I'm very happy to relay that Fry's Electronics has begun carrying the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D full-tower case at many of their locations. This is an impressive feat, as Fry's generally doesn't carry PC chassis that retail for more than about $200. It's simply a floor space issue; mass-market PC cases below $200 tend to sell in higher volumes, and Fry's, like most retailers, tries to carry a mix of products that will move a lot of volume.
The 800D has enjoyed a reception from both the press and customers that's been nothing short of phenomenal. It seems that many prospective customers have been asking for it at their local Fry's Electronics location. This interest has made its way to Fry's management, and they've agreed to carry the 800D on a trial basis at 14 of their locations. Some of these locations were chosen by Fry's because those are the stores where they've gotten the most requests from customers. Most of the trial stores are in Texas. The 800D is a pretty large case, so I'll let you go ahead and make the "everything's bigger in Texas" joke.
