Corsair Obsidian 650D

  • Excerpt: Not too long ago, I had a look at my very first Corsair case in the Obsidian Series 550D. That little guy turned out to be quite the fantastic little case. Now, it's big brother's turn... I have the 650D in the house, and I'm going to see how it measures up. With features like a four channel fan controller, a pair of 200mm cooling fans, and a SATA3 hard drive dock, it should be pretty impressive. We're going to find out how impressive right now.

Corsair Obsidian 650D: Transmuting Graphite to Obsidian

AnandTech
29 July 2011
  • Conclusion: I'm not particularly happy with the results of Corsair's Obsidian 650D. I love everything else about the case: I love how it looks, I love how easy it is to assemble, I love how feature rich it is, and I love how clean the installations are by virtue of Corsair's smart internal layout. The 650D is a great looking case and makes a convincing argument for spending up over the 600T (although I do still like the curved accents of the 600T's design.

Corsair Obsidian 650D Mid-Tower Case

Pro-Clockers
20 July 2011
  • Excerpt: The Obsidian series sports a style where the features seem to have a simple, or rather a subtle, appearance and makes it hard not to like. Currently, the series consist of three models: 800D, 700D and the 650D, the latter of which we get to bring to all of you today. The 650D is physically smaller than the others but still possesses all of the same styling characteristics.

[Review] Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Mid-Tower Case

TechREACTION
13 July 2011
  • Conclusion: The Corsair 650D was a pleasure to work with while reviewing it. The 650D oozes class with the brushed black exterior, which helps show the quality and pride Corsair takes in making their cases. The stealth I/O ports were a nice touch to help keep the clean, minimalistic look on the front. The top hot-swap bay is a nice addition to the 650D, making it simple  for the average person (or lazy power user).

Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Case Review

TechSpot
12 July 2011
  • Conclusion: At least a couple premium mid-towers can be directly compared to the Obsidian 650D in terms of design and features -- namely the Antec LanBoy Air and Silverstone Fortress FT01-BW. You can read our review of the LanBoy Air for our full analysis, but to keep things short and sweet we'll just say that we don't care for it much, and the Fortress FT01-BW costs even more ( ~$210 ) than the 650D.

Corsair Obsidian 650D Computer Case

Benchmark Reviews
12 July 2011
  • Conclusion: The performance of a case is all about its cooling prowess and the noise it makes while doing so. The 650D is setup to keep every system but the most extreme overclockers cool using two 200mm fans and one 120mm fan. These together provide a total of over 250CFM of air through this case. At the same time it does this while being one of the quietest systems I have worked with. I love the steel, and brushed aluminum exterior of 650D.
  • Pros: Well built, Easy to work in, Great cable managment, Quiet, Gourgeous Exterior, Able to support complicated water cooling setups

Corsair Obsidian 650D

techPowerUp!
12 July 2011
  • Summary: So how would you go about creating a smaller case of an already excellent one and diversify your case line-up at the same time? Ask Corsair. They have not only managed to impress with the Graphite 600T (which is also available in white!), but have ported the great feature set found within that case and infused it into a new chassis worthy of the Obsidian name tag.
  • Pros: Excellent engineering quality, Great external looks, Excellent paint job, Functional hot-swap bay, Large clips to hold the side panels in place, Very well thought out internals, New and unique locking mechanism for ODDs, Excellent cable management possibilities, Plenty of space for water cooling, Spacious interior, USB 3.0 connectivity, Large opening in the mainboard tray, Can hold large graphics cards and CPU coolers without losing HDD bays, Eight mainboard expansion...
  • Cons: No real dust filter in front, You will loose LED feature if you replace the fans, No adapter for USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 header included

Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Mid Tower Case Review

ThinkComputers
5 July 2011
  • Summary: Final Thoughts When we visited Corsair at CES back in January their big thing is that they wanted to be in the top tier of each type of product they produce.  Many companies claim that they want to do that, but Corsair has really done it, especially with their cases.  This is the third case we have reviewed from Corsair and just like the previous cases I am very impressed.
  • Pros: – Quality design and construction, – Latches make taking side panels off simple, – Toolless installation, – A lot of room inside, – Great cooling
  • Cons: – USB 3.0 connectors are external not internal

Corsair 650D Review

maximum pc
13 June 2011
  • Excerpt: We don’t like to make recommendations right off the bat—part of the fun of reading these reviews (we’d imagine) comes from the buildup (ha!). But the Corsair 650D blew us away in pretty much every category. For the 650D, Corsair took the guts of its 600T mid-tower chassis and married them with the looks of its Obsidian-series full-towers, a move customers (and we) have been requesting for years.
  • Pros: She's a beaut; nice stock cooling; entertains lots of cooling options
  • Cons: PCI slots aren't toolless; could use side fans

Corsair Obsidian 650D Midtower Chassis

OverClock Intelligence Agency
9 June 2011
  • Summary: As I mentioned in the introduction to this review, the original Obsidian 800D is my all time favorite case. The only real issues with that chassis are its full size stature and the price tag. Not everyone has a use for a full size ATX case nor do they want to haul one around to a LAN party. Additionally, the premium on such a case will keep many potential buyers at bay.
