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.
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.
Conclusion: Would-be buyers of the Obsidian Series 900D certainly won't be left wanting in terms of size, but the question isn't do you need all this room, it's what will you do with it? Today's CPUs and GPUs are efficient enough to work well in tight confines and the industry as a whole is transitioning to smaller, lighter and more efficient computing devices. Heck, even Nvidia's most extreme graphics card is championed as an ideal solution for small-form-factors.
Corsair Obsidian 900D Case Review: Think Big, That's Only HALF as Large
16 April 2013
Conclusion: It should go without saying at this point that Joe Everybuilder isn't going to be interested in spending $349 to cool his single CPU, single GPU, air-cooled build. The Corsair 900D positively dwarfs our full fat testbed and really, it would take serious work to fill up this case anyhow. My primary concern when reviewing most cases is ultimately how they perform thermally and acoustically, with aesthetics taking a bit of a backseat.
Excerpt: So if you've not heard about the new Obsidian what rock have you been hiding under? It's been all over the web since it first got seen properly at CES. This does mean this is the replacement for the 800D, which when first released and still to this day a case that we were not and are not, all that impressed with here at OC3D. So in our eye we have several areas that we will be being very strict with, air flow and layout being the top of our list.
