Excerpt: Today we take a look at the Obsidian 750D an enthusiast full tower case that looks to offer great flexibility for components and advanced cooling while offering affordability and a modest size.
Summary: There is very little wrong with the Corsair Obsidian 750D. It is well-sized, offers excellent water-cooling possibilities, boasts a few unique features—all with a good mix of materials. The ability to hold a wide array of motherboards in combination with several cooling options really shows that the Obsidian 750D caters to high-end enthusiast.

Excerpt: Earlier this year Corsair introduced a new high-end chassis called the Obsidian 900D. It was positioned above the old flagship model, the 800D. Today we're taking a closer look at the Obsidian 750D, the best desktop tower Corsair has ever designed in our opinion. Considering how high Corsair set the bar in the past, that is quite the achievement.
Summary: Corsair’s Obsidian 750D is not only a fantastic case to work with and looks great, but it also has an awesome price point for what you get. The flaws observed are quite minor and can be easily overlooked.
Excerpt: The 750D is Corsair’s latest addition to their top of the line Obsidian Series and is the third new Obsidian case for 2013. The new 750D is a full-tower enclosure that offers a little more room, enhanced cooling, with expanded drive mounting options, than Corsair’s ever popular 650D mid-tower enclosure. The 750D is being introduced with an MSRP of $159.99 USD, which also makes it a little less expensive than the 650D.
Summary: Let me start my closing arguments with the dislikes and get them out of the way. First of all, seriously, how do you forget about the need for screws to mount a power supply? In a $40 case I might let that slide, but for this amount of money, I can't just let that go. On a personal level, I am not a fan of what is left when the bay covers are removed. The sleek elegance of the front panel to me is destroyed once you break up what is otherwise continuous brushed aluminum.
Summary: CORSAIR has established grounds in the enclosure market. At start only with the high end versions in the form of the Obsidian and Graphite cases. Later on targeting another segment of the market, with the more affordable cases, under the Carbide brand name. The Obsidian series are straight competition for big names as Lian-Li, sporting high build quality, offering maximum hardware compatibility and they are multi GPU ready, plus the possible liquid-cooling options are a...
Excerpt: It's been some time now since I last looked at a case. At last, the wait is over. Today, I'm looking at the newest addition to Corsair's Obsidian line of cases, the 750D. This is an aluminum full tower case intended to be a more entry level option for those of you who want aluminum but don't want to pay for a ton of extra features. Let's see what it's all about.
Corsair Obsidian Series 750D Full Tower Case Review
26 September 2013
Summary: There is no question about it, we really, really like the Corsair Obsidian Series 750D. That said, there are a few things that need to be addressed. First of all, the lack of a fan speed switch or fan hubs is disappointing but, this is something that can easily be remedied by the end user. The PSU supports are not padded or coated in any way. This leads to vibration because the power supply makes direct contact with the metal case.
