The Build TyRedasaurus Rex

GIven the MSRP of $59 the wiring on the Spec-04 TG was fast and even though we were fighting the ultra heavy cables of a 1500W PSU we had plenty of room for wires and pigeon holes were always close at hand.

We know for $59 you can only expect so much and Corsair definitely gives good bang for your bucks on the Spec-04 TG but we would have easily spent a few more bucks for rubber wiring hole covers which would have made for a more elegant wiring job.

Throw on a couple of well chosen RGB toys like the Corsair K70 Lux and the Glaive Mouse and your gaming rig will get plenty of jealous looks and it’s easy to see why we call it TyRedasaurous Rex.

On a scale of 1 – 10 with 10 being the easiest build we would give the Spec-04 TG a 9 with half of the missing point smudges and the other half just the nature of Mid-Towers compact size for high end gaming builds.

We kept the MSRP of the Spec-04 TG under wraps and we ask anyone who stopped and oogled it how much they thought it cost and most guesses were north of $100 so Corsair put the bank for buck factor in this beauty. Response to the Spec-04 was a pretty universal beautiful rig comment and we couldn’t be happier with the look and ease of installation.
