As the title suggest, it has been quite a long time since Corsair has made something so elegant yet still so awesome in the originality of the design and concepts included into it that I can't really see any reason not to own one. For a line like that to come from a guy like me is really saying something. The original submission of the Obsidian series, the 800D spent three full years on my desk with many and I mean many various build inside of it over that time. For the basis of this review I am speaking of only the Obsidian series and there were also great cases in the Graphite and Carbide series, mainly the 600T and the 500R stick out for those, but back to the topic at hand.
In my opinion Corsair set the bar so high with what the 800D offered and how sleek and sexy it looked sitting anywhere, that it was a real shame it came before all of the other cases I mentioned. Now the hot swap bays are gone and of course we are now speaking of a mid-tower chassis, but in the simplest of terms, this is what I would expect to come from all the handy things that evolved over the line of Corsair cases.
This yet keeping enough of the original in materials and aesthetic appeal and yet still finds a way to keep on giving with a few innovative and "now why did I think about that" aspects for other companies to try and copy. I guarantee that is going to happen to one feature in particular and that is the ingenious, yet simple solution to most cases with a front door on them and that's that they don't swing in the right direction for every situation.
