It is a great watercooling case. I modded mine and have a 480 in the roof and 240 in the bottom chamber. I could have probably fit a 360 down there now that I look at it. CPU never gets over 65C and GPUs never go over 45C with ambient around 21C

also,edit your previous posts instead of making news one to avoid the triple posts

I turned my rear fan around to be intake and added a 120mm intake fan in the middle three 5.25" bays. Adding another intake fan in front of the PSU as intake, along with the 140mm midpanel fan blowing into the main chamber, could also help too. Then have the three 120mm on the roof as exhaust. That should provide decent airflow. I was only on air for a short time before I could gather all my watercooling gear. I was had a minor overclock at the time, only had the stock cpu cooler, and never had any problems with high temps.

I'm running air cooled with exactly the set up you just described. Rear 120mm as intake, top 3 as exhaust Added 120mm to bottom in front of PSU and added 120mm to lower drive cage. Prior to this I was n't impressed with the ambient case temps. After the change I saw a noticeable drop in temperatures.

I replaced all the 140mm Corsair fans with Prolimatech Pro-BV14 fans and added Prolimatech Pro-BV12's as the rear and bottom intakes. Top and lower drive cage fans are Coolermasters, but I'll replace them with Prolimatech fans when they die. It seems that the Coolermaster do not like being suspended like that.

Hello guys, new here and I wanted to ask the owners of Corsair Obsidian 550D if there is a solution for a superficial scratch on the front of the case's platic with the glossy piano finish. Don't know how I got to scratch it, can be barely be seen, it is somehow middle de-colored, but it makes me nuts.
And to be on-topic, below are some pics with my system-no gpu thou, my 6850 toxic edition died just when I've put it in the new system.
