Although Corsair just announced a plan to
sell off the company sell off a minority stake in the company for a cool $75 million, it still continues to move forward with their PC case line-up in a somewhat alternating pattern. The last few releases were for the Carbide Series and now it is time for the Obsidian Series to show off something new. This time though it isn't just a new case at a different price point with slight differences in features. Corsair downsizes to a smaller form factor with a Micro ATX case in the new Obsidian 350D.
The Corsair 350D has the same black brushed-aluminum style as other Obsidian cases in the series. Going with a simple external design for sleek style, the 350D keeps its unique features for the interior. There you will find a pair of 5.25 ODD bays, 2.5" SSD bays, and 3.5" HDD bays. Its unique interior configuration allows for dual full-sized graphics cards. There is even a total of five fan slots with room at the top and front for up to a 240 mm radiator for the best possible cooling options. water or air.
The Corsair Obsidian 350D focuses on providing easy to use expansion and cooling with a small enough design for portability. Like, for instance, as the basis of a new LAN party system. Add to that a two year warranty and a $99.99 MSRP ($109.99 for windowed version) price point, this makes the 350D an attractive offering especially if you move your case a lot.
