I ordered both the other night when I had a few too many, tho now I think I am going to have to send them both back cause I have buyers remorse :cry:

Not because I dont like/want them but how the hell can i justify buying them, I should have enough money to get through the month but even still :ohwell:

Oh well at least I will get to look at them before I send them back :cry: :respect:

I'd recommend keeping them.

:D

Why not sell your previous case and monitor to recoup some of your 'loss'.

Or, sell the obsidian on to me? :)

Seriously though, try and sell some other older stuff to regather funds, I wouldnt be able to send back such a case and monitor myself, id be running after the CityLink truck crying.

To be honest, I'd say return that case.

Its over kill, only good for E-peen.

I mean it does have epic cable management and so much space its easy to work inside, but most of us techy types can work around the limitations of lesser cases.

Maybe return it and get a case for 100 instead? can still get pretty amazing ones.

no point getting a £100 case I have my CM Storm so if anything I should keep this or go for E-peen, I will see what other goodies I could sell aswell as my case and see if I cant turn the obsidian into a £100 case, now that seems more like it =D lol

I'd keep the Obsidian if I were drunk enough to purchase it, then again I'd keep the monitor as well.

I suppose it must of been an impressive level of drunkenness, thinking about it that way it seem it would be a shame to waste such epic levels of drunken decision making!

I will say this...as soon as you see the Obsidian in person, it will never leave your house, unless its just too big. I love mine and its been a couple months now, i'm still finding new reasons to love mine more as time goes on.

I say if you can afford it, I can't see either leaving after seeing them:)

Well most drunkenness I do very well :toast: Tho vodka drunkenness lol thats a different story. Well I might still return it yet, I am undecided so far, I have to look at it when I go home and hope what sneeky says isnt right lol

And affording it and being able to afford it are 2 different things, tho I dont think I would have my pc at all if I had to be able to afford it, tho I could afford it if that makes sense lol :laugh:

If you can afford to get drunk by vodka, you can afford an Obsidian case, period. :nutkick:

I find most monitors come with the brightness set to high.

Luckily very easy to fix :D
