The Obsidian 900D comes factory stocked with 2 fans as standard – one 140mm intake fans located at the front (HDD bay area) and then there is a 120mm exhaust fan located in the rear. The chassis however supports no less than 5 fans. For the guys that like to go for liquid cooling, the Obsidian Series 350D offers enough space to include up to a 280mm radiator on the roof of the case, and a 120mm radiator in the rear exhaust fan mounting area. All-in-one-coolers such as the Hydro Series H55, H60, H80i, H100i, H90 and H110 are fully supported. When mounting a full length radiator on the roof of the case, the upper 5.25 inch optical drive bay will be partially blocked by the radiator though.
On the photo slash schematic above you can see the maximum length of radiator supported in each radiator mounting area, along with the maximum clearance for each position. If clearance is unlisted, it will depend on the other hardware which you have installed, such as fans and radiators. But let's just start off with unpacking the product and work our way up from thereon. We have lots to show you today.
