    This review is from: Corsair Obsidian 650D Aluminum Mid Tower ATX Enthusiast Computer Case – Black CC650DW-1 (Personal Computers)

    In the past I’ve always chosen either a CM, thermaltake, or antec case and have had very mixed results among the three; some good and some, well, not so. When I first saw the 800D I was very impressed, but the size and price were both on the large end of the range. Intelligently, Corsair produced the 650D for those of us that don’t have room for a massive case and don’t want to afford a high price but still want all of the features a top of the line case (like the 800D) has to offer.

    First off, this case is simple and understated. No flashy lights or strange graphics are found anywhere on or in this case which is refreshing since most of the garbage on the market is lite up like a state penitentiary. The sides top bottom and back are made from fairly study steel, while the front is brushed aluminum which is mounted on plastic. (the plastic is not viewable from the outside and is quite thick and study). The window on the side is nice and study and doesn’t look horrendously out of place. Everything on this case is black with the exception of a few grommets on the interior that were used during the assembly process. Some people complain about the quick release handles. I personally love them for their functionality and because of that I don’t mind them for their looks.

    The case comes with mobo posts for an ATX board pre-installed which was nice to see. However, I did find the motherboard tray to flex more than I had anticipated, especially during memory and graphics card installation. Wire management is amazingly easy with this case, easily the best I’ve ever used. This turned the usually tedious job of routing wires and hiding them a snap, “that was easy”.

    I know many reviewers will complain about the hard drive trays being flimsy plastic. Yes, they are but it really isn’t that big of a deal. They are not that bad and if it really bothers you just think that Corsair wanted you to be able to install a HD more easily so they made the tray a little more flexible. The trays are secure and don’t feel at all like they will break so really, it not a big deal.

    I like having access to a built in fan controller. At its highest setting this case can get quite loud with its 2×200 mm and 1×120 mm fan plus the CPU cooler running off the mobo. At the lowest setting the fans are still noticeable in a quiet room. However, all but the most sensitive of people shouldn’t be bothered by the noise. When you read another review about this case and they say it “almost silent” or has “a quiet whisper” they are either hearing impaired or need to clean out their ears because it is most definitely not. None the less the case seems to do a good job of cooling, even on the lowest setting.

    Finally, this case does not have an internal USB 3 header for the front USB 3 ports which is disappointing but instead of routing the USB 3 cables out the back of the case to the USB 3 ports on the back I suggest picking up an inexpensive USB3 header and keeping it all internal, for vanity if nothing else.

    Make no mistake, the 800D is HUGE and even though the 650D is its little brother it is still a very large case; mid tower… I don’t think so. It is certainly roomy enough for most any CPU cooler you can buy but if your putting in a sandy bridge or some other post 2011 processor you really don’t need a large CPU cooler, seriously!

    –EDIT–
    After about a week of use the top 200mm fan began to whine. After contacting tech support and explaining the problem Corsair’s response; “Please give us your shipping address.” GREAT customer service, Thanks Corsair.

    Classic, classy simplicity- but HD trays should be sturdier…, June 30, 2011

    This review is from: Corsair Obsidian 650D Aluminum Mid Tower ATX Enthusiast Computer Case – Black CC650DW-1 (Personal Computers)

    I had my build in the beautiful Sentey Arvina 6400 Black case, which I love. But, after I found myself sitting the case left side facing out on top of my computer table with the side panel off to view the inside components, lighting, etc, I decided that I wanted a case with a “windowed” side panel. I initially considered modding the Arvina’s side panel, cutting a window in it, but decided that it’s way too nice and has the design buildout for ventilation that I did not want to risk messing that up; which, knowing me, would be way too high a risk to take. I will move my eleven year old son’s build into the Arvina, and keep his current AZZA Hurrcan 2000 case aside for the future.

    For my build I researched the “windowed” computer case market inside and out. I always came back to the Corsair cases because of the overall design, simple, classic “classy” exterior design, quality and cable management. Initially I struggled between the Graphite series “black” and new White versions…but, again, as beautiful as those cases are (the white version with a mesh side or window option), I opted for the white, but then became concerned with the white not really fitting in very well with the interior colors/set up of my home office. However, I have a feeling that one day I will have that Corsair white case sitting there…?

    Finally, Corsair took the enviable but huge Obsidian 800 D to mid size… alas, the 650 D appeared on the market and I was awed with the elegant black mid-tower case with a nice, well though out window size and placement that does not show the hard drive cages! I thought that for what you get, the Corsair quality, the price was reasonable as well, with other higher end windowed cases by Silverstone, Sentey, Lian Li, and others ranging at least $50.00 plus higher. The main thing that impresses me about Corsair is that they really do put a great deal of “end-user’ consideration and thoughtfulness into their design planning process.

    I planned on making good use of that “window view” by doing some interior lighting mods to make the interior lighting interesting and pleasant to view. It turned out looking great.

    The large 200mm fans on the front and top of the case are a great idea, they do indeed push a lot of air and are silent. I am glad Corsair decided to make the top fan mounts size adjustable; but the front fan mounting holes are not.

    Cable management gives you just about every routing option imagineable, is top notch, as is the overall quality of the case itself.

    Another nice feature is the option of being able to remove the top hard drive cage completely or, reposition it on the bottom next to the main cage. indeed, I’m currently using an older 1100 watt non-modular PSU and needed a bit more room for some cables/wires that were bunching up on the back near the bottom HD cage location, and I was able to use the space under the main cage to hide the wires.

    However, one negative issue I have with this case is with the hard drive trays which are surprisingly way too thin and flimsy. They literally seem to “warp” even with a 2.5 inch SSD mounted. Also, when I was plugging the SATA and power cables into the HD’s, on two occasions the HD tray bent and fell out of the cage, thus the reason for my four star rating. I was a bit dissappointed that Corsair seemed to “cut corners” with this key feature. They need to make these HD trays out of thicker plastic or better yet, metal. (Case in point; take a look at the $99.00 Sentey Arvina HD trays, made out of metal with a nice locking mechanism and attractive front release panel.) The grommets and metal posts on the sides of the Corsair HD trays are also difficult to line up with the HD holes without “popping out”. With a little patience, however, it’s not a big problem overall installing the HD’s.

    I am very pleased with this case overall and already have had comments about how classy it looks. I would highly recommend the Corsair 650D to anyone interested in investing a few extra dollars in a very steamlined, classic, well built and well designed case.

    Corsair, please consider making your HD trays sturdier in this case… otherwise, kudos again to Corsair on another winner!

    – Though it may run hotter than some other cases in the same price range, the 650D still does a very decent job at cooling while remaining almost silent.

    – A front push-down panel that includes 2 high speed USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and audio jacks.
    – A clear siding allows you to view your system components without having to open the case.

    Overall: [5/5]
