ATX full-tower aimed at enthusiasts
Posted by Slobodan Simic
Corsair has now officially announced the new Obsidian 750D enthusiast case that will be lined up between the high-end Obsidian 800D as well as the more of a mid-range Obsidian 650D. The new Obsidian 750D still retains the full-tower design and offers enough room for bunch of storage devices, long graphics cards as well as enough room for even high-end water cooling setups.
Weighing in at 9.5kg and with 235x560x546mm dimensions, the new Corsair Obsidian 750D is everything but a member of the lightweight division and with support for XL-ATX, EATX, HPTX and ATX motherboards as well as the use of steel, brushed aluminum front-panel and ABS for drive cages, it certainly cannot be put in the average PC case category.
The specifications and features list that should appeal to most enthusiasts are quite impressive as the rest of the case as it packs a large cut-out behind the CPU Socket area, valved cutouts all across the motherboard tray that should ease the cable/tubing routing, three fixed 5.25-inch and two detachable 3.5/2.5-inch drive bay cages, that will allow to get more room for longer PSUs, cable routing and other neat things as well as a couple of 2.5-inch bays along the back of the motherboard tray.
When it comes to cooling, Obsidian 750D really shines as it offers room for two 120mm intake fans at the front and enough room for 240x120mm radiator, single 140mm exhaust fan, two 140mm/three 120mm top exhaust fans or enough room for serious water cooling radiator. With some rearrangement of drive bays, you can practically put any water cooling setup inside the Obsidian 750D.
While it did not reveal the precise launch date, we expect the new Corsair Obsidian 750D to show up in retail/e-tail pretty soon with a US $249.99 price tag.
