Branded the Obsidian 350D, Corsair's newcomer crams its more expensive 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.

Five years ago if you were on the market for a case there were really only a few directions to go. More recently this has changed considerably; there are so many manufactures that weren't even in the market five years ago. One of those manufactures is...

I originally acquired this case for a build project, but it didn't arrive in time. Instead I've warranted it as interesting enough to get a stand-alone review. The original Corsair Obsidian 800D was a full tower chassis that many people admired for its...

the design is timeless and the case would look decent on, as well as underneath a desk We would even go to the point to say, that installing a 525 inch drive would ruin the looks of the front Design  Recommendation Should you be looking for a mATX...

While everyone has been trying to build awesome Mini-ITX systems over the past year there has been just as many people building Micro-ATX systems. Mirco-ATX definitely has the benefit over Mini-ITX as far as performance and the ability to have more than...

Throughout this review, we've said that the Obsidian Series 350D is very similar to Corsair's other cases. That may be an obvious observation, but it bears repeating. The only major difference between this enclosure and Corsair's other specimens is the...

The Corsair 350D is a great quality case for the price. There are a few things we have a hard time getting past, like the omission of PSU screws and the weird look of the front panel with an optical drive installed. The whole look of the front panel...

With the 350D, the iconic Obsidian series is making the crossover into the quickly expanding mATX form factor market. While it may be small, this case still has all the hallmarks we’ve come to expect from...

From a performance standpoint, the Obsidian Series 350D has plenty to offer. With room for multiple graphics cards, up-to three radiators and seven drive bays, this is a chassis that makes most other micro-ATX solutions look timid in comparison. Yet, as...

The Corsair Obsidian 350D has classic style and a rich blood line. The quality is top notch, which is no surprise from Corsair. I was impressed with the available space in a smaller case, and the cable management was right on the mark. The airflow is...

Even a simple slider positioned on the front IO panel, combined with a basic variable resistor, would have been better than no fan controller. Instead, users are forced to either purchase a stand-alone unit, or resort to motherboard-controlled fans that make low noise operation difficult to achieve.

In terms of price, the Obsidian 350D's £95 price tag makes it one of the pricier micro-ATX cases we've tested. SilverStone's FT03 costs a bit more, but the likes of NZXT's Vulcan, SilverStone's SG09, SG08-E and Fractal Design's Arc Mini are all...

The Obsidian 350D performs superbly keeping an i5-3570K under 50C after 30 minutes of prime95 and the GTX 580 under 85C after 30 min of Furmark all of this while keeping extremely quiet. This is exactly what I expect out of a case, it keeps my system...

The Corsair Obsidian 350D is really hit and miss with me and I ponder what to say and how to address this case. While the external visual appeal is definitely Obsidian through and through, I feel that it is lost in the interior. Obsidian to me is...

The Obsidian series has always had a strong following not least because of the super clean aesthetics and professional appearance. Being a popular choice for enthusiasts it’s easy to see why Corsair have included their first M-ATX case within this...

If you need a case for your next PC build, the chances are good that Corsair has a model that you'll like. Ranging from the obscenely large Obsidian 900D to the $69 Carbide 200R and just about everything in between, Corsair has a ton of options ...

This a very appealing product to opt for or at the very least think about if are in the market for a small form factor PC that kicks ass. Very much recommended.

It is time to wrap things up. We feel that the 350D is a very nice product. It just looks great oozes with features and seems to be of nice build quality. You are of course restricted to the smaller form factor motherboards, but the end result can be a...

No one else is going to give you a micro-ATX case with a 280mm radiator mount, let alone one as well built and easy to use as this one is, and Corsair's not gouging you for it, either. I'd say that makes it Bronze Editor's Choice award material.
