And here we have removed the 'one-click' cover that will give you direct access to the two front mounted fans.
Internals then. First impression, plenty of room to work in for a mid sized tower. The second thought would be the all black design, including cables and connectors. The grommet holes have black rubber inlays to hide cabling, as yes, cable management is a primary feature of the chassis. You can make it all really clean and tidy.
You'll get 8 PCI slots to play around with so in theory you can house up-to three dual-slot graphics cards in here, four if you are lucky. You secure the graphics cards or other cards with a thumbscrew. Above the card slots the aforementioned four round holes with rubber inserts. All the way on top we see the 1200mm rear ventilator. It can be PWM controlled and is a low noise model.
Popular these days is to make a big gaping hole in the motherboard tray. This actually is a CPU back plate cutout which allows you to remove and install a new CPU cooler much easier. Typically you'd need to take out the motherboard to install a new cooler, now you can access it from both sides without that unpleasant experience of removing a motherboard from the chassis.
Corsair is making sure you have plenty of room to work with. On the backside panel you can already see it again, insulation material to prevent noise.
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.
