(900D) Project Flatline: Beauty and Performance in the Same Box
By Mike Clements, on December 2nd, 2013
Not every great looking rig is a top performer and not every top performing rig has great looks. While browsing the Overclock.net forums build logs, I stumbled across a rig that definitely has both.
The Bucket List: A Corsair 900D Rig with Acrylic Tubing and Custom Water Cooling
By Mike Clements, on October 30th, 2013
The 900D "Bucket List" build by Corsair forum member "managerman" is the first time I have seen a computer build on someone's bucket list. I suppose a monster water cooled rig with custom acrylic tubing is as good as any for a bucket list item.
Corsair 900D Mod: Bombs Away by Mnpctech.com
By Mike Clements, on September 18th, 2013
Mnpctech.com has dropped a bomb into our forum with owner Bill Owen's latest creation, "Bombs Away". Bombs Away is inspired by the legendary Memphis Belle B17 Flying Fortress featured in the documentary "A Story of a Flying Fortress". The B17 is one of the most iconic aircraft of WWII and the Corsair Obsidian Series 900D is a great case with which to build a tribute. There is a fantastic Bombs Away build log thread in the Corsair forum.
Many B17s had great nose art on their forward fuselage. Here's a rendering Bill used to visualize his concept for the Bombs Away build. This great picture was originally created by Mitch O'Connell and the talented Corsair design team customized it..
Obsidian Series 900D FAQ's
By Jeff Checchi, on July 25th, 2013
With the recent release of the Obsidian Series 900D case there have been a few frequently asked questions which I would like to address in this blog.
1. How do I remove the top cover?
The complete top cover comes off in one piece; however you must remove the side panels first. Once the side panels are released (via the push buttons on the rear of the case), and removed, the top panel will slide off toward the windowed side panel side of the case. See the picture below which shows the direction to slide the top cover.
With some 900Ds it may have a very snug fit, and if it feels difficult to slide off, then you may just tap it from the rear side panel side with a hammer or screwdriver handle to get a bit more leverage, but if you use a tool you will want to cover the surface with a cloth so you do not scratch the case.
