Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5
Rated 4 out of 5 by mohammedali Looks very good, a lot of space for a lot of components, nice size window and overall its a very good case and i'd recommend it to anyone.
no really bad points except you might want to change the fans when you get the case as they are a little loud and the fan that goes in the front can be no thicker than 2cm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex Very large work space, great cable managment. This is my first case so i can not compare it to others, but this was defintely good buy, especially for first time builders.
The front USB 3.0 ports need to be ran through the back of the case to plug into the motherboard I/O, so make sure your motherboard has two spare USB 3.0 ports on the mother board. Just a note. Nothing bad about this case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keith Same basis as the Obsidian 800D.
Front panel looks like a modified 800D (I have the 800D)
Quick release/install optical drives
Option to secure drives with screws
Hard disks easy to install - Mine have no screws - but they're optional
Removable caddies. Either have 1 installed, 2 installed, or have both located in the bottom. If you're interested, you could possible order another caddy and have 3x caddies in there. Not sure about the fixings for them
Front fascia is held by 6 clips on the inside - need to be pushed aside to pull off the front. When this is removed, the cables for the front panel are independent.If you've built many, you'll understand why this is a PLUS.
Quick release side panels
Enough room for water cooling in the top 2x240 Radiator, or a single 120.
Room for a rear mounted radiator, or if you were brave enough a dual radiator
Dust filter in the bottom
Adjustable PSU holder.Holds it firmly.
Ability to hide cables around the back
Front fan works effectively to force airflow over hard disks.
Front mesh is a removable filter.
Options for a mesh side panel, or a blank panel
Option to have the PSU facing any way you like. Fan down, or fan up. There are mountings to support this.
Packaging not as exciting as the Obsidian 800D, but does its job well at protecting it. Mine came with a black cloth.
Everything is black so everything hides nicely allowing you to show off your hardware
Only available in black
Heavy. I wouldn't move this around too much unless you had to.
I don't think this properly supports boards with 8 expansion ports. I'm sure the extra is ideal for a dongle of some sort, or for extra room for a graphics card which can take up a couple bays.
Power button seems excessively stiff compared to my 800D which is mostly the same.
Colours for power and HDD activity are a bland white. Not sure what this would look like with alternate LED's Might ruin or improve it.
