    Not keen on the unhappy expression the front panel is sporting.

    The cooler master K500L looks like better value, it's a similar case for the same price but bundles 3 fans. The lite5 is even better - real tempered glass, 3 RGB fans and only £5 more

    Tell me they're not allen keys holding the side panel in place,sigh.

    I have their Obsidian 450D case and clean dust out of it once a week, taking off the side panel via two nice and simple rear thumbscrews, which is essential as the PC sits on the desk right next to my monitor.

    Having to fumble about, in and around my monitor with Allen keys in each corner would make this task a HUGE pain in the backside.

    No Corsair, no.

    Only one USB3.0 port? In 2018?
    There's budget cases with USB type-C for rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish's sake.

    Not a fan of the faceplate's look either. Garbage

    Heh, this is one of the reasons I love my LianLi case, one thumbscrew, pull out catch, take out side panel. Honestly it's one of the smartest design decisions I've seen on a case for side panels (without being tacky).

    Re: Corsair Carbide SPEC-05 mid-tower release imminent

    Looking at the pic's it looks like the right side panel is bulged out to makes space for cables, otherwise there's not much space back there (it's a common budget case trick)
    150mm for cooler height
    That means 120mm fan based air coolers will not fit, yes they managed to squeeze a 120 AIO cooler in there but boy that build must of been a tight fit.
