Upgrading the already comically large Obsidian 900D chassis, Corsair has pushed the boundaries even further with its newly released Obsidian 1000D Super-Tower. The monstrous new addition houses enough room for two separate systems, complete with their own power supply and enough room spare for a full watercooling loop.
Both the E-ATX and Mini-ITX systems can run simultaneously, cooled by a whopping thirteen fans mounted directly to the case. While eight 120mm fans can fit at the front, three 140mm on the roof and a further two 120mm or 140mm at the rear, Corsair’s promotional image features a staggering twenty-four fans in total through displayed radiators in a push/pull configuration. Of course, watercooling is not included, but it is a testament to the sheer size of the Obsidian 1000D.
Corsair dubs the Obsidian 1000D its “most liquid-cooling friendly Corsair case ever,” and it’s easy to see why. Alongside enough headroom for the thickest liquid cooling radiators, up to four 480mm radiators can be attached to the case.

Installation is particularly easy with its swinging tempered glass panel doors and sliding rail mounts for fans and radiators. Barn doors accessible from the back of the case enable greater cable management, as well as fitting up to six 2.5-inch SSD mounts and five 3.5-inch HDD bays.
The top panel includes two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, as well as four USB 3.0 ports and the standard audio and microphone jack. While the primary PC’s power button is located with the ports, the secondary Mini-ITX solution is powered on at the rear.
Originally set to debut earlier this year, the 1000D seems to have seen a few redesigns, with the final iteration forgoing the curved tempered glass front panel for a flatter, more practical solution that allows for greater airflow while still showcasing its RGB lighting.
Corsair has not confirmed how many fans the Obsidian 1000D will ship with, but it will include its Commander Pro fan and lighting controller, which works with the iCUE software to enable integrated RGB and customise Corsair’s RGB-powered fans.
The Corsair Obsidian 1000D Super-Tower comes in at a premium pricing of £450 / $500, readily available in the US and available to pre-order for an 18th May delivery here in the UK.
KitGuru Says: While this seems like the perfect, sleek solution for streamers and content creators running one setup for gaming and another for dedicated streaming, the cost is sure to direct many to the cheaper solution of two separate systems. Still, the aptly named Super-Tower is sure to shake up the highest-end markets. Are you interested in grabbing the Corsair Obsidian 1000D?
