I have some information that I think some of you will enjoy:

I had an Obsidian. I liked what it had to offer but I have somewhat high ambients even in the winter and I read everywhere (even OCN) about how the air-cooling performance was lackluster. I sold mine to another member and went over the ATCS 840 which has a lot of the same features but supposedly better air-cooling capabilities.

The Obsidian was configured as follows:

Rear Fan: stock but flipped to intake
Lower Fan: stock
Roof Fans: x3 Sycthe SlipStream 1200RPM
CPU Fan: Generic 2000RPM/88CFM

The 840 is configured:

Rear Fan: Generic 2000RPM/88CFM
Roof Fans: x2 Scythe Ultra Kaze 2000RPM
CPU Fan: Scythe Ultra Kaze 2000RPM
Front Fan: Stock 230mm
HDD Cage Fans: x2 Scythe SlipStream 1200RPM

Prime95 Small FFT Sustained Load Temps (hottest core):

Obsidian: 69*C
ATCS 840: 73*C

GPU idles and loads are approx 5*C warmer as well in the 840. This is with the fan resting at its 40% idle.

So there you have it. The ATCS even with a considerable amount of additional fan power is beaten by the Corsair in an air-cooling only test. And before anyone calls BS/fanboy on me please glance down at the current specs for my sig rig.

EDIT: For those wondering why I didn't do the same rear intake setup on the 840 to better level the playing field, I did. The temperatures were best when configured as I listed above. While you can technically shoehorn a 38mm fan between the Mega and the rear case fan, it seems that it would be less than ideal.

Just received mine in the mail, I simply cannot believe how big it is. Pictures do no justice for this beauty. It makes my CM690 look like a runt. Will post up pics as soon as I can find a camera and get my build started.

Yes it will fit. There may be an inch or even an inch and a half of clearance.
