HARRRR matey, these Corsair folks lifted the covers off the Obsidian 450D chassis, and thus it has been released, marketed as a Mid toower PC Case this is a capbale chassis is oozing with enthusiast features... even including room for liquid cooling!
Behind the 450D’s aluminum mesh intake grill are dual 140mm AF140L intake fans to direct airflow straight to a PC’s hottest component, the graphics card. The rear AF120L 120mm fan keeps the airflow moving smoothly and five other optional fan locations give you serious cooling flexibility. The 450D’s fan mounts also accommodate a wide range of water-cooling radiators, with room for up to a 360mm radiator in the roof, a 280mm radiator in the front, and a 240mm radiator in the floor.
The 450D also boasts all of the features that make the Obsidian Series a favorite among enthusiasts around the world. Easily accessible dust filters on the roof, front, and bottom ensure your system will stay looking its best, while modular tool-free 3.5”/2.5” hard disk mounts offer a wide range of storage options, or can be removed entirely to prioritize airflow.
“From day one, our Obsidian Series has made our case lineup a force to be reckoned with.” said George Makris, Product Manager at Corsair. “With Obsidian 450D we’ve now added a mid-tower case that has outstanding air cooling capabilities, but can house lots of water cooling parts, too.”
