Inside the Obsidian 350D
The first look inside of the 350D looks very roomy. The wiring from the front I/O has been tied up behind the tray and is just poking out into the very large CPU back plate access hole. The hardware can be found in the HDD bay on the floor of the chassis in the brown cardboard box.
At the top you are given two 5.25" bays that use tool-free clips on this side of the chassis. Hanging below is a plastic cage that allows for the installation of three 2.5" drives. With the release of a tab and a tug to the center of the case, these bays come off and can be removed or relocated.
The triple rack for the 2.5" drives can be installed in the top of the 3.5" drive rack as well. Inside of the rack you have two plastic trays that accept standard sized spinners.
At the top of the chassis you can see again that there aren't any installed fans from Corsair. It will allow for dual radiator AI/O solutions to be mounted, and you can see the stand-offs are set lower, to allow lots of room for radiator and fans.
The motherboard tray will accept both Mini-ITX as well as Micro-ATX motherboards. There is a "helper" standoff installed in the middle, while all of the others use screws to secure the motherboard. Around the edges you can see four holes with grommets and plenty of places to tie up the limited wiring.
The power supply sets on four raised steel pads, and the ventilation is stretched forward for longer more powerful options, so they can breathe as well. In front of the PSU you have two holes to run wiring through to limit the amount of cables in one smaller hole.
The second fan in the chassis is this plain black 120mm fan. There are no LEDs, and this isn't even a takeoff on their new fans either. Below the fan you will see that the five expansion slot covers are held in with thumbscrews, and the covers are replaceable.
Behind the tray there is a minimum of 25mm of depth to hide and maintain the wiring. When tied to the tie points or crossing over a grommet, you are limited to less room, but there is plenty of room to the left to hide things if you need to.
Untying all of the wiring, we can see that everything is black so they will blend in very well. Besides a pair of 3-pin fan connections that need to be made, you have the front panel wiring to control the motherboard and LEDs, the native USB 3.0 connection and the HD Audio connector to complete the set.
