Intro

Corsair has already launched four cases, but out of these four we've only reviewed the first one - the Obsidian 800D. It was the manufacturer's entry to a new market and a very good one at that. The case aimed at the premium market, was loaded with features and was impressively well put together and sturdy. The only downside of the original Obsidian was the huge size which meant that getting such an enormous case really only made sense to people with water cooling loops. Now corsair has addressed this problem and launched a smaller Obsidian case - the 650D. Lets find out if they've managed to keep all the things that made the 800D such an excellent case!

The case arrived to our lab packed to a brown cardboard box with some very detailed line drawings of the case inside. While smaller than the 800D, make no mistake to think that this is a small case, the box is still very large and due to the mainly steel construction, rather heavy as well.

The specifications support the first impressions, the case measures at 546mm (L) x 229mm (W) x 521mm (H) and somewhat stretches the description of "mid-tower". The construction is similar to the original one, steel frame with aluminum front bezel. For expansion the case offers six 2,5/3,5" hard drive bays and four 5,25" bays. Everything is tool-free and the front panel also packs USB3-connectivity.

 

Bundle

The 800D was a real premium case and came with bells, whistles and extension cables included in the bundle, but the bundle of the 650D has been cut to bare essentials. It includes the necessary mounting hardware, zip ties, user's manual and warranty information.
