  • Summary: Originally, the Obsidian series cases were large full-towers, consistently developed as cases for extreme high-end hardware. The current culmination of this development was the Obsidian Series 900D: a double chamber case which could effortlessly accomodate HPTX motherboards, and even a powerful...

  • Summary: Corsair introduced early this year at the CES fair another case to the strong Obsidian lineup: the Obsidian 450D. Being labeled as the smaller 750D variant it blends in perfectly between the existing range from the humongous full-tower 900D model to the cube shaped Obsidian 250D.

Corsair Obsidian 450D review

10 April 2014
  • Summary: The Obsidian 450D completes the lineup really, it is not a chassis that is groundbreaking in new features. Contrary, it is more of the same yet in a different form-factor. From A to Z though the Obsidian 450D is a chassis within a well thought through concept.

Corsair Obsidian 450D Case Review

  • Conclusion: With the Obsidian 450D, Corsair attempted to fill the gap between the Micro-ATX 350D and the very large 750D of the same series with a mid-tower case of normal proportions. Yes, they already have half a dozen mid-tower cases available, such as the Graphite 230T and the Carbide 300R, but only the...

  • Summary: I have a tendency to be somewhat cynical, so I'll admit that my eyes rolled when I heard that Corsair was adding yet another case to its Obsidian Series lineup. However, the 450D does fill an important gap between the 350D and 750D.

25 March 2014
  • Conclusion: For the past couple of years, Corsair has enjoyed success in the mid-tower chassis market with award-winning enclosures such as the Graphite Series 600T and Obsidian Series 650D. Both options continue to have plenty to offer, but the £140 price tag is overshadowing the company's earlier efforts.

25 March 2014
  • Conclusion: There is a lot to love about this case and very little I can find fault with. Actually, if I’m honest there isn’t anything I found fault with, the whole thing is pretty perfect! It’s not often I come across a product where there isn’t at least one small detail that I wasn’t happy with, but Corsair...
