Damn Oliver!! That puts my mind at ease! I ordered the Big Boy a few hours ago due to it having a thinner frame. (Don't want to have problems with the fan hitting the GPU's).

I will post pics of the build once I get the parts.

So far I have the following ordered...

2 x Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm 1850 RPM (To fit to the H50 for push / pull config)
1 x Corsair H50 v2 cooler
1 x Big Boy 200mm fan for the side panel mod (Dremel all charged and ready ;-) )
2 x Enermax Cluster 120mm fans to replace the 140mm Corsair fans
1 x fan controller to control 8 fans

This will surely drop my 42 idle temps!!!

+ Rep Oliver

What temps are you getting on your case? I gather your CPU is overclocked?

Well, I now have some of the parts I need to get moving on with modding the side panel.

I got some nice mesh to replace the window panel. I just need to spray it matt black to match.

But for now, I have managed to remove the window. (2 of the nuts holding it were reccessed into the plastic, so a bit of fine drilling around the nut was required so I could get the plairs in to romove it).

The next step, now that I have measured and taped the mesh to size, is to cut it. (Dremel at the ready)!!

I will post pics later if anyone is interested.

Looking forward to seeing those pics. I'm getting ready to mod too

Is there a specific size of 120mm fans that the Corsair Obsidian can take. Can it handle the 38mm Ultra Kaze's in the top as exhaust and in the bottom near the psu ?

Would it also be possible to mount 2 Scythe Ultra Kaze's with a Corsair H50 Push/Pull configuration ?

Add me I just got mine yesterday. I had to get a hole new desk, because this thing is huge. Luckily Staples had a desk that would fit it and was also on clearance for only 35 bucks. I did some very simple but effective mods to the case. I took off the rear 140mm fan and put some Velcro on it and through it in the in the front drive bays. I set that up for fresh air intake. I removed 3 drive bay covers and add a piece of A.C. RYAN Meshx. So far a great case, by far the best I ever had.

Nice work Pings!!

Very simple yet effective! Whats your temps on that?

I am nearly finished my mods, my order arrives today so hopefully everything should do completed by tomorrow.

The side panel has been my main issue, but once I get my 200mm Big Boy Antec fan, I can get measuring.

I have a mesh side panel nearly ready to go, but I am toying with the idea of cutting the Corsair PVC window to fit the fan straight into it.

With a bit of careful cutting, it should look great!

As the 200mm fan will be an intake, I am considering having my H50 push / pull config set an an exhaust. I will need to do a few tests though.


to 45nm, those 38mm fans should fit ok.

The lowest I've seen in this case was 25°C, and that was because the window was open and it got cold in my room. I idle around 28°C and I get around 54°C at full load. This is the second case where I put a fan for air intake in the drive bays. So it was the same temp in my last case, as long as there is a fan set up for air intake. I think you should get some good temps with a 200mm fan intake in the Corsair side panel window or modded mess. If you're gona use a windows. What you should do is go down to your local hardware store and find some Plexiglass or acrylic panels, and a use that for your mod. That way if you mess up you will always have the original.
