The Obsidian 650D is a high quality case in all respects. Its subtle styling is very attractive, its installation and thermal performance are commendable and it has all the trappings your average enthusiast might demand in a chassis.

Having inspected every nook and cranny of the Corsair Obsidian 650D, we have no doubt it's a high-quality product that shines in virtually every category. Perhaps the only true weakness of Corsair's new arrival is its price. At $190, we're inclined to...

There are some little things wrong with the Obsidian 650D case, as there are with most every case. But, there are a lot of big things right with this case. It's easy to get into. It has four USB ports on the front. It has a hot swap bay for hard...

Corsair pretty much stormed out of the gate when they entered the enclosure market, starting at the top with the Obsidian 800D and gradually working their way down, and each case has been well-received. Their first "budget" offering was still...

The Corsair 650D was a pleasure to work with while reviewing it. The 650D oozes class with the brushed black exterior, which helps show the quality and pride Corsair takes in making their cases. The stealth I/O ports were a nice touch to help keep...

So how would you go about creating a smaller case of an already excellent one and diversify your case line-up at the same time? Ask Corsair. They have not only managed to impress with the Graphite 600T (which is also available in white!), but have...

When we visited Corsair at CES back in January their big thing is that they wanted to be in the top tier of each type of product they produce. Many companies claim that they want to do that, but Corsair has really done it, especially with their...

As I mentioned in the introduction to this review, the original Obsidian 800D is my all time favorite case. The only real issues with that chassis are its full size stature and the price tag. Not everyone has a use for a full size ATX case nor do...

I'll start off by saying that, although the results from the testing aren't astonishing on the graphs themselves, this is only because of the small spreads of only a few degrees in each test. Even having one or two degrees difference, which isn't...

The Corsair Obsidian 650D is a very classy case, some people would even call it sexy, and even though it's a mid-tower, the interior is spacious enough to hold today's largest graphics cards and power supplies without having to remove one of the hard...

The performance of a case is all about its cooling prowess and the noise it makes while doing so. The 650D is setup to keep every system but the most extreme overclockers cool using two 200mm fans and one 120mm fan. These together provide a total of...

and ScoreCorsair has come out of the gate at full force with the designs of the cases they have. Who would have thought that a Memory/PSU maker could even make a half decent case. I mean there are others out there that only make cases and they can...

Corsair's Obsidian Line of Cases has proven itself to be almost the go to line for computer enthusiasts and today is no exception; the Obsidian Series 650D is the one of the best cases I have worked with yet....

The 650D is the hybrid many have been waiting for. It combines the features of the 600T but adopts the professional, sleek styling of the 800D. The 650D is the first mid-tower inside the Obsidian series and offers this ‘fusion’ at a lower cost than...

to the Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Mid-Tower People saw a new breath of life given to the world of PC cases when Corsair released the Obsidian 800D. When released the 800D became the new standard in PC cases, being the benchmark in which everyone...

A good way to describe Corsair's Obsidian Series 650D would be as a Graphite Series 600T wearing a tuxedo. Things are more or less the same under the hood, but the 650D replaces smooth curves with square edges and has no LEDs to draw attention to...

Corsair has had a good run as of late with a host of new products that fall WELL outside the original memory vendor stereotype. I mean, seriously? We have had cases like the Obsidian 800D, power supplies like the HX1000W, headphones and speakers...

I've been waiting for the Obsidian 650D for a good while now, and was really excited to get my hands on it. The idea was to get 800D quality and attention to detail at more reasonable size and price, and the 650D pulled it off just as I'd hoped. The...

By HardwareHeaven on 100

With the 800D and 700D Corsair had set the bar exceedingly high and this newest entry into the Obsidian range certainly had a lot to live up to. So we were delighted to find that the high quality of the previous cases has been carried on with the...

For those of you with space constraints but want the look and quality of the Obsidian 800D, this is the case for you! Clearly, this is a well-thought-out case, so I'm not sure how the team missed the bottom hard drive tray being rendered useless when...
