I think that with the h100 it will make contact and there's no space... Also you will lose the optical Bay...
Not a good option

ok...thanks
i don't know what space is between the end of the radiator and the front panel, but if it's more than 30 mm it's ok...it must fit all together. apraciete if someone take a look at the case..maybe some photos...
about the front bay...why u can't use it with the 230mm?...it has the same hight like the 200, only a bit lager (230 is 200X230mm,200 is 200X200mm)...i want to put the SilverStone FP58 in the 5,25 drive bay...
thanks for the atention and excuse my bad english

I'm currently in the process of ordering my parts for the same case. I'm pretty early in the process as I've only got the case, an SSD drive, and the PSU. Right now I'm ordering the cooling. I decided to go with air cooled system as the whole concept of water cooling in an electrical environment scares the hell out of me, plus you add the additional mechanical element of a pump and imo you're just increasing risk to the system. I've decided upon the Noctua NH-L12 cpu cooler for quiet and it's manufacturer specced for the new Haswell gen processors with both fans in use. I'll have to buy low profile ram most likely, but from what I've read on reviews this should work as a viable and quiet option.

I've also read that buying the 80mm fans for the back to suck air out is not really necessary as the case designed airflow will vent it out naturally just fine. I'm wondering if anyone agrees with this or will I be risking to much ambient heat by not getting the rear exhaust fans? I will be adding the second 120mm side fan of course, and....

The main reason I landed here is that I was searching for an answer to my 200mm question. Does space allow for a 200mm front fan with a width of 25-30mm? The two I am looking at are the 200mm Bit Fenix Spectre Pro, and the same Cooler Master one that others have mentioned in this thread. They are both wider than the stock 140mm front fan the case comes with.

Any news on this build? I was looking foward to it.

*UPDATE* 5/7/2014 [3:15 am]

After Approx. 4 months of waiting for FedEx to start shipping to Yemen again [The country is not in stable condition] finally i received some of the parts and the rest is will arrive in approx. 2-3 weeks.

Received:

Case: Obsidian 250D
Cooler: H100i
Power Supply: AX860 [Not the i version as after some research i discovered that the non-i AX860 had a better Fan+Better PSU in general ]
Fans: 1xMega Flow 200mm[For the front of the case], 2xSP120 High performance 120mm [Replacement for the H100i stock fans]


Forgive me for the lack of the photos as my phone and camera are not available today [Give me around two days]


Going to waste the next couple of weeks fiddling around the case and building some ideas on how to paint it and if everything goes as planned i might even mode the top windows so i can pass through it the two tubes of a 120mm radiator that will be mounted on top! what is that 120mm radiator for you say? its for the mighty R9 295x2 biggrin.gif. This part of the plan is still in my imagination as i dont know if the mounting mechanism will work or even that i will get that r9 295x2 any time soon!

Will write my first impression about the Build quality of the Corsair line up when i upload the photos as its already 3:15 am


Thank you for subbing and forgive me for any grammatical/spelling mistakes as English is not my first language.

Something i was listening to when i posted this. Enjoy! biggrin.gif

*UPDATE* 5/10/2014 [4:15 am] GMT+3

So today i will post some of my initial impression with the components i received


Case:

Packaging:

The Corsair 250D has been that case i fell in love with the second it was announced and i knew i had to get one as soon as possible and that day has finally arrived! Initially i saw the box/packaging which was nice, it had two hard foam around the front and the back of the case which protected all the sides of the case perfectly from any damage (Which was a bonus as i shipped it internationally) the whole thing was inside a thick plastic cover and kudos to Corsair for getting rid of that adhesive plastic cover that protected the front panel from scratches as reviews showed it was a pain in the back to remove as it left a lot of adhesive residue on the brushed aluminum panel which was hard to clean up.

Size and TechSpecs:

The case it self was exactly the size i imagined it to be specially as it wasn't the smallest ITX case neither the largest one(Calling the prodigy a fatazz) although its a cube its still a pretty compact cube in point of view.

Official TechSpecs

Case Drive Bays:
(x1) 5.25in
(x2) 2.5in
(x2) Combo 3.5in/ 2.5in

(x1) Headphone Port
(x1) Microphone Port

Fan Mount Locations Front:
(x1) 120/140/200mm

Side: (x2) 120mm

Fans Included Front:
(x1) 140mm
Side: (x1) 120mm

Radiator Mount Locations Front:
120/140mm
Side: 240mm

Build Quality:

I know that Corsair is known for their build quality but boy oh boy as my first Corsair case the 250D sure proved its grounds as an Obsidian, Yes its not a 900D in build quality but still for $79.99 its still worth every penny (The price i got it for although its MSRP is $89.99)

The whole case is made of steel which will make it feel as sturdy as possible the front panel is made of plastic that is covered with a thin layer of brushed aluminum which is a touch i like.

A lot of thumb screws around the case which makes it easier to access and semi-tool less but still i would've loved if the thumb screws where irremovable from the panel to prevent misplacing them


Interior layout:

Inside of the 250D is spacious and well organized but i still haven't figure out how am i going to lay out the cabling after i receive the mobo and the cpu and i noticed after removing the front ODD cage the case was a little wobbly but after closing the panels it felt as sturdy as before so its not a real problem.

The case has five fan mounting points 2x80mm ,2x120mm and 1x140mm/200mm, you can install an H100i easily with the 200m fan installed infront and all the fans intake are covered with magnetic dust filters.

There are four HDD/SSD cages in the back that can hold two 3.5 inch drives and two 2.5 inch drives.


This sums my first impression about the case, i know its short and simple but i am welling to write more info when i start using the case but here is a nice video that will tell you most of the info you need to know abou the case


H100i:

The Corsair H100i is my first AIO water cooler and it really looks nice it came in a really good quality packaging which screamed quality the second i saw it, The tubes are thick and nice but are a hard to twist which will make installing the block a little hard if you already mounted it into the case, the fans that came with the H100i look a little flimsy which is not a problem as 90% of the users will change the fans.


AX860:

This is by far the best build quality i have ever seen in a product in my life its truly amazing how the second i opened the packaging i started ~Heavy breathing~ it was protected in two boxes plus hard foam plus a fabric bag to protect it from scratches!!! it came with a small bag that had all the cables and the screws you need and i cant wait to fire this baby up

SP120:

This two fans sure do look nice with the colored rings and it came in a nice packaging but its looked as flimsy as the stock H100i fans and i hope at least they perform a little better than those


MegaFlow 200:

This is one of the best 200mm fans i have ever owned had one in my old HAF912 and it performed very well so it will do the job perfectly



This is just a fast write up about what was in my mind about these products , Please ask any questions you need about these products and i will answer them

Cheers

The recent Obsidian line from Corsair has had terrible quality IMHO. They feel like they are made out of a tin can, especially when compared to Caselabs/Silverstone.
