Corsair Obsidian 750D Full-Tower Chassis

The front bezel has a thick plastic surround with an even gap before you get to all that brushed aluminum. In this design just the three bay covers and the I/O plate cover come off to remove the bay covers and install devices. The lower section also comes off, but is backed with the fans and a dust filter.

Speaking of the front I/O, here it is. On the left there are the 3.5mm jacks for HD Audio and a tiny reset button. On the right you are given a pair of both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports. Right in the middle at the top is the power button with a white LED on the left denoting power, and the one on the right for HDD activity.

The top of the 750D is mostly the mesh cover as the steel wraps around it. Actually this is a magnetic cover that easily peels off to allow access under it for fan or radiator installations.

The left side of the chassis has a steel panel that aligns well with the rest of the chassis. Taking up most of that panel is the large, slightly tined, window that allows almost a full view inside of this chassis.

At the rear of the 750D it starts off with some ventilation above the rear I/O and 140mm fan. Below that are nine expansion slots, and next to it is a pair of knock-outs for tubing. That leaves us with a bottom mounted power supply and the filter that slides out from here.

The right side of the 750D is a solid, textured, black, steel panel. Nothing much to see other than the ding (near the bottom at center) that door took on its way to us.

Under the chassis the 750D has very small rubber pads to secure it on a table, but the chunky support structure of the legs seems to be very stable. There is the dust filter under the PSU, but you can also see room for a pair of optional fans.
