Corsair Launches Obsidian 1000D Super-Tower PC Case

CORSAIR , a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced the launch of its largest, most feature-rich PC case ever - the Obsidian Series 1000D. Building on the CORSAIR Concept Slate prototype that captured the imagination of PC enthusiasts, the Obsidian 1000D is the result of over two years of development and design to create the ultimate super-tower case. Clean exterior lines brushed aluminium details and four smoked tempered glass panels give the 1000D the iconic styling and superior build-quality enthusiasts have come to expect from the CORSAIR Obsidian Series.

Both a full E-ATX and Mini-ITX system can be installed simultaneously, cooled by 13 cooling fan mounts, powered by two PSUs (SFX and ATX) and equipped with 11 storage drives. Created to house the world's most epic PC builds, the 1000D is the ultimate super-tower PC case.
The 1000D is designed to house the most powerful, ambitious and jaw-dropping PCs on the planet, contained in a unique triple-chamber, dual-system layout. The primary E-ATX system is mounted on a raised motherboard island, lined by convenient cable routing holes and backed by a huge French-door-style rear compartment to easily hide away 2.5in drives, cabling and accessories. The Mini-ITX system sits rotated above the ATX PSU mount, providing an optional fully-equipped system to run as a file server, streaming capture system, or second gaming PC for player two.

With two systems worth of hardware to handle, the 1000D boasts a huge array of cooling options. Eight 120mm fan mounts to the front, three 140mm fan mounts in the roof and two 120/140mm fan mounts to the rear have the headroom to mount even the thickest liquid cooling radiators with fans in push/pull configuration. Fitted using replaceable telescoping fan trays* that make installation easy, the 1000D can equip up to 18 cooling fans and four 480mm liquid cooling radiators - the most liquid-cooling friendly CORSAIR case ever.

To power the huge array of cooling hardware it can carry, the 1000D includes a CORSAIR Commander PRO digital RGB lighting and fan speed controller, granting users precision speed control of up to six PWM fans, and lighting control for up to six CORSAIR RGB fans or CORSAIR RGB LED strips. The 1000D itself also boasts integrated RGB lighting, built into its front panel and front logo, as either a starting-point for a stunning RGB build, or as a subtle accent to your system.

Whether you go all-out on lighting or are building a more reserved system, CORSAIR iCUE software brings everything together, combining RGB lighting control for all iCUE compatible products including fans, RGB LED light strips, keyboards, mice and more. iCUE also provides in-depth customizable fan RPM curves to silence fans, downloadable profiles and advanced system monitoring, all controlled with a single easy-to-use interface.

Look closer behind the monolithic design and epic capabilities, and you'll find that the 1000D is loaded with extras to make building your system easy and ready for years of upgrades. The front panel offers dual USB 3.1 Type C ports, as well as four USB 3.0 ports, for multiple high-speed connections. Front, rear and roof removable dust filters ensure your system stays looking its best, while a rotatable GPU mount plate for the primary system lets you put your graphics card on show. When installing liquid cooling, you'll find a wide variety of pump and reservoir mounting points, with an exhaustive array of screws and cable ties included to add the finishing touch to your system.

Able to easily house today's most ambitious systems, cool them with room to spare, finish them with fine attention to detail and light them with stunning, or subtle, RGB lighting, the 1000D is the ultimate super-tower case.

The interior pic that shows all the fancy, colorful hardware.....the reservoir isn't level and it bothers me. That is all. Move along.
The whole loop looks jank AF. Why go hardline if you're going to have diagonal tubing runs... Too lazy to bend em I guess.

Weight = 29.5kg = 65lbs !!! That's too heavy, and that's without fans and all the other hardware installed! All that glass must weigh a ton - my Obsidian 750D only weighs 9.7kg (21 lbs), with 3 fans. I applaud Corsair for finally releasing a new flagship, but I feel like the days of huge cases are behind us. No longer any great need for 8 hard drives, multiple video cards, elaborate water cooling systems, etc. Except as a hobby, the epeen imperative. I'm getting past those days, and would rather go smaller. Nice case - way too heavy - over 100 lbs. when fully loaded, especially if dual system. Price of fans could cost you another small fortune, at $30 each (the build they show has 24 RGB fans).

Any why have 2 graphics cards if there is no way you can connect them with an SLI bridge?

Bottom card appears to be in the ITX mobo.

''guys buying cases in this price range said that they almost always threw away whatever "cheap crappy fans" came with the case ''

see what you just said ? think on that . so why are your better or best fans not in it at that ''price range '' ?
Makes sense for some people. I know a guy who sticks Noctua fans in every slot he has access to.

The case isn't really my personal aesthetic but that's okay. I can see someone getting it. The hostility on here is really thick though. Again, the amount of choice out there is one of the best aspects of our hobby.

Ah, yes, good catch. That makes more sense.

.....curious to see what some of the pro modders will do with this.... besides that I have no thoughts on this because i don't see a practical usage for it. Maybe in the future they will release a "mortal man" size of this case.

nice you pointed that fan thing out on it ....

kinda like the guy said above no fans ? whats next motherboard tray sold separately, no standoffs included , and drive bays optional as well ? when you buy a case you expect ready to go not darn I got to go back to newegg and get the fans for it at added cost on top of the case's cost ..

then see there trying to dazzle you with the LED gimmicks , sales hype to smoke screen things as this or any short comings or lack of support , ect .... its now wow cool led's all over it then reality sets in what they find its another week waiting on fans that were not included to get there rig running . I guess you can pretend to use the Commander Pro so you can control up to six fans (DC or PWM), plus any RGB lighting strips or fans you decide you may want to install eventually ,

ya, I'd be one to of took it had fans for granted and ready for use out of its box if throwing a order together , cause its expected ...


seems like they could offer a LED fan packaged case and a non- led fan packaged case . just check the one you want at cart ..
Cases don't have motherboard trays anymore... This is not the late 2000s when I remember every case had motherboard trays.

Also,

No one mentioned that this case can house 2 systems? TPU... that was probably one of the biggest selling point...

Some cases still have them for those willing to look: Lian-Li certain models and Be Quiet Dark Base 900 come to mind first.

Thought it looked nice, until I looked at the fan mounts and realized they're pitiful for a case this size. A 300mm+ wide case has no business lacking 140mm fan mounts front and back, or at least an alternate mount position for a single line of 200mm fans.

Disappointed at the fans not being included, but I could still fall in love with this case quite easily.
