Corsair Obsidian 450D Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Complete System


The total build time was an easy 25 minutes and given that the final products looks super tidy and clean, I’m certainly very happy about that. Everything fit with ease, and despite this being a mid-tower you could easily be fooled to thinking it was a full-tower, there is loads of room to work with on the interior.

The front hard drive bays are easy enough to use and the tool free drawers certainly help speed up the installation process.

The top front fan has a clear shot to our GPU, perfect for giving our system extra cooling performance.

The tidy cable management has kept airflow very clear, so you can expect clean airflow throughout this heavily ventilated chassis.

The H100i was my cooler of choice, personally I didn’t think it would fit with the rear fan installed, but it dropped in place with ease, despite the fact we have a DVD drive in the top 5.25″ drive bay. Of course you’ll not be able to have a push-pull configuration, but there’s plenty more room around the chassis for more radiators should you need them.

Side panels back in place and you can clearly see our system through the side panel window. Good thing the cable management is as neat as it is, because it would really ruin the clean looks of this chassis if it weren’t.

So there we have it, gorgeous look, an easy build and a clean-looking interior and exterior.
