For a long time Corsair has been able to sit on the
sidelines and ponder ideas, as well as seeing others fail and succeed with what
innovations have already been placed into chassis design. Taking this giant
step onto the scene with their first chassis design, Corsair had already set
the quality bar pretty high with many of their other products, so they wanted
to make sure this carries on to all pieces of their product line.
Since CES 09 we have been seeing videos and leaked
images, as well as a couple reviews, all of which looked gorgeous to me
personally. I already have high expectations of the multi-compartment cooling
zones, and the superb wire management options I have seen. All black cases hold
a special place in my heart already, but I am looking at this chassis through
my own eyes this time and get a real chance to see what all the hype is about.
Today we got a good look at the Obsidian 800D full tower chassis from Corsair,
which they were nice enough to send along a little early. Let’s sift through
the specs and get down to the basics and see if Corsair passes all the tests. @ TweakTown
