A Closer Look Exterior
Despite an outer box that shows some wear the chassis is well protected on two foam pads and covered in a lightweight plastic sack and arrived unscathed inside the substantial packaging.
We are liking the big open smoked glass side on the Corsair SPEC-4 TG but it's a good thing the wiring amenities are excellent because there's very little area to hide any wiring that isn't well routed. The distinctive lines and angular design will pull people eyes as they come into the viewing range of the chassis. Notice there's no accommodation for an optical drive in the SPEC-4 TG and that seems to be a trend in the chassis field but we really like to see an optical drive bay. A USB 3 external optical adaptor, open the side of the chassis or transfer files to a USB drive are your options for optical disks. This can be problematic if no machine with an optical drive is in the area.
Moving to the back side of the Corsair SPEC-4 TG you see a well-raised side that will allow for easy cable routing without having to break out the steam iron to get the side close without bulging. Nothing ruins a good build like a bulging side.
Full on side view the Corsair SPEC-4 TG gives off an aura of much more expensive smoked glass chassis and you get a peek at all the wiring pidgeon holes.
