From the first moment the Corsair Obsidian 800D was rumoured, the internet has been abound with speculation on just how great this case could be. Well the day is finally here where Hardware Canucks gets to show you. In their first ever release of a chassis product, Corsair has made headlines with a case that delivers not only their renowned quality and design, but incorporates features that are tailored from feedback received from enthusiasts like you!

The company has gone to great lengths to ensure that this case it up to the highest standards. The body is constructed of a solid steel and boasts an immaculate paint job inside and out, keeping a uniformed appearance. The brushed aluminum front panel accentuates the the simple yet powerful design, that make this case jaw dropping.

The have overlooked nothing, every minutiae has been addressed. The cable routing utilizes grommeted holes throughout the case, allowing for wires to be run up the back and come out right where they are required, giving the case a virtually cable-less look. This cable cleanliness allows for uninhibited airflow throughout the 3 primary chambers for a flawless cooling design.

Corsair has also chosen to go a step further - beyond making just a gorgeous case - and included some practical additions. The front of the case includes 4 hot swappable drive bays, seamlessly hidden behind a front accessible panel. Additional, the Obsidian 800D was designed for watercooling, in fact it begs for it. There is spacing at the top of the chassis to internally mount a triple 120MM radiator. Along with this, they have included tubing holes in the middle of the case for routing any components that are in the bottom.

Now, this all comes with a little higher price tag, but the chassis is far above anything else in its budget category, it really is in a league of its own. The Corsair Obsidian 800D is on track to be the case of the year, and make its mark in the "must have" cases of all-time.
