Your setup looks like the one I am aiming for. But does the connector works with the new screen straight away ?
Yes it works right away without any setting up.

I believe my monitor is the exact same as the Thunderbolt, except I can't daisy chain.

My current build sits inside a CM Elite 130 which is a great case for the money, but things are a little too cramped for my taste and since the PSU sits right atop the CPU socket I can't utilize the 2nd fan for my Noctua cooler.

Parts currently installed inside Elite 130:

Asus Maximus VI Impact
i7 4771K
Noctua NH-L12 low profile cooler
2x8GB Crucial Ballistix 1600Mhz
512gb Samsung 840 Pro SSD (for games)
128gb Adata SP900 SSD (OS drive)
2tb WD Green HDD (for data)
GTX 780 Ti reference (Palit)
HX1000 PSU (yes, it fits inside the Elite 130!)


Funny thing is, I initially started this build as an HTPC project but somewhere along the way I decided to turn it into my main rig. Love the mini-ITX form factor!

Question: where can I find these 5,25" adapters that allow for a slim optical drive + USB card reader?

When you out together your system into the case, would you be able to take a picture showing the clearance of the Crucial ram and the drive bay caddy? I wanted to get the Crucial ram with tall heat spreaders..

Has anyone tried to install the NZXT G10 Kraken into this case?

so after reading this i was wondering if this plan would work well. I plan on not having 80mm fans and using the side intake and front intake to create positive pressure. now it seems unfortunately that an h105 wont fit so id use an h100i on the side as intake and would i be able to fit a 200mm in the front as well? im also looking to either use an asus 770 or asus 280x but i have seen a lot of issues with the asus card hitting the window. i want to replace my main rig with this build so i want it to pack a punch and be really cool and stable. still deciding on the mobo though.

Hey everyone just got the case and finished a build log http://www.overclock.net/t/1468198/corsair-obsidian-250d-amd-a10-7850k-build-log. I decided to go with AMD's A10-7850K APU for the build. I find them both a great match for media and light gaming in my living room. Here's one pic: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'd be careful what motherboard you choose. My motherboard had a large daughter board for the VRM and it was in the way of routing the hoses toward the back of the case. If you have to put the radiator with the hoses toward the front then a 200mm fan will not fit up there. If they are in the back, you shouldn't have a problem.

i was gunna go with an asus mobo, most likely the impact. ive seen it in oc3d youtube review with the h100i and the hoses fit towards the back in between the daughterboard and the io, so i was just wondering if the 200mm would still fit up front and from what im reading it sounds like it fits ok with the h100i as long its fitted hoses back. anyone have some good pics with a 200mm and an h100i?
