This review is from: Corsair Obsidian 750D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Very good looking case. There are many places to mount fans 3 on top 1 on back 2 on bottom and 2 in the front. When all fans are utilized this case gets very good air flow and helps with temperatures. Enough room to mount my h105 closed loop liquid cooling radiator on the top in a push pull configuration even (why I bought this case) it is a tight fit for the fan connectors for the cpu on top, but it still does work. Case is well built and looks beautiful. lots of cable management space on the back (one inch). Every hole that you need for cable management. Full modular design, comes in handy cause you can decide where you want to put the hard drives. I personally took the 2 hdd holders off the bottom and mounted one below the 5.25 bays so that I can use the bottom 2 fans and give room for the 2 front fans for air flow.
Cons: The rubber things that go on the top are too thick and cannot be in if the screws are to mount the radiator on top. Had to take them out.
Other Thoughts: Awesome case I would recommend this to anyone.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler, CW-9060016-WW
Pros: I now have ice cicles on my CPU not. Seems of very good quality. I was a little worried at first so I tried it out with just a power supply and an adapter. Pump ran good and didn't have any leaks. It is a fat radiator, couldn't fit it inside of the case so I took the top panel off and mounted it to the top of the case. Water block could not fit through hole in the top of the case so I got some tin snips and made the hole big enough and put tape around the sharp edges so that the hoses didn't get damaged during installation. Looks awesome and keeps cpu very cool especially at lower speeds. During overclocking 4.5ghz @1.24 volts on i5-4670k I get around 10 degrees (c) lower temperature on full load after running it for a while. Not quite the performance gain I was expecting but I am still satisfied with my purchase. Fairly easy installation.
Cons: Didn't come with enough screws for a push pull configuration and the fans didn't come with the long screws either. Only had enough screws to do a pull configuration so I went to the hardware store and found some. It was only 64 cents to buy but that is something I think should be included.
Other Thoughts: I am happy with corsair products at this moment, I will consider buying more in times to come. Will update if this ever leaks at all.READ FULL REVIEW
