Rated 5 out of 5 by FireJames Great case, no price premium needed.
I've used this case for 3 separate builds, one my own and two for budget builds for friends. I don't know what I can say that others already haven't due to this case being out for a while so I'll just list off a few things I love about it:
1) Power button/USB's on the top of the case - A must for some (like me)
2) Great ventilation with all the fan slots.
3) It looks nice with the front grill and the side window being pleasing to look at.
3) Price - The main pro of this case is it's reasonable price, considering how nice and rugged this case is, fairly good deal. plus savings on the case can go towards a better CPU/GPU in your build :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scrob Well made, easy to build
Bought this for my son's new system. Looks good (well, you'll know if you like the looks or not), no problems in putting the system in (the case design allows you to stuff a lot of the cables behind the motherboard) and it all works.
Bought this from Scan, with a 3XS overclocked i5 motherboard bundle, and provided my own PSU, graphics card and SSD.
The really interesting thing is that in an overclocked gaming system it's really quiet. That's undoubtedly due to the components rather than the case (which by design has more holes than Swiss cheese), but I'm left feeling a bit miffed that it's quieter than my older overclocked gaming rig in an expensive low noise enclosure. Possibly the Corsair could be noisy with commodity components, but from my point of view the SPEC-03 gets a big thumbs up - if you can live with the looks, and know what components to buy then it's an excellent choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JakLawrence Function over form
Good size case, great airflow, nice drive mounting design, and even reasonable watercooling support if you're creative.
However window is in an odd place and unless the PC is higher than shoulder height on your desk you're likely to just see the PSU through it.
Bulge in side panel is good for cable management but getting braided extensions in here is difficult and tidying up a non-mod PSU would be near impossible.
Overall a good case to build in but it's definitely function over form, can't go too extravagant inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomaShen good build
its very good. spacious for a mid tower! not heavy at all.the only problem i have with it is the exaust fan... its very disturbing when you sit in silence,the fan is like vibrating(even though ive installed rubber pads between it and the case) but will deffinetly change the rear and the front fans soon ! overall this is good buy !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott32 Great Case
Great build quality and it looks cool, the only con would be the lack of space between the top of the case and the motherboard. Any extra fans will overhang the board causing issues with memory and cpu coolers. I have a cooler master hyper 212 evo installed without an issue and the bulge in the back panel provides plenty of space for wires. I've already added extra led fans to mine, the red glow looks great with the lights out. This is a great budget case.
