Corsair have expanded their Carbide Series with the new SPEC-06 RGB, a $110 ATX case with a tempered glass side panel and an illuminated front panel to satisfy urges of red, green and blue. If you are noticing a lack of drives in the picture below, it is because they've moved them all to the back of the motherboard tray, with mounting points for four 2.5" SSDs and two 3.5" HDDs.
The case itself is quite roomy at 523x296x553mm (21×11.7×21.8") and can fit a GPU of up to 370mm in length. Your cooling options include installing a half dozen 120mm fans or you can install up to a 360mm radiator in the front, 240mm on the top and 120mm on the back; or any mix of those. Whatever you choose you will benefit from the Direct Airflow Path design which moves air through the case efficiently, in part thanks to the lack of drives and separate chamber for the PSU. Check out the full PR below the rainbow of front panel lighting available.

Go away bot.
So, room for 3 x 120mm fans in front but no clear way for them to get air into their Direct Airflow Path. From the Corsair website it looks like the front panel has a gap of a few mm behind it. With the width of the front panel I’d have preferred them to use slower 140mm fans instead.
Also this Direct Airflow Path is nothing new. You can probably achieve it in many cases if you avoid putting in HDDs.
