Corsair Obsidian 650D Case Review

Rating: 9.5.

Corsair is a relatively new player in the case market as they’ve only been selling cases for about two years.  But every case they’ve produced to date has been very well received by enthusiasts and most have won a number of prestigious awards.  In fact, their Graphite 600T case won our sought after ‘Must Have’ award when we reviewed it last year.

Today we are going to look at the Corsair Obsidian 650D Mid-Tower case which is the smallest model in the Obsidian range.  It shares the same styling cues as the larger 700D and 800D cases but comes in at a much more affordable price point.  It doesn’t look like Corsair have compromised much on the feature set to achieve this lower price, though, so we are excited to look at the case in more detail.
