TechSpot: Corsair Obsidian Series 450D & Carbide Series Air 540 Case Review

We've explored many unique PC cases over the years, most recently having reviewed the Silverstone Raven RVZ01, In Win tou, and Xigmatek Nebula so far in 2014, yet one model has continued to elude us. First unveiled at Computex 2013, Corsair's Carbide Air 540 employs an interesting dual-chamber design.

The Carbide Air 540 was first released in black but white and silver versions have been available for a few months now and we are finally going to check both of them out. Along for the ride is Corsair's Obsidian 450D, another mid-tower case that the company announced on March 25 of this year.

Unlike the Carbide Air 540, the Obsidian 450D features a more traditional tower case design. In fact, it looks a lot like a smaller version of the 650D, which is in turn a smaller version of the legendary 800D. Despite having different designs, the Carbide Air 540 and Obsidian 450D are closely priced at $110 and $120.

I just completed a new build and ended up using a 330R, which is great, but my first choice was the 500 series, read a few reports of fires and steered clear...

The 450D is indeed a nice case, ta for the review. As is the 550D and 600T (this one I currently use)

Corsair make good stuff!
