Corsair Obsidian Series 250D - A No Compromise Mini-ITX Casing


First seen at CES 2014, the Corsair Obsidian Series 250D is positioned as a no compromise Mini-ITX casing for enthusiasts and gamers. We try it out for ourselves to see if you can build a serious gaming rig with it.

Good build quality ; Straightforward installation ; Able to fit larger PSUs ; Dedicated drive trays for 2.5-inch drives ; Good cooling options

Lots of thumbscrews to remove ; Shoddy dust filter design

Corsair’s past offerings have been very solid and the new Obsidian Series 250D - their very first Mini-ITX casing - follows in this tradition.

Corsair Obsidian 250D Review


Adding another computer chassis to the Obsidian Series, Corsair provide support for dedicated Mini-ITX with the 250D computer case.

Professional aesthetics ; Good build quality ; Good cooling performance ; Can house high-end graphics cards ; Plenty of fan options ; Allocation for 240mm radiator ; 2.5” and 3.5” drive support

Cable management is tricky ; Some space not utilised

The Obsidian family has gathered lots of appeal over the years and rightly so, the models within this range are professional, elegant and aesthetically pleasing. The only piece missing from the puzzle is the inclusion of a Mini-ITX option, which is...
