Corsair Obsidian 700D PC Case Pictures and Details Leaked

Post by Apoptosis » Wed Feb 17, 2010 2:11 pm

Corsair is getting ready to announce its second PC case, the Obsidian 700D. The new 700D is positioned slightly lower than the 800D which the company debuted last year. Information on the 700D surfaced from a leaked company brochure. It shows the case to be an ATX full-tower, with a black outside appearance like its big brother the 800D. There is no side-panel window like on the 800D, but is said to inherit most of the interior features of the 800D. There are six internal drive bays for HDDs or SSDs, five exposed 5.25″ and one exposed 3.5″ bay. Interiors are said to retain cable-management holes, three-zone cooling, and pre-drilled vents for a triple-120mm fan radiator.

The case measures 24″ (H) x 24″ (L) x 9″ (W) / 609 mm x 609 mm x 229 mm, weighs 34.8 lbs / 15.8 kg, and makes use of steel for the internal frame, and aluminum for its panels. There’s room for three 140 mm and up to four 120 mm fans. There are eight expansion slots, so it makes room for a double-slot video card seated on the bottom-most slot of the motherboard. There’s room for ITX, m-ATX, ATX, and EATX motherboard types, the motherboard tray has a cutout at the CPU socket area for easy handling of certain types of coolers. The front-panel has four USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire port, and the FP audio connectors.

Corsair ships this case with a two-year warranty. Its price and availability remain yet to be known, but it's likely a bit cheaper than the Obsidian 800D, which ships for around $290. Source: Hardwareluxx.de

The 800D is $273 shipped... I'm guessing this will be under $199 shipped.

It's probably going to compete with the Raven 02 and FT02 (are those both fulltowers?) at that range.

oops, I was looking at the local prices up here. Cheapest 800D is $294 up here with environmental fees on electronics tacked on plus 13% tax = FTL.

Wish they would make a mid-tower.

That would be pretty sick. These (700 and 800D) are really nice cases but I think they cater towards the H20 folks.
