Corsair releases the gargantuan Obsidian 1000D case for dual-systems
The perfect case for streamers and people with certain complexes.
For those of you in the streaming world, dual-systems are used to ensure stream quality by one PC being used to play the game and the other encoding and running any other software like comms or the actual streaming software. Corsair’s new Obsidian 1000D can fit two systems inside the same case, one with E-ATX boards and another with a system in the m-ITX form factor.
It has brushed aluminum details and four smoked tempered glass panels, both sides, top and front. The 1000D has a whopping 13 cooling fan mounts, space for two PSUs (SFX and ATX) and room for 11 storage drives.
This behemoth provides plenty of options for the user, such as a second system as a file server, streaming capture system, or even second gaming PC for your Player Two.
Of course, with it being Corsair, it wouldn’t be complete without copious RGB. To power (and light) the cooling equipment you’ll be able to cram in there, the 1000D includes a CORSAIR Commander PRO digital RGB lighting and fan speed controller. This grants 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.
All the lighting is then further controlled by Corsair’s iCUE software solution.
All the ports you’d expect in a modern case are present on the Obsidian 1000D, with dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports, as well as four USB 3.0 ports. Dust filters keep your system clean, while a rotatable GPU mount lets you show off your expensive hardware.
You can find the Obsidian 1000D at Corsair.com or any of their usual outlets for $499
