[HWC] Corsair Rumoured to be Launching Obsidian 700D Case

Corsair's first foray into the computer case market with the Obsidian 800D made headlines and rocketed it to fame, becoming the premiere full tower. Word has now been leaked online that Corsair will expand their lineup with a little sibling, labeled the 700D.

Despite many internet reports, when comparing the listed dimensions, the 700D is no smaller than the 800D, at 24″ (H) x 24″ (L) x 9″ (W) (609 X 609 X 229 mm). It does make a few minor changes however, including the replacement of the side window with a blank panel and removing the hot swappable drive front drive tray. Changes which are sure to drop the price, but likely only a bit.

I love the 800D and was really hoping to see a smaller version of it though! (That would hopefully be cheaper)

Interesting. Good for people who want to mod it perhaps? Although what have they put in place of the hotswap bays?

Hope the pricing is competitive(It this is true that is), The 800D is a beastly case & it'd be great to have a smaller more affordable version.

Looking at the paper in the source it seems like they have just moved the bays sideways inside the case on selds and got rid of the hotswap thing?

I don't see these changes dropping the price all that much though. Kind of disappointing

Room for 5970's

EDIT: okay...room for 5970x2's! (rumored 5870x4)
Im sure someone will happily trade the blank panel from the 700D for the windowed panel of the 800D.

Hmm in many ways its just a worse version. It would be much better if they just supplied a blank side panel for the 800D.

What would be REALLY nice would be an mATX version - get rid of the hotswap and have some hdd mounts in the 5.25" bays.

XiDillon, you can already fit 5970's. And as we found out, they havn't removed them, just turned them round

They need to make a smaller case. Something like...a 500D? I really don't need something that big to be honest.

I want something that big but with room for 10 or 12 hard drives :/ There isn't any reason for a case to have a million 5.25" bays. Obviously you can convert them, but that's extra money and all that.

I've got an 800D with 5 SSDs, a 2.5" HDD, and 4 3.5" HDDs. And not a single one is in a 5.25" bay.

And I've got my server in an original CM Stacker (STC-T01). It fits up to 20 3.5" HDDs depending on the bracket/hotswap bays that you get.
