    Default Obsidian 800D SSD Bay Screws

    I see almost everyone running into this issue while building a rig with the Obsidian 800D case and a SSD drive.

    The screws don't come with the case.
    The screws don't come with the SSD either.

    I bought the following screw that worked on the Samsung 256GB SSD.



    The silver screw on the left is the one you need, I bought it from Fry's.
    The black screw on the right is the standard HDD bay screw comes with the case and it doesn't work.


    Below is the picture of the package for the screw that works with the SSD.



    It's a tight fit and you can see the bottom of the screw from the side as it goes down so make sure it's not too tight. And yeah you don't need a flat head screw. With this ball head screw you have to push the drive down a little bit as you insert it into the bay and it fits perfectly. I'll try to post picture of the SSD with the screw in it.

    - Thanks!

    Yeah it is seeing as I did the review and didn't have any problems installing the SSD, unless they changed screws from when the case was fist released ?

    You most likely did what I did, used what you had and didn't even open the bag of screws. I'll have to look for the bag and see what they gave me.

    Just checked the bag of screws that came with my 800D and they were the correct ones. Received my case about 3 weeks ago.

    Gotcha, so it looks like what Cartic received was an error and hopefully not the norm as mine were the right ones.

    Where you able to use the same screw for the HDD and SSD?

    May be the Samsung SSD requires a non-standard screw? But I doubt that because the drive tray and the SSD aligns pretty well but the screws won't fit.

    This is the SSD I have
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820147064

    I got the case around 11/17.

    According to the documentation with the 800D it ships with 36 Hard Drive and Motherboard screws. If I remember right there are different mounting screws for a 3.5 inch drive and a 2.5 inch drive. While they don't specify 3.5 inch, it looks like that is what the mean when they say Hard Drive. There was a post on the Corsair forum that said the correct screws for a SSD ship with the case and I can't remember if I used some I had or from the case. If I get so time I will check.
