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.

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.

Corsair Obsidian 650D: Transmuting Graphite to Obsidian

AnandTech
13 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.

[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.

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.
  • 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!
  • 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,...
  • 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 Case Review

TechSpot
7 July 2011
  • Summary: 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...

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.
  • 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 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.

Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Mid-Tower Computer Case

Modders-Inc
30 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass and it is produced when the felsic lava from a volcano cools rapidly. So something so hot can be really cool looking, can we say that about the Obsidian 650D from Corsair? You should be able to make that judgement call after this review.
  • Pros: Two 200mm cooling fans, Multiple Function top panel for cooling hardware, Easy to install hard drives and bay devices, Top mounted SATA Hot Swap, Front USB 3.0 ports, Solid construction
  • Cons: Side panel latches look out of place for Obsidian Series case
