    Re: Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis talkthrough

    ..just sold my 800D as it was too big...now using a BitFenix Prodigy, looks like a pretty phat case but I'm not sure I'll be rushing out to buy it!

    Re: Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis talkthrough

    I needed a HTPX chassis. The 800D couldn't handle it. Had the 900D been out at the time I would have taken a serious look. It looks really well thought through and well executed. Got the Lian Li PC-90 because it's light and small on the outside, so I could fit it under my desk, and it wouldn't look the monster it is with dual Xeons and 3x580s. I decided to run the water cooling to an external radiator to get the heat out of the chassis more effectively. Two things I miss which the 900D has: space for 2 PSUs and all the cable routing behind the motherboard.

    I guess we'd be able to live in the 1000D.

    Re: Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis talkthrough

    What was your impression of the noise given the setup in that example? I'm always on the lookout for decent cooling that can remain really quiet, like the original P180 (except for the decent cooling part!!). My Lian Li is too noisy, even with good fans on low speed.

    Re: Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis talkthrough

    Its the 650D but turned into a full tower and added the bottom of the Silverstone TJ07

    Basically the perfect full tower case - hate to see the price though.

    £250-£300ish since its only due to be $50 more than the 800d IIRC, and how we always end up getting killed on the exchange rate.

    Staying next to that dude and using the words "gigantic" and "ridiculously big" made me giggle... :-) Even he had to laugh.

    I thought most people were getting smaller cases nowerdays, suprises me that there is still such a big market for insanely big cases.
