Corsair Obsidian 250D + AMD A10-7850K Build Log

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well as soon as the new Kaveri chips were released and overclocked results were published I decided to buy one. I was looking to build something for media and gaming in the living room. I first thought about a steam box like case but then I knew I rather sacrifice space for a bigger case that provide more options. Then I saw the 250D and it caught my, and I have a soft spot for Corsair cases since I love building in them and their mother board trays. So without waiting anymore, bellow is a list of my parts (all new except DVD Player) and some pics of the build:

  • AMD A10-7850K APU
  • Gigabyte F2A88XN-WIFI motherboard
  • DDR3 8GB PC 2400 CL11 G.SKILL KIT 2X4GB 8GAB ARES
  • Corsair CX Series 750 Watt ATX/EPS Modular
  • Kingston Digital 120GB SSD V300
  • Corsair Hydro Series High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H60
  • Old DVD player I had
  • Segate 1.5TB Hard Drive

Some pics of the case partially assembled:

Here are some of the 250D with my main case the Corsair Air 540:

And here are some pics with the case next to my tv still got to decide on where to put the case and TV:

The only things left to buy is a dGPU for dual graphics either the R7 240 or 250 and perhaps a blu ray player. I might also switch out the H60 in favor of the H100 since I had to mount the H60 on the front which wasn't my original plan. So there you have it guys, so far I love the case its very well made and easy to work with for its size. I could easily see the 250D being someone's main case.

Why dont you mount the H60 on the side next to the other fan? THat way you can mount a larger fan on the front.

This looks really good. Always wanted to try my hand on a small form factor build, but with 3 modern pcs in the house already and my investments in my rig, I could never convince the girlfriend to let me do it. And she's in charge of all the money =P
