Corsair Obsidian 900D review: taking it to the next level
16 April 2013
Excerpt: In 2009 Corsair introduced its first computer chassis, the Obsidian 800D, which immediately set a new standard; four years later, the 800D is still relevant. Still, it was time for an update, and today we will take a closer look at the Obsidian 900D, which raises the bar even higher.
Summary: The Corsair Obsidian 800D Case is one massive full tower case. It comes with a front aluminum bezel, hot swappable drive bays, 3 140mm fans, large interior, cable management, hole of motherboard tray for cooler retention plate, fits a large radiator and much more.
Excerpt: When you think of Corsair what usually comes to mind first? Memory? Power supplies? Solid State Drives? How about a world class, enthusiast inspired, full tower case? That is correct. Corsair has released its first chassis, ever, in the form of the Obsidian 800D.
Summary: If you are the type to jump right to the conclusion of a review for a quick summary, I highly urge you to go back and read through each page of this write-up. This is a special chassis and you shouldn't sell yourself short with a brief conclusion on a case that deserves so much more.
Conclusion: We are used to high quality products from Corsair and it is nice to see that this also is the case for their first computer case. This truly is a case for enthusiasts and it is filled with lots of smart solutions. We love the fact that it is so spacey that you never feel cramped when working in it.
Summary: It Looks Great!
Wow when you close this system up and take a look at it, it just looks great! It looks very professional, but at the same time it is going to catch someone’s attention. You look in through the side panel and can see your components inside and barely any cables at all!
Pros: – Awesome design, – Tons of cable management holes, – Easily installation, – 4 hotswappable bays, – Great cooling
Summary: The Obsidian 800D is easily one of the best quality cases we have ever reviewed, thanks to Corsair’s extreme attention to detail. While it is not the best all-round case, it is one of the best quality full tower cases we have come across.
Summary: Corsair 800D is certainly a nice case, full of nice features, but we think it is highly overpriced, especially when you can get a
, which has six hot-swap hard drive bays (two more than this model from Corsair), for USD 175.
