CORSAIR, a PC gaming peripherals maker has launched a new PC case – the Obsidian Series 1000D that is built on the CORSAIR Concept Slate prototype.

The case' exterior lines feature brushed aluminium details and four smoked tempered glass panels. The company claims that with this case, both a full E-ATX and Mini-ITX system can be installed simultaneously. And, can be cooled by 13 cooling fan mounts, powered by two PSUs (SFX and ATX) and equipped with 11 storage drives.

 

The 1000D features a unique triple-chamber and a dual-system layout. The primary E-ATX system is mounted on a raised motherboard island, lined by cable routing holes and backed by a huge French-door-style rear compartment to hide 2.5-inch 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, the 1000D boasts an 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 the liquid cooling radiators with fans in push/pull configuration. Fitted using replaceable telescoping fan trays promises to make installation easy, the 1000D can equip up to 18 cooling fans and four 480mm liquid cooling radiators.

 

To power the array of cooling hardware it can carry, the 1000D includes a CORSAIR Commander PRO digital RGB lighting and fan speed controller, granting users 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 an RGB build, or as an accent to your system.

Additionally, the CORSAIR iCUE software promises to bring 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 customisable fan RPM curves to silence fans, downloadable profiles and advanced system monitoring, all controlled with a single easy-to-use interface.

 

The front panel offers dual USB 3.1 Type C ports, as well as four USB 3.0 ports, for multiple high-speed connections. It features front, rear and roof removable dust filters and a rotatable GPU mount plate for the primary system to put graphics card on the show.

The CORSAIR Obsidian Series 1000D is available from the CORSAIR network of authorised retailers and distributors.
