Inside The Corsair Obsidian 800D Full Tower Case
I already got a somewhat clouded view of the interior through the window, but when I removed the door to get the plastic off the inside of the glass, I stepped back and actually said "wow" out loud. The chassis is even sexier on the inside! The monochromatic paint scheme is perfect, and allows the plastic shrouds and the wire management grommets to virtually disappear into the landscape. Three different cooling zones, one for the motherboard, one for the hot swappable HDD rack, and the third at the bottom for the PSU and extra couple of hard drives, should keep heat build up at bay.
No corner is left unpainted! From every angle there is a lot of that sexy black. Corsair even takes the extra step to make sure the fan wire is black to "hide" itself in the surroundings.
Taking a look inside the front half, you can see where Corsair ships all the hardware, secure strapped inside the 5.25" drive rack, which is tool-less I might add. Moving down, you run into the connection and the PCB for the hot swappable SATA setup. Yes, Corsair includes the necessary cables to make it all function properly.
Under the plastic "Corsair" marked cover is a 140mm fan to cool the drives. Just below, you can add another 120mm fan to cool the lower rack if needed. And to the far top left, you can see I have released the access panel that removes to allow easier installation of a back plate.
Spinning the Obsidian around, you can see there is plenty of room, to get everything you have to wire, hidden. With thirteen various holes that have grommets and two that aren't I don't see what you could install that couldn't benefit from the provided access to hide everything. Well done Corsair! Lastly, keeping with the all black look, all of the power and front I/O wiring is also in black sheathing.
