2 out of 5 eggsCorsair has taken 2 steps backwards

Pros: It is roomy for sure. Fans are typical low-mid grade quiet fans. Front I/O panel is standard. 5.25" bays are standard. Back panel cable management is nice but it is what you expect with making the case bigger.

Cons: I was forced to upgrade from my 800D I've had for just over 5 years due to the I/O boards for the hot swap bays no longer being supplied (thanks Corsair). So I dropped another $400 for the nextgen from Corsair. I read the reviews on here before purchase and can confirm pretty much all of the complaints on this case. Since I've replaced my 800D I'll be referencing it in this review. And since they are both made by Corsair.

The top dust panel: Who designed that release tab? It virtually does nothing when pushed up. So after working on pushing it up and using my arm to pop that thing off I sat there wondering why would you design something to come apart like this? Putting it back on is just as difficult with lining all of the holes up and sliding it back into locking place. You almost have to use your forearms to line it up, keep it all flat and slide it into locking place. I can see how this will warp over time. But it is a step sideways from the bottom filter on the 800D that just slid in and maybe stayed in place. Terrible.

Side door panels-Why would you change the circle buttons from the 800D to these square buttons? I love how easy it was to press the 800D panel release and they just fell away from the case. The 900D is complete trash. I still can't get the window panel to fall away without doing a rain dance, growing fingernails, smacking the side of the panel and getting a thumb workout from repeatedly pushing that thumb button in the back. The release mechanism is horrible. Part of me things it is the lack of the stability of the case. The frame will actually "bend" due to its lack of rigidness keeping the door panel from even hinting of falling away from the case. Didn't have this issue with the 800D.

Bottom side panel - I guess Corsair made up for the failure to release the upper panel with the lower panels ease of opening. The magnets are horrible holding these doors in place right out of the box. I think someone knocked on my front door and they opened like a secret compartment. Another great job by the design team. I'm still trying to figure out why these doors are even here? When would only open a portion of your case? Just to access the flimsy hard drive bays?

HD Bays - Typical, not even going to try to improve anything flimsy drive holders. I don't consider something I have to use a screwdriver on 3 screws something to be modular. The tube spacers on the screws must have been where the cost of this case went to.

Thumb screws for your cards - WOW this has to be the worst part of the case. Make sure you have an angled screwdriver because this was the worst design flaw of the case. While I can say my soundcard did go in pretty easily, my graphics cards did not. Cards don't always line up perfectly and the screws will seat them back into place. If you can get to them. Just awful not being able to get a screwdriver in there. And yes I understand the concept of "thumbscrew."

Other Thoughts: Shipping was fine, box was undamaged. Had no cracks or scratches. Thus making me wonder why the side panel is so hard to release. Newegg got it to me in three days and that was terrific on their part.

Unfortunately, the case itself is a huge disappointment. For a case that is supposed to be made for building and then rebuilding. Meaning you need to get in and out of this case moreso than your average pc builder. It is just a bigger box with a lot of flaws and lack of any improvements.

2 out of 5 eggsGood only if you don't need to access the PCIe slot screws.

Pros: Massive. Water-cooler's dream.
Robust, in most areas.
Aesthetically pleasing.
Lots of room to hide unsightly cabling.
Heavy.

Cons: Some might consider 'Massive' and 'Heavy' to be cons. I do not. Realistic, IMO, cons:
0) On the pricey side.
1) Fundamental design flaw regarding access to PCIe slot screws. (see 'other thoughts')
2) Drive trays are still the cheap flimsy why-even-bother plastic things.

Other Thoughts: The _only_ real flaw with this case is an inability to access the PCIe slot screws when using enthusiast/high end, graphics cards. These cards tend to be taller which nigh occludes the already sorry excuse for what the designer allotted as access to that area. I have 3 MSI gtx 980 Gaming 4G in a custom WC loop. Initially, I did not have them in a loop so I've had to attempt access to that area 3x now. It was _hateful_ the first 2 times!

The 3rd time, I removed everything from the case, took the thing to my drill press and drilled a 12mm hole into the case area above each PCIe slot screw. So 10 holes. This is large enough that I can get my bitted magnetic screw-driver straight into the thing. This is the the _least_ obvious way to fix such a clueless design flaw.

A single strip of black electrical tape over the holes further 'hides' and shores up positive airflow issues. If that's an issue.

Perhaps the 1000D, if they call it that, will actually get it right out of the box?

