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.
