Last year, Corsair gave us a sneak peak at their latest Obsidian case, the Obsidian 500D; originally slated to be released in October, was delayed as they wanted to perfect it. Recently, at CES 2018, they showed off two versions of the 500D. One with a Tempered Glass front panel, and one with a brushed aluminum panel. They sent us an early engineering sample to take a close look at the newly designed Premium Mid-Tower Obsidian 500D. The Obsidian 500D features dual Tempered Glass side panels that swing open, brushed aluminum front and top panels, vertical graphics card compatibility and other features. Corsair is finally lifting the embargo and launching the Obsidian 500D today, February 22nd, 2018 for $149.99 shipped. This is the first new Obsidian series card in four years!
