Corsair Obsidian 250D Mini-ITX Computer Case Review
By David Ramsey
Full Disclosure: Corsair provided the product sample used in this article.
Corsair introduced their new Obsidian line of cases with the full-tower 800D; they’ve since expanded into the super-tower market with the 900D, added the 750D to the full-tower lineup, addressed the mid-tower market with the 550D and 650D, and the micro-ATX market with the 350D. Their latest case, the Corsair Obsidian 250D, brings the design and versatility of the Obsidian line to the mini-ITX field.
The 250D shares the basic design of the Obsidian line, with a brushed aluminum faceplate, plastic front bezel, and black steel case body. It’s much larger than most mini-ITX cases, and there’s a reason for that: it’s designed to support a 240mm liquid cooling system.
