Another tower case from Corsair
The guys from Hardwareluxx.de managed to score some info on the new Corsair Obsidian 700D case that will most likely be officially unveiled at Cebit show. The new Obsidian 700D looks a lot like the Obsidian 800D, the first case from Corsair, but with couple of modifications which should make the new Obsidian 700D a bit more affordable considering the high price of the 800D.
The new Obsidian is a tower size case made out of steel frame and aluminum face and most probably side design. Its dimensions are 609x609x229mm (HxLxW) and it features five exposed 5.25-inch bays. The insides include room for up to six 3.5-inch HDDs or six 2.5-inch ones, features tool-free installation for optical drivers and removable CPU backplate. Unlike the 800D, the new 700D doesn't have a front mounted door for HDD accessibility and hot-swat feature.
The Obsidian 700D should pack enough cooling power as it comes with three 140mm fans placed in front, back and on top.
The price hasn't been announced but we guess that it should be at least a bit lower than the €220 which is the average price of the Obsidian 800D.
