When I saw a full page spread of the 1000D in Maximum PC magazine on January 11 (or perhaps it was PC Gamer magazine) and it advertises "Learn more at Corsair.com" I was just as excited as many others and expected to see the information on the Corsair site. Unfortunately, it wasn't. Weeks following that ad there was still nothing on the Corsair site. So I'd hope you understand the confusion and frustration in that.

Corsair finally came through and while it doesn't have the curved glass it still is an excellent case. I actually prefer the flat glass as it would seem to allow more air to be drawn in through the front.

I'm anxious for other build components to come in and I'm also waiting after Computex to order GPUs and additional items. Can't wait!

An amazing, beautiful upgrade to the 500D

I've loved the LL fans since they were released, and they really make this tempered glass version of the case shine.

Is this case out yet? The 500D SE case is announced but it's not sold anywhere. I think it can be purchased through Corsair's official website but the cost for shipping is $20. Corsair please hook me up with Free shipping :)

Show it as $24 shipping for me, though I did see a post on Reddit with these coupon codes that go till 7/18. At first I thought it was a spam or something, though I went to Corsair site and tried it and it says the code was valid. Second one was not valid.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Corsair/com...nt_promo_code/

CO0518-NFLY-XZ12-A16N <== Valid

The total out the door shows $237.44. If you want free shipping and pay $250, I bet they will work with you on that ;-)

Enjoy the case!

so pissed about this situation, I've been waiting since CES and there hadn't been any news or a single update so I finally got a different case and had literally just finished my build then the very next night I see on FB that corsair finally announced it. They aren't getting my money now that's for sure

I got the Corsair Obsidian 500D RGB. A couple observations and questions:

The Corsair Commander Pro & the RGB controller were installed @ the front of the case ( infront of the power supply shroud). Is this normal? I thought people typically wire that behind the motherboard?

I'm scared of moving those units because it feels like they are cemented into place.

The other thing is that the wiring was wrong, they put fan 1 on fan 3 and vice versa. Not a big deal, I'll switch it when I get home tonight. The RGB is gorgeous through the glass :)

Otherwise I like the case a lot. It's very pretty and I get great airflow (though I might be a bad judge because my last case is 7 years old and had only one working fan).

I'm surprised there are no reviews of this case yet. One other thing I can't figure out... the hard drive enclosures have these rubber / metal pins that stick into the drive to hold them in place... a couple of them fell out & I couldn't figure out how to put them back in. Again, I haven't built in a long time so obviously things changed in regards to hard drive enclosures... maybe this is normal and I'm just being ignorant.
