The long awaited Corsair Obsidian Series 800D Full Tower PC case is designed from the ground up for builders. With their first entry into the market, Corsair has released an elegant and feature-laden chassis that true enthusiasts will covet with abandon. Use the pre-cut cable routing holes (with included rubber grommets) to virtually guarantee an airflow-friendly clutter-free interior. Easily upgrade or swap out a hard drive with the fourdrive hot-swap drive bay. Save precious time by using the CPU backplate cutout to upgrade a CPU heatsink. Get rid of those heat concerns you might have, because the 800D features three-zone cooling to keep those hot hard drives out of the path of fresh air to your power supply, CPU, and GPU. And if that isn’t enough, the top comes pre-drilled for up to a triple 120mm radiator, ideal for watercooling. The Corsair Obsidian 800D Full Tower Case is what you’ve been waiting for.

Some things to consider with this case before you buy though:
- Does not have a USB 3.0 20-pin connection for the front USB 3.0 port. You have to use a connection from the back of the motherboard for it.
- The PCI slot covers are not vented for those wanting passive cooling from them without leaving them completely open, so I purchased some Silvestone covers that have vents for $10.
- If you want decent air cooling in this case, you need a lot of fans. It could cost an extra $100 in fans alone.
- If you use the fans the way Corsair tells you to (everything being exhaust except the bottom fan) expect a lot of dust in your system from creating a lot of negative air pressure and air being sucked in from every nook and cranny of the case. Go positive and add fan filters imo.
- Cable management behind the case can get tight since there's not enough space allowed between the back of the motherboard and the side of the case. So use zip ties to get all the cables as flat as possible.
Other than those things, I have thoroughly enjoyed my case. I had to invest a bit more than the initial $250 it cost, but I enjoyed being able to customize further. My system is now very cool and clean of dust.
I had to knock the ease of installation down one star because of the sheer weight and size of the case when trying to navigate around the case to get your wiring done correctly. This isn't a case you can lay down and get everything done. You need to be able to move around the case and get to things easily from all angles. I would suggest having a nice table in the center of a room so you can move around. You will get very tired of heaving this case around if you don't start off on a table or workbench.
The space and ease of routing cables inside this case is a dream. The use of the grommets to hide your cabling really puts this case in a class of its own. Although other case makers (ie. NZXT) have started to use similar grommets, their implementation is nowhere near as good as Corsair (ie. grommets come out easy and create more of a pain than they should). The only real issue I have is that the motherboard tray could have been moved maybe a half an inch forward to allow more space for cable routing behind the tray. With the sheer amount of cables I have hidden behind the tray, it took awhile to get things zip-tied in a way that would prevent the rear panel from flexing. The inclusion of the CPU power cable extender was a very nice touch, as I can almost guarantee that everyone will need to use it to reach where you need to.
I have never seen another case that allows so much room in the motherboard compartment to allow the components to breathe. I know this case is marketed as the ultimate case for watercooling, and isn't quite as good for air cooled systems. I would agree with this statement. I noticed that my temperatures rose nearly 5 degrees Celsius over my previous before I installed 3 ventilation fans along the top of the case. Once I had the fans installed, it corrected my temperature issues. This also made the case a little more noisy than my previous case, but still well worth it.
Once everything was installed, I would say this case was easily over 75 lbs. and is nearly as tall as my desk when sitting on the ground This is not a LAN case. This is the kind of case you build, put in place and enjoy it in all its glory. The side window is a nice addition allowing to see the beautiful install jobs you can do with this case. All the cabling is perfectly hidden with ease and makes things look ultra clean.
I'm still in awe of this case. If you are short on space, or need to move your pc often, I would steer you away from this case (something like the new Corsair 600t may be better). If you are going to go with an air cooled system, make sure you have fans to help with the ventilation of the case, and other than that, have fun with this thing. It truly is a work of art!
-Huge, room for anything you could ever put in it.
-Swappable drive bays, very neat but not necessary for me, I'll have 2 drives at most. Could be good for anyone running a home server and needs to roll a RAID config or something...
-Window lets you keep an eye on the expensive hardware you just put in it.
-Square, flat, minimalist design looks good anywhere (assuming it fits).
-USB 3.0 ports! :D
-A watercoolers dream
-Cables stay out of the way behind the panel
-Standoffs for motherboard already in place
-Fits my gigantic Phanteks cpu cooler
-Only one so far, lack of 2.5" drive bay for my SSD, this is easily correctable and I didn't do enough research when I bought it (my bad =P). Not even a real problem, just thought I'd mention it. To correct this problem I recommend searching Amazon for: [Newer Technology AdaptaDrive 2.5" to 3.5" Drive Converter Bracket]. It will fit in your removable bays and will turn your 2.5" into 3.5" no problem.
When researching this case, I discovered many people did not think air cooling to be a viable option with the case. It is mostly advertised as a watercooling case BUT I figured it'd make a nice vertical cooling case (and that's what I plan on doing). I have seen viable air cooling configurations out there just do a decent Google search for them.
Buy yourself some 6-32 1/4" screws if you don't have some already, Startech usually sells in packs of 50-100 on Amazon for under $5.
