@your PM - Yea, just change the title to "Corsair Obsidian 800D Owners Club" and if enough people get in here and whatnot, I'll make it official.


That said, the interior is really nice looking and seems to be well thought out. A modder could have a good time with this case

There are 2 intake fans, one that actually IS in front of the PSU, a 140mm, that draws air from the bottom through a filtered vent shared with the PSU up into the motherboard area, and a 120mm fan that also draws air from the bottom through a separate chamber, though also through the same filtered vent, and blows fresh air directly over the 4 hot-swap drive bays, where it can flow out from behind the motherboard tray.

It is an impressive case. It has a lot of the right stuff.

But unfortunately for the price, I'd get a TJ-07.

This case is so nice!! Very nice cable management system they got going on there and the server-style hotswap HDD bays are $$$ in the bank.

If I were to get this, it would definitely be without a side panel. A sheet-metal shop near me works wonders with their water-jet machine so if I wanted a window I'd get them to cut it out for me.

But honestly I would be looking at a LiLi or a TJ07 as well for that kinda cash.

personally I went w/ this case over the Tj07

honestly, I wanted something different, not to say I'm a Corsair fanboy, but I've had 3 of their PSU's and have been completely impressed w/ the hardware and CS

Also, I'm not going to watercool until way later on the future and from what I have read...the TJ07 is not that good on air (again just my opinion and I actually think the TJ07 is mighty sexy)

Agreed, other better choices in my opinion are the Silverstone TJ07 and the Cooler Master ATCS 840. The Obsidian 800D should cost around $150, and even then I'd take the HAF 932 over it.
