Excerpt: This computer case offers a very clean design with a number of features catering to builders who want a quiet, yet high performance computer with front and side panels equipped with sound insulation along with the top and side vent covers.
Summary: Final Thoughts
Corsair just keeps on impressing me with their cases. This is the 4th Corsair case I have reviewed and I would recommend all of them. That really says a lot about Corsair and what they have set out to do when they announced they were going to be making other products besdies just...
Pros: – Easy installation, – Sleek and silent design, – 3 included fans, – USB 3.0 support
Summary: With many companies offering cases geared toward a silent computing experience, Corsair is going all out, offering the most expensive option in the fray. Clocking in at a price premium when compared to offerings from NZXT, Fractal Design or Cooler Master, the Obsidian 550R still manages to stand out...
Pros: Excellent engineering quality, Solid Aluminium front door, Very good sound dampening materials used, Covers on side and top air vents to maximize silence, Door may swing open to either side, Great external looks, Very well thought out internals, Parted HDD cages, so that you may remove one for lo...
Cons: More expensive than other silent cases on the market, which clock in at 100 - 110 US Dollars, Simple I/O, Silent approach makes for restrictive air flow - especially in the front
Summary: Hopefully by now you can see why I was so eager to bring this to you in hopes that you would see my point of view. I mean there is very little in the "this case doesn't have..." category, especially at this price range.
Conclusion: When optimised for near-silent operation, the Obsidian Series 550D does take a performance hit. The chassis' CPU and GPU cooling capability - at least in its out-the-box state - isn't up there with previous Corsair enclosures, but it's a sacrifice we're more than willing to accept.
Summary: L'Obsidian 550D, a distanza di un anno dal lancio del 650D, si propone come una validissima alternativa a quest'ultimo nel segmento di fascia alta dei Mid Tower di casa Corsair
