A few years ago when I sat at Corsair’s press conference where they announced they were going to be making more than just memory I was a little skeptical. Many companies did the same thing, just rebranding OEM products. Corsair was different, all of their products were original and they said they wanted to be in the top 3 of each product category. They definitely surprised many people and have some of the best cases, cooling solutions and gaming gear. Today I am taking a look at the 550D Mid Tower Case that is part of Corsair’s Obsidian Series. The 550D is made for noise reduction and sound isolation. It features front and side panels that are fully lined with sound-damping material, top and side panels that have their own sound-insulated vent covers, three included 120mm cooling fans, USB 3.0 support and much more. Read on as we check out the Obsidian Series 550D case from Corsair!
The 550D comes in Corsair’s plain retail box. There is an outline of case of the front of the box and on the back there is an overview.
Opening the box up the case is nicely protected by two large pieces of styrofoam and a plastic bag. Upon first inspection of the case there was no visible damage. Included with the case you have a getting started guide, all of your mounting hardware, zip ties and a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 header adapter.
