Summary: I have the same computer for 15 years now. All parts keep changing and nothing from the original computer still exists it seems but here I am, officially the same computer. Frankenstein computer I guess. Anyway, this is the best case I've ever owned. I've owned many types of cases including modular and cubes. I have done air and water cooling and this case is a blast because I can do either or. If I want to attach my full-size radiator it is already set up for it.
Summary: When was the last time you showed off your PC? I have planned a new PC for a few months and had been looking at cases for it, but was not thrilled to have a case with flashing blue LEDs, garish color or other gimmicks. Then I ran across Corsair's Obsidian 800D. Corsair really put a lot of thought and engineering behind this case. There is not one element of the case that doesn't have a purpose.
Summary: I was in the process of building a new PC for myself a few months ago, and frankly, the 900D wasn't out. From what I am reading, it's a good thing I went with the 800D. Now, let me describe a few things. Let me describe a bit about the system, first: System Board: Asus Maximus V Formula CPU: i7-3770K, 3.9GHz CPU Cooling: Corsair H100i Memory: Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133MHz, 16GB (8x2) Video: Asus GTX 660Ti OC Power: Corsair AX860i Disks: Samsung 840Pro SSD, 128GB, WD...
Summary: I just purchased this case as part of a build for a customer and am impressed in every way possible (with an exception... see below). PROS - - The case is HEAVY... because it's almost all metal. It's extremely well-built and very, very sturdy. If feels well-built, if that makes sense. - It came with plenty of fans for air cooling and there's room for quite a few more. - The front bezel is gorgeous.
Summary: I previously had the NXZT Phantom, very small and cheap feeling case. Moving to the Obsidian 800D was a huge step up from my old case, fits everything I have with empty space for many future upgrades.
Summary: I replaced the NZXT Switch 810 with this. I did lose some 140mm features on the top portion but the Switch 810 is in such a much lower quality compared to the 800D. The thing is solid and gorgeous, spacious and a delight to work on. Just make sure to replace the included fans, though. They're a bit too weak in pushing air since the space inside is large. I really like the hotswap bay, too. Makes switching with hard drive an easy task.
Summary: This computer case is amazing the cooling zones, grommets, and other little details really make this case shine. From looking at other cases and even having hands on some of the more popular cases (thermaltake level 10gt, NXZT, etc) this one hands down is the most solid built and cool. The only thing I would say about this computer is its not very easy to move, so if you want a computer that you can pick up and LAN with I would suggest another case!
Summary: Have owned different Thermaltake Armor cases over the past decade and they were great cases. This is a different animal, and a revolution in case making. There are separate compartments for thermal management, tons of grommets for cable management, triple radiator mount, bottom PS mount, and a depth that can fit almost any MB and Video card. Also numerous 5.25" & 3.5" bays,all the 3.5"s have mounting holes for 2.5" (SSD) and 4 of the 6 3.5"s are hot-swappable.
