Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D Super Review:
If you are a lover of a heavy water-cooling gaming PC or you want to build a large water-cooling PC with enough room to carry two motherboards at a time then this Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D Super is the best option for you. We know that water cooling cases are very large and this case is specially built for water cooling purposes, so it is a large case.
This case is the product of corsair, they always keep their products easy to use and pretty clean, so in this case, you will get an extra room, and also it will give you a proper and Clear View inside the case without any nonprofessional cable management. This case is completely made of steel and aluminum, and it is a product of corsair so we know there will be no issues in the build quality of this product. This case has beautiful tempered glass, and the front glass of the case is having a little gap from the casing body which will let the airflow through the case easily.
This case has a solid dust filter that will stop the dust from going inside the case, which can also slow down the speed of your components in the PC, and this dust filter will help in keeping the PC clean. The dust filter is available in two major locations, the top of the case and on the front of the case, these dust filters are completely magnetic and they can be removed and put into the case so easily just by sliding them.
This case has a professionally built internal structure, there is a gap between all the major components’ positions in this case which will make the installation and unplugging of the hardware so easy. On the front, you will get a large fan bracket that can hold up to eight large fans of 120mm, and on the top of the case it has a fan bracket for 140mm fans, which can carry 3 fans, so in total, you can have 11 large RGB Fans in this case for your ultimate water cooling setup.
And for back exhaust fans, you will get two slots where you can put two 120mm fans for exhaust, but if you want to put 140mm fans on the exhaust slots then it won’t work because the width of that place is not wide enough to hold 140mm fans.
Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D Super has RGB software which is known as Corsair Commander pro, the work of the software is to give controls to the RGB lighting and the liquid cooling setups. From where you can control the fans, the RGB lighting, and the logos.
Dual Motherboard Support:
Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D Super is capable of holding two motherboards or dual systems at a time, it has room for two motherboards. The first motherboard what are the main motherboard can be e an extended ATX motherboard, which is the maximum size motherboard, and for that, this case comes with 8 expansion slots. The second motherboard will be a mini ITX motherboard, which comes with two expansion slots, and the PSU of that motherboard will be pushed to the bottom, so both motherboards will have separate PSU locations.

Dark Base PRO 900 Black Rev. 2 Review:
be quiet! Dark Base PRO 900 Black Rev. 2 is an enhanced version of Dark base PRO 900 Rev 1, both have a very little price difference maybe around $20 to $50 only. The previous Rev 1 has a fan speed of 1000 RPM but this one comes with a fan speed of up to 1600 RPM, which means the fan speed is increased by almost 40% which is a good improvement to the case. Discuss has solid build quality, and it has no compromise on durability.
Design And Build:
The overall case is made up of Steel, plastic, and Aluminium. It comes in two colors one is black and another one is orange+black, orange, and black because their combination gives an attractive and awesome look to the case. On the front, you will get a dust filter which is just behind the aluminum door of the front panel, and in the back of the dust filter you will get silent wings non-RGB fans, both those fans are having an RPM of 1600, and they come with the case itself.
I/O and Wireless Charging:
On the I/O front panel, you will get 2 USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 2 port, Power and Reset buttons, headphones, and microphone jacks, and on the top of the case, there is a Wireless charging port where you can place your phone and charge it without any wire connection.
Inside Room Of The Case:
The inner view of the case is pretty free and clean but the room inside the case is not enough like Corsair 1000D because that case has around 5cm free space between the side panels and motherboard tray of the case and in this case you will get up to 2cm free room.
If we talk about the drives trays of this case then it is capable to carry up to 10 SSDs drives or 5 Harddisk drives, and furthermore, you can put more SSDs and HHD into this case, the cages come with this case in the box so you won’t need to buy them separately.
8 Fans and Tempered Glass:
This case comes with complete tempered Glass on the side panel, which will reduce the noise of the fans inside the case and also will give a premium look to the case. This case comes with an additional power supply shroud as compared to the previous Rev 1. This case can support up to 8 fans and the previous Rev 1 was just limited to carrying 4 fans at a time, so this is a nice upgrade for this case.
This case comes with a fan and the RGB controller hub that has 8 PWM fan headers, which means it can support up to 8 fans at a time. The feats of this case are completely covered by rubber, this rubber coating will reduce the noise and vibration coming to the case, and keep the casing completely stable. On the complete bottom of the case, you will get a full-size dust filter that will cover the complete width of the case, to keep the casing dust-free.

