5 out of 5 eggsCorsair Obsidian Series 250D

Pros: + Plenty of space
+ Easy to assemble
+ Built-in dust covers
+ Good air flow
+ USB 3.0 front panel connectors
+ High quality parts / didn't feel cheap

Cons: - HDD caddies were difficult to use / felt like I was going to break them
- No wire management
- Had to buy a 3-pin to molex fan connector

Other Thoughts: I was searching online for a case for an HTPC build that was stylish, had good air flow, easy to assemble, and expandable. After watching some videos on YouTube, I decided to go with this beautiful case. The case is a lot bulkier than usual, so it doesn't fit the bill for a traditional HTPC. It's wider than my micro ATX case. But I liked it for all of its other features.

The case comes with two fans, a 140mm fan in the front, and a 120mm fan on the side. You can install another 120mm fan or a radiator as needed. My motherboard only had a single connector for a fan besides the CPU fan, so I had to purchase a 3-pin to molex connector. I like that there are built-in dust covers on the front, on the side, and under the PSU. The case can support an ATX power supply, which is nice because it's easy to buy a replacement as needed. Next to the PSU slot are slots for 2x 2.5in HDDs and 2x 3.5in HDDs with built-in caddies. The caddies are tool-less, but were a pain to work with. I felt like I was going to break them by adding in an SSD. The front panel has 2 USB 3.0 connectors as well as connectors for audio in and audio out. The case has room for an optical drive if you need one. There's plenty of room inside the case so it's not cramped. However, the case is lacking in wire management. Overall, assembling the computer was easy with the thumbscrews in the back. The case looks great with the brushed metal front. It didn't feel cheap at all.

Parts for my build:
Corsair Obsidian 250D case
ASRock B85M-ITX LGA 1150 motherboard
Intel Core i3-4150 CPU
G.Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 memory
Seasonic 400W fanless PSU
Crucial M500 240GB SSD

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent gaming case

Pros: Plenty of room for cable management, especially with the 3.5" drive bays removed. Great for performance rigs where you want plenty of room for radiators, full-sized VGAs and PSUs. Included dust filters are quality, and seem to really do their job, even a week or so in. Looks great and is even easier to put together.

Cons: LED pins felt a bit loose.

Other Thoughts: I found the backplate to the motherboard to be a tight fit, but I can't say that's the case's fault any more than the motherboard. Included case fans are decent, but not the best from Corsair that you'll find.

5 out of 5 eggsThis Takes the Mini out of Mini-ITX

Pros: Enough room to get your head inside the case after you complete the build, well, almost. After to working on M350 compact cases for years, it was a year luxury to have all the room inside this one.

Lots of air flow options, large front fan, large side fan, large side opening where the graphics card will go, two empty 80mm openings in the rear over the motherboard. There is enough air venting that low-RPM, low-noise fans can be used throughout.

The cables for the front panel include USB3, and a reset button. Both are a step up from the tiny cases.

Cons: Phillip mentioned he had trouble with the pins on the drive caddies. I found a way to install them that seems better than the manual. Remove two pins from one side of the caddy. This involves pressing the rubber mount so it falls into the interior of the caddy with the pins intact. These metal pins are interted into the rubber boots and are easy to slip out. Slide your drive over the two remaining pins in the opposite caddy rail and then inssert the two pins you just removed into the other side of the drive. With the pins and rubber boots held in place by gravity, now slide the drive back into the slightly bent caddy. If anything falls, try again.

I was able to get the pins back into the rubber boots with a small pliers and a proper twist of the boot. I had to do this a couple of times until I figured out this method, which was foolproof for me.

This unit takes a lot of desk space. It's actually larger than my six-bay NAS unit, and I keep that on rack.

Other Thoughts: I like the case a lot. I wish it had a multi-color LED for On/StandBy/Off, but that's not documented, so I assume it isn't there. A fair amount of the case space is wasted under the optical drive if you don't use the space for a cooler. I used it for a 3-pin fan-control splitter, and to loom the excess power wires. If you went without an optical drive, this case might be one-half as deep. But, with the interior volume, no worries about heat being retained in the cabinet. You could live inside if you were small.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: This case does it all. 2 3.5" drives, 2 SSD drives and a Optical drive. With support for pretty much any ATX PSU out there and big graphics cards. It also has plenty of fan points and the ability to install a 240mm Rad.

