Corsair Obsidian 650D Mid-Tower Case Review
During our recent gaming case roundup, we compared six unique enclosures spanning from BitFenix's $60 Shinobi mid-tower to the Cooler Master's $200 HAF X full-tower. Shortly after publishing that review, some of you were disappointed that we didn't include something from Corsair's popular Obsidian series, especially its new Obsidian 650D.
Corsair released its first case some two years ago with the $299 Obsidian 800D, which garnered a massive following among enthusiasts. With its boxy, yet elegant design and a clean matte black finish, it's seems likely that Corsair was at least somewhat inspired by Lian-Li's minimalist approach. In fact, it's fair to say that Corsair even improved the formula, as many rated the 800D ahead of similarly priced Lian-Li cases.
In many ways, the Obsidian 650D is a miniature version of the 800D, so we can understand why it has many of you swooning. Though at $190 you will have a difficult time justifying its price as it's one of the more expensive mid-towers around. Beyond this price point, the market is largely dominated by Lian-Li and we suspect most users looking to spend north of $200 on a chassis will want to spring for a full-tower model.
Although we're sure it's no pushover, the 650D definitely has a lot to prove, let's move on to see what Corsair's new mid-tower brings to the table...
