Corsair hasn't had a super ridiculously high-end chassis since the Obsidian 900D which was released all the way back in 2013, before RGBs went mainstream, and now we're seeing a tease of the unannounced Obsidian 1000D chassis.




The new Corsair Obsidian 1000D is a beast, with the super-tower costing $500 and already listed early on Amazon. We should expect a beautiful style that is mixed with curved tempered glass, matte black aluminum, and RGB LEDs throughout. Inside, it's a bevy of ultimate enthusiast options.


Corsair has the front, sides, and top panels all made using curved tempered glass with aluminum inserts that allows for discrete air inlets for a bunch of fan mounts inside.




The front panel of the Obsidian 1000D rocks 4 x USB 3.1 Type-A and 2 x USB 3.1 Type-C connectors alongside the usual audio jacks. The connectors themselves are flanked by RGB lighting diffusers, because RGBs are awesome.




Inside, the case is super modular with options between lots of storage inside of the case, to a super-cooling tower that can house multiple liquid cooling loops for serious enthusiasts. The rear I/O can be configured as usual, or perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard with 8+2 slots, or parallel to its plane with 5+2 slots.


Corsair's new Obsidian 1000D allows you to install anything from E-ATX down, with enough spots for up to 8 x 120mm fans at the front, 3 x 140mm at the top, and 2 x 120mm at the rear. Inside, Corsair has support for radiators of up to 480 x 120mm at the front, 420 x 140mm at the top, and 240 x 120mm at the rear.


To top it off, Corsair includes a Commander Pro fan and lighting controller built-in.
