Corsair Announces Obsidian 450D Enclosure
Corsair has announced yet another Obsidian enclosure.
Corsair has announced yet another new enclosure in the Obsidian line of products. The Obsidian Series 450D mid-tower PC case is built to bring room for a lot of high-end hardware, including water cooling gear and a reasonably priced chassis, while maintaining the looks of the other chassis in the Obsidian series of enclosures.
Regarding hardware, the case offers room for up to E-ATX size motherboards, as well as graphics cards up to 430 mm long and CPU coolers up to 165 mm tall. Included is a modular hard drive cage, which can be removed, or more can be ordered for added storage. Inside this modular cage there is room for either three 3.5" or 2.5" drives. Up front there is also room for two 5.25" optical drives, and behind the motherboard tray there is room for up to two 2.5" SSDs. The case measures 494 x 210 x 497 mm, and weighs about 7 kg when empty.
"From day one, our Obsidian Series has made our case lineup a force to be reckoned with," said George Makris, Product Manager at Corsair. "With Obsidian 450D we've now added a mid-tower case that has outstanding air cooling capabilities, but can house lots of water cooling parts, too."
In th-ur radiators. Up front, users will be able to mount either a 240 or 280 mm radiator; up top there is room for either a 280 or 360 mm radiator, with room for a single 240 mm rad in the bottom of the case, and of course the usual support for a rear-mounted 120 mm radiator. Fan locations align with the room for radiators, with no room for fans where radiators aren't supported. Dust filters are also present on all the intakes of the case.
Front I/O connectivity is handled by a pair of USB 3.0 ports as well as the standard set of HD audio jacks.
The case should be available on shelves immediately with an MSRP price of $119.99.
