The Obsidian Series 700D is a brilliant combination of appearance, quality and inside performance. Built with simplicity and steel structure to last through years of motherboard, power, memory, cooling, and component upgrades, the 700D has a matte black coating both inside and out and is finished with a brushed aluminum faceplate for a professional look that’s both serious and awe-inspiring.

Inside the case, dedicated thermal zones for power supply, main compartment and the SATA bays prevent heat buildup. Three preinstalled 140mm fans and the ability to add four more fans dissipate heat through the smart air duct to achieve superior cooling performance. The 700D is equipped with six HDD / SSD drive bays that accommodate both 3.5” and 2.5” drives with no adapter needed. A unique cable routing system virtually eliminates cable clutter that can impede airflow. The tool-free design allows for easy entry, easy access, and quick installation of 5.25” drives.

  • newegg Supreme Expandability and Flexibility The Corsair Obsidian Series 700D boasts six HDD / SSD drive bays with clever snap-in trays for installing either 3.5” or 2.5” drives, and five 5.25’’ drive bays with tool-free design for easy entry, access and installation of optical drive.
  • newegg Three Isolated Cooling Zones The power supply, main compartment and HDD reside in three isolated cooling zones and each has dedicated cooling subsystem to prevent heat buildup. The drive bays are cooled by a separate 140mm fan which vents from the case via a sealed chamber and prevents the heat generated by the drives from entering the main compartment. The power supply compartment has its own dedicated intake and exhaust, also isolated from the main compartment.
  • newegg Three 140mm Preinstalled Fans and Additional Radiators/Fan Positions A dust-filtered 140mm fan draws in cold air at the bottom of the case and exhausts it at the rear and top. This clever design forces fresh air directly over the graphics card and CPU. The Corsair Obsidian Series 700D also has pre-drilled support for top-mounted single, dual, and triple radiators, or up to three additional 120mm fans for building custom system.
  • newegg Clutter-Free Installation With the Unique cable routing hole design, keep all your cables in the back of the motherboard to guarantee a clean and clutter-free installation.
  • newegg Removable CPU Backplate Panel The removable CPU backplate panel design allows easy heatsink installation and removal.
  • newegg Convenient Front I/O Panel The convenient front I/O panel offers easy access to four USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire port and two audio ports.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Price to performance ratio. GUI is really comprehensive and easy to set up or OC.

Cons: Legacy audio connector isn't detecting my mic or headset on the front ports of my case. The drivers are up to date but there's no change. Not sure if its a board or driver issue.

Other Thoughts: My first ASUS, no regrets.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes good

Pros: Great driver support. I'm seeing much more consistent frame rates compared to the 7950 it replaced. Cooling is effective, haven't gone over 60c during heavier games like planetside 2

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: 3d vision doesn't support my interleaved ASUS 3D monitor. Was one of the main reasons I went with nvidia, so I'm rather disappointed that I had to override the EDID of my monitor to get it to work. Greed is killing 3D yet again.

5 out of 5 eggsSWEET, MY RECLINER IS HERE!!!

Pros: I know.. it says 'full size case' so I should have been ready for the size.. but I think the UPS guy got a hernia putting it on my porch.
Out of the box: beautiful case. solid. very attractive, almost like a monument. it feels like a professional case would, with no hint of plastic or breakable cheapness. I saw a case at a box store the other day that looked like a half-unfolded transformer.. trying to be some sort of cool and hip spectacle. That really isn't for me. This case, however, just speaks with simplistic beauty and permanence. Cable and patch management is robust and full of options. Side panels come off (and re-attach) as easily as they should. PLENTY of room for expansion.

Cons: wanted to deduct one egg due to the fact that Corsair just released a new USB 3 front panel replacement a week after I bought the case. Kinda stinks, but not enough to warrant any dissatisfaction with this wonderful sarcophagus.

Other Thoughts: The rebate helped ($50) and a sale price sealed the deal. I completely recommend the case to anyone needing space, durability and reliability. Just beware of the size. Seeing the dimensions and doing the ol' 'hands apart yea big' measurements don't cut it. Make sure you have room, and cut a piece or two of cardboard to actually represent the height and depth. But I had plenty of space, (as Madonna said) so I've made up my mind, I'm keepin' my baby.

