The Obsidian 800D tower chassis

Corsair has officially announced its first PC chassis that will be known as the Obsidian 800D and this is the one that we´ve had the chance to see at Cebit.

This big full tower chassis is made out of brushed aluminum with steel structure, has five external 5.25-inch bays and total of six 3.5-inch bays where four are made as internal hot-swap SATA HDD bays that reachable from the front panel. It also features front IO panel with audio, FireWire and four USB ports, and comes with removable CPU back plate and more than enough room to maneuver for even larger E-ATX motherboards.

The cooling is done by three 140mm fans with room for additional four 120mm ones. As you can see from the picture below, it has more holes for cable routing than any other case that we have seen, and all of these have a rubber shielding.

Corsair always marketed this as a premium product and it should start selling sometimes next month with a US $299 price tag. It looks cool as you can see it below, but definitely not $299 cool.
