    Nice Rig, is it overclocked? If so, what are you running the i7 920 at?

    Wow, love that case. Love the rubber grommets for cable management. Big full tower case.

    Olle, pero que la vaina, yo soy un tigre dominicano LOL.


    Question. Where are the intake fans placed on this case? I know there is one on the side to blow across the hot swappable HDD cage. But where is the intake for the fans that cool the motherboard area???

    Wouldn't that be extracting air from the PSU area, how does the PSU get cooled? I'm just trying to understand this :laugh:

    Doesn't it pull the air from the PSU compartment?

    PSU you have the fan facing downwards and it pulls air straight from outside (bottom) of the case expelling the hot air out the back. That way it is pretty much isolated from the fan intake in the middle that gives cold air to the mobo area. :)

    If I were you i'd o/c the 920 to around 4Ghz. Im running the i7 920 with the 120 true black cooler also on a p6t-deluxe and i run it at 3.9 Ghz, and its a ton faster

    I asked on one of the other obsidian rig threads but i'll ask here too. What goes in the space under the hot-swap HD area? is there room for more non hot swap HD's?

    Just a tip to try....

    I found the Obsidian actually gets better CPU temps with the fans at the top blowing in not out. I had mine as you do, and I dropped case ambients and CPU temps by swapping them to blow inward;)

    On topic, sweet rig! Yes the space is for solidly mounting 3.5" drives.

    thanks Patty and Peet. I'd do so with the button but i guess you can't do that in the case gallery forums.
