Introduction (Cont’d)

You can install up to three 120 mm fans on the top panel from 800D – yes, it doesn’t come with these fans. A really bummer for a USD 300 product.

Corsair 800D comes with a huge air filter on its bottom panel, which is easily removable from outside the case. As you may suspect, this filter matches the power supply fan.

In Figure 7 we have the rear panel from 800D. As you can see, it is painted black and we wouldn’t expect anything less one a high-end case. It features a 140 mm fan (no technical information was provided) using a three-pin connector, so you have to install it directly on your motherboard, allowing you to monitor its speed. The slot covers are not meshed, but notice how this case has meshes on the top part, along the left side and right below the last expansion slots. Two holes protected by rubber covers for hoses from liquid cooling solutions are also available.

What is really unique on 800D is the mechanism for removing the side panels, which doesn’t use screws. To remove a side panel all you need to do is to push a button.

Now let’s take a look inside Corsair 800D.
