Corsair Obsidian Series 250D (CC-9011047-WW) Black Aluminum / Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: There are only two ITX cases I really like, and they are both made by Corsair.

I can't think of any features that I could call out as exceptional that haven't already been mentioned by other reviewers and Corsair themselves.

This is an awesome case. I only wish I had a reason to build more PCs with it so I could try out different configurations.

Cons: I had trouble with the storage drive mounting trays. One of the pins that holds the drive in place popped out while installing one of my hard drives, and I had to pop it back in.

I consider that a minor gripe, and I wouldn't even ask Corsair to change the design of these trays unless they can find a way to keep those pins from coming out. The less screws I have to turn, the better.

Other Thoughts: I'm using an optical drive (LG Blu-ray burner) with a brushed look to it that matches the front of the case pretty well.

I've got an Asrock Z97 motherboard and a 4690K, cooled with an H100i, currently running at 4.6 GHz. I'm using the stock fans on the H100i and the stock front fan. The only other fan is in the power supply, and I have it facing the motherboard to help cool it down. I don't have a GPU installed on this PC as I use it for encoding only. I'm quite pleased to report that at the highest stable overclock I could get at an acceptable voltage, this system performs beyond my expectations in both cooling and noise output.

Fractal Design Core 1000 FD-CA-CORE-1000-USB3-BL Black Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Better in design than build quality, but still better than the vast majority of offerings in this price range. I happen to like the hard drive mounting solution, even though there's not room for many drives. Front fan is filtered.

Cons: The case is quite small, making cable management a chore. Fan filter seems like it will be difficult to clean. PSU is on the top instead of the bottom. Limited fan options. Limited room for components.

Other Thoughts: Get it when it's on sale. Plan out your install process as much as you can. The hard drive mounting panel is removable, so take that out before installing the mobo. Put it back only after most of your connections are made.
