4 out of 5 eggs The quiet and clean Beast 01/10/2014

This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 550D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros:

Easy to build in.
Motherboard mounts up easily, with no standoffs need for installation. The backplate is cutout so you can install an aftermarket CPU cooler with a MOBO installed.
6 HDD/SSD slots, divided into two cages. The middle cage is removable to allow for better cooling.
Fans are almost silent at idle, not annoying at all.
Doors are easily removed and attached.
DVD/CD drives sit flush against the front, no mismatch.

With everything installed and closed, it is VERY quiet. But certainly not silent.

Cons:

The area where the MOBO mounts may be a little tight for any ATX MOBO that has the SATA connectors that lay flat at the bottom right hand corner. This may block SATA slot #1 for a larger (non-standard) ATX format.

Fans - not the best, not the worst, just average.

Other Thoughts:

It's large. Know that coming in. It may be fine if that's what you want, but if you are looking for a smaller mid-ATX case, this may be too big for your taste.
This case will help silent whisper-quiet components, as well as help tame those that are fairly quiet.
For a GPU running at full fan speed, this won't block out all the noise, but a good chunk of it.
