    We review the new Corsair SPEC Omega RGB chassis and give it thorough test. The SPEC Omega RGB (and cases like it) aim to continue the more recent push toward a more diversified system. Read the rev...

    Case looks quite good. But those HDD cages...
    Putting into that mounting any HDD will result in everything rattling.

    But as written, 3.5'' is not used much anymore. With USB 3.0, people can put it into external box and power it up only when needed. Fan controller may come handy. But today, every half good MB has both PWM and Voltage control for fans, so it just takes a bit of tuning to get desired temperature to noise behavior.

    I've had this case for about 2 months now (the white version) and I immediately had the exact same concerns as you did about the frontal airflow especially, and to a degree the top of the case being half blocked as well.
    I've never really bought into the idea of closed cases and static pressure, etc.... So I've always bought cases that are wide open as possible so I could always have multiple fans frontal, side window pushing outside air into the case, especially since I always have my PC sitting on a window ledge with a window I can open anytime to let in fresh cool air as opposed to room temperature air.

    With that said after having this case for 2 months now, all of my immediate concerns are now alleviated, as the temperatures inside the case are ridiculously low, (both CPU with an evga liquid cooler and GPU stock cooler under load are between 45-60c's depending on what game I'm playing) and another major bonus is there is VERY little dust I have to deal with now with the Corsair. Every single one of my previous cases I would have to de dust every month, the Corsair I have yet to see any layer of dust anywhere inside and it's been about 2 months now.

    The only issue I have is I just for the life of me can't figure out the fan setups, I have added 2 more case fans inside (non corsair) and I just can't get any of them running consistently. They glitch all over the place, I've tried multipe fan controller softwares.
