Corsair Obsidian 500D PC Case Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The new Obsidian is a pretty awesome chassis. The side-panel door concept that can open up at the front side and fitted with tempered glass really is the icing on top of the cake. Design and looks, however, are personal. I totally dig the dark looks, but then again some might disagree with me.

CORSAIR Obsidian 500D

★★★★★ 4.6
Verdict: The CORSAIR Obsidian 500D offers sleek looks with a thick slab of aluminum up top and heavy swing-open glass side panels. But it does not stop there. You will also get USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity, two retail-grade 120 mm fans, and a few little surprises inside the chassis to make your life a lot...

Corsair Obsidian Series 500D Review

★★★★★
Verdict: The 500D is a welcome return for Corsair to more premium cases, and it feels like a worthy addition to the much-loved Obsidian Series. The combination of brushed aluminium and tempered glass is hardly revolutionary, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work very well, and we like what Corsair has done...

Corsair Obsidian 500D

★★★★★ 4.7
Verdict: The Corsair Obsidian 500D is a sleek and stellar looking chassis which is more than capable of housing your components. We do feel the cooling needs help, and current pricing is a touch high, yet at the same time, we cannot stop ourselves from recommending it!

Corsair Obsidian 500D

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: It was a bit difficult to remove from initial packaging. Package arrived earlier than expected and allowed me to rebuild my computer with the necessary upgrades the same day my other parts arrived. Great product, well worth the money, airflow increased and dropped my computer temps by almost 25%.
