Based on the success of the full tower Obsidian Series 800D, PC hardware maker Corsair announced their new 650D mid-tower at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011. The new Obsidian 650D mid tower boasts various innovative features and sturdy build quality for the water-cooling enthusiasts and case modders.
Corsair has released a new addition to its award winning Obsidian series. The Corsair Obsidian 650D Mid Tower offers many features carried from its predecessors such as good build quality, and enough room to hold even the latest PC hardware in the market now.
As quoted by Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager for Components at Corsair, “As soon as the original Obsidian Series 800D full-tower case was launched, we began to receive an unbelievable number of requests for a smaller, mid-tower version. The rich feature set of the 650D is the result of the direct communication we have with our customers.”
The new Corsair Obsidian 650D follows closely in the footsteps of the other award winning Obsidian cases, including excellent cable routing opportunities, a sleek, elegant design, as well as enough room for a watercooling set-up and the latest and greatest PC hardware — all in a mid tower.
In addition, the Corsair Obsidian 650D features a windowed side panel, a 200mm front-mounted intake, top-mounted exhaust fans with an external speed controller, 8 PCI expansions slots, ample room for a 2x120mm radiators, and an external SATA 6Gbps (SATA Revision 3.0) hot-swap dock. The exterior and interior is all done in a sleek black finish.
The Corsair Obsidian 650D is slated to be available in the market in April this year and has a suggested retail price of US$199.99.
