Corsair Obsidian Series 900D CC-9011022-WW Black Aluminum ATX Super Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A lot of room for sure and looks good too. Layout and design are commendable as well. Good marketing and hype on the part of Corsair; got to give them props for that. Does sarcasm belong in the Pros section? Seriously this case looks great, lights up well and shows off your innards very nicely.

Cons: Flimsy parts and pieces everywhere. One of the plastic clips that is containing the wiring on the back broke as soon as I removed it; brittle describes it best. Be careful when opening the hard drive trays as the pins that are being used as hinge replacements will fall out almost every time. One of the 120mm fans that came with case only spins around 600 rpm on a good day. You can literally see that it is spinning slower than the rest. The bottom doors along the length of the case are always falling open.

Other Thoughts: Not up to the marketing and hype. I purchased some Noctua fans to replace the stock fans; these are four pin PWM units. They may be brown but I can rely on their cooling my innards. I guess I will be changing my color scheme.

ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: So far all I can say is that it's pretty to look at.
RMA procedure was fairly painless. Waiting for Cross ship instructions...

Cons: I did a one egg review after this motherboard started disabling system components, USB ports, NIC, and audio. Every time I attempted ANY overclocking at all system components stopped working. So I would do the research, troubleshoot, etc. no joy to be had from this motherboard. So I parked it till I had some time to deal with a complete bench test with various compatible parts. Once I took it apart the BIOS failed to recognize the SSDs or bootable USB stick. With a constant QCode of 34 after a full day of trying as many configurations of parts as possible this pretty thing is set to be RMAed. We will see how that goes.

ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks good, seems sturdy, plenty "stuff".

Cons: This board will not hold any of the built in overclock settings. It is constantly crashing and restarting, whether I am playing a game or just trolling the internet.
I definitely am worried about trying any overclocking on this board.
We will see what happens when I RMA it. I am expecting to do a cross ship, Let's see what happens....
To be continued.
