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.

A Closer Look Part II

Cable management is no brainer with the Obsidian 750D, thanks to the numerous and well dimensioned cutouts. Of course as it fits a high standard case, rubber grommets are included. On the backside of the motherboard tray there is about 25mm of space to tuck away them nasty power supply cables.





A humongous cutout to facilitate the installation of processor coolers without the need of removing the motherboard. In the top of the motherboard tray we spot two extra well dimensioned holes to route the 8 pin CPU power plugs and multiple fan cables.

The power supply is not supported by rubber anti vibration dampers, which is a surprisingly missing feature in this 750D. A fan controller would also top this case off, especially if most will build in a high end water-cooling setups, an integrated two or three speed fan controller would be a real bonus.





The front I/O panel includes the usual in and out jacks for the audio, a tiny reset button on the left hand portion. Two blue USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports on the right hand side. The on/off button is located in between the power on and HDD LED.
