Introduction


Product on Review: Obsidian 350D
Manufacturer and Sponsor: Corsair
Street Price: £85 (At time of review)

At one time having an ATX based system housed inside a full tower was the only road to harnessing a powerful computer system. In the last few years, various brands (which chiefly include Intel) have brought high-end components to smaller form factors such as M-ATX. This in turn has paved the way for the ability to build a system half the size but with just as much power as an ATX, full tower counter-part. With M-ATX now being prevalent there is demand for this specification of computer chassis and today we will be taking a look at Corsair’s first attempt at such a case.

The Obsidian series needs no introduction; it has been a popular choice amongst enthusiasts for years now. Joining the series is the 350D – a M-ATX case adopting sleek characteristics whilst delivering on great hardware support and cable management.


Corsair on their Obsidian 350D
The Obsidian Series 350D Micro ATX PC case is designed for building compact high-performance systems with Micro ATX and Mini ITX motherboards. The compact size is ideal if space is limited, but there’s plenty of room inside for liquid CPU cooling, dual hard drives, dual SSDs, and dual full-length graphics cards.

Like all Obsidian cases, the 350D is designed for fast and neat builds, with tool-free access and drive installation. Smart features like a native 2.5” SSD cage make the most of its small size, and the cooling-focused interior has five fan mounting points, with room for two 240mm radiators.