4 out of 5 eggs900D

Pros: Great case!
It is extremely large and had tons of room!

Cons: The bottom doors have a hard time staying closed without the side panels on

Other Thoughts: I gave this case a 4 star because I think there are a few places that can be improved upon.
1. Better cable management for power cables
2. Better top vent release system
3. Revamp the lower door locking system, the magnets are just not strong enough

5 out of 5 eggsBest case ever......

Pros: The Corsair Obsidian 900D is a very unique and terrific product. It is one of the most versatile and coolest looking chassis' to date. Whether you want to install a small form factor motherboard or go huge with XL-ATX and HP-ATX it simply is all possible. Two PSUs? Sure, not an issue. The fans aren't silent, but not noisy either yet offer a nice steady airflow inside the chassis, cooling down your high-end gear, and that's a very important aspect alright. Wiring? You tuck it away with the convenient cable routing options. HDDs you simply slide in and then once you've gone through the basics, you start to wonder why on earth you did not opt for water-cooling. And once you start with your LCS kits you'll notice there are mounts everywhere making this chassis very flexible to use whilst you do not have to mod stuff, it won't get any handier than this. Summed up, the Obsidian 900D really is all about great aesthetics whilst having a chassis that has no limitations whatsoever. It has fantastic build quality and oozes craftsmanship. (I did not feel like writing this in my own words so i copied this from guru3d.com , they put it exactly as I would off..)

Cons: Only if Corsair made a 950D that's even bigger with more features and compatibility.......

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing case!

Pros: Quality Build material
Fan mounts everywhere
A LOT of space!!
Good cable management with tons of access points
Large side window to show off the goodies
USB 3.0 up front concealed behind the front cover (great for plugging in USB optical drive, flash drive etc)
Did i mention... Lots of space.....

Cons: Shipping/packing is a JOKE!

Other Thoughts: Bought this case to drop my new build into, and ready up for the custom water loop i will be doing. I opened the box, to find the top foam holder had been snapped.. didnt think much of it, removed the top and pulled the case. Took it out of the plastic wrap, took the side panels off and went to town building. After I was done with mounting motherboard, all the fans etc.. I noticed the side window panel had a scuff mark on the packing sheets which are applied throughout the entire case protecting the finish of the case. well the window had a large gash where something protruded from the side of the box during shipping. I looked at the box and sure enough, a large puncture to the side... right where the window is for the case. I called newegg support, and after 20 minutes or so of back and forth, they shipped me another case out so I could have a replacement window to switch with. 2 days shipping, (3 business days later) I received the new case. I was in utter shock to see the new box that was delivered also had a nice big puncture hole in the side of the case. I opened the box, and luckily it was on the opposite side of the case this time, but like dang.. you think something of this $$ they would have a better packaging protecting the side window.. or choose a better service that isnt going to be throwing the boxes around (because it is rather heavy @ 50lbs).

Overall though, have to say this is the best case I have ever owned or had the luxury of building in. It looks great, and allowed some amazing cable management to keep the build clean and efficient!

2 out of 5 eggsNice design but terrible build quality and packaging

Pros: - Big
- Like, really big. Bigger than full towers. Fits a 480mm radiator and dozens of fans.
- Nine HDD bays with relatively easy installation
- Four fans included
- Lots of USB front panel ports
- Did I mention how big it is?

Cons: - Flimsy motherboard tray
- Extremely flimsy HDD trays
- Owner's manual is a joke
- Bottom doors won't stay closed because of cheap magnets
- Side panels are a NIGHTMARE to open/close
- You need the world's shortest screwdriver to remove the expansion slot covers
- Cheap-o powder coat scratches with the slightest touch

Other Thoughts: I've been a Corsair fan for a while but this case was a huge disappointment. For starters, after waiting for it to arrive late, I take my huge 900D case out of the box to discover it is badly damaged. The box has 6 holes in it and there is almost no protective packaging. The case itself is dented and broken in several places making it unusable.

For $350, I shouldn't be able to bend the MB tray with almost no effort. Just unscrewing the standoffs scratched the black paint inside. The front panel has a busted fastener and will not stay on. The bottom doors keep falling open because of the cheap magnetic closures. The entire front metal frame is horribly dented. It looks as though my package were dropped from the truck.

The side panels are a pain to get off- They're supposed to have this "quick-release" button that just makes them pop off, but in reality, it takes the quick-release button and being pried open with a screwdriver to get it off.

