Corsair Obsidian Series 550D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Very good cable management. I was able to easily and effectively route cables behind the motherboard tray and had no issues shutting the side panel (it doesn't bulge out).

Plenty of room to work inside. During the build process I never felt cramped and didn't have any trouble fitting things where they should go.

Included magnetic dust filters (meaning they stick to the case magnetically) keep dust from getting inside the system.

Ability to hold a maximum of 8 fans (2 front, 2 side, 2 top, 1 rear, 1 bottom). The two front fans and bottom fan are 120mm. The side, top, and rear fans are either 120mm or 140mm. Do not worry about about insufficient airflow.

Sound-dampening material throughout the case helps keep sound generated by fans inside the case. This reduces overall noise heard by the user.

Both drive cages can be removed to increases the effectiveness of the airflow generated by the front fans.

Comes with plenty of screws and other miscellaneous hardware. You don't have to worry about being short on screws during the build process.

Cons: No way to mount fans on the exterior for a push-pull configuration. The fan can be physically mounted, but the case has no hole/opening big enough to fit the fan connector through. This is a major design flaw for people like me who use the Corsair H100 Liquid CPU Cooler. If the case was an inch or so taller, push-pull inside the case may have been possible. This deducted an egg.

Other Thoughts: Do not purchase this case if you are planning on doing a push-pull configuration with a Corsair H100.

CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M4A1866C9
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Beautiful design. Looks very durable for the long-haul.
XMP profile works great. No instability of any kind.

Cons: Can't modify color of the lightbar.

Other Thoughts: Using this on an ASUS Sabertooth Z77 with an i7-3770K

SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very roomy. Lots of room to work around in.
Comes with this neat magnetic air filter that goes over the PSU ventilation area.

Cons: The standoffs aren't in the position for MicroATX. It comes with a few extra standoffs so you can install it though.
Cable management features are extremely minimal. I found myself shoving most of the wires in the space underneath the optical drive.

Other Thoughts: Buy the Silverstone SST-ST40F-ES for a power supply (Item#: N82E16817256060). It is compact and fits well with any regular-sized optical drive.
