Your choice between: Corsair Obsidian 800D and Cooler Master Cosmos II?
I am really thinking of replacing my old but still good Antec P190 Casing...
Hey Rassal. Looks like we run similar systems. Those are 2 pretty baller cases for a liquid cooled system and honestly either will do. It will come down to which features are more important to you (future upgrades?) and which aesthetics you prefer.
Both: Similar sizes (coolermaster measurements include the feet/handles), similar layout, dust filters, great cable management, 3x120 radiator up top, 2 year warranty, very heavy. If you are just running SSDs and 1 HDD the number of 3.5 bays won't really matter.
Esata and a fan controller on the front panel
If you take the bottom cage out, you can fit a 2x120 rad
10+1 expansion slots so you can run quad SLI/Xfire
200mm front intake
2xhotswap bays + 3x5.25 bays
Has some plastic :(
All steel with an aluminum front panel
4x hotswap bays + 5x5.25 bays
I can vouch for the durable finish
Can fit a 2x120 rad in the bottom, but requires minor modification with a drill/dremel.
Only 7 expansion slots
I wish the rumors were confirmed on the new corsair case. Looks cool. Corsair 900D "Godzilla" Full Tower Chassis Leaked
I've done 2 builds in my 800d now and I really like it. I have mine setup with a loop for the CPU/Mobo and a loop for the GPU. I had an EK dualtop with reservoirs sitting in front of the video cards on my Rampage e3 build, but I found it slightly annoying if I wanted to do anything inside the case and I went with a 5.25 bay dual D5 for my R4E build. I had the right fittings to bridge the CPU block to the mobo block on my R3E, but I was lazy and just used tubing and anti-kink coils for my current build.
If I have any complaints about the 800D: I individually sleeved all my cables and it is a tight fit between the mobo tray and side panel, I wish it was 1/4" wider. Also, I would prefer that the bottom of the window was at the divider. Why have the PSU and rad or HDDs visible...?
Ignore the CD case I used to temporarily hold up the divider before I got around to securing it. Also ignore how dirty the case is as I have moved twice and never wiped it down since I got it lol.
Why not consider the NZXT Switch 810?It will fit a 360 & 240mm rad without any modding,its cheaper than than cosmos ii or 800t:bananafunky:
My vote go towards Corsair. Theirs cases are top notch IMHO.
You're lucky then.
Corsair 800D build quality is not the same as Cosmos, the steel panels are flimsy and the powdercoat chips easily.
Anodized, extruded or machined aluminium > powdercoated steel in my books.
You can always pick the switch 810 gunmetal version if you don't want a glossy finish
