Over the years I have had quite the assortment of cases to choose from. One fact has always remained the same. I always go for larger cases that are easy on the eyes, feature rich, offer enough room for my goods and even the option to get my whole arm inside, if need be. This path has had me housing goods in cases from Antec, when the 900 was first released, after that I was in the original Cosmos S. There is a bit of a blur where I was switching various Raven cases, but I know the 800D soon followed, and that chassis set on my desk for what seemed like years. From that chassis I moved all of my hardware over the Silverstone TJ11, and I was happy with that chassis for quite some time.
For a guy like me who keeps his day to day work rig in a showcase environment, and tests coolers in a $400 InWin open air chassis, I for sure am spoiled. Another factor that makes me not want to change cases all the time is that fact that it is my work rig, so down time to customize a case to do what I want is out of the question. I need ready to go solutions that in some way or another, easily offers water cooling support, great ventilation, aesthetic appeal, and has to have room for me to swap parts out if I am testing, or just simply replacing my gaming hardware. From what I have just seen, there is a new big dog in town, and it is no longer my SilverStone TJ11.
Corsair has had a few fumbles as far as I am concerned with a couple of their designs as of late, but with the chassis we are going to see today, this case is on a whole other plane of reality of what an enthusiast tower should be. Just like when the 800D was released, Corsair is now delivering the Obsidian Series 900D that really just kicks ass and takes names. I have a feeling it will be quite some time until there is another mainstream company that can come up with a similarly designed chassis with these sort of offerings, and at a price that any enthusiast will have no issues paying to get the best of the best.
Make sure all your bills are paid and you have already eaten today, because by the time you finish reading this review, I have a feeling you may be clearing out the wallet to get an Obsidian 900D of your very own.
