Corsair Obsidian Series 700D Full Tower PC Case Review

Corsair is getting ready to announce its second PC case, the Obsidian 700D. The new 700D is positioned slightly lower than the 800D which the company debuted last year. We found the 800D to be one of best cases we have ever looked at, so we have really high hopes for the lower cost 700D. Read on to see what we think of the Corsair Obsidian 700D PC gaming chassis!

The Corsair Obsidian 700D was released with the goal in mind of having a case with the same level of performance but at a lower price point. The easiest way to do this was to remove some of the bells and whistles of the 800D: the hot swap bays and the side panel. Those two features are what some enthusiasts don’t want or need and their removal dropped the price $24 from $273.99 for the 800D to $249.99 for the 700D. This price drop will most likely be what pushes those on the fence about the 800D one way or the other. Like I said earlier, working with the 700D was actually enjoyable.

Awesome case. And this one is a bit more affordable than the 800D. For those of use who don't have a need/use for the hot swap bays and think windows are for teenagers then this case is the one to get. My only wish is that more case manufacturers start using 140MM fans. They are almost as cheap as the 120MM variant, push more air and usually at a lower dB.
