Can the H100i V2 fits in the SPEC-03 mid tower with Kingston HyperX FURY 8GB ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I'm building an ultra gaming PC and each summer I buy some components..so this summer I'm supposed to be (CPU cooler/case/SSD/HDD/Power supply)...(for my cooler it's h100i V2/ for the case I tried to get cosmos SE but it's the double of the SPEC-03 and actually the SPEC-03 is great but I don't know if it can fits the cooler with high radiators..for my ssd I'm getting AMD r7 240gb...for my HDD getting a 2TB purple western Digital and for my power supply planning to get 750w gold 80 plus from cooler master(out of stock) or a 700w gold plus from thermaltake (instock)...
So my question is can the H100i V2 fits in the SPEC-03 without blocking or having issues with the high profile rams ? because issue is I will be in a f*cked up point if it won't fix and I won't be able to replace it.
So please if someone has the case with cooler and it works with him please post some pics about it...I do know that the coolers that can fit in the spec-03 are H55, H60, H75, H80i...but I'm asking of the h100i V2 can also fit without having problems with the high profile rams..
so please someone post pics and be sure..
Thanks.

The SPEC-03 is not a very good quality case, and is really priced ~$20-30 too high. You might want to take a look at some better options like the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M (which will fit the H100i with no issue) or NZXT S340.

Yeah, after having a Spec-01, & knowing how similar the Spec-03 should be, I couldn't really recommend it either. Mine is total junk. The feet break off easily. Corsair sent me a set of 4 replacements. I've broken 3 so far. The front panel is actually pretty hard to remove, which of course, makes it easier to break feet. Even worse, it doesn't clear the face plates of some 5.25" drives, so if you don't remove the drive before the front panel, you can break the fascia of your drive. The Spec-03 may be better in this regard, but I wouldn't bet my money on it. The included LED fan is terrible. Airflow is ok, but mine was extremely noisy. It was the first thing I replaced in mine. From what I've read, as long as nothing on your motherboard is too tall (may be a long shot), a 240mm radiator should fit, but you will have to remove your rear case fan. I just don't think it's worth it. You're only looking at a $10 to $20 difference after shipping & rebates to move up to the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M that Ciarlatano mentioned, & I think you'd be much happier with it in the long run. You'll spend that much just replacing the fans. The NZXT case looks nice as well, but of course, you give up the external 5.25" bay with it.

It's better built, but it is a really old design with a bad layout and limited airflow. Really not a case that will serve you well going forward.
