Corsair Obsidian 250D Club - Page 259

post #2581 of 3056
I'm going to exchange it for a different one at Microcenter. It just doesn't seem right that Rocket League is pushing the GPU to 80c. CPU is staying at a chilly 19c and case temps around 25c.
I has to be a card issue. Most people say these 970 twin frozr v rarely get above 75 under load.

Hey Guys,

Here is my first real attempt at cable management, and also my first mITX build. The 250d is a great little case, so much you can do with it, but damn it was a steep learning curve.

Let me know what you think smile.gif

The pictures were taken on my phone but I'm hoping to take proper photographs with better lighting sometime soon.

Holy smokes, that's great man! The lighting looks really nice and not overdone. What CPU cooler is that?
post #2584 of 3056
I am also curious what cooler that is. Also, are those custom cables? Great looking build!

I have a 250d build I am working on and am just deciding on which air cooling option to go with. I have a h100i in another case and find the high pitched whine a bit annoying, so will try air for this one.

Thanks! I was trying to create a minimalist feel for the case, I'm not really into flashy colours/brand logos everywhere. The cooler is a Noctua NH-U9S but I downgraded the default NF-A9 PWM fan (the ugly beige/brown ones) to the NF-B9 Redux 1600 PWM to match the look I was going for.

The Noctua NH-U9S is a great CPU cooler, very quite, barely audible, and my load temps are around 26°C - 37°C (depending on the room temp). It's one of a small bunch of Noctua coolers than actually fit into the 250d. I think the max clearance is 140mm and the U9S comes in at 125mm.

As for the cables, I got IceModz Custom PSU cables made for the EVGA 750w G2, custom length too in Titanium Grey, 35cm ATX 24pin, 55cm EPS 8pin, 35cm PCIE 6pin, and then custom sleeved 30cm Sata Cables/Molex/Sata Power cables as well. I also used ModGuru Sensei cable combs, which made everything look so much cleaner.

Thanks man, your case looks sweet too! I used 3mm Matte Black Acrylic for the midplate.

Does anyone know whether the Kraken X41 will fit in the front of this case? Thanks
post #2589 of 3056
Hey, I have question about GPU - MSI GTX 980 Ti G6 with Twin Frozer V and MSI GTX 980 Ti LIGHTNING edition - will both or one of these fit in this case? Thanks

Case supports 140rad in the front, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Looks like the gaming will fit fine, http://www.overclock.net/t/1466042/corsair-obsidian-250d-club/1790.. If the gaming edition fits, lightning should fit fine. It's a shorter card right?
