Corsair Obsidian 750D Airflow Edition Review


Introducing the Corsair Obsidian 750D

An introduction for such an interesting product is quite difficult. I shall start off with the obvious, the Corsair Obsidian 750D Full Tower Case is quite a large, to the point it was much larger than I thought it would be (Best get a measuring tape to check the dimensions! I will help you out and post them below.)

  • Average Price: £135.99 (Available at Amazon.co.uk)
  • Item Weight: 7.9 kg
  • Product Dimensions: 55.9 cm x 54.6 cm x 23.6 cm
  • Colour: Black
  • Variants: Non Airflow (flat panelled front) and Airflow edition (meshed front)

Why I chose this? I’ll be honest, I had a quick look and knew the Corsair 900D was too large, to match this I thought the best way to compromise between the two!

I love the styling of this and the high airflow, as this is the airflow version it enhances the amount of airflow to the motherboard and drives with the two large fans situated in the front with a magnetic panel featuring a dust-filter. It’s easy to take off and remove any fans if that is what you wanted to do.

I found that there’s a lot of room in the back of the case for cable routing and you’re free to move the HDD cages around the case to make it as custom as you like, this is a great feature and you can even remove the cage completely if you want to add it at a later date. Behind the cages vertically at the front of the case there is 4 x 2.5″ SSD slots where you’re able to install and remove if you choose.

There’s plenty of room for radiators and water cooling in the Corsair Obsidian 750D, with good airflow for the fans attached to the radiator to cool any excess heat. There’s also good airflow within the case itself for this heat to dissipate.

I’ve included some pictures of the case itself and the packaging it came in so you know what to expect if you order the Corsair Obsidian 750D!

Positives of this case:

  • Lots of room (It is a full tower case but the space  and cabling room is astronomical! Up-to 1inch behind the Motherboard.)
  • Movable HDD Cage(s) – By default these are attached to the bottom but can be unscrewed and easily moved
  • Up to 1 x 360mm Radiator or 2 x 240mm Radiator
  • Good & high airflow
  • Good cable management rubberised slots
  • Lots of cable tie slots
  • 2 Front fans
  • Magnetic fan filters (a brilliant idea might I add!)
  • Large side window
  • 4 x Dedicated SSD 2.5″ slots

Downsides of this case:

  • No separate area for HDD’s like there is on the 900D
  • Found it difficult to re-seat the 2.5″ slots if they were removed
  • Found it difficult to connect up the HDD cables due to SSD slots behind
  • The side panels are a bit difficult to get back on, so long as they’re held in place when screwing the thumb-screws they stay in place

Kind regards,

Matthew
