Corsair Obsidian 250D Club - Page 57

post #561 of 3056
Finally get to join the club. My implementation is not in the slightest as spacious as some others above me.

Specs:
  • EVGA GTX 780 Classified (YES I did fit it in)
  • ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe/WD mobo w/ dual band wireless and Bluetooth
  • i7-3770K @ 4.3GHz (not too venturous yet)
  • Corsair H100i AIO cooler
  • Kingston HyperX 16GB @1600
  • OCZ Vertex 3 120GB SSD boot disk
  • Western Digital Black 1TB
  • Seagate Barracuda 2TB
  • Thermaltake SMART m850w PSU
  • ASUS Blu-ray/DVD-RW optical drive


I was able to get the 780 Classified in with the help of "low low" profile PCIe connectors supplied and made by Antron Technologies (Dr. Hung is a really nice guy and made these extensions cheap and quick)

Nota Bene: with the P8Z77-I, you must orientate the H100i block (the reference frame here is the logo) perpendicular to the front of the case. Other wise, there are four capacitors that are slightly higher than the IHS of the CPU chip only giving you about half-contact. ALSO: the tubes coming out of the radiator must be in the fore section of the case, as the daughterboard of the P8Z77-I has sharp metal thingies that would like to cut up your tubes. I have since rotated my waterblock 90 degrees and flipped my radiator around.

'Tis a thing of beauty.
it FITSSS
The cut-down PCI cables I was talking about
the 'low low' profile :D
The bad orientation of both block and rad. DO NOT IMITATE.
Here's me drives.

My question: Has anyone with the P8Z77-I or any other board had a problem with the HDD LED, as in it does not light up at all?

I did. I am ashamed to admit that I had both HDD and Power LEDs not work - because I had the positive and negative on wrong. Turned them around and they worked just fine.

Much appreciated. I have no idea why I didn't try that yet. Funny thing is that the leads for the front panel connections all had the lettering on the side of the connector match up with the leads that came with my mobo. The HDD light is the only one to not have the words (on one side of the connectors only) match up.

Hi Guys,

Haven't read all the thread will definetly do!

I want to build a mini ITX with the Obsidian 250D and wanted a few info since you already have one...

- will a 200mm fan 25mm thick fit in the case?
- will the MSI R9 290 gaming fit in the case? (If not which other r9 290 will fit? And regarding gtx 780?

Thanks in advance!!!

I had that same motherboard and my HDD LED never worked and I never really noticed or cared/bothered to fix it.

UPDATE to everyone here. I have gutted my system and have sold my case and motherboard to someone yesterday (maybe he'll pop in here soon) So I guess I'm no longer officially part of this club frown.gif

It was sweet but short lived. I'm also leaving the PC and gaming realm. The rest of my parts are being sold too. It's been great everybody. I'm still going to hang around to provide any help and to gawk at the beautiful builds that get posted here.

So I "can be a healthy adult and explore my other interests"

Which is stupid but hey I'm hoping to get enough money to get myself and or my girlfriend a bike to get around Oakland better. It sucks because me building computers helped me land my job but whatever. It's all good. I can always come back in the future but I don't think my girlfriend would agree. This PC was my last real personal possession too :/

You have actually sold your soul, my friend. /sarcasm Good luck to you.

1. In the front, yes, although you may have limited choices for a side radiator.
2. All them'll fit. I fit the behemoth of a GTX 780 Classified in mine.

CAVEAT: you may have a problem with the combination of the two depending on where the edge of the fan is. The length of that card(276mm) plus the 25mm fan depth is greater than the total length of the inside of the case. IMO, the AF140 fan that comes with the case provides ample enough airflow. Plus, its pretty dam quiet.
