We were beginning to wonder if Corsair would be joining the others in making a splash at Computex, and obviously the answer is "yes." The company is catching eyes of hardcore gamers with its $299 Obsidian Series 800D high-performance chassis, an absolutely massive case designed to hold more components than most computer users could ever dream of.

Indeed, even Corsair admits that this shell is engineered for the "enthusiast market," with Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing, confessing that it's a "true builder's case." He goes on to say: "It will reliably last you through years of motherboard, power, memory, cooling and component upgrades, while its advanced features and superior cooling performance allows you to build your ultimate dream system."

The case itself sports a steel structure, a matte black coating and a brushed aluminum faceplate. Inside, you'll find room for up to five 5.25" drives, six 3.5" drives and it's compatible with ATX, Extended ATX, and Micro ATX motherboards. You'll also find four hot-swap SATA bays, a cut-out section in the motherboard tray for easy CPU cooler installation and a unique cable management system that decreases cable clutter to increase airflow. Oh, and everything is "tool free," so taking it apart and putting it back together shouldn't be too much of a pain. For those worried over air flow, don't. There is room for seven fans in total as well as three isolated cooling zones for the power supply, hot-swap SATA bays and main compartment. It'll be available for the DIY crowd next month.

Seems like Lian-Li now has some competition.  Nice looking case.
