5 out of 5 eggsQuiet Performance - Look No Further!

Pros: This case came highly recommended by a friend, then after more research I found out that 2 more of my friends were using this Corsair Obsidian Case. Do you want quiet and well ventilated case? Do you want to try out with water cooling? This is the case to go with. It keeps my room quieter than most laptops :)

- Well designed for cable management
- Ample room for reaching your components
- Excellent padding on the inside along the sides to dampen any noise
- Simply one of the best cases out there

Cons: - After 6 months of use, can't name a single negative thing about it

Other Thoughts: - Highly Recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: - Quiet
- Good cable management
- Clean look

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case if you want a quiet case. I would also recommend you go with a water cooling - perhaps the Corsair H60 - to keep your processor cool.

3 out of 5 eggsNice Case but.......

Pros: - Cable Management
- Side Panels
- Plenty of Room

Cons: I have had this case for over 3 years now. The clips that hold the front panel onto the case keep breaking. Very cheap, poor design. Replacement clips need to available from corsair without having to purchase other items.

Other Thoughts: If given the choice I wouldn't buy this case again.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good size for a mid-tower

Pros: It has more than enough room for my graphics cards, which is nice considering many mid sized cases don't support ones above 8 inches.

All of the vents have air filters on them to help stop dust from collecting inside. You can also choose what vents you want to use as they can be blocked off.

Cons: You NEED a modular power supply or else your cable management will suffer. There is not a lot of room to route cables in the back which in my opinion is the only flaw of this design.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sturdy and keeps my system super quiet. Has plenty of cable room for routing. I plan on buying this case again for my gaming computer.

Cons: Slightly bigger than your average mid-tower, or it seems that way. It would be nice to have the option to buy without the side vent that throws off the look.

5 out of 5 eggsVery satisfied after 2 years

Pros: Plenty of room; I have an ssd and 3 hdd in the case. Very easy to make changes. Like that it has 3 fans and the filters seem to work well. Quiet, Not too tall. Very straightforward / clean assembly with modular power supply and other components.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Would make the same choice again. I believe it will serve me well for years to come.

5 out of 5 eggsA great case

Pros: This case is very easy to open and work within, and the fans are nearly silent. Upgrades are performed quickly and the front-mounted ports are extremely useful.

Cons: None that come to mind.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you need a case this large before purchasing. There are other, smaller cases in the Corsair family that have most of the features of this case without the imposing size.

5 out of 5 eggsLike a Butler - Silent and Effective

Pros: The case is solidly built. It won't win any awards for flash, but it's stylish and sleek in its understated way. It includes plenty of cable management (which I never take advantage of as much as I should), and its sound-dampening features are perfect. Even at 2 AM, with the ambient noise of the house and the city, if I couldn't see the power button I wouldn't know the rig was even running unless I put my ear to it.

Cons: None. This may not be the perfect computer case, but if not, it has to be pretty close.

Other Thoughts: It's not really a con, per se, but in the dim lighting I use it in most of the time, the power button light can actually begin to be distracting.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks great, if you're not into the whiz-bang of LEDs and windows. Keeps quiet, and still runs pretty cool. Has optional panels and tons of mounts for customizable airflow.

Cons: The door hinge broke within days of using it. There's a cut-out on the front for USB ports, which means you can't open the door if stuff is plugged in (seriously, how did they overlook that?). Seems to get exceptionally dusty, especially with the aforementioned panels.

Other Thoughts: It's surprisingly roomy for a smallish mid tower. Originally crammed a Noctua D14 into it, and more recently fit an H110i GT as well.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible

Pros: This is simply a beautiful case. Easy to use. Fantastic air flow. QUIET. Stylish. Dust filters are awesome. I love how easy it is to take off the paneling and "open it up" during gaming sessions (although it's not necessary). If I needed another case, I would buy this one again without even thinking about it.

Cons: I can't think of any cons.
