Corsair Obsidian Series 800D Case Review

Introduction

Corsair has recently released their first case, a USD 300 beast that is targeted to be the most complete case on the market. Let’s check it out.

800D impresses by its size and weight. At 35 lbs (15.8 kg) you will probably need to rent a forklift to move it around after you have all your parts installed inside. It could definitely be manufactured in aluminum, but if it is already expensive using steel, we don’t even dare to imagine how much it would cost if Corsair decided to go with an all-aluminum solution. The front panel and feet, however, are manufactured in aluminum.

The reviewed case comes with five 5.25” drive bays and four hot-swap drawers for hard disk drives that are accessible from the front panel.

Buttons and connectors are available on the top part of the front panel and hidden behind a door that mimics a disk drive bay, as you can see in Figure 4. This case comes with four USB connectors (separated in two sets of two) and one FireWire port. No eSATA port is available, which is unbelievable for a case from this price range.
