Trade shows like Computex always bring out their fair share of oddities, and this year was no exception, with one of the highlights being a Corsair PC case with no fewer than 24 fans.

As one of a handful of companies offering really big desktop PC cases, Corsair was demonstrating its new creature: the 9000D Airflow. At 90 liters in volume – which is twice the size of regular PCs and 1.5x the volume of a typical car gas tank – the colossal case is bigger than ever. It's so big, in fact, that it can house two systems: a full-size ATX (or smaller) system, as well as a separate Mini-ITX system.

The most eye-catching aspect of this PC case (besides its large size, of course) is that it can house as many as 22 fans in addition to two liquid cooling systems. As the name of the 9000D Airflow implies, all of those fans are meant to create as much airflow as possible. And yet, because there are so many fans inside, they do not have to run at a high RPM to move the requisite amount of air, so the 9000D Airflow is quieter than its size otherwise lets on.

To simplify installation of all these fans, the chassis consists of adjustable mounting points on a sliding rail, making the case versatile for any build requirements. The 9000D includes two InfiniRail systems, one at the top (holding six fans) and one at the front, each capable of holding up to eight 120mm fans. Adding fans on the sides and rear increases the total to 24. For those using 140mm or 200mm fans, the InfiniRails can be adjusted by unscrewing and repositioning them based on marked guidelines, allowing for a customized setup despite fitting fewer larger fans. The flexibility of the InfiniRail system enables unique fan placement, enabling the freedom to tailor the cooling configuration to specific needs.

The case design also includes 30mm of clearance behind the motherboard for efficient cable management, making it well-suited for creating clean, organized, and powerful builds.

Besides its may fans, the 9000D Airflow also offers 11 drive bays, plenty of front I/O ports (four USB Type-A, two USB Type-C, audio connectors) with RGB lighting controlled through the iCue Link system. The spacious design allows for comprehensive component compatibility and expansion.

Corsair's Airflow 9000D will be available later this year.

    dual loop and quad radiators using push-pull.
    How much does it weight like that? 50kg?

    oh, they are serious about selling this? This would take up a lot of room in a warehouse, with what I can only assume is a handful of customers.

    so then it wouldnt take up a lot of room in a warehouse, because they dont need to stock as many as other models if there are fewer customers

    also the idea of two systems, atx+itx, is many years old and they have had such cases before

    These dozens of fans working together must consume more energy than my 7800X3D in games XD Reply

    Awesome case! No more cramped living conditions for my PC components. Reply

    How are they counting fans? I see 18 (8 front, 8 top, 2 back) on the case, and 14 (8 front 6 top) more on the radiators for a total of 32. The back side of the case shows space for 3 fans, but since they're not mounted I'm wondering if they conflict with the top fans and radiators. Reply

    It's perfect for little ones to have show and tell time with their box full of printed circuit boards. Thank goodness they never grow up and can give the PC industry a much needed Peter Pan-sustaining influx of money. Reply

    Let me guess. 24 fans and they STILL use a solid glass panel instead of a vented panel, despite vented panels doing way better for case and GPU temps? Reply

    This is exactly the box i am missing after I got their previous model CORSAIR 7000D AIRFLOW. Was pushed to install more fans because to dissipate 1-1.5 kW for the workstation requires such amount of fans and the total volume you see on the picture. That is the box of approaching era of personal supercomputers ! Reply

    I would suggest to add in the middle of glass panel additional large fan blowing on the motherboard. Things are that motherboards have many hot spots where temperature can reach very high temperatures if the air flow is not intense enough there. They have do heatsinks usually but such heatsinks are often ridiculously small. So it is better to add miniature blowers directed on such hot spots or as i wrote above to add (may be as an option) one large central fan with the voltage regulator and/or automatic temperature control Reply
