Corsair shows PC chassis

At the Computex show on Tuesday, computer memory, solid state drive and USB drive maker Corsair showed off its first PC chassis, the Obsidian Series 800D. The full tower chassis supports up to five 5.25-inch drives and six 3.5-inch drives in its steel construction, along with support for ATX, Extended ATX and micro ATX mainboards. The chassis is matte black throughout, while its faceplate is made of brushed aluminum.

The case has a user-friendly and tool-less design that includes four hot-swappable SATA bays and a cut-out in the mainboard tray that allows them to change CPU coolers without removing the entire mainboard. All components can be removed and installed without the need for tools.

Fans can be placed in any of seven positions and there are three areas with an emphasis on cooling near the power supply, SATA bays and main compartment. The SATA bay has a dedicated 140mm fan, the power supply has an intake and exhaust fan and there are pre-drilled holes in the ceiling for radiators or up to three 120mm fans.

The Obsidian Series 800D will begin shipping early in July, priced at $299. [via DailyTech]
