Excerpt: Over the years I have had quite the assortment of cases to choose from. One fact has always remained the same. I always go for larger cases that are easy on the eyes, feature rich, offer enough room for my goods and even the option to get my whole arm inside, if need be. This path has had me housing goods in cases from Antec, when the 900 was first released, after that I was in the original Cosmos S.
Video Perspective: Corsair Obsidian Series 900D Case
3 July 2013
Excerpt: Corsair likes to make cases, I think we know that much for sure by now. I mean, they have designed something on the order of 13 different chassis , not including color variations. The very first case Corsair shipped was the Obsidian 800D and at the time it was massive, just down right big.
Conclusion: The Corsair 900D is a chassis that needs very little introduction, it is one of the great lords of the chassis world and has been ever since it was first created. It is huge, it is expensive and it packs more features than most anything else on the market. It’s the prime example of what Corsair can do and while we’ve seen it at many trade shows and gaming events, packed to the brim with water-cooled graphics cards, we never really get to take a closer look at what it has...
Pros: High component compatibility, Extensive water cooling support, Room for massive amounts of storage, Modular HDD bays, Robust build quality, Huge side panel window, Dual side panel design allows for easy maintenance, Dust filters, Extensive cable routing options, Very easy to work with, Dual PSU support
Cons: Too big for most desk spaces, High price tag
Summary: We had to wait quite a while before the Corsair Obsidian 900D was released, but it's finally here and it was definitely worth the wait. From the get-go we say that this has been an intriguing experience. This is an extremely well built and sturdy super tower chassis, and despite its size it simply is a well thought through product. Heck, the sheer weight alone is already impressive.
