It's time to hit up another chassis review. Many of you guys were shocked and awed when Corsair released their first ever Obsidian 800D chassis. Many purchased it and then there is a residual group of you that would like to purchase it, yet face the fact that the full-tower is too big for placement.
Well, look no further, thy prayers have been answered halleluiah! Yes, they stripped away the removable front drive bays, made the chassis smaller and boom, the Obsidian 650D was born. A chassis that is just as impressive as its bigger brother the 800D really. Plenty of space, all graphics cards to date fit in there (length wise), many drive bays, fan controller, USB 3.0 frontpanel support, easy to clean dust filters and a solution that is once again pretty much tool free and comes in that scrumptious all black design.
Its the mini-me of the Obsidian 800D, yet packs all the important features and design specialties that Corsair likes to inject into their designs so much.

The Corsair Obsidian Series 650D is slowly becoming available in stores as we speak at a not so cheap retail price of $199.99, it will come with a 2-year warranty though.
Just looking at these specs makes you think, 'is that really a mid sized tower chassis?' Yes Sir, it definitely is. Anyway, have a peek at the product after which we'll dive straight into the photo-shoot.
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.
