This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 350D CC-9011028-WW Black Aluminum / Steel MicroATX Case
Pros: Finally a decent case for a MATX board! I chose this over the Silverstone Temjin TJ08B-E and Precision PS07B-W, but mostly because of the sale price. Those look like great cases too, so the decision was not easy for once! I love the cable management, the rounded edges, the looks and smart design. I'm using this build as a combination desktop/HTPC, so looks and functionality are equally important. Corsair really nailed it with this case!
Cons: I think the plastic removable dual SSD cage was made with too brittle a plastic. I broke one of the two cages when I tried to take it apart, but it is no real big deal as I was only going to use one SSD anyway. This SSD cage is different than the one shown in the video. I think I would have liked that one better.
Other Thoughts: I removed the plastic 5.25 drive bay clips, because I'd rather use screws for my VFD and Blu-Ray drives that I'm installing. Since the FVD is using the top drive bay, I believe I could actually fit a full size radiator if I really wanted to go that route.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It set up and worked fine while it was working.
Cons: I came home this afternoon and no video. I tried reseating it, nothing. I tried another video card to isolate the problem. I then tried the video card in another computer and again, no video. Now I will start the RMA process. I figure I'll be using my rebate money for return shipping. :(
Other Thoughts: Hopefully not an engineering defect. I'm always reluctant to give any product a second chance. I'll most likely sell the replacement when I get it.READ FULL REVIEW
