The Corsair Obsidian 1000D is a massive case with room for two whole systems, which means that you're going to need a ton of cooling and airflow. The Obsidian 1000D keeps plenty of room for just that. There's space for radiators at the front, top, and rear. The case is also big enough to let you house four 480mm radiators at the same time, which is one of the reasons why it's one of the best PC cases out there.

What's more, there's support for pretty much all the radiator sizes you could find — 120mm, 140mm, 240mm, 280mm, 360mm, 420mm, and 480mm. The case includes slide-out radiator trays for quick and easy radiator mounting, with additional trays available for purchase according to your choice of radiator combinations.
