Summary

Well to say things in the tech industry are getting smaller by the day would be wrong especially when you take a look at the Corsair Obsidian 900D. This is one computer case that takes size to a whole new level while also coming with many important features a good case should have. This is the largest, most awesome case in the market today.

The Corsair Obsidian 900D is Corsair’s new flagship cupboard that replaces the Obsidian 800D and is without doubt one of the largest laptop circumstances we’ve ever examined. Its direct competitor the Cooler Grasp Cosmos II, which can be an important case, is best a little greater than this however doesn’t supply as a lot flexibility. The entrance of this case has a full brushed aluminium end with the force bays additionally carrying brushed aluminium panels. The underside entrance panel pops out to divulge an incredible push-to-do away with mud filter, in the back of which you’ll to find three, pre-put in static drive enthusiasts. These put in fanatics are Corsair’s personal AF Collection lovers. There’s a push-to-liberate plate on the entrance that hides the entrance I/O panel and has 4 USB 2.zero and two USB three.zero ports among the many standard audio jacks. The facility button is made to meld with the entrance design of the 900D.

The highest of the case is a huge, meshed detachable panel with a mud filter connected to it. However the very best section concerning the 900D must be its aspect panel, which has a massive, smoked, acrylic window that permits you to blow their own horns the innards of a device constructed within. It’s a cinch to open the facet panels the usage of the equipped buttons behind the case, which if pressed, pops the facet panels out. Every of the perimeters of the 900D has two doorways with one being the larger door to get right of entry to the motherboard house and the opposite one being a smaller one on the backside that lets customers get right of entry to the new swappable pressure bay and PSU mounting areas constructed within the case. The internal of the 900D is as intimidating as the outside with an enormous area for putting in XL-ATX and even HPTX boards and your complete motherboard tray is replete with strategically positioned cable administration cutouts coated via rubber grommets.

Cable administration within the 900D is significantly better than anything else we’ve viewed until date for the reason that case has quite a few room behind the motherboard tray with sensible clips to carry cables whereas additionally preserving enough room at the back of the tray to shut the aspect panel. Corsair has integrated a bunch of black cable ties together with the case as smartly to assist customers.

Some other fascinating characteristic of the 900D is the gap for putting in two PSUs concurrently, however there gained’t be many individuals in the market who would do that except they’re constructing one thing extraordinarily energy hungry. The Obsidian 900D is primed for liquid cooling because it has area for one of the crucial most problematic liquid cooling setups an individual can bring to mind. There’s house for putting in a full measurement 480mm radiator on the prime, every other 480mm on the backside on one aspect, a 240mm on the opposite aspect on the backside as smartly, a 140mm radiator on the rear and eventually, a 360mm radiator on the entrance; that you can go nuts with the 900D whereas constructing a liquid cooled rig. If you want extra space (we infrequently suppose you’ll), that you can eliminate the exhausting pressure cages and make extra space. Many of the components of the case use screws as an alternative of rivets to permit for modding choices which is a pleasant factor because a number of lovers are moving into that path now.

With the inner cupboard temperature being 32.5°C when idle and 38.5°C underneath full load to the check setup, the efficiency is nothing in need of spectacular. At Rs.25,499 the Obsidian 900D is a wonderful case nevertheless it’s for sure no longer for the faint of coronary heart. One will have to go for it if they’re constructing a completely blown, no-holds-barred water-cooled setup.
