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.

Corsair really surprised us when they entered the case market with the Obsidian Series 800D full tower case. The 800D was just awesome and probably one of the best cases I have reviewed in the past 3 years. They next went to the Graphite Series with the 600T, this case was equally impressive. Today we are taking a look at the first mid tower case in the Obidian Series, the 650D. The case has many of the same features we loved on on the 800D, but also adds some from the Graphite Series line of cases as well. Is this the perfect mid tower for you?

FREMONT, California, February 17, 2010 — Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, today announced the Obsidian Series 700D High-Performance computer chassis, based on the award-winning Obsidian Series 800D chassis.
The new Obsidian Series 700D has been designed by Corsair to offer enthusiasts with a high-performance chassis that retains many of the key features and dimensions of the hugely popular Obsidian 800D. The Obsidian Series 700D replaces the four hot-swap SATA disk drive bays of the 800D with four fixed SATA bays. The total number of drives bays remains the same at six 3.5 inch (2.5 inch compatible) bays, and five 5.25 inch bays. The windowed side-panel of the 800D is also replaced by a solid side panel for the 700D.+Continue Reading
