Nice case, too bad it doesn't seem to have been released yet, as no place seems to have it in stock. It's on the top of my wishlist.

Yeah! It's also listed in Amazon.de (Germany). But guess what; it's not available yet :(. Click Here.

I do have a question, why a vent at the bottom of the 7 expansion slots instead of an 8th expansion slot with a vented cover? An 8th expansion slot would allow you to choose between using that area as a vent (with the vented expansion slot cover) or as an extra expansion slot for things like extra ports. Seems like you'd get the best of both worlds with an 8th expansion slot with a vented cover.

Default Corsair Obsidian 800D and the CORSAIR CWCH50 Water Cooler

I noticed on the reviews of the CORSAIR CWCH50 Water Cooler that it is recommended to push air into the case with the attached fan but on the 800D this is supposed to be an exhaust pulling air out. What is the recommended configuration for the CORSAIR CWCH50 Water Cooler inside the 800D case to keep this CPU cool?

I will be running the EVGA E760 CLASSIFIED "Overclocker's Pick" 3-Way SLI + PhysX 1366 Intel X58 EATX Intel Motherboard with CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D x2 (12 GB Total)and the Intel 920 i7. I am hoping the case will fit the DD Black Ice GTX 360 Radiator connected to the Koolance MB-EVX58CF MoBO Cooling block and Alphacool Laing DDC-Pump 12V Ultra Water Tank. This is my first WC project but I have been doing a lot of trolling while waiting on this case.

I am not sure about video cooling yet but I plan on running 3 MSI N275GTX TwinFrozr OC GeForce GTX 275 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 and possibly a 9800GT for PhysX. I am hoping air cooling will be enough without voiding the vid cards warranty by putting a waterblock on each of them. Another reason I have been waiting so patiently on the Obsidian 800D.

I am still debating on the video card setup (yes I play a lot of hard core gaming) but the Mobo, memory, and processor are pretty set in my mind and the Frozrs scored almost as high as the 285. I already have the Corsair HX1000W, a BD writer and a BD reader and 2 1tb HD's sitting here staring me in the face and thinking of buying the Seagate 7200.11 and setting it up as a 300 GB or getting a 256 Corsair SSD when and if they are in stock at Newegg as my boot drive for Windows 7RC. I have built a few computers in my time but any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I just wish I could get the 800D in my hands so I could start the build.

:
The fan mount can be for intake or exhaust, depending on the users needs. The recommended configuration for the CORSAIR CWCH50 Water Cooler inside the 800D case is the same, cool air in. But, it will work either way. It works better pulling cool air in.

Note that it's recommended to get ONE 12 GB pack instead of TWO 6 GB packs.

Not trying to ruin Corsair's business or anything, but mate 12 gigs of RAM for gaming is a complete overkill.

If you do need 12 gigs of memory:
CORSAIR XMS3 12GB (6 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model HX3X12G1600C9
Seems like the choice for now, However, I'd wait until the case gets closer to being released and then see what the 12 GB options are, the 6x2GB kits still seem to be under development for the tighter timings versions.

Also I noticed that that package runs at 1.6v instead of the more common 1.65v and has 9-9-9-24 timings.

I'm guessing the timings aren't as tight as the voltage is lower, and that the voltage is lower do to more heat being generated with all 6 DIMMs being used, compared to 3 DIMMs.

If I had to guess, a DOMINATOR version with the larger heat spreaders will come out at some point and give better heat transfer, allowing acceptable temps for 6 DIMMs of 1.65v RAM that in turn will allow tighter timings.

I'd recommend:
1. Wait and see what's out when the case is released if you can wait that long, or
2. TR3X6G1600C8D for 6 gigs or
3. HX3X12G1600C9 for 12 gigs

Just don't go doubling up tri-channel ram just to get more ram size that you most likely don't need anyway that could result in lower performance due to more strain on the memory controller, as well as possible heat issues.

Default Thanks for the input

I originally wanted to go with the 12 gig kit but someone mentioned in one of the reviews it was cheaper to get 2 6 gig kits. I was wondering about the matched sets being needed or as long as you got one set for one channel and another identical set for the other channel if it made any difference? Thanks for the advice. I was wondering on the voltage as well as the Mobo says 1.65 volts also but on the other forums for the RAM, they state that the 760 takes the same RAM as the 759 which is the only one listed in the configurator. /shrug I will go back and look for the 12 gig kit but I am waiting on everything else until I get the case so I can make the proper measurements for the build and unless someone from Corsair has some insights into a new 12 gig kit, I guess I don't have much choice on which kit to get. Any news guys? I was also looking at the Corsair Cooling™ Ice T30 sub-ambient cooling subsystem for Dominator GT but would need a 12 gig Dominator kit unless it won't cool all of the RAM? Trubitar's Review looked like it would fit over 6 DiMMs.

I should've stated that I run many programs when I game ie Ventrillo, ACT, the web, and 2-3 instances/Accounts of the MMORPG's I play at the same time hence the desire for more RAM for the multitude of task I keep running.

I am still patiently waiting for this case so I can start this build and see what mods I need to make before putting it all together.

Thanks Guys

The cooling kits cover all 6 slots. Also, the memory needs to match regardless of the channel the memory is in.

Wired, How about organizing the Obsidian thread? I want to keep up on it but it is getting confusing. Perhaps a technical question field and then a product status update page,so I can easily see whta happening in regards to the product hitting the markt

Default 800D and the Domino ALC LCD

I see that this case has a side panel window, but I have the Domino ALC with the LCD on it, does anyone know if this window will allow for viewing of the LCD?

That depends on where that domino thing is. Can you post a picture?

I'm not sure if this has been covered. I know that there is a backplate for SSDs and I just wanted to know if the drive area at the bottom of the case supports SSDs aswell.
