Over the past year we have been seeing a massive change in the way the component industry looks at the Mini-ITX form factor. Mini-ITX no longer means low power and extremely limited component choice – nowadays you can build a high end desktop in a tiny...

On the box for the 250D, Corsair says “If you want to build a Mini ITX system without compromising expansion, flexibility, or performance, the Obsidian Series 250D is your answer.” And this is in fact true: you will not compromise expansion, flexibility,...

Overall the Corsair Obsidian 250 is a great chassis if you're looking for a mini-ITX chassis. Although it is designed for a mini-ITX motherboard which is mainly a small form factor motherboard, the 250D is pushing the limits of SFF. The Corsair Obsidian...

We have to admit that on opening the box, we got pretty excited with the Obsidian 250D. Its water-cooling potential all but matches the BitFenix Prodigy despite being smaller, it has excellent GPU cooling and while it's CPU cooling isn't amazing, it...

All factors combined makes us think that the Obsidian 250D from Corsair is a very funky product. It looks really nice and comes with features that you typically only find starting at the more high-end mid-towers. Next to that the build quality is good...

It has taken the best part of five years for Corsair to add a Mini ITX chassis to its burgeoning product line. This prolonged absence from a growing market opened the door for rivals, who were quick to fill the gap with high-performance solutions that...

The current trend of unleashing mITX cases onto the community is overwhelming. The Fractal Node 304 was a great example how it could be done, though it had one major setback and that was the omission of the optical drive in favor of more storage...

When compared to Mini-ITX cases designed with compactness in mind, for living rooms and narrow spaces, the volume difference is vast. For example, the Obsidian 250D requires four times more volume than the Silverstone Milo ML05, a case designed for HTPC...

So here it is. Corsair's first stab at a Mini-ITX chassis—something cut from the same cloth as its other cases, but much more compact. It's a solid start, no doubt about it. The 250D combines small-form-factor dimensions with the amenities of larger...

Como hemos visto, la Corsair 250D, es una caja, llena de matices, con un rediseño dentro de las caja de pequeño formato o mini-ITX, si fuera un coche diríamos que es un Mini, pequeño por fuera y espacioso por dentro. Pero ello hace que sea una caja de...
