This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 550D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
The look and feel of this case is amazing. Nothing feels cheap or flimsy. The magnetic dust grills make it super easy to clean. The panels open with the push of one button.
It's not as big or monstrous like other cases. Other cases look like burly monstrous obnoxious hideous thinks. This case is a sleek Armani suit look.
It could have helped if it was an inch taller. I installed an asus rampage 3 motherboard and i had to made modifications to the sata 2 cables because how the motherboard sinks in to the case. How ever the rampage 3 extreme was built with huge cases in mind and they made the board bigger. I don't think that credits a one egg loss. Air flow is as good as other cases but keep in mind that this case is trying to become silent which does an excellent job.
Airflow on this case with an H80 corsair cooler is somewhat of a problem. You might want to such air from the outside and push it in but i have not tried this because i don't want dust to get inside the case. How ever nothing about this case is bad. It goes for a silent solution and it excels on this.
