Corsair Obsidian 800D Chassis  (Source: Corsair)
Corsair 800D is Corsair's first entry into the PC chassis market

Corsair is a big name in the computer enthusiast industry and offers a wide variety of products from cooling to SSDs, RAM and flash drives. The company is among the most popular around for RAM that is used in gaming PCs and other computers.

Corsair announced its entry into the PC chassis market at Computex today with the unveiling of the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D chassis. The 800D is a full tower chassis made form steel and coated with a matte black finish inside and out.

The faceplate of the chassis is brushed aluminum and the case supports up to five 5.25-inch drives and six 3.5-inch drives total. The case is large enough to support ATX, Extended ATX, and micro ATX mainboards and has advanced features that Corsair says will make the 800D a PC builders dream.

Among the builder centric features of the case are four hot swap SATA bays and a cut out section in the mainboard tray that keeps users from having to remove the mainboard to change CPU cooling products. The case also has a cable management system to decrease cable clutter and allow for improved airflow. The entire chassis uses a tool-free design including the 5.25-inch drive bays.

The chassis has seven fan positions and three isolated cooling zones for the power supply, SATA hot swap bays and the main compartment. The SATA hot swap bay area is cooled by its own 140mm fan that exhausts hot air out of the rear of the chassis. The PSU gets its own dedicated intake and exhaust fan as well. The roof of the chassis is pre-drilled to support single, dual, and triple radiators or three more 120mm fans.

The chassis will be in stores in early July at an MSRP of $299.
