We’re more likely to associate Corsair with computer memory than anything else, so it is a pleasant surprise to see the company roll out the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D chassis at Computex – something different from the standard RAM fare we’ve been getting. The 800D is a full tower chassis that relies on steel as its material of choice, and comes coated in a handsome matte black finish, within and without. Inside, you can hold up to five 5.25″ drives and half a dozen 3.5″ drives, where it is able to handle ATX, Extended ATX and micro ATX mainboards without a problem. Other builder-friendly features include four hot swap SATA bays and a cut out section in the mainboard tray, doing away with the hassle of removing the mainboard to change CPU cooling products in the future. More importantly is the cable management system that helps keep everything in an orderly manner while improving airflow. Expect to see the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D Chassis hit stores early July for $299.
