Now then, the top side. Bloke's stuff. The chassis is prepared for liquid cooling, you can locate a single, dual or triple 120mm radiator on the inside or outside of the chassis. You'll spot a nice wide mesh allowing a lot of airflow, and mounting holes for the radiators, or if you wanted to... a couple of 120mm fans. Don't worry about airflow though, included inside the chassis are three massive fans creating enough airflow while remaining inaudible.
The power button and HDD activity LED sit next to a front I/O panel which is covered by this door. The front is made of brushed aluminum and this hatch covers the front side I/O panel (4x USB, audio, Firewire). The one thing I'm missing here is an eSATA connector.
Hard to see, but no typical green, red or blue LEDs. White LEDS are used for power ON and HDD activity. Simply subtle, and it surely works for me.
The hot swappable drives then. Behind the door you'll notice four of them, four trays allow you to hot swap any 3.5 SATA hard drive. With a gentle push on the button on the left a bar releases (as shown above) and allows the tray to slide out.
Also a fun fact, the door itself, by pushing a pin at the top, can be removed and... it is now reversible so can open from whichever side is more convenient. Don't ask me why that was implemented though. BTW - should you require more HDDs/SSDs be installed, there's room for two more drives inside the chassis in the lower compartment -- we'll show you this later on.
Here we have a HDD tray for use with the hot swappable drive bay. The trays are sturdy, made out of steel. You can mount 3.5 HDDs but the tray also allows you to mount a 2.5 Notebook style storage device or SSD. At the bottom you secure it with two screws after which you can slide it into the drive bay.
We review the Corsair Vengeance K70 cherry red mechanical keyboard. The K70 is the successor of the popular K60 but it adds some more features, is much more cool looking with full LED lit keys and has a trick or two encompassed in the new design as well. Let's have a peek shall we ?
Corsair Obsidian 350D review
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
