compatible, allowing
for additional liquid-cooling upgrades.
The SPEC-ALPHA case comes in two distinct color options - black and red. The
black build offers gamers a strong, sophisticated look with grey accents, while
the striking red build features a contrasting red and white design that
highlights the case’s angles.
