titleIt wasn’t that long ago that I took an in depth look at Corsair's Special Edition white version of their 600T. I was extremely impressed with the entire case. Because of that I thought we would backtrack a little bit and take a look at what started it all, Corsair's 800D from the Obsidian Series of cases. Being their flagship model it’s clear that it still has a lot to offer, lets dig in (finally) and see what  all of the fuss is about.

I freaking love this case. I have had mine for over a year now and I couldn't be happier.

I would agree on the cooling. With this case being out for awhile now people have started to see what you have to do to make it cool right. From what I have seen use the top 3 fans to push in, the back fan to push in and don't use the bottom fan. Also use the filter from the bottom on the top of the case so all of the air is still filtered.

If you are going to water cool your PC this is the case for you. If you like clean install's this is also the case for you.

Great review Wes!
