Kept the name from the old case, the beautiful Corsair Obsidian 450d. Started out in a Corsair 450d, reviews were great, Linus and HardwareChanuks didn't have much bad to say about it. 450d is sexy, has some of the absolute worst dust "filters" (more like rock meshes) no big deal I always use Silverstone's Ultra Fine, sucks *** at cable management in the back, the side panels warp slightly making it impossible to close the back panel without two people or mounting the case so you can push each end of the panel with both arms and a leg to slide the panel closed without one edge being popped out while closed.

DO NOT BUY A SAMSUNG 840 EVO!!! The degradation algorithm bug is still a problem, mine got so bad that the Performance Restoration software fails during the firmware update and I've read that the bug returns even for those who's Restoration worked. ALL OTHER SAMSUNG SSDs WORK FINE.

I loved the NZXT h440 but thought it was too big. I stuck with the 450d until I saw the NZXT S340. I was going to get the GTX 980 but my plans have changed to the 970. I may decide to save up a while more for the 980 or even until Nvidia's next GPU. GTX 1080? I wonder what the next naming scheme will be.