Features Of The Case:
This cache comes with a tempered glass side final and also a front panel, which makes it a 3-sided tempered glass case, on the other hand, the older variant of this casing was having normal aluminum Glass on the front panel. The price difference between both is almost double, the SE version is very expensive as compared to the older Non-SE version.

Cooler Master Cosmos C700P Review:
Cooler Master Cosmos C700P Black Edition E-ATX Full-Tower is one of the best water cooling cases by the cooler master, it was released about 4 years ago but is still on the top 10 list of the most recommended cases for water cooling and good airflow cases.
It has complete tempered glass on the left-side panel on the right-side panel is metallic, the tempered glass gives a completely polished look and also gives reflection in that glass on the corners the glass has a beautifully curved shape which improves its look more even.
Transparency Of The Glass:
The transparency of the glass is a little lower as compared to other tempered glass water cooling cases, because of that you will feel difficulty while seeing the inside component of the PC but you can easily see your RGB lighting and liquid cooling because they will glow enough to get shown from outside, but this is a bad point about this case though.
It has the most advanced and beautifully managed front I/O panel, on the front I/O panel it has 4 USB 3.0 ports, a single USB Type-C port, a power button and a reset button, a high and low button for fan speed and the last button it has on Front I/O panel is for changing the colors of the RGB lighting of this case.
Room For Radiator:
Cooler Master Cosmos C700P has a single 3.5 inches drive bay on the front panel but there is a constraint and that is if you want to have a 360mm Radiator then you will not able to use both the radiator and this drive bay at a time because it will conflict with the radiator fan and you will have to remove the drive bay for using the radiator.
On the front panel, there is one dust filter that is just covering that drive bay, and on the top of the case, it has one more dust filter which will cover the complete top area of the case and will prevent the dust from going inside the case.
It has one SSD mount on the corner of the shroud but the bad point about this case is that it only has 2 drive brackets which are lower in number as compared to its competitors also the previous version of cooler master cosmos has about 11 Drive brackets which mean 8 more than this one.
- Full Modular Design can be assembled in various configurations
- Additional components available through Cooler Master for full customization
- Large flex-mount rails for additional drive trays and liquid cooling components
- Supports motherboards up to 12.3â€
- Well-crafted and the metalic made body
- Stock configuration supports only three internal drives
- Mediocre performance when using stock cooling

NZXT H510i Compact ATX Mid Tower Review:
NZXT H510i Compact ATX Mid Tower Casing the first thing about this case is it is closed with thumbscrews which won’t require any screwdriver, and if you talk about the front panel of this Casing then it is completely made of glass. This case has RGB strips spread all over the case when spread on the corners of the case and one at the top of the case will give up a full glowing and colorful look to the case.
In this case, there is an option to mount your GPU vertically so it will give a unique look and clearance. The length of the GPU can be a maximum of up to 381mm which is quite enough space for any GPU. Overall this casing is one of the most recommended and best ATX cases so it can also be a good choice for custom water cooling builds because it has complete tempered glass on the side panel and has enough room for radiators.
2 Pre-built 120mm Fans:
NZXT H510i – CA-H510i-W1 – Compact ATX Mid-Tower PC Gaming Case comes with free-built two 120mm non-RGB fans, one is on the rear of the case, and another one is on the top of a case, but for the front, you will have to buy your own fans.
Amazing Cable Management:
The cable management of this casing is so perfect because of the white stripe, which will carry all the extra cables inside and will hide it from any eye vision. And you can also move the position of that strip according to your need and also there are extra cable tracks that can hide all your 24-pins or some additional cables which will provide a completely clean internal look to the Pc.
Large Mounting Space:
In the front area of this case, there are 2 SSDs or HDD(hard-drive) Mounts and on the backside, there are two more hard drive trays to carry your large hard drives. For fan mounting you can have two 120mm Fans or two 140mm Fans at the front of the case which will be giving all the airflow pressure.
Airflow & Front Panel:
The airflow of this case is just normal not very perfect and not extra bad because it doesn’t have enough space to push all the air out, the space on the corners of the casing is so little so it will be hard to flow all the air out easily. On the front input-output panel you will get used to 3.0 and USB Type-C also an audio jack and microphone jack, and there will be a power button too.
- Quiet and cool enough
- Itâ€™s so easy to keep your build looking clean and organized
- Beautiful Design
- Very affordable price
- Useful features
- Clean, sharp design
- Cable trenches for easy cable management
- Two retail-grade fans included

