Help with adding more airflow to spec omega rgb


Recommended Posts

I have the black corsair spec omega rgb, and it's a really nice, unique looking case. The only downside is that the only place for intake is the small triangle at the bottom of the front panel. I see that the spec alpha and the omega are pretty much the same, so I was wondering if it is possible to buy just the spec alpha's front panel and remove the large mesh. Then remove the tempered glass part from the front panel of the spec omega and replace it with the mesh from the alpha.

I removed the front glass and panel. I also removed the top panel. I ordered some hex-mesh sheet metal to replace the glass and I intend to hot knife cut holes and install the screens over the holes. The limited air intake on this case is a serious design flaw and what looks like an extreme case of form over function.

Hi friend! At the end, did you remplace the glass front panel of the Spec Omega with the Spec Alpha's mesh one? I am having the same problem with the Spec Omega, which is beautiful but has an horrible airflow. I am thinking about getting a Spec Alpha front panel just to make that switch.

Id really apreciate your help!
