The Obsidian 450D is Corsair's latest mid-tower case. The 450D features a traditional tower case design providing high airflow and plenty of cooling flexibility. It  sports seven expansion slots and three one-inch holes for water-cooling hoses, while the power supply bracket is at the bottom of the case - the norm these days.

As bummed as we are that Corsair only provided support for two 3.5" drives in a case that can clearly fit more, we still prefer the Air 540 to the 450D. In fact, we prefer it to a number of cases that seem better on paper. The Air 540 is a great looking case, it performs well, it's quiet and it's really easy to work with.

Corsair is pumping out cases at a high pace; one could think this leads to a lesser design or a lower build quality. Corsair wouldn't be Corsair if every detail hasn't been verified twice. The today tested Obsidian 450D is a high quality mid-tower...

This is a good, effective case however the stock fans are too noisy. It doesn’t take much work to fix it up but that shouldn’t be...

Except for the mesh front panel and two less USB ports the Corsair 450D is basically a smaller version of the 750D. With a price of £90 it's not the cheapest if you're looking for a mid range case but it's also not the most expensive option. For...

Corsair designed the Obsidian 450D with a single purpose in mind; to create a mid-tower version of the Obsidian series and bridge the gap between small and huge cases. One could even wonder why they did not release it sooner, as the mid-tower is the...

Corsair continues to make cases that are easy to work with and have all the necessary features, and the 450D is no exception. While it's not the best fit for a low-noise solution, enthusiasts and gamers will have plenty to work with.

the design is timeless and the case would look decent on, as well as underneath, any desk We would even go to the point to say that installing a 525 inch drive would ruin the looks of the front Even on the inside, Corsair has used a cool solution for...

I would like to thank Corsair for supplying the review sample. We are taking a look at the Corsair Obsidian 450D today, which expands upon the already fairly large Obsidian line of cases. Going from the top, there is the 900D, 800D, 750D, 650D, 550D,...

The Obsidian Series 450D Mid-Tower case shares many of the same design elements present on Corsair’s popular Obsidian 350D micro-ATX chassis, 750D Full-Tower and the 900D Super-Tower enclosures. The Obsidian 450D case can easily accommodate one or...

I have a tendency to be somewhat cynical, so I'll admit that my eyes rolled when I heard that Corsair was adding yet another case to its Obsidian Series lineup. However, the 450D does fill an important gap between the 350D and 750D. It brings the ATX...

It was only weeks ago when we were casting a critical eye over Obsidian 250D and yet again we have another case from this series under the spotlight. 450D could be easily mistaken for any of the other models within the Obsidian series because of the...

Clearly even with a modest air cooler, the Obsidian 450D makes for a great air-cooled case but add in an all-in-one liquid cooler or even custom water cooling and the sky is the limit. The fact the case is so water cooling-friendly yet boasts very...

“The Obsidian series has long been one of the best chassis ranges on the market and their latest addition doesn't disappoint. The 450D may sit near the middle of the Obsidian range, but it's by far one of my favourites so far. There are a lot of great...

Corsair is parachuting their new Obsidian 450D into a crowded market but with its impressive feature list, this case should have what it takes to become...

For the past couple of years, Corsair has enjoyed success in the mid-tower chassis market with award-winning enclosures such as the Graphite Series 600T and Obsidian Series 650D. Both options continue to have plenty to offer, but the £140 price tag is...

Available starting in April 2014, the Obsidian 450D follows the design tradition of the Obsidian line, keeping things simple, stylish and highly versitile. The front bezel has a layer of brush aluminum which makes it look expensive. The cooling options...

Con un costo de 120 dólares en el mercado aproximadamente el Corsair Obsidian 450D es una excelente opción para aquel usuario que se quedo con las ganas de un gabinete más reducido que el Corsair Obsidian 750D pero más grande que el popular Corsair...

Under förra året påbörjade Corsair utrullningen av sin uppfräschade Obsidian-serie, där de gamla modellerna från bland annat 2009 ersattes av mer moderna varianter. I samma veva passade även företaget på att bredda serien med fler storlekar, vilket...

Corsair ne s'est pas raté avec son nouveau rejeton de la gamme Obsidian. Le 450D est en effet digne de ses ainés. Il possède toutes les qualités de ses prédécesseurs, telle la robustesse, l'intelligence de conception, la qualité de fabrication ou encore...