Phanteks Enthoo 719 Review:
Phanteks Enthoo 719 is one of the best full Tower cases specially built for water cooling and great airflow. It is also one of the largest dual systems with a dual PSU gaming case. It has room to carry up to 11 SSDs or 12 hard drives at a time.
Top and Front Panel:
On the top of the case, there are two screws that are holding the top cover of the case so you can just open the screws by hand and slide back the top cover and you will get it opened, and there you will find the top dust filter which is necessary for preventing the case from dust and will let clean your case easily from dust.
Side Panel (Tempered Glass):
On the front same sliding is required for opening the front panel, and there you will get the second dust filter. And on the left panel which is a complete tempered glass, you can just open it by sliding it like a door because that is having a hinge that is linking it to the case.
Dual Motherboards Support:
Phanteks Enthoo 719 supports the following motherboards on the primary location, ATX, EATX, uATX, mini ITX, and SSI EEB. And on the secondary motherboard spot, it only can support a Mini ITX motherboard. For both motherboards, this case comes with dual PSU locations where you can have a separate PSU for each motherboard. The second alternative is that you can buy a PSU with Dual System support so then you can easily connect two motherboards from a single power supply.
Phanteks Enthoo 719 on the primary motherboard you can Mount your GPU horizontally and vertically as you want, but for the secondary motherboard you can only Mount your GPU vertically and in vertical Mount, there is always some wobbling with the GPU so it won’t be stable like the horizontal mount.
GPU Slots and Space:
There are 8 slots on the primary motherboard GPU mount for horizontal GPU mounting, and for vertical mounting on the primary motherboard, it has only three slots. On the secondary motherboard location that is only a vertical mount, so it will also have only three slots for the GPU. The maximum GPU length on this case will be up to 500mm, and if you install a side radiator on the case then you will get about 350mm space which is also enough for any large GPU.
Phanteks Enthoo 719 comes with 4 radiator locations, one on the front, one on the top, one on the bottom of the case, and the last one on the side panel. The bottom one can support 360mm 240mm and 120mm length radiators, and if you are installing a radiator on the bottom and still wants a dual system setup then you will have to make sure to use a small length radiator instead of a tall radiator.
Top and Side Radiators:
On the top chassis, it can have up to a 360mm radiator and a 140mm radiator on the back of the case. The largest radiators are supported on the front of the case and on the side panels, which are 480mm and 420mm. On the front I/O unit this case has 4 USB ports, one USB Type-C port, an audio and microphone jack, a power and reset button along a couple of RGB control buttons.
No Pre-built Fans:
Phanteks Enthoo 719 has no pre-built fans, so if you want to put RGB fans or even need to buy them separately, you can have four 140mm Fans on the front and 3 140mm fans on the top of the chassis. Overall the case is one of the best large water cooling cases which can be built so beautifully if you spend pretty much an amount on it.
- Solid build quality
- Dual system support
- Plenty cable management room
- Great value for money
- Attractive design
- Not extra expensive
- Extra Tall Case

Phanteks Enthoo Pro Review:
Phanteks Enthoo Pro ATX Chassis is a dual system and liquid cooling supported case, 8 it has beautiful tempered glass on the side panel and on the front, it has a mesh front panel, and behind the mesh panel there is a pre-included 200mm fan, but if you want to have two fans instead of this single fan, then you can remove it and put your own 120 mm or 140 mm fans on the front panel.
Dust Filters All Over:
The cache has dust filters all over but some are very small so maybe dust can go inside the case from the corners. It has a dust filter on the front, a couple of dust filters on the bottom of the case, one on the bottom of the case which is a large dust filter, and the last largest does filter is on the top of the case.
On the top of the case, you can have a couple of 140 mm or 120 mm radiators, and on the rear side, it has included a fan that can be placed or moved up and down according to your comfort.
On the rear side, you will have PCIe slots or GPU slots for horizontal GPU mount, And it has a tube reservoir mount for setting up liquid cooling in your build. This case can support any large GPU without any issue, having a maximum length of up to 472mm.
The bad point about this case is that the quality is not good enough for a durable case or valuable case because this case attracts fingerprints and is also easy to get scratched, which gives an awful look to the case, and after some time you will have to clean it again and again.
Great Cable Management:
This case has one of the best cable management, on the backside, you will see all the cables are pre-mounted and tightly wrapped with the Phanteks strips for avoiding the cables to produce any kind of disturbance or bloating the usable area of the case, and this cable management will make your build very clean and clear.
