Default Corsair Obsidian 800D Video Review Comment Thread

First the obligatory:

We "Encourage" you to Sign Up for YouTube and Post Your Comments Under the Video! Also don't forget to subscribe! ... or else



Our video review on the much anticipated Corsair Obsidian 800D is out and boy is it a looker!



For those concerned that Google/Youtube is trying to take over the world (which is probably right) through the collection of personal info and traffic tracking, feel free to post comments, questions or concerns here

Nice review. I mentioned it in the review comments on YouTube, but what is up with that white DVD drive? :)

hehe - my normal black drive had vamoosed while filming, was using it for testing with something else and it disappeared and my other has been "modified" so that it can't fit inside a case.


I know it really uglifies the font - I just didn't want to hold the whole thing up due to a missing drive :P

Looks awesome, not sure if it's enough to change my mind from the Silverstone Raven.

Awesome case, but I question the airflow of the case, especially for those hot video cards.

Damn you FiXT, you've made me even more impatient to get mine now!

Great production value on the video though. Well done.

I can't hear the music, especially when comparing to the other videos. Other than that, a superb review, and an outstanding case!

One thing you didn't cover that would have been good is how many wires or how well do the wires fit behind the motherboard tray with the panel on?

I notice between the bottom and top area there is a small metal ridge of which the wires have to go over.

Is there any issues with clearance between the back panel and mobo tray?
