CORSAIR Obsidian 750D Computer Case Review

Cases & PSU/Cases by leeghoofd @ 2013-10-03

CORSAIR has established grounds in the enclosure market. At start only with the high end versions  in the form of the Obsidian and Graphite cases. Later on targeting another segment of the market, with the more affordable cases, under the Carbide brand name. The Obsidian series are straight competition for big names as Lian-Li, sporting high build quality, offering maximum hardware compatibility and they are multi GPU ready, plus the possible liquid-cooling options are a big bonus. The mixture of steel and brushed aluminum,  enhances  the rigidity and adds that little extra touch of elegance to the CORSAIR Obsidian enclosures. The brand new 750D model is a full blown tower case and looks at first glance like a trim-down version of the 900D flagship. Nevertheless what is most exciting is, that this case is retailing at the price of a high end Mid-Tower chassis. Time to take a closer look at the CORSAIR 750D Obsidian case.

The brand new Obsidian 750D features a big side panel window, that allows you to show of your neatly installed hardware to the masses. The pictures might not do 100% justice to the case's design, which sports sleekness and elegance, yet assuring maximum hardware compatibility. Both side panels are secured by two thumb screws.




Once the windowed side panel removed we get access to the spacious 750D interior. One would not expect less from a full tower case, yet we have seen designs that lacked some of the clever ideas the CORSAIR engineers integrated in this case.

Let's start off with the storage design: Two removable or modular HDD cages, each allowing to slide in three 3.5” HDDs or SSDs. Either stack the cages or mount them side by side for maximum ventilation or GPU compatibility with ultra-long graphic cards.




The HDD trays are tool-free, the drive just clips in. On the bottom you can spot the 4 screw holes to secure the fixation of a Solid State Drive. The optical drives are also secured via a tool-free clip mechanism. For the die hards, if needed, you can further secure the drives with screws.
