Corsair's been making computer cases for a long time, but up until now, the company didn't have a mini-ITX chassis on its resume. That changes with the introduction of the Obsidian Series 250D, a tiny enclosure designed specifically for users looking to build a small form factor (SFF) system. On the flip side, Corsair also unveiled a couple of full tower cases, the Graphite Series 730T and 760T.
Starting on the small side of the things, the Obsidian Series 250D is Corsair's smallest case to date. It measures 11.4 inches (H) by 10.9 inches (W) by 13.81 inches (D) and weighs 9.7 pounds before crammed full of hardware. Inside you'll find two expansion slots, two tool-less 2.5-inch/3.5-inch combo bays, two 2.5-inch bays, two high-airflow fans (there's room for up to five), and enough elbow room for a front (120mm or 140mm) or side (120mm/240mm) radiator. On the front of the case are two USB 3.0 ports.
"Thanks to the increasingly high performance of Mini-ITX boards, it is now possible to build an extremely powerful yet compact system," said Xavier Lauwaert, Director of Product Marketing at Corsair. "The Obsidian 250D is made for users who want a smaller PC but don’t want to limit their hardware choices. With support for large liquid coolers, full-length graphics cards and full-size modular power supplies, 250D is Mini-ITX without compromise."
The 250D will be available this month for $90 MSRP. If you'd rather go bigger -- much bigger -- the 730T and 760T offer lots of room to work in. Both share most of the same specs, except the 730T doesn't have a side window or integrated fan controller, while the 760T features both amenities.
Other features include nine expansion slots, two modular drive drives with support for six 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives (so 12 altogether), four tool-free 2.5-inch side mounted drive cages, three tool-free 5.25-inch drive bays, three included AF140L high-airflow 140mm fans (there's room for 8), and radiator support in the top (360mm or 280mm), front (280mm or 240mm), bottom (120mm), and rear (140mm or 120mm).
The 760T will be available in February for $180 (black) or $190 (Arctic White), while the 730T will sell for $140 (black only) MSRP, also in February.
