Overview

Hardware:
 
Manufacturer:
 
Price at time of Review: $349.99 at amazon.com
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

TONS of room for just about anything you can imagine, huge window, feature rich and innovative, great cable management insane water cooling support.
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Pricey, top panel hard to remove, no fan splitters/adapters included, poor user's manual documentation.
 
BOTTOM LINE:
If you're looking for a very large case that can hold almost anything you can throw at it, (both hardware and cooling), without needing to be modded, then the 900D is the prefect call.

Introduction

Cases have come so far in so little time that it’s almost impossible to see every single one. They’ve transformed from being plain beige boxes to offering just about any shape and/or color your heart desires. They also come in a variety of sizes – from cases designed for Mini-ITX boards to those designed for E-ATX or even bigger. The case we’ll be looking at today fits firmly into the “E-ATX or bigger” category. You’re all familiar with the name Corsair – they’ve been around making high-end cases, peripherals, SSDs, RAM, and more for quite some time. Corsair just released their latest top-of-the-line case – the 900D – and we’ve got our hands on one to check out for you guys. Grab a drink and a snack and settle in – this case is loaded to the gills with goodies.

 

 

The 900D Super Tower is the latest offering in the Obsidian series lineup from Corsair. Here’s a little background info on the company:

“Meeting Performance Computing Demands since 1994:

Corsair is a global company bringing innovative, high-performance components to the PC gaming market. Specializing in very high performance memory, ultra-efficient power supplies, and other key system components, our products are the choice of overclockers, enthusiasts, and gamers everywhere.

Founded as Corsair Microsystems in 1994, Corsair originally developed Level 2 cache modules for OEMs. After Intel incorporated the L2 cache in the processor with the release of its Pentium Pro processor family, Corsair changed its focus to DRAM modules, primarily in the server market. In 2002, Corsair began shipping DRAM modules that were specifically designed to appeal to computer overclocking enthusiasts. From its roots in high-performance memory, Corsair has expanded its award-winning product portfolio to include ultra-efficient power supplies, builder-friendly cases, ground-breaking CPU coolers, blazing-fast solid-state drives, and other key system components.

Corsair has developed a global operations infrastructure with extensive marketing and distribution channel relationships. Corsair’s products are sold to end users in over sixty countries worldwide, primarily through leading distributors and retailers.” – Corsair.com

First, let’s take a look at the features and specs of this beast.

    I know they are a dying breed but I always appreciate having a front eSATA port. Nice case but too rich for my blood.

    This review helped make up for the lack of a manual. One thing, when removing the top of the case (grate and filter) reach inside and push up slightly/ In fact there is a small square opening just to do that. If you can not find it just push up slightly from the inside while sliding the top to the side, it will pop right off. I had the same issues described here and I found this trick by accident.
    This is truly the best case I have ever worked with, the most versatile and the absolutely no compromise construction have made me very happy with my choice.
