Corsair Obsidian 450D Mid Tower Case? New? Anybody have any info? - Page 6

post #51 of 115
Maybe they should have just put one 120mm/140mm.

That window looks like the exact size of the 350d or it is actually the 350d's from a manufacturing point of view. Wonder how come they didn't do the big one like the 350d and 750d?

All in all it seems to be a good case with a few hiccups.

When will we start seeing them available online for purchasing, George? Also, are the stock fans pretty quiet, even at highest setting?

Thanks!

Are the 750D and the 450D built with the same materials/quality, with the 450D just being smaller? I've never owned one, but I've heard people state the 750D's side panel was fairly flimsy.

The 750D and 450D are being manufactured at the same factory with nearly identical materials.

Obviously not many people think the 750D side panel is flimsy as it's one of our best selling cases. This is the same steel thickness and manufacturing process we use on Air 540, 350D, 650D, 300R, 330R, etc, etc.

I have seen some use the word. I don't know what it is in comparison to. They may have owned Caselabs before, and I would expect the build of a case 1/3 of the price to be build a little more inexpensively.

You took the words out of my mouth lol. If you check the 350d owners thread you will be able to read my frustration with choosing between the 350 or 750 lol. But now that this is out it is for sure between the 450 or the 350. Like you said I just really hope that they offer the front of the 350d for it. I know extreme overclockers will love the improved airflow but I think it looks like ****. Other than that, the 450d has the nice magnetic mesh top that the 750 has that the 350 lacks, and also lets you put in an atx motherboard. I personally have no gripes with the matx for what i want to do atm but people have said that since you get over one graphics card matx boards are very limiting in space. This is the perfect case that I have literally been dreaming for the last month, only thing is they need to offer the standard obsidian front panel for it since it looks so sexy XD

Hm, I have a single 140mm rad I want to use with like a 240mm in a case... Think this would do it?

Also, where does one mount the pump in a case like this or the 650d? I have an MCP350.

I literally have a 650d in my Newegg cart right now, but I'm considering a switch to this. I'm not a big fan of large cases.

I'm currently using a cramped Antec Fusion.

Yes, this case would take a 240/360 rad up top and let you put the 140mm in the front or bottom while still keeping the 3.5" drive cage in the case.

yeah man. 350d doesnt have the top dust filter. although you can buy one thats cut out for it, its not magnetic. I have no problem with matx since I dont do SLI. And sometimes smaller form factor appeals to me. With that being said, 450D is by no mean big and ATX form factors are still the norm. and I have no problem with it either, just wish for the original front panel option.

But since the 350D was on sale and I went ahead with the 350D

I've been waiting for a model like this but wish they maintained the front grill and had a larger window like in the 350d and 750d and perhaps couple more tie downs for cable management..
