Corsair spec 01

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm gathering parts for my first build

I'm using pcpartpicker.com 

The case I'm using is a corsair spec 01 

I would like to use the Kracken x52

The site says it is not compatible with case I believe it will fit in the front of case any body use this case is a build?

I believe the drive cage can be removed.

I'm pretty sure there will be room

there won't be room

corsair.com says it only has 120mm AIO support.

OK the site also says that you can mount 2-140mm fans in the front

Just thought being that the Kracken x52 Rad is 275 x 123 x 30 

Sounds like it should work.

Im using the spec03 which is very similar. It does fit if you remove the drive cage. There is plenty of room for a push/ pull config if you want.

The top mount is a bit trickier. It depends on your motherboard and ram height.
The reason Corsair says "120mm only" is just to play safe.
