Corsair Enters Case Market, Launches Obsidian

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 2 comments

Computex isn’t just about what’s inside your machine and proof of that is Flash maker Corsair's first foray into the case market.

The company yesterday launched the Obsidian Series 800D which supports up to five 5.25-inch and six 3.5-inch drives in total and is compatible with ATX, Extended ATX, and Micro ATX motherboards. The 800D also boasts four hot-swap SATA bays, a cut-out section in the motherboard tray for easy CPU cooler installation and for all you cable management freaks: a unique cable management system that promises to decrease cable clutter and increase airflow.

With a total of seven positions for fans, this case uses a 140 mm fan with dust filter to bring in fresh air from the bottom, while hot air is pushed out at the back, near the top of the chassis. It also features a pre-drilled section in the roof to support single, dual and triple radiators, or up to three additional 120mm fans.

Expected availability is early July with a price tag a buck shy of $300. Who's tempted?

    If the fans aren't LED ones then I'm game. I did the metallic grey, black and blue lighting 8 years ago before it was cool and I'm a little tired of that now being standard option in cases - how can I do white and green if everything's black and blue?

    This case looks good for watr cooling but nothing special outside of those roof mounts.
