[TPU] Corsair Obsidian 350D M-ATX Chassis Pictured - Page 3

post #21 of 914
Looks nice, but I prefer my Define Mini. Wish they would cover up them drive openings on the front, then it'd be near perfect. Also a smaller window. I wish my Define Mini had a window. Still a great looking case.

Ventilation includes two 140 mm fan vents on the top, to which radiators can be latched on to (one 140 mm spinner included), and a rear 120 mm fan (included)

No front intake doesn't make any sense, maybe they want everything to be water cooled?

Not bad. I'm not a fan of (giant) windows in cases though. Give an option (in whatever form) to obtain a second solid side panel, and it'll be a good case.

There is one available at stock with solid side panel (I would assume).

Solid side:

I assume that the gap all the way around the front edges contains opening to allow air drawn in, and maybe the bottom has a vent opening as well? but Corsair do seem to prefer the water cooling approach and I think it makes a lot of sense, there are other good air cooling cases so Corsair have created their own niche. There isn't so much choice in understated cases that are designed from the beginning to make water cooling easy.

It looks like there are five expansion slots available on this case? If so that's a nice choice, should make it easier to do dual GPU with an extra expansion for soundcard or PCIe SSD.

Its got a floating front intake just like the 900D. Think speaker grills and how they're normally attached to speakers. I'm can see 2 120mm fans in the front with 2 120mm fans up to and a 140mm out back . Knowing George, the hard drive cage will defilement be removable/relocated so it will probably support a 240mm 30mm radiator up front just like the 900D. This case will have plenty of airflow.



The obsidian series were all designed to be water cooled cases with a fair capability for air cooling. The latter part they learned and fixed for all the cases after the 800D.

Apart form that one reservation, it's gorgeous.

Newegg has a description up but no picture yet and it states one 120mm rear fan and one 140mm front fan so airflow should be decent. Link

Case is looking pretty sweet though love the clean lines.

Also some measurements and features from the link:

Brushed Aluminum Front Panel

SLI / Cross Fire ready

Modular 2.5" SSD cage

Front 140mm and rear 120mm cooling fans. Room for up to five fans total.

Direct Airflow Path from front cooling fan to GPUs.

Maximum ATX PSU length 180mm

Maximum GPU length 380mm

Maximum CPU Cooler Height 160mm

Room for two 240mm radiators (top, front)

Dual USB 3.0 ports

Corsair has to be some of the dumbest case manufacturers in the world.

HEY GUYS, I GOT A REALLY GREAT IDEA!!!!!!!!!! Lets make the nicest looking case in the world, and totally screw it up with a poorly designed window!!!!!!!!! YAAAAAYYYY!!

Seriously, all they had to freaking do with the case is bring the right side of the window over so that all you see is maybe a little bit of the cable sleveing from the 24 pin connector, and then raised the bottom part of the window and added a false bottom and stock a 120mm fan mount to the false bottom plate.

Seriously, that is all they would have had to do and it would have looked a billion times nicer, but nope....lets screw a nice looking case up once again.

Corsair...... please get it right. I don't want to have to buy case lab cases....they are expensive as crap sad-smiley-002.gif

I think it looks fine, you can always mod one if you don't like it.
