Great. Pulled the trigger on the case.

I'm a little sad I couldn't find a cool case that would blend more would the home theater and fit into the entertainment center, but fortunately this case is small enough that I think I could easily tuck it behind one of my bookshelf speaker stands and make it work. The other cases really seem to sacrifice too much in terms of cooling and gaming capability. This case appears to strike a very mean balance between the two.

But who knows. It's a pretty big case for ITX. Maybe that will turn me off once I start seeing it in person.

Have had a 250D build for a while now but I'm in process of building my first loop. Some progress:

So I had a spare G1 Gaming 980Ti that was laying around since I replaced my main build with EVGA Hybrids.

I've been wanting to build a Mini-ATX build for a while. I'm going to try to cram the G1 and an H100i in that 250d. I saw a guy who was able to fit the G1 in some reviews on Amazon. The card is huge.

All parts currently in the mail.

Specs:
Case: Corsair 250D
CPU: i7 6700K
Cooler: Corsair H100i
Mobo: Gigabyte LGA1151 Intel Z170 Mini-ITX DDR4 GA-Z170N-Gaming 5
Mem: 2 x 8GB Kingston Hyper Fury X 2666
PSU: EVGA SuperNova 850 Gold with Black individually sleeved cables (I know 850 is overkill, but had that as a spare part as well already)
GPU: Gigabyte G1 Gaming 980 Ti
OS/Programs Drive: M.2 NVMe Samsung 950 Pro 512 GB
Storage Drive: Samsung 850 Evo 1TB


Wish me luck haha, I can already foresee problems and I don't even have the parts yet. Getting the butterflies in the stomach already can't wait.

I got the GTX 970 G1 (same length) and it is quite the hassle to get it in the case as I have to remove ram sticks and twist it, but it is doable.

My Corsair Obsidian 250D Rig:

CPU: Intel Core i7 6700 3,4GHz
SSD/OS: Samsung 850 EVO Series 500GB
STORAGE: 1x 3TB HDD
COOLING: Corsair H100i GTX, 1x 140mm + 2x80mm
RIG: Corsair Obsidian 250D
MAINBOARD: Gigabyte GA-H170N-WIFI
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX970 GAMING
MEMORY: Crucial Ballistix 16GB DDR4 2x8 2400MH


Some pictures of the rig, i have done my best regards to cable management but some cables are so long and i dont want to take the journey to shorten the cables that are possible to shorten.[IMG

So i have just shoved the excess cable into the tray where the HDD/SSD is going.

I did not want to mount DVD-rom in this since it destroyed the clean outside look of this. I have a external USB DVD-rom if i need to use. But all is digital now so not much need for an internal one.

Interested to know if you had to make any mods or changes to get the Noctua to fit? This is the exact case/cooler combo I was going to go for but the Cosair site says max cooler height is 95mm in the 250D. Why would they limit the specs of their own case when it appears from the photos to fit a 125mm heaksink quite nicely?

Fits fine, I think the max clearance is 135mm/140mm from what I remember. I didn't need to make any modifications or adjustments to fit it inside the 250D.

So my 250D is almost finished. And it's quite the doozy. With the H220 X2, it fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. When it comes to switching out the fans on the H22, I'm going to have to take everything apart to make that happen. I haven't attempted any wire management yet, but fitting the 200m fan so far is looking like an extremely close call. Before wiring up the PSU it was already barely fitting in. My SSD comes in the mail today so I'll see if I can throw it together and squeeze in the fan. My case already feels so packed it's comical. It doesn't help that I'm reusing an old ATI 5850 where the VGA plugs are at the end of the card instead of the side. Ugh tongue.gif
