Corsair Obsidian 250D Mini ITX

If you want to build a Mini ITX system without sacrificing expansion, flexibility, or performance, the Obsidian Series 250D is your answer. Though it’s small on the outside, the 250D has room for standard components like a full-size 5.25” optical drive, a full-length GPU, a 240mm radiator, and even a full-size ATX power supply.

The sleek aluminum front fascia provides the striking yet subtle design that Obsidian Series cases are known for, and a top window gives you a close-up view of your high-performance components. The 250D is a great choice if you want full size performance in a small space.

Tips & Tricks

  • Put some of your cables to go under your motherboard, the space between PSU and mobo is enough for routing some of misc cables
  • For Corsair H100i users. You can route your USB 3.0 front panel cables between heatsink and frame which will make it much better space efficient.
  • If you decide to buy corsair h100i GTX cpu cooler be wary as it wont fit with standard fans, you will need to order slim ones as the clearance is veeery thin with standard fans
  • You can remove one of HDD trays if it's not being used and shove some of PSU cables in there.
