When I first heard about the Corsair Obsidian 900D – nicknamed “Godzilla” – a while ago and saw the first teaser photos, I fell in love. You see, I’ve got a fetish for big, black, monolithic PC chassis. To this very day, it’s the one PC case that I wish I had. It’s got room for a 480mm radiator, it’s black, and it’s got a no-frills aesthetic. Perfection, in my opinion.
The thing about the Obsidian 900D, though, is that it’s really big. I mean, it’s really big. To me, that’s no problem at all, since I’ve been pining for a PC chassis that would fit my fat 480mm radiator sans modification, with enough room for another radiator (or two) more (I can fit my 360mm fat radiator in there as well).
Most people don’t really need all the interior volume that the Obsidian 900D has, however. Indeed, most water-cooling enthusiasts would be content to stuff their chassis with a radiator no bigger than 360mm.
So what does Corsair do? It introduced the more sensibly-sized Obsidian 750D.
Well, that’s not to say the 750D is puny. Quite rightly, Corsair still qualifies its newest Obsidian-series chassis as a full-tower. As the company’s Director of Product Marketing Xavier Lauwaert says, “not everyone needs so much room (as the 900D offers). Obsidian 750D is built for those users that demand full-on Obsidian quality in a standard full-tower form factor with plenty of innovative features and cooling options.”
The newest Obsidian chassis features:
The Corsair Obsidian 750D has an MSRP of $159.99 and is available immediately.
