The first method is a questionable one. Hot air rises inside a case. I think it will actually peform worse than leaving the rear and 3 top fans as exhaust. However, if you find that it works well, I'll make the switch as well

If you're taking the second route, one of those Scythe Kama Bay fans is an easier route. Link Unfortunately, you're blowing air around the NB/CPU area and not directly on the video card, but no dremeling is required.

I ended up moving my graphics card to the top slot so I can get more air from the zip-tie fan blow across it. It is a bit better now idling at 52C @ 25% fan speed.

I ended up switching the rear exhaust into a rear intake. CPU and NB temps dropped, but no change to GPU.
I would get some slot covers with holes or slots to help vent the air off the card out.

Not a bad idea. I'll try removing one or two slot covers to see if it helps with temps, and then invest in slotted brackets if it helps.

For problems you guys should register at Hardforum and PM Redbeard. Alternatively, I think his email is posted in the Corsair 800D thread there. Many have had success getting him to fix problems with the case.

im getting this case and im moding it to hold a Cooler Master 200 x 230 x 30mm Fan w/ Red LED on the window. its going to be nice
post #118 of 8668
my turn to join the club but I'm gonn wait for pics since you probobly don't want iphone quality

As to the airflow of this case, it isn't good at all. With my TRUE Black in push/pull though the fans on it are terrible I idle at 44,46,48,40. GPU gets very toasty under load, with furmark temp gets to 85 with 90s in mem temps on card. Now as soon as I pop off the side panel GPU temps drop to 75 and the CPU hits high 30s at 3.8 btw. I plan on adding a front 3x5.25 intake as well as replacing all stock fans and adding 3 top exhausts. Temps should be nice and cool

Thinking of selling my Cosmos S and getting one of these, Just a quick question though.

How much gp is there between the motherboard mounting panel and the side panel itself?

On my Cosmos S I have 15mm of space to squeese and run my cables, how much spac is there on the Obsidian?

There is right at 3/4" of space between the mb tray and side panel. Fits my ridiculous amount of cabling from my PCP&C 910watt though, first case to be able to do that. Without a clutter fest and a fight that is.

I must say I was kinda weary about grabbing this case but it was well worth it in the end.

As has been said, tons of room, wires practically manage themselves. Only draw back is it does not have the best of airflow due to only one intake. But my temps didn't raise too much.

Was scarred to death when I saw the box from UPS though, then just pissed.

But it was ok and no damage

Here some pics are.
