Integrated Water-cooling Features:
Reservoir, D5 Pump Top, D5 Pump Cover, Fill Port, Drain Port, roughly half of the cooling loop.
Integrated Cable Management Features
Cable management channels with cable combs:
3x 8pin EPS on the left side of the motherboard and up to two above the 24pin. 24pin Cable.
SATA Data x2.
6x PCI-E goes through the PSU Top Shroud
Reduced build time due to integration
With the pump and reservoir combo and roughly half of the loop integrated there is less assembly to be done.
Cable management is far quicker, just clip your cables in and they are all perfectly aligned.
Integration Cost Component:
A large portion of the case cost is due to the integration. These are components you do not have to purchase for your build. The pump and reservoir combo, fewer fittings, fewer tubes, no cable combs, or cable management components.
Theoretically the more integration the less compatibility. For Spectre's integration, the position of each integrated port and cable routing hole was carefully chosen based on statistics and our experience
Integration & Optimization:
With the integration we did not just develop a case, we also had to develop all the integrated components. This meant that we could focus more on optimization than would normally be possible. The pump top was designed for the D5 pump, maximizing flow to and from the distribution plate.
The reservoir was designed to remove air as quickly as possible making the loop easier to fill. The fill port is at the highest point on the back of the case and the drain point at the lowest point.
The cable channels and combs are designed for 4mm sleeved cables. They can be clipped in very quickly and there is far less work to do for clean cable management.
Spectre 3.0 fits XL-ATX motherboards and has 8 expansion slots. It is designed to fit the RTX 3090 Founders Edition even with the stock cooler. It can fit the largest PSUs up to 220mm. For the cooling system, it can fit 2x 360mm radiators 60mm thick with a single set of fans and a powerful D5 pump.
Spectre 3.0 has 6x 2.5” Drive positions. Two are on the top of the PSU shroud and there are four inside of the PSU shroud. The two on top of the PSU shroud cannot be used with vertically mounted GPUs.
Spectre 3.0 has 6x 2.5” Drive positions, 4 of these can be used at the same time. Two are on the top of the PSU shroud and there are four inside of the PSU shroud. The two on top of the PSU shroud cannot be used with vertically mounted GPUs.
Every component of Spectre is CNC machined from a solid block of material. With the level of transparency and being an open case, we wanted it to be a celebration of the raw materials. There is no hidden or backside, and this also goes for the components being installed. Due to this, we selected the most high-end materials manufacturing process. The Distribution Plate is machined on a CNC router built from thick sheets of cast acrylic. It is hand-assembled with silicone gaskets and stainless-steel fasteners, and pressure tested. The metal components are machined with Extreme Precision from solid blocks of 6061 aluminum on a CNC mill then sandblasted and anodized.
