    IS the corsair obsidian 800d a good chassis or not?

    I bought one second hand and the power button didn't work but I fixed it with some blutack then the feet came off so I put some screws in with nuts to hold them. Im starting to think it was a bad buy, is this case any good?

    If you think thats bad you should see the excuse of feet fitted to the 900D, stuck on with double sided tape!

    never lost a foot on my 800D so god knows what ragging about yours had with its past owners. It is well built.

    In what way? Hot swapping not working? To be fair I'm not sure if I have the drivers for it and currently do need to reboot for the drive to mount

    Never owned the 800d case but generally the corsair case's are pretty solid as I have done quite a few builds with them and never had a problem, but my favourite manufacturer has got to be cooler master as they make some kickass case's, Just watched the video for the master case 5 and I am tempted to buy it
