To read this review go to: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Corsair/Obsidian_800D/
expensive but one of the best cases around at the moment
i bet all polished up it looks amazing
great review again
I want them to release a smaller one, maybe without the removable HDD feature. Same dimensions as the Antec 300 would be ideal!
Damn you TPU, why review now, I just sent one back this week lol, now I will have to read this thinking, I had that and let it go.
Well you know the saying, If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was.
Hmmm watch this space ??
P.S. Case is monstrousley huge!!!!
why'd you get rid of it? i think its awesome
and IC yeah i agree they need to make a mid tower version, the full tower is just a bit big for some folk and also yes it is no way a lan case its to big and pretty
its just too damn big and would look ridiculous in my setup, tho a mid tower would be teh sex
yeah man as i said it is a bit big for most people a mid tower would be a lian li beater
looking for a mid tower case myself
the case makes the motherboard look tiny ROFL
looks very ROOMY
+1 to a midtower version.
I would love for this case to have stealthed optical drives. I think the not-pure-black DVD drives in the front kinda kills the look. Otherwise, this is pretty sweet.
I Want this and want to sell my truck for it. HA HA! I love my HAF as it does a few things better than this one. For one, its locking slides for ODDs, etc is really good. Also, I think the Airflow is a bit better with the bigger fans and a bit quieter too boot, even though you can put a rad up top as well. One thing I like about the obsidian 800d is that you can freely leave the cables behind the mobo tray with no problems. I love my HAF but I need more room behind the mobo tray.
Love the review DS, best one yet.
Gread review. I'm buying one of these cases within the week
Sorry, there was a slight misunderstanding in the review. The front of the case is aluminum, the chassis is steel. Due to the paint job it is really hard to tell them apart, and the chassis is fairly light considering the materials used.
I have to agree with another review's view that this case is near the best available high end commercial case available without steping into the eliet/custom section(ie ABS or Mountain Mods).
I love mine
It look UBER sexy with a WC'ing loop too. Black FTW! They did A nice job on the side panel design too. Great review.
been drooling over this case for a while now, i have a house to shingle soon before winter comes maybe i can get me one.
Wow! Nice case. I prefer big cases. This might my first non Lian Li case.
I would like to see temperature comparison, since I think the cooling is very weak. only 1 intake fan an in the bottom
It's an amazing case, I'd love to have it but it's too big, I hope they make a smaller version.
Not liking cases because of size is like not liking .... ok could think of an example.... thats just crazy. Size FTW
Like not liking a V8 cos its a 7 liter not a 5 liter?
+1 Size FTW, no smaller 800D
That's because they know that whoever walked off with something from this would be leaving with the whole case!
The thing's ginormous; not exactly built for Lan Parties. Ah well.
Nooffense intended here, but why take an amazing case that is super simple to use, work in, and hide stuff, and squash it all down. Most of the features would be too packed in to make the case a pleasure to have. Using one longterm wil show you what I mean, it's just something you can't get from the pics.
Also I agree with Don here....
a) if I took mine to a LAN first guy to touch it looses a hand, I'm sure that should discourage the rest.
b) I wouldnt want to carry mine even to the car. I built this on the first floor and had to run it up a flight of steps. That's enough moving for me
c) did I mention people loosing body parts
imo, this is the finest case ever made. one day she will be mine, oh yes, she will be mine...
you're not worthy
