I'd like to hear about it from poeple who own one for a while. Feedback on neweggs and PC website are often "first impressions". So I'd like to hear your opinion poeple.

Also if any of you did any water cooling on one I'd like to hear about it plz.

If it mather I plan to put two HD 7970 with an i5-3570k (I'll go with the i5-2500k if they don't release ivy bridge by the end of april) with some heavy water cooling (will run fans at low speed)

Well from what I have heard, the Obsidian 800D is one of the best for watercooling (custom stuff, not closed loop for ex. h100, h80, h60). It absolutely is phenominal in looks, performance, and price. How much money are you looking to spend on cooling? You want to get ek water blocks for your two 7970's, because when I see "heavy water cooling" I don't want it to be some crap h100.

Custom watercooliong, dual pomps, reservoir etc and since I want to run all fan on low speed (and I want to keep room in case I add a third 7970 before they get discontinued) I'll probably go with 2x 480mm rads. Will be my first attemp at watercooling so I'm not sure yet about what I will have in the final but I'm not afraid to blow 1000$ on watercooling alone.

The only reason I don't go with a caselab or any other "custom" made case is because I think they look weird. I thought about the cosmos 2 for a while but I do realy want a "glass" window.

well i doubt that 2x 480mm rads will fit in 800D internally.some thing like this is a good idea for internal setup-

I dont plan to put both rad inside. I just doubt that a lower set up would work to cool 3 hd7970 and an OC i5 on a silent level.

I've got the 700D as I was going to go the custom water-loop route. It's got space on top for a 360mm rad, one on the back for a 120mm rad and if you were pushing it, space inside for a 120mm rad. Plenty of internal space for thicker rads and for putting in pumps, reservoirs etc.

The 700D and 800D are the same case, except the 700D doesn't have a side window or hot swap bays.
