Corsair Obsidian Series 800D CC800DW Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Aluminum/Steel ATX Full Tower
  • USB/Audio/IEEE1394 Front Ports
  • Bottom Mounted Power Supply

Pros:

BIG!!
Never need another case until EATX, MATX, and ATX are gone.
Tons of useful details like hot swap HDs, Tool free Optical Drive bays, thumb screws on PCI slots, and no more thumb screw holding side panels. Plus more.
Very well made. So far I have found no manufacturing flaws from the brushed aluminum front to interior coating.
No LEDs.(Personal preference after all the blue from my previous case lighting up my room like the sun.)

Cons:

Out of the box it is not a case meant for air cooling. Already had an extra 75cfm fan to add to top and all my temps were still 5 to 7 degrees Celsius warmer at idle than my 900 even with the poor cable management. This I believe is because Corsair went with quieter 140mm fans rather than higher performance ones. To me it feels that they only move about half the air each than the one I added.
Other than that maybe a little heavy at 43 pounds including box and my psu's cpu power cable was almost to short to reach and if I had a crossfire or sli setup it would not have reached.

Other Thoughts:

Not bad for Corsair's first foray into cases.
I didn't take an egg off for the cooling because I already figured that was the case being that it was meant for liquid cooling which when SATA3 and USB3 become more main stream I will build a new system that will be liquid cooled and will be going in this monster.
One of the best Computer cases I have seen and I have been going to computer shows since I was little(Now 21).
Did not see a sense in mentioning the cable management in pros since it is obviously amazing.
Could use higher performance fans for those who dont plan on going liquid but adding the extra 2 fans may solve the heat problem thou it will make the filter on the bottom useless weather you make it negative or positive pressure because of all the vents on the back of the case were air and by extension dust will be pulled into the case with negative pressure. And If I go positive I would have to get filters for them.
Cant wait to see Corsair's next case.