5 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: Best built case I've owned. Feels like it was carved out of a solid block of granite. Just don't drop it on any toes.. or small animals.

Cons: Only space (unless you start drilling holes for new fan mounts) for the single intake fan at the bottom of the case. With space for 4 exhaust (3 top, 1 rear), it seems a little lopsided.

Please note, this is very minor, but after talking with several other 800/700D owners it seemed to be a reoccurring comment. I don't have some crazy enthusiast build, and have never ran into any problems keeping it cool.. and neither has anyone I've talked to.

Other Thoughts: Don't make the mistake I did and glaze over the case's dimensions. Although I love it, this thing is BIG. When I first picked it up at the post office, I literally couldn't fit the box it shipped in my car. I had to drive home slowly with the box hanging partway out of my open trunk.

Pros: Excellent case, perfectly designed and lots of room. Everything is exactly where it should be with no extra junk.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case with Caveats

Pros: Well built case with clean lines and excellent cable management. One-button pop-off side panels make setup and maintenance super easy.

Cons: Cons I found were either easily fixed or due to my own personal preference, so I can't really take eggs off. Nevertheless, here goes:

1 - Bottom-mounted power supply meant that the 8-pin CPU power connection was a serious reach. Fortunately Corsair included a cable that could be use as an extension.
2 - The fans were too loud for me at full speed, and although easily undervolted they developed a noticeable clicking noise. Replacing with low RPM fans from my favorite manufacturer.
3 - The hard drives are rubber mounted, but that doesn't quite prevent vibrations from travelling through the case.

Other Thoughts: One of my top priorities in building a computer is to keep it near silent. Although this case doesn't quite manage to do so on its own, it's fortunately very easily modified with the right parts. Aside from the fans, I'm planning on adding sound dampening material to mitigate the remaining noise and the hard drive vibrations.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Case

Pros: Lots of space, and I mean lots and lots of space. Cable management makes for a very clean looking build. I picked one up for $179 and bought a clear side panel for $32. So it is now very versatile when it comes to showing off the board or just hiding it behind the flat black panel. I would recommend this tower for anyone who wants lots of room to work with when building.

Cons: Only two cons I can see, one is the side panel that hides the cables tends to bulged out a little bit. It could have been a 1/2" deeper on that side and would prevent this from happening when a lot of cables are needed for the more intense builds. Also second con, the little filter on the bottom... yeah that should have been made to be pulled out from either the front or the back. It only comes out the back and if this thing is any where near a wall the thing will need to be moved. Its not a huge draw back, but when your pc weigh's over 50 lbs it cumbersome.

Other Thoughts: Its heavy... I would estimate over 50 lbs with the parts in it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: I like it better than a Corsair 800D I had. I was never into the window stuff. And I did not care for the quick swap drives. How often are drives changed anyway. Therefore this case does not have that front door for the quick swap. Better looking front.

Cons: Very Very few. Because of its large size the side panels are easily bowed. Especially the one back of the MB where the wires run. I had to take special care of positioning the cables. On the top of the front cover is an approximate 1" x 9" trim piece that does not hold down perfectly.

Other Thoughts: I have been through a half dozen full tower cases and so far this is the best.

4 out of 5 eggsWonderful case!

Pros: - great design
- quiet
- lots of room for expansion
- excellent cooling
-easy access to everything

Cons: - vertical hard drive bay

Other Thoughts: This case is great and is exactly what I wanted. However, I had installed a 3.5 inch drive on the vertical drive bay towards the bottom and left it there until I was ready to set it up. When I was ready to set it up, the hd was dead and I had to return the drive. Taking out the 3.5 inch drive from that bay was extremely difficult. It was definitely stuck and sad to say, I had to use a lot of force. 30 minutes in and I finally got it out, not without having to purposely break the drive tray.

Those drive trays seem to only be meant for 2.5 inch drives. Even though the 3.5 inch drive fits, it may not come out so easily.

I do have to deduct an egg. Hope this helps, but other than that, a fantastic buy!
