Corsair Obsidian 250D Club - Page 80

post #791 of 3057
140mm will work fine. I do 100% intake on all fans and it works great. Temps OK, no dust in the case at all. For the first month of use I had the 100i and air-cooled the video card...all fans were intake. I tiny flag on the back side of the case (the 80mm exhaust area's) always showed the box to have positive pressure. Yesterday I installed a BlackIce 140mm rad in front (Noctua pulling air through) and will use XSPC Titan/780/780i GPU block coupled w/Koolance RP-401X2 (w/just one pump) to cool the GPU (pressure fittings, tubing, and speed controller show up today). After placing all the major components in the case I couldn't close the bay drive caddy...the slots were too close to the top of the rad...so i bent the tabs on the case used to lock-in the bay drive caddy and no worse the wear. Looks like I can run tubing without too much problem other than the rats nest of wires getting in the way. After I finish it up I'll post some pics and performance data.

Seems like right now I can only get my hands on two motherboards.

EVGA stinger and MSI z77ia-e53

Which would you choose if you had to?

Plan to use h100i and my evga 770

In any given case, a positive pressure (more intake than outtake) benefits cleanliness if intakes are filtered. Less dust is attracted from the non-filtered openings of your case.
A negative pressure (more outtake than intake) benefits temps. The less time hot air stays inside the case, the lower are your temps.

Even though I've preferred positive on most of my previous full tower builds, went with negative on the 250D because of it's small size and lack of openings (solid top panel, no pci slots other than the two that are already used by the gpu, etc)

I just felt it made sense, I'm not arguing that your setup is wrong and mine right.

Guys, do you know how tall the daughter board is from the PCB of the Asus Maximus Impact motherboard?

The White one looks to be real. Corsair mentioned that the one used in this video was a prototype.

Starting with a prototype sample of the white 250D chassis I removed most of the internal structure including the front intake filter...

Perhaps soon it will be available for purchase. thumb.gif

Yes in this case it does not really matter, i just wanted the air flowing through my rad be as cool as possible thats why i went for intake. Kinda depends on what kind gpu is being used too, some just blow hot air around in the case, some blow it out. But the great thing of this small case is thats it all fine smile.gif

Decided to register since I am going to buy this case as well as the Maximus VI Impact. Much easier to go with a red and black theme than the yellow/gold and black them with the Asus Z87I-Deluxe.

What I plan on buying between now and 2015:
Corsair Obsidian 250D
Asus Maximus VI Impact
Intel Core i5 4670K 3.4GHz
Corsair Hydro series i100
eVGA Superclocked GTX760 2GB w/ACX cooler
G.Skill Ripjaws X series 8GB DDR3 2133
Western Digital Black 1TB WD1003FZEX (OS)
Western Digital Black 2TB WD2003FZEX (Storage)
Asus Black Blu-ray drive (also a DVD/CD multi writer)

I currently have a Corsair HX650W PSU, and plan on getting Corsair's red sleeved cables. The flat cables tend to be stiffer and more difficult to work with. Later on, I plan on upgrading to the Corsair AX760i PSU. Also, I later plan on upgrading to a Intel Core i7 4770K and CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB DDR3 2133 or its equivalent when DDR4 RAM comes out (along with appropriate DDR4 motherboard from Asus). My next planned upgrade after this one, should be around 2016/17. I do want to get a 1TB SSD from Samsung to eventually replace the 1TB Seagate.

I also currently have a eVGA Superclocked GTX560 1GB video card. A Intel Celeron G1610 2.6GHz dual core, 4GB of G.Skill DDR3 1600 (Can only run at 1333 with the Celeron), and a 320GB Sata II Western Digital that is 4 years old (for the OS), and a Seagate SATA II 500GB drive that is 5 years old (for storage). The thing is, I didn't realize the Celeron would be so slow with just 4GB of RAM, as I switched from an AMD system (AMD for 13 years), a Asus M4A88TD EVO USB3 and AMD Athlon II X2 260 (using the same 4GB I am using now).

Basically, the current system is a budget build switch to Intel, because they currently have superior CPU's, and the concern of AMD possibly going out of business in the future.

AMD going out of business in the future is an impossibility. It has lots of money & it's going to make some more from Microsoft, Sony & Nintendo of which current gen console graphic chips are made by AMD. Though also highly unlikely, Nvidia has a bigger chance of going out of business than AMD if you're going to compare the two.

I got a good, solid, 3 minute long laugh out of this. lmaosmiley.gif
