and FVHaving spent a while with the 800D I can see how this was such a game changer for the case manufacturing industry. Corsair once again did what they do best, make a better mouse trap. My experience with the 800D was positive from opening up the...

Now after this review who would believe that the Obsidian 800D is in fact the very first PC Case Corsair has made? I know i wouldn't and it's a safe bet that most of you wouldn't either and with good cause since the Obsidian 800D can go up...

The Corsair 700D and 800D are top-end products; Corsair's design team hit virtually every target one could set for a full-tower ATX enclosure. The 800D is designed for the enthusiast that wants a top-end case with all the bells and whistles and...

When talking with Corsair about the inspiration behind the Obsidian 800D, we were given feedback from one of its principle designers, George Makris who had this to say about putting it all together:“Basically the Obsidian 800D came into being...

The Corsair Obsidian 800D is a lot of case for your money, in fact, for many people, it will be too large, but if you are planning a water cooled gaming rig, it could be perfect for you and here's why:The build quality is excellent, it's not...

Corsair's first chassis wins our hearts Go big or go home. That’s a lesson Corsair apparently took to heart for its first chassis, a 24x24x9-inch full-size enclosure that rivals Cooler Master’s ATCS 840 in size. Corsair’s Obsidian...

If you are the type to jump right to the conclusion of a review for a quick summary, I highly urge you to go back and read through each page of this write-up. This is a special chassis and you shouldn't sell yourself short with a brief conclusion...

We are used to high quality products from Corsair and it is nice to see that this also is the case for their first computer case. This truly is a case for enthusiasts and it is filled with lots of smart solutions. We love the fact that it is so...

We all know who the big case manufacturers out there are and we turn to them when it’s time to get a new case or purchase a case for a build. Not often a new company comes along and blows things out of the water. Well the case we are talking a...

The Obsidian 800D is Corsair’s first foray into a very competitive chassis market, and they've certainly made an impressive debut. As we’ve seen with Corsair’s move into other component markets, it appears they take their time to...

Corsair gets our praise as its debut Obsidian 800D model will surely enjoy a warm welcome. It seems to be the most versatile product among the three and is one of the few that offers a 4-disk rack (with the hot swap feature) accessed from...

Obsidian 800D is without doubt one of the best computer cases in 2009. Although the company has only recently entered this market and Obsidian 800D is their first product, Corsair’s engineers have already set high quality standards that many...

Corsair 800D is certainly a nice case, full of nice features, but we think it is highly overpriced, especially when you can get a Zalman MS1000-HS2, which has six hot-swap hard drive bays (two more than this model from Corsair), for USD 175. Of course...

If I could sum up the 800D in one word, it'd be substantial. The Obsidian is a no-nonsense, extra-large case with an impressively uninterrupted, blacked-out aesthetic both inside and out. Even though this is Corsair's first entry into the...

Overall then, the 800D is exactly what it says in the tin - an enthusiast case that's especially aimed at water coolers. It just seems to check all the boxes so well there's not much to add, really. The build quality and design are outstanding,...

With the Obsidian 800D Corsair really brings a near perfect and very innovative chassis to the market. Sure, it's a little expensive at 299 USD ~ € 225 - for most of you... but if you are keen on how exactly a PC should look, or if you are into...

Corsair has really done a great job with their first chassis. They have invested a lot of work and thought into the design and look of the chassis. Instead of going with elaborate looks, the Obsidian 800D goes for the understated look with clean lines...
