Corsair Launches Obsidian Series 350D Case for Micro ATX and Mini ITX Builds

Size matters, which is precisely why Corsair went small with its latest computer case.

It's not the size of your computer case that matters, but how you use it, right? Well, not exactly. If you're building a small form factor system and don't want to waste a ton of space, size is most certainly a factor, followed closely by features. Corsair hopes to impress on both fronts with its new Obsidian Series 350D case. Like its larger Obsidian brothers, the 350D is made from black, brushed aluminum and has an optional side window, but is intended for micro ATX and mini ITX motherboards, the two sizes it supports.

Despite is small size focus, Corsair says there's plenty of interior space for liquid CPU cooling, multiple drives, and dual full-length graphics cards up to 380mm (14.96 inches). More specifically, it supports up to two 2.5-inch drives (via a removable SSD cage), up to two 3.5-inch drives, and up to two 5.25-inch optical drives.

Cooling duties are handled by up to five case fans, including two 120mm or 140mm fans in the front, two more on the top, and a single 120mm fan in the rear. There are also radiator mounts on the top (240mm or 280mm) and bottom (240mm).

"The Obsidian 350D’s versatile expansion options give builders the ability to pack a lot of performance into a smaller form factor," said Thi La , Senior VP & GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. "Its stylish, compact design makes it a perfect high-performance PC case for smaller living spaces or for gaming LAN parties."

You'll find a pair of USB 3.0 ports, headphone output, and microphone input on the top I/O panel.

The Corsair Obsidian 350D is available now for $100 without a side window or $110 with a side window.
