Corsair 2000D: Gaming expert presents new case series
Corsair has launched a new case series. With the compact 2000D series, the expert for gaming cases and peripherals wants to appeal to all those who do not want to sacrifice too much space for their PC. One highlight of the Corsair 2000D series should definitely be the possibility to accommodate full-fledged triple-slot graphics cards. This should even make it possible to build SFF PCs.

Corsair 2000D comes in a small form factor
The recently presented latest case series from the house of Corsair comes in two different designs. Thus, the gaming expert brings the pleasantly compact cases once as 2000D Airflow and the other as 2000D RGB Airflow to the start. Both models of the mini-ITX case will be available in black or white. As the name already suggests, the new additions rely on a very good airflow. In order to maximize air circulation, steel grill plates can be removed here.
On top of that, the cases come with three pre-installed fans ex works. While the RGB version is CORSAIR AF120 RGB SLIM fans, the standard version comes with fans without corresponding lighting. The manufacturer places the guarantors for cool hardware in the front intake of its case. In the Corsair D2000 RGB Airflow, you benefit from the customizable lighting. Here, the fans offer eight RGB LEDs each ex works, which you can regulate individually using the in-house Corsair iCUE software.
Lots of space in a compact chassis
The pre-installed slim fans are brand new models, which are supposed to provide space for the rest of the hardware with their small format. And there doesn’t seem to be a lack of space in the Corsair D2000 cases. Not only a graphics card with a length of up to 365 mm can be accommodated here. If you want to use high-end hardware, you can also install a powerful SFX-L power supply with a length of up to 360 mm. On top of that, mounting a large all-in-one CPU liquid cooling is no problem. When you consider that the 24.4-liter case takes up just the footprint of 271 mm x 200 mm on your desk, that’s truly remarkable. If you want to maximize the airflow to cool the powerful components more effectively, you can adjust the case accordingly.
Thus, it should be possible to remove not only the front, but also the sides and roof covers. As a result, almost the entire interior of the case can be effectively cooled to prevent overheating. In order to maximize the cooling performance, additional fans can be installed in the interior besides the three pre-installed fans. A total of eight 120 mm fans can be installed in the case. In addition, a 360 mm fan can be installed on the side and a 240 mm fan on the rear. To what extent you can exhaust the cooling possibilities depends on the size of the graphics card, though. Since the cooling fans are missing ex-works, PC hobbyists should be able to put together their personal cooling configuration completely freely.

When it comes to connectivity, the Corsair 2000D series also scores high on its spec sheet. The manufacturer relies on an I/O port on the front here, which has the most important ports. In addition to 1x USB-C (USB 3.2 Gen2), 2x USB-A (USB 3.0) as well as a 3.5 mm jack for the headset are located here. Space for up to three 2.5-inch SSDs in the interior also ensures the creation of sufficient storage space.
Price and Availability
Corsair is now offering its new products on its in-house website. For its standard version in the form of the Corsair 2000D Airflow, the gaming expert charges an MSRP of 124.90 euros. For the Corsair 2000D RGB Airflow, on the other hand, you’ll have to go the extra mile with an MSRP of 169.90 euros. Fans of chic RGB optics will certainly find the extra price worth it.
