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
  • Summary: Corsair’s 650D is an elegant, refined, and extremely accessible case that is easy on the eyes and the wallet. For $200, you get a case that’s technologically up to snuff, while being classy and sleek, to boot. The only things we could ask for are side intake fans—our test build got a little warm inside.
  • Pros: She's a beaut; nice stock cooling; entertains lots of cooling options
  • Cons: PCI slots aren't toolless; could use side fans

Expert Review

Tweak Town
16 May 2011
  • Excerpt: From the onset of the Obsidian series Corsair has had a trend setting chassis with the release of the 800D. This chassis is outright huge and offers room for everything you need and some. Wire management is top notch and the case is loaded with features. Flat out, there hasn't yet been a chassis I have seen that has made me want to give up my 800D.

Corsair Obsidian 650D Case Review

KitGuru
11 July 2011
  • Excerpt: 2 Flares 2 Flares × Corsair is a relatively new player in the case market as they’ve only been selling cases for about two years.  But every case they’ve produced to date has been very well received by enthusiasts and most have won a number of prestigious awards.  In fact, their Graphite 600T case won our sought after ‘Must Have’ award when we reviewed it last year.

Corsair Obsidian 650D : la classe non è acqua

NextHardware
19 May 2011
  • Summary: Il 650D è il terzo case della famiglia Obsidian che abbiamo avuto modo di recensire e, come già avvenuto per gli altri modelli, non possiamo che complimentarci con Corsair per l’ottimo lavoro svolto. Il cabinet riesce ad offrire, nonostante le dimensioni ridotte rispetto ai fratelli maggiori, ottime doti di accessibilità e di espandibilità.