Cons: It's a bit on the large size for using an ITX board.

Other Thoughts: It's a good looking case but a bit on the large size but that's made up for with the cooling abilities. If you've never built in a smaller case it takes a bit of getting used to with how cramped it is compared to something like a full tower.

5 out of 5 eggs250D

Pros: This case is made of high quality material. They did a great job of designing this case for proper cable management as well as minimizing the amount of unused space.

Cons: They claim a 200 mm can fit in the front, but it kinda-sorta doesn't. I put a H100i in with the smallest profile 200 mm fan I could find. The h100i radiator has about a 1-2 mm intersection with the 200 mm fan. I pushed a bit to flex the metal at the 200 mm mount area which did the trick.

Other Thoughts: CAUTION

The specifications for allowable graphics cards is NOT CORRECT. Several people have reported problems getting certain models of the Nvidia 980 to fit, with sacrifices being required.

5 out of 5 eggsmITX with no sacrifices

Pros: Houses full size ATX power supplies, Great implementation of HDD and SSD cages that are easily accessible from the rear, Can accept large GPU's, GPU gets plenty of air as it sits right up against a vent, Decent amount of cable routing options, Dust filters are well implemented and are easily accessible, Overall very clean and aesthetically pleasing to look at case thats easy to build in

Cons: Hard drive retention clips are very weak, mine broke, but not worth docking an egg. Fairly large for a mITX case. Other than that I have no complaints

Other Thoughts: I built this as a living room HTPC/Fully capable gaming rig. This was a very fun and rewarding build to do. I was able to fit a Powercolor PCS+ r9 290 inside the case with a little coaxing, but thats a 300+mm card!!!!
4770k at 4.6ghz
ASUS Z97i PLUS mITX motherboard
Corsair CX600 PSU
Corsair H100i (fits perfectly!)
Trident X 2400mhz cl10 2 x 8gb

5 out of 5 eggsCheck that it fits

Pros: good looking case, 5/5 wife approval rating, quiet

Cons: The stock fans leave a little to be desired. Getting a couple of 80mm Noctua's for the top rear exhaust helped a lot. The large front fan comes as an intake. I found it best utilized as an exhaust for a little negative pressure in the case.

Other Thoughts: built this up as a mean gaming machine with 850w full size PSU, mini ITX mobo, and Powercolor (who?) R9 290X.

2 out of 5 eggsLooks great- too small for gaming PCs

Pros: Looks great. Very small compared to larger cases. Low cost when purchased with rebate.

2 stars because I still want to love the case.

Cons: Bought this case and the H100i because I read reviews that said this water cooler was specifically designed for this case. It is not. The water cooler did not fit with my motherboard... My asus board (Z87i deluxe) had USB ports that the lower cooling tube and if I tried to turn it so the tubes were facing the front of the case well then it ran into the 200mm fan I installed. The result is that I have to install it crooked and could only fit in one screw to the radiator.... Luckily I was able to jerry-rig a 2nd and 3rd screw into small slots that were near the screw holes....

In addition the video card I installed has fans that hit the inside of the case. I had to install a foam spacer that doesn't work great... I have had to frequently open the case to readjust.

What should have been an awesome build took over 3 hours with two people working on it constantly trying to trouble shoot the issues.

Other Thoughts: Bought this case for a small gaming PC because it looked fun. Researched fairly extensively and even reading reviews and forums I did not read about the issues I had.

5 out of 5 eggsroom to swing a

Pros: It was truly a pleasure to build this case. Without taking up very much space, this box has room inside to fit virtually any major gamer build, water cool the CPU and the Video board, and blow cool air over everything else. Big fans make much less noise; I can't hear this box running from 6 feet away in normal household ambient noise levels. Every part of this box shows quality and well thought out design. It may seem pricey at first look, but I've sworn at and bled on every less expensive box I've built, somewhere around a triple dozen in the last 25 years. Consider me a computer blood donor!

Cons: Costs twice as much as the cheap ones, but worth it.

Other Thoughts: If I didn't get bored building the same case over and over, I'd stick to this one for a while! With practice I could pump one out in an hour, with a lunch break...
