Corsair Obsidian 550D review

On top we see a square panel again, if you look at the photo below you'll notice that once again it can be removed. Obviously you can go nuts with other fans here as well as installing a LCS (liquid cooling system) radiator. A dual 120mm radiator would be a breeze to install for sure.
On the above photo you can see the sound dampening material used little better as well.
The frontpanel is kept simple. Perhaps maybe a little too simple, we'd have loved to see a fan controller here. But a power/reset button, audio jacks and two USB 3.0 ports is what you get. That's a little on the shy side of things alright.
So the Aluminum diamond cut front panel / door can be opened up both from the left and right side, pull it forwards and you'll notice it can be removed completely. This door has a layer of noise dampening material as well. Behind it you'll stumble into four 5.25 drive bays and at the inside six 3.5 hard drive bays (with 2.5 compatibility).
When we move all the away downwards we stumble into another latch that can be removed, it's the dust filter for the two fans sitting behind it, sucking cold air into the chassis. Again, this is one of these details I like so very much.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
