You need some extra space? We got that.
Corsair likes to make cases, I think we know that much for sure by now. I mean, they have designed something on the order of 13 different chassis, not including color variations. The very first case Corsair shipped was the Obsidian 800D and at the time it was massive, just down right big.
Today though we are doing a preview of an even bigger case: the Obsidian 900D. Seriously, the Obsidian 350D can nearly fit inside the primary bay of this case...
Measuring 27 inches tall, 25 inches deep and more than 10 inches wide, the 900D will dominate just about any landscape you put it on, including a desk as you can tell in the video above.
It's height and depth give the 900D space for more processing and cooling components than you will likely ever really need to use, unless you're one of those few crazies out there. I mean, just looking in the window below you'll see we have a standard ATX motherboard installed and it is just dwarfed.

Corsair had quite a few announcements this CES 2013, but none were as big as this one. The rumors had been swirling about a massive case in the bowels of the Corsair headquarters, and today we get to see the reality of the situation.
It truly is a monster.
The Obsidian 900D is so large a previous gen 650D can fit inside it. It supports up to two power supplies, 15 fan mounts, 15 potential drives (when buying an optional, extra cage), four removable dust filters, and five watercooling point mounts.
Have I mentioned this is a big case?
It is built entirely out of a steel and cast aluminum frame, which is good considering how big this case is. Hopefully there will be enough lateral stiffness so the case does not warp or bend once it is fully loaded.
Availabilty and price are still a bit up in the air, but expect it the first half of this year. Expect it to be pricey. Overkill at any price? Sign me up.
