    We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable, has...

    That is Beautiful. Time to start saving up for the case and the slight addition to my power bill. But it will be glorious.

    I don't want to nitpick, but I will. The panels don't match the front mask at all(they aren't flush with it), for that amount of money it's sloppy work.

    Yeah it does look like crap -- maybe it wasn't pushed all the way in for the photos?

    As I said in the other thread they are up for sale on Corsairs site today but it's shipping direct from China for $200 each. They will obviously get more in stock at a different time for way cheaper, Corsair gave people the option and a bunch of people were willing to spend $200 to ship it.

    Anyway I think the case looks awesome and I'm going to eventually pick one up when it's in stock at a reasonable price.

    Thanks for the review.

    Makes me wonder if it's worth grabbing an EVGA SR-2, one of these and a pair of dual socket Xeons, another H100i and another 24 GB of RAM...

    That is a very nice watercooling case, The 2x480 rads is more than enough cooling for anything.

    Pretty epic.

    How much is it then? I reckon around £350-£400.

    Well matey I'll be coming to you for advice but everything is up in the air at the moment as we are buying a new house and it needs lots of work doing to it. So I may not be able to buy everything I want straight away. I think I will be ok to secure the case and then do my research and buy the loop bit by bit. I will have 2 bathrooms a kitchen some with some structural work and a new boiler to pay for, oh and redecorating an entire house!

    Love this case though.

    Beautiful case. Don't think I'll ever own it though, I just couldn't justify that money. But really nice.

    If I ever but another large case, it will be this one! Though I can't see me getting rid of the Switch anytime soon, but man it would be great to have a couple of 480 beasts cooling everything!

    No probs mate, Theres a handful of us always at hand to help out.
    Most of it is just common sense and taking your time, Im sure you will be fine and it will be a great build when finished.

    Good luck with the house, I know what your going through, worth it when finished!:)
