CES kicks off in a couple of days, but plenty of companies like to get a headstart on things. One company is Corsair, which has three new entries to its Carbide series of cases. Two of the Carbide cases, the 400Q and 400C, are pretty typical of what you expect from Corsair. However, it's the SPEC-ALPHA that really changes up the game, with its angular lines, unique style, and two different color options. The SPEC-ALPHA features a sharp, stand-out design with those angular lines and a shape that sets it apart from the rest. It features three 120mm LED fans for cooling and lighting options, with the interior featuring a Direct Airflow Path to help keep everything inside from overheating. There's no 5.25" cage inside, so the front intake can directly hit both the CPU and GPU. The three included fans can be controlled via a three-speed switch on the front of the case, plus the front can fit a 240mm radiator for those going under water. The SPEC-ALPHA can fit an ATX motherboard, up to four SSDs, has support for USB 3.0, and features a large side window to show off your system. It also comes in black or red for your case color, with the inside of both in all-black.

Flipping to a little bit more of a traditional case, we have Corsair's new Carbide 400Q and 400C. The 400Q features sound dampening material to keep your system from being heard, while the 400C features a full-sized case window on the left side to show off the internals. Both feature the Direct Airflow technology to keep your components nice and cool with a 140mm fan in the front and a 120mm in the rear. More fans can be installed, or you can go for water cooling, as both cases feature support for a 360mm radiator in the front, a 240mm rad up top, and a 120mm rad on the rear. Dust filters are featured on both cases, as is tool-free drive installation and two modular covers for the PSU and 3.5" drives. A full-sized ATX motherboard and multiple GPUs are also supported in the two cases. The 400Q features sound dampening material in the front, side, and top panels, while the 400C has the left side panel replaced with a window to better highlight what you're running.

The Corsair Carbide SPEC-ALPHA, 400Q, and 400C can be seen during CES later this week. The 400Q and 400C will be available for purchase next month for $99.99 each, with the SPEC-ALPHA coming in March for $79.99 for either the black or red color. Each case comes with a two-year warranty.
