    Lightbulb Corsair Obsidian Series 650D PC Case Announced [at CES 2011]

    Source: http://www.legitreviews.com/
    Corsair today announced the Corsair Obsidian Series 650D case, the latest addition to its highly-acclaimed Obsidian Series. With a number of innovative features, the first Obsidian Series case—the 800D—garnered worldwide recognition as one of the most builder-friendly cases available, and quickly became a favorite among water-cooling enthusiasts and case modders alike. The Corsair Obsidian Series 650D is expected to be available in April, 2011, from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers. It has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $199.99 and is supplied with a 2-year warranty. Like all Corsair products, the Obsidian Series 650D is backed by Corsair’s highly regarded customer service and technical support.


    “As soon as the original Obsidian Series 800D full-tower case was launched, we began to receive an unbelievable number of requests for a smaller, mid-tower version. The rich feature set of the 650D is the result of the direct communication we have with our customers,” said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager for Components at Corsair. “We are pleased to be able to work with such passionate customers, and equally enthusiastic engineers, to bring high-quality products like the 650D to market.”
    Nice looking case, in general. Just not sure about the side window border and the door locks...

    I actuaally like this case more than the 800D. I jus wish it had a bit more height to get a nice rad to fit on top.

    Not bad but I don't really like those latch things at the top of the window panel. I do like the rectangular window better than that curved thing on the 800D though.

    This looks like 800D, but that was really on steroid, LOL. This looks more compact, and better suited for a ATX-MB.

    Is this a full size tower? It looks shorter than the 800D. It looks like an air filter in the front. Might be a pain to clean if it is.

    What's wrong with air filters? I've got em on my Antec 300 and they're wonderful. Pretty straight forward to clean as well...really not hard.

    Anyway, I definitely don't like them latches on top of the case, and I think it could have looked a bit better with a slightly larger window. Just my opinion of course

    Nothing wrong with air filters, however they look like they are internal so it might be a pain to clean them.

    It doesn't need to be a pain, and i don't think it would be. My SilverStone Fortress FT01 got a huge 180x32mm fan right there. It sucks a lot of air (100 CFM) and dust follows, but it got a really good and easy-to-remove sliding internal filter too. It has no problem with dust, or cleaning the filter.

    That's a relay nice place to have a big fan (with internal sliding filter). It makes a really good air-flow from front-bottom to the top-back.

    I really wanted an 800D til I saw one in real life. The only difference between the 800D and this is.... I don't even want this one now.

    The catches on the side and the rubber/plastic gasket around the window are ugly as hell. The different colour blacks on the front and side panels just isn't nice either.

    Edit: Credit where credit is due though, about time they got some ventilation in the front.

    thats what I like about them i like the fact that my computer looks like the monolith from 2001 a space odyssey

    i am loving the features and looks of this case. the square window is nice but the side panel latches are kinda crappy. they should have keep the push button system. this is pretty much a 600T but square...

    More pics of this and a bunch of other new Corsair stuff: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...-products.html

    I had a good amount of hands-on time with this case and the construction quality really is top notch.

    That white case looks really nice. I see Corsair is trying to experiment, and it works out damn well!

    Many still are, but I'm not anymore. I grew up and got wiser :p Now a PC has just to run. I don't care anymore how fast it is as long as it is fast enough.

    Different strokes mate. I think it looks fantastic.

    If it had a bigger window and less visible latches, it'd be perfect.

    I love the black interiors on the Corsair cases. I might look into this for my next build. I would've loved to have gotten a 700D but those are taller than my CM Stacker. For something that just needs to fit an ATX motherboard and have enough extra space to comfortably add/remove stuff the 700D's size seems pretty ridiculous.

    they made a white vrsion? wow that sounds cool!
    and you guys want LESS visible features?
    so essentially a square block? without any design whatsoever? and your willing to pay extra for that? 0_o
