Legit Reviews posted their Best of 2009 Hardware Awards today and Corsair received awards in two categories; Best Computer Case and Best Water Cooling Kit! Here's what they had to say about the Corsair Obsidian Series™ 800D full-tower chassis:
Corsair had been hard at work developing a new chassis long before their frist chassis was released in August of 2009. This chassis wasn't a clone of an existing case, but rather a new design from the ground up that was aimed at computer enthusiasts. When we reviewed the chassis in August of 2009, we found that this full size tower was massive, but we fell in love with the space, appearance and functionality.
The case was delayed a number of times and even had to go through a slight re-design right when it was launched, but the end product is spectacular to say the least. We liked the Obsidian 800D so much, that we gave the case the innovation award when we reviewed it this summer.
The Corsair Cooling™ Hydro Series H50 CPU Cooler won our second "Best of" award and Legit had this to say about it:
When the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 CPU Cooler launched in June 2009, it promised to give consumers the power of liquid cooling in a compact, easy-to-install package at a sub $100 price point. The little liquid cooler more than impressed us in our in-depth review of it that was published back in July 2009. We also found that changing the fan configuration on the little cooler would improve performance even more, which is nice for enthusiasts and modders.
