Corsair Obsidian 250D Case Review

Rating: 9.0.

Today we are going to take a look at the latest case in Corsair’s Obsidian line up, the 250D. This appears to have been designed specifically for those who are looking to build a compact gaming system – therefore putting it in direct competition with the Bitfenix Prodigy.

The Bitfenix Prodigy has become a very popular case amongst the enthusiast audience looking to build a compact gaming PC that is easily transportable to LAN parties and events. Other case manufacturers have recognised this and have designed competing models in response.

Corsair have been producing quality chassis for a few years now and have developed a substantial range in this time. We have been very impressed with their cases we have tested in recent months, so we are interested to see what their first mini-ITX case has to offer.

Briony builds ALL WHITE PC in the Limited Edition DARK BASE 700

Back in 2017 Leo took at look at the Dark Base 700 from Be Quiet! Leo liked the case with its sleek styling and impressively quiet design but thought it was a little on the pricey side. During CES a new version of the case, the 'Limited edition White Dark Base 700' was announced. With only 3000 units available there hasn't been much movement on the price with the case retailing for £166.99. I was sent one of the 3000 cases and was happy to use it to create an all white build and document the whole process on video.
