Corsair prototype Obsidian 900D Chassis
I'm still using a Obsidian 800D myself here in the office. Corsair however is teasing with an Obsidian 900D. It even comes witha codename, "Godzilla", this case measures 655mm x 694mm x 251mm and is compatible with ATX, E-ATX, XL-ATX and HP-ATX motherboards. You can see a picture of a prototype below, there are no pictures of the inside but there should be four 5.25" drive bays, a whopping fifteen 2.5/3.5" bays and ten PCI expansion slots.
The middle section of the aluminium front panel is floating like a speaker grill over a high-end speaker to improve airflow, and the front also features four USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports and HD audio ports. To give you an idea of the cooling capacity of this case, Corsair says the system on the image below contains 23 Corsair Airflow series fans (22 SP120s and a single AF140), as well two 480mm radiators and two 240mm radiators! The case will also feature dust filters with a magnetic mounting system.
You can apply two 480 mm and a 360 mm radiator inside this beast without the need for any modifications. For aircooling the 900D case comes with three 120mm fans mounted in front (Corsair Airflow SP120's). The middle section of the front aluminum fascia is "floating", like a speaker grill over a high-end speaker for improved airflow. If you look closely at the image above you'll see that there is about an inch gap oneach side, and the panel is nearly two inches away from the front fans, which gives them plenty of room to intake cool air.
The Obsidian 900D is expected to hit the market later this quarter. The pricing is unknown but Corsair revealed it's not going to be priced to compete with the Little Devil, Case Labs or SilverStone's TJ11 cases because the 900D is not 100% aluminium. The MSRP of the Corsair 800D is has yet to be announced of course.

Review - Corsair AX860i Power Supply - 11/10/2012 09:38 AM
For this article we review the Corsair AX860i PSU. The 860 Watt Power Supply is grand in performance, the one massive 72A 12-volts says it all really. Excellent for multi-GPU solutions and hardcore overclockers. Similar to the premium model Corsair also embeds their LINK technology into the PSU. That means you can monitor the PSU with the help of software, things like PSU efficiency, power usage or simply to adjust the fan RPM. We'll show you that in the review though.
