Branded the Obsidian 350D, the newcomer crams its sibling's features into an affordable microATX package and sports the same clean, black brushed-aluminum finish, handy tool-free design and innovative cable management. While the base 350D is available for around $90, a second edition goes for $110 and has a window (as indicated by the addition of a W to the model number: 350DW).
Both editions are enthusiast-worthy, with enough internal space for liquid cooling, several 2.5", 3.5" and 5.25" drives as well as dual full-length graphics cards, five expansion slots and five fan mounting points that have room for two 240mm radiators. Between its features, price and our affinity for tiny cases, the 350D has the potential to become one of our top picks -- certainly among Corsair's own offerings.
The Corsair Obsidian 350D is an affordable microATX case sporting the same black brushed-aluminum finish, handy tool-free design and innovative cable management of it's predeccesor.
