This case is quiet, I mean really quiet! I really like how easy it is to clean the filters, and the real bright Pwr switch light. It's the little things for me.

I purchased the Intel cooler separately from the CPU as the old push-pin stock HSF that originally came with my CPU was getting a bit worn as I like to experiment with boards. NE has the cooler for about $90.

Great push guys, really love this case!
Thanks Jim.
Good to hear they're quiet.

Re: New Corsair Obsidian 550D!

It's good. Don't get caught-up in the misinformation about write degradation. I don't trust too much from the websites anymore as many of them take advertising dollars.

I use ATTO because it's third party. I don't trust the OEM's to give unbiased data!

But if your worried, my old Intel 510 is available for sale! SSDlife gave it a minimum of eight years to go. Good price. PM if interested.

Re: New Corsair Obsidian 550D!

Gee, sounds opposite to what some are saying. You have the data, and that's the deciding point.

Enjoy.

Re: New Corsair Obsidian 550D!

I'll 3rd it lol. I am still enamored with my Corsair 650D case. One of the features that moved me to the Antec DF-85 was the hot-swap SATA drive bay on top. Well the Corsair 650D does the same thing only much nicer looking and hidden inside the case and has many other great features. Beside the 550D not having the SATA hot-swap bay and a side panel window I think it is a perfect case. It has newer and better features than the 650D even.

Re: New Corsair Obsidian 550D!

It's as close to perfect for me as it can get. Can't think of one thing wrong. The side-window and hot swap while appealing to many, is of little use to me. I wanted a large quiet case and that's what I got.

I'm very happy.

Re: New Corsair Obsidian 550D!

I'm glad you got a new case there JT, you deserve it. Good ole Antec was a true friend for years and years but they are not as enthusiast or as high quality as Corsair. The 650D is the last tower case I will be buying...period.
