In the middle of 2017, Corsair released the Carbide Spec-04 case, it is a low cost mid-tower geared at the budget builders while still providing a solid foundation for the latest hardware. Initially it had a retail price of $49.99 and featured an angular design to the front of the case giving it a modern look. Since its release, Tempered Glass panels have become extremely popular, and users have been looking for budget friendly cases that feature Tempered Glass side panels. Corsair heard this and decided to do a small update to the Spec-04. Corsair has recently released the Spec-04 Tempered Glass edition, which is identical to the original Spec-04 with the exception of the Tempered Glass side panel. Adding the Tempered Glass side panel, does cause a small increase in the price, the Spec-04 Tempered Glass has a retail price of $59.99 shipped.
