Wow, what a great case! I took a little extra time with this review to bring any issues that might happen to my attention. The problem is, there are no problems. From my original impressions of the Obsidian 800D, through the build, and on through a week's worth of use, I still get a little grin as I walk in and see this Corsair chassis on my desktop. That's right, this chassis made me tear down the Lian Li PC-B70 and permanently house my review rig in here.
Tool-less drives throughout, black throughout and well thought out is a success for Corsair. Taking a huge leap and putting themselves out front releasing their first chassis is a bold move in the first place, and Corsair sure didn't disappoint with anything in their premiere launch of what has to be the sexiest chassis I have had the pleasure to review and use.
I mentioned in the beginning that I would see how well the Corsair Obsidian 800D chassis does against the competition I have tested at or above its price range. My Lian Li was nice, but not as sexy, the Ikonik was innovative, but doesn't hold a candle to the Corsair. The only case I can think of that is close is the Raven from Silverstone, but that chassis is bold, where the Obsidian is a sleek and attractive "every man's" chassis. Considering the Ikonik I tested was well over the Corsairs pre-order price of $279.99 with free shipping from Newegg, it is right in line with the Lian Li which I prefer a bit less than this Corsair, making it worth every penny.