In general, this is a complicated case; however, the manual is two pages. No instructions or anything. I first thought there was some trick to getting the side panels off, only after looking it up online did I realize it was stuck/broken. The manual is just some pictures of the screws (incorrectly labeled I might add) and a confusing 3D diagram. It even comes with some extraneous "mystery screws" not mentioned in the manual. I've yet to discover what they're for.

The whole thing is just so cheaply made that it got damaged so easily, This case is unusable for my build, which will now be delayed at least a week. And now I have to go through the hassle of returning this monstrous case... won't that be fun.

5 out of 5 eggsMonster Case

Pros: This Case will hold anything you want to put in it. If you are thinking of obtaining the Phanteks Cooler this case will have no problem with it at all. On the other hand I am using water cooling so this is great for it. This comes with many extra cables and a huge side panel window. It really will accommodate anything.

Cons: The side panels are a little difficult to get off at the beginning. If you want to see all your cooling and lights in your case your going to need a big desk to put it on top of. But it will fit great on the floor if you don't care about seeing your insides.

Other Thoughts: If you want a lot of space and a tower not as big go with the 800D it is just as good. I just wanted to try this one out I will have it for a very very long time.. well until something better comes out.

2 out of 5 eggs50lbs Doorstop

Pros: Big case, fits everything. I'm a competitive powerlifter 6'2 and compete around 242-275 lbs and this case is HUGE even for me. Looks good.

Cons: Where do I start.
1. FLIMSY and WEAK feels like it was made with pepsi can material. I returned this and replaced with Lian Li V2130 and nothing on that case bends from me just resting my forearm on it.
2. Horrible side panel design, gets stuck very easy in fact, mine came with the most important side stuck and had to pry it open with a screwdriver.
3. Pain in the rear end to remove the top panel, you have to reach inside and under the top of the case and grab whatever you can, PULL without breaking any of the paper thin materials and hope you don't cut your finger like I did. This wouldn't be so bad if the case was sturdy but I bent several parts in the process.
4. $300+ case that feels like it was made with $10 parts and paper towels. G o d forbid you are over 200 lbs and have normal to decent strength..you'll destroy this case by just removing things.

Other Thoughts: I've owned the 800D for a few years now and I love the case. Sturdy, well made and no issues other than very few SSD storage areas. I bought this to build another computer since they don't make the 800D and I made the mistake of assuming this would be an upgrade to the 800D. It's just bigger that's all.

5 out of 5 eggsTons of room

Pros: Like the review says tons of room. Great build quality. love the case.

Cons: the magnets holding the filters are a bit weak. Im sure there is a reason for that. Also the top panel is kind of hard to take off.

3 out of 5 eggsOk

Pros: Huge
The case it's self is well built.
For the size, it isn't overly heavy
Ideal for most high end liquid cooling

Cons: There are some serious design flaws.

Does not have a full set of wire grommets:
For some reason or another, Corsair chose not to include wire grommets for the top two spaces. Also I think there could have been a better design for the wire management for the 5.25 slots that should have included wire grommets

Sketchy radiator compatibility:
The EK 480MM PE radiator(Which is their slim radiator) would only fit on the top in one way. The case connectors blocked any chance of the radiator fitting the way I wanted. The front space that should fit a 360MM, will not even fit a 240MM without some case modding if there are any radiators installed in the bottom spaces. This was severely disappointing because I had planned to use a 240mm radiator there.

Like many have said here, the drive bays are complete trash. Many cases have much better quality when it comes to drive bays for a far smaller price tag.

PCI-E screws are near impossible to use with out some serious effort. In order to mount the 3 GTX 780 Classifieds with waterblocks, it took a good 30~45 minute effort between my son and I to finally get all the screws in place.

Magnetic doors and filters are weak and struggle to stay closed/on.

Included fans are not quite and will be quickly replaced for most people.

Other Thoughts: I would like to address something I noticed while I was reviewing reviews on this case. Many of the reviews that gave any bad reviews were immediately given thumbs down reviews even though they were quite honest.

This case is not perfect by a long shot. I personally believe it is a bit expensive for the overall quality of the case and the included items inside the case. That being said, the next case that offers more is nearly $600 from Case labs.

I do feel that Corsair should offer a midplate option and the correct amount of wire grommets for all wire management holes.

I also would like to see a clear window option. These are personal opinions.

Other than then mentioned cons, I will be using this case for a long time after some mods.

If anyone decided to really read this entire review, please don't rate down unless you honestly think I have been unfair to this product.
