Corsair Obsidian 350D Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅07-05-13

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 range.

350D is certainly one of the larger M-ATX cases out there and regardless of whether this is seen as a downside or not, the space within the chassis makes way for a plethora of high-end hardware which includes big CPU coolers and long graphics cards.

We were pleased to see that Corsair have furnished 350D with numerous cable management grommets and hooks. Cable management is a particular area where many M-ATX cases fall short, but as you have seen over the preceding pages, 350D is favourable in this department.

Corsair have cleverly priced 350D in a position which will put it directly in the spotlight and declare itself as the key adversary within the M-ATX category. 350D can be purchased for £85, many other cases of the same material, qualities and features are priced close to the £100 mark.

The 350D is Corsair’s first attempt at a M-ATX case and we really like what they have brought to the table. We are sure 350D will establish itself as a firm favourite with enthusiasts who choose to use the smaller form factor but still love the classic Obsidian appearance.
