Corsair enters PC chassis market
Makes official entry into the PC chassis market with the launch of its Obsidian Series 800D tower case
Enthusiast hardware manufacturer Corsair has made its official entry into the PC chassis market with the launch of its Obsidian Series 800D tower case. Corsair has a strong reputation in the enthusiast community for producing quality memory, flash drives and most recently SSD drives.
The 800D is a full tower chassis that is made from steel and features a matte black finish on the outside as well as on the inside. The case features a brushed aluminium faceplate and can support a maximum of five 5.25-inch bays and six 3.5-inch bays.
The case is designed to accommodate micro-ATX, ATX and Extended ATX motherboards and the firm claims the case has advanced features that will make the 800D a computer builder’s dream. Other features include four hot swappable Serial ATA bays, a cable management system and a tools-free design.
Overclockers and enthusiasts looking to cool their ultra-high-end rigs can also look forward to seven fan positions, whilst the roof of the case is pre-drilled to accommodate single-, dual- or triple-fan radiators. The chassis is expected to arrive in stores by early July and will likely retail for a MSRP of US $299.
