Corsair is one of those companies that needs no introduction, and for that matter, if you haven't seen or heard of the Obsidian series by now, you really need to get out from under that rock. Over the years I have seen what started with the 800D, a chassis well ahead of its time, and has since blossomed into, at my last count, six variations now on the elegance that is the Obsidian.
We also just took a look at the 900D not too long ago, and with that design, they took the 800D to all new heights and solved a ton of the issues that plagued the design of the 800D. This just goes to show that Corsair isn't sitting on their laurels and depending on one or two cases to fit everyone's needs. They almost have a sixth sense to what the masses want, and are able to keep producing solutions to keep up with these needs.
Where most of the Obsidian cases are designed really well, I know firsthand that building in the 800D and the 900D, while both huge cases, takes quite a bit of pre-planning to get everything in right, and not have a complete mess on your hands when you are done. This time around, things are a touch different in the aspect of designing the latest chassis to be offered in this series. Things like modular drive bays, new side mounted SSD trays, tool-free clips and HDD trays, push button front panel to access the dust filter, at any angle you look at the latest Obsidian, you can tell it is designed for speedy builds in a chassis that is designed to make thing both quick and easy. Gone are a lot of the things that bombed on the 800D, but the 900D lends its design elements, with plenty of water cooling capability in this new design too. So if you want to try to complicate things, Corsair has you covered here too.
At first glance the Obsidian 750D we are looking at today does resemble the rest of the cases on the outside, but with our windowed version we are testing, it is easy to see that Corsair stuck with the newer, much larger, tinted window offering with this design. Inside of the chassis you are going to find all the things that make case builders all warm and fuzzy, with plenty of room to fill this chassis with some serious amounts of hardware. On top of that there are the new design elements that make this super simple to rearrange or customize to fit your specific needs, but to see it all, you must hang tight as we get through the specifications and packaging on the next page.
