Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Case Review

Test System / Temperatures


Corsair 650D

Intel Core i7-920
4x 1GB Crucial DDR3-1600
ATI Radeon HD 5850
Intel DX58SO
1x 60GB SSD OS
Antec Formula 7 Paste
Corsair A70 CPU Cooler
Corsair TX750 PSU

Case temperatures were measured using AIDA64, Realtemp GT and GPUz after 10 minutes of the case sitting with no activity and 10 minutes of each load test. Load was applied to the system using Prime95 and Furmark. Ambient room temperature during testing was 25°C.

(NOTE: The object of this test is not to compare the results with alternative products as there are too many factors which can impact thermal performance.)

The Obsidian 650D offers a three step fan control which can be adjusted for performance and noise level. Even with the fans set to the maximum level we found the noise level of the Obsidian 650D to be perfectly acceptable and barely noticeable when we had music or games running and this tended to keep the temperatures 1-2°C lower than the minimum setting.
