    Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components, today announced the Obsidian Series 350D High Performance Micro ATX PC case. Available with a solid or windowed side panel, the Obsidian Series 350D brings unprecedented expansion and cooling options to smaller, more portable, high-performance PCs.

    Like larger cases in the premium Obsidian Series line, the Obsidian Series 350D sports a clean, black, brushed-aluminum styling. The case is also designed for fast and neat builds with tool-free access and drive installation as well as an innovative cable routing system. The Obsidian Series 350D case supports both Micro ATX and mini ITX motherboards and has plenty of interior space for liquid CPU cooling, dual 3.5" hard drives, dual 2.5" SSDs, dual 5.25" drives, and dual full-length graphics cards. It also has five expansion slots and five fan mounting points with room for two 240mm radiators. The front panel provides convenient access to USB 3.0 and audio connectors.

    "The Obsidian 350D's versatile expansion options give builders the ability to pack a lot of performance into a smaller form factor," said Thi La, Senior VP & GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. "Its stylish, compact design makes it a perfect high-performance PC case for smaller living spaces or for gaming LAN parties."

    Pricing, Availability, and Warranty
    The Obsidian Series 350D will be available in May from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. The suggested retail price in the US is $99.99 USD for the solid side panel version and $109.99 for the windowed version. The cases are backed by a 2-year warranty.

    Yeah...

    Nice case, though. I'd prefer those top vents with a "moduvent" style thing.

    Nice. Looks similar to other obsidians and stay's true to it's functional design in a small form factor. Me likey! If this has fan filters on all intakes as usual, it's a winner.

    Finally

    Thank god :respect: ... Corsair finally listened my requests... from the pictures, this Micro ATX case looks awesome...

    I personally loved the front panel and how the connections (audio and USB) are on the top. :D

    I LIKE the window version (with a window that looks more like the 800D and less like the crap that is the 650D and without the damn fan holes like the 300R). :cool:

    I LOVED the fact that there is SPACE behind the motherboard tray... now I can pass a lot of cables without much problem. :rockout:

    To be perfect... i hope that the audio cable from the front panel to the motherboard is long enough so I can hide it... as well as the USB 3.0 cable.

    Only thing I did not liked a lot is the top grill.... I like more the way the 900D has the top grill... but this is not a problem.

    Please Corsair... make a Mini ITX now (or maybe a 652D... with the 350D window and front panel style, 900D top grill). :pimp:

    the only thing wrong with this case is the position of rear fan. Instead of placing it at rear most of the case, they place it same level with the i/o shield (just like my 300R), which is annoying if you want to install a thick push-pull radiator like h80. especially when you have a motherboard with big vrm heatsink

    I like the non-windowed version. The only thing I don't like is it seems doing a push/pull config for the top or the rear is gonna be impossible. The fans are gonna hit the sinks on the board or the RAM unless the pull fans are gonna be on the outside. :)

    EDIT: oops... sanadanosa beat me to it.. :)

    it's likely you're going to have issue with optical drive if you want to do top push-pull with this case (if you still use them :laugh:).

    use the front fan then? it would be better for the CPU too as it would be sucking in fresh air.

    if they made it like the way you said, it would interfere with the top rads. also, there seems to be a gormet there for some reason.

    smartly designed as always!

    Put the optical drive in the lower 5.25" bay. Not as pretty, but it leaves room at the top of the case.

    i think you miss my point or it's me having a problem with my english. check out the position of rear fan, they make it same level with i/o shield (like my 300R) and I believe it will give you slight annoyance with thick push-pull rads. i like to see they place it at rear most of the case, just like other cases.

    i think it still give a problem for puss-pull setup. I believe the picture is just push.
    it's still a great mATX case btw :rockout:.

    Worldwide, you say ? Outside USA their cases, specifically, are virtually unknown, as you cant buy them anywhere.

    Personally, i'd never buy a case with less than 4 3.5 bays. For 10$ extra you can have Fractal Define Mini which is a few steps ahead in its build (and Fractal actually sell their stuff in my country, yay !).

    Nice. Micro ATX, room for rad on top, plenty of room for storage, classy looking.

    I think it may be my next case.

    If you can fit an ATX

    If you cannot fix a full ATX motherboard in it, then you are severely limited.

    Even though these cases are not much smaller then a mid-tower, I like their size. Most systems with a CPU (lets say 3770k) and a GPU (GTX Titan) fit in this case and have plenty of room for a custom loop. That's on the extreme end of things and true that would be sufficient for gaming 90% of the time, but you can always from that high point subtract. Plus like I said before smaller system, just not "ity bity". Diffidently want one as I find myself appreciating smaller and smaller form factors.

    Wonder if you could squeeze a H110 in there.

    Very, very, very few people really need more expansion slot room than is enough for one GPU these days.

    Specs say the top can hold a 280mm rad- if Corsair didn't make it so that the H110 will fit, someone dropped the ball.

    Then you'd buy the Obsidian 650D case instead. The 350D case was specifically designed for micro ATX.
