Corsair Shows Off New Obsidian 500D Cases at CES

Corsair had a lot to show us at CES this year, but we were really interested in their new cases. The main one that they were showing off was the Obsidian 500D, which will be available in two different flavors.

You’ll have an all tempered glass version with tempered glass panels as well as a curved tempered glass front panel. Then there is a more reserved version which still has the two tempered glass side panels, but a more reserved front panel.

The more flashy tempered glass version will ship with three of Corsair’s RGB fans as well as their Commander unit, which allows you to control the speed of the fans as well as the RGB effects.

Both tempered glass side panels use a hinge design that allows them to easily open for easy access to your hardware inside. Inside you can fit ATX motherboards, but Corsair lets us know there is room for the larger boards from ASUS and AORUS. There is also support for vertical GPU mounting so you can show off your graphics card.

On the backside of the case you are going to find three 2.5-inch drive bays as well as two more 3.5-inch drive bays.

We currently do not have availability for these cases, but the all tempered glass version with the three RGB fans will be $249, and the more reserved version will be $149.
