I'm gonna be honest, i loved EVERYTHING about the project Slate, but that flat glass front panel is a no-no for me. Where is the curved front panel like the Slate project, or even 500D SE ? I guess it is too difficult to mass product ... But will there be an alternative in the future like a steal curved front panel like the "normal" 500D ?

I really want this case but i'm sorry, that front panel isn't looking so good imo.

edit: Seems like the curved front panel will be available to buy separately, unless this is a photo error

What do I need to purchase separately to get 4x480mm radiator support?
Is it the "Obsidian 1000D 8x 120mm Fan Tray"? Or something more?

1000D does not have curved glass due to manufacturing complexity and the resulting QC that would need to be maintained. That spare part listing has the incorrect image. I realize that might be a bit of a downer, we tried our hardest to make the original Concept Slate aesthetic work for mass production, it just didn't pan out.

Woah!

I've waited for this case for a long time, but do have a few, small gripes.

I realise you wanted to minimise tempered glass at the top to cut down on price, though I think you missed a golden opportunity to work with modders - if the pieces either side had been optimised for 3D printing, it would've allowed people to attach their own grill designs above the dust filters. Offering a 1000D-version of the 570X Mirror's RGB PSU Shroud would be a nice accessory as well, and this case now provides the perfect opportunity to make a 200mm LL RGB fan...

Apart from these, it's much less expensive than I anticipated, which more than competes with Phanteks' super tower. Excellent job

Looks better than my 900D. Maybe room enough for a new Dream Machine.

What is max CPU cooler height for the mini-ITX motherboard. I think cooler height spec will vary based on which cards are populated on the ATX motherboard, e.g. cooler height if “last” card is in slot 8, or “last” card in slot 7, etc.

Is this information available yet?

Can the 4 x 120 tray be used for the front or is it only for the top panel? I think 8 fans are a bit much, but 4 down the middle would be fine. I would prefer 140mm, but I can work with 120mm.

I agree with PWN3D_, a front curved glass panel would have been awesome, but I can understand how difficult that would have been for mass production. Still, if the 500 SE will have it, wish the 1000D could have too.

Finally, after a couple of years wondering what case I will use for my next build, yes the case was keeping me from building anything new, I have found my new case!!!! And I can build two systems in one, YES!!! Maybe it's not perfect, but I'll be happy to build my HEDT system in it! Nice job Corsair!

Great question, I'd like to know the answer to that as well.

Hello:

I am having the same problem as well. I want to order the following piece; 8x 120 mm Fan Tray to make a quad 480mm rad build and have the case most likely forever for future builds.

https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Catego...y/p/CC-8900160

It is unreasonable that only can be ordered in the US store to be delivered to the US, while the rest of the world get treated as "second class", after buying a 449 £ (500€) case, and we can't have a 9.99$ tray, as you can see in the following link.

https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Catego...y/p/CC-8900160

I would pay for the international delivery and I wouldn't care, but apparently is impossible, the demand should be of 17 million Corsair Obsidian 1000D sold in the US for them to not to offer the part in other parts of the world.

Sad

Yeah.. experienced the same. Don't expect the stores to provide accessories to this case either. Not that any of them seem to have the case in stock where I live anyway.

My only option was to order it from United States, because they have priority treatment, and then mail forward it to me in order to arrive on time for DreamHack Valencia... for a total amount of 50$ for a piece that costs 9.99$ in the US store...

I used USGOBUY, and it worked really well in their part, 10/10, and they refund me some funds because they didn't need the amount of money they asked initially.

In corsairs part... 0/10, the support team just redirect me to outside sellers in Europe to try there or just say wait until it comes to stock.... on a whopping 449 pounds or 500 euros case... really nice answer.
