Corsair Obsidian 650D Mid Tower Case Review

Inside the Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Mid Tower Case




This has to be the cleanest case I have ever opened out of the box. Both all of the hardware and paperwork are tucked in a bag in the optical bays. All of the wiring is also in here and wrapped super tight, not allowing them to move much at all during transit.




There are actually five 5.25" bays, but the wiring and the front I/O take up the top one. The following four bays all have removable covers and a tool-free latch on this side. Below is the pair of three drive trays for the hard drives.




Removing four screws, the whole rack is removable, and you can configure the case to suit your specific needs. Now you can see the 200mm intake fan as well.




The motherboard tray is clearly labeled for both ATX or m-ATX motherboards and offers quite a few wire management holes with rubber grommets to give it the same clean and finished look of other Obsidians.




The rear of the chassis will allow for a 140mm fan but the 120mm you see here is what comes shipped in the chassis. The expansion cards get held in with thumbscrews, and of course any standard PS2 power supply mounts on the floor.




On the left there is the adjustable power supply support. Install the PSU, then slide this under the front and replace the thumb screws. To the right are three holes to allow a place to set one of the hard drive racks as an option.




Behind the tray there is plenty of room for thick wiring. Since the door panels load from the bottom first, it makes tucking wires in while you shut the door much easier too.




I love that you get an all black chassis and every wire in the chassis matches. This to me makes the finished build that much nicer to look at without a rainbow of colors like we see in a lot of others.
