I love Corsair's cable management features.
name ur watercooling parts and temps
i was going to buy this case tonight but it just hasn't for enough intake fans to keep it cool, they should have crapped the hdd swap bay and make room for 2x140 rans in bottom front, so im getting my self a cosmos S
What are you going to put in it that doesn't run cool enough? A nuclear reactor?
I dunno, I would have got the Corsair. ATM that and the TJ07 are the best and easiest cases to install watercooling into. The corsair can support a tripple rad in the roof right out of the box.
The TJ07 has enough room for both a tripple and a dual rad in the bottom too... check my TJ07 build here if u want a few ideas:
@ GC_PaNzerFIN: Love the Obsidian m8... might have to make it my next case once this TJ is past its best!
their are alot of review and youtube reviews which says this case runs alot hotter then most of todays cases, also that the temps dont disperse after going back to idle,
Well see on monday. If it doesn't melt in to pile of metal.... or does...
You need to be absolute nuts to get too hot sytem for this case. I have 4.1GHz i7 and its doing jsut fine in there.
Watercooling is a bit different though. While u need some airflow accross the mobo its not as vital as in an aircooled system. I would put a rad in the roof of the obsidian, with fans pulling air through it (so the roof becomes and intake) then have the rear fans sucking air out. That should be plenty good enough, as you would be supplying fresh air to the rad.
Right now I have 3x 12cm Noctuas as exhaust on the top, and the 14cm stock intake, and back exhaust and hotswap cage.
Cool... im sure its a very good case. Love the hotswapable drive bays in the front. Thats one issue I have with my TJ - not enough space for HDD's with all the watercooling gear installed, largely cos in the stock case the drive cages are in the bottom where u have to install the rads.

forgot to mention, all fans are CM Silent 120mm, except on the side fan panel 4 x EKL Silent 120mm
some cooler mods, just gotta get the back panel modded to fit the new heatsinks. dropped load temps by around 20-25c.
pretty colours lol
@mm10x ^ nicely done! Not much room to work there.. very impressive
ty! the heatsinks where pulled off an old toshiba, and a fujitsu just for reference.. i have too many broken parts laying around.
Is that a core 2 in that M55?
of course, only a T5600 at the moment though. also i did a rare 9600m GS swap on it.
looks great. Didn't think the obsidian had a side window for some reason!
tj07 can also fit a quad rad & dual rad easy at the bottom
