Corsair®, a world leader in high-performance components to the PC hardware market, today announced the immediate availability of the Obsidian SeriesTM 250D performance Mini-ITX PC case. Bringing the sophisticated and minimalist design of the Obsidian series to a new smaller size, the 250D is Corsair’s first chassis built exclusively for the increasingly popular Mini-ITX form factor. Brushed aluminum and solid steel construction combine with a compact frame that refuses to settle between size, looks or flexibility.
Corsair’s smallest case to date, the Obsidian 250D means your PC no longer needs to dominate your desk, instead easily fitting on a book case, sitting beside your HDTV or carried away to a LAN party or dorm. Despite its diminutive size 250D supports not only many of the more popular performance Mini ITX motherboards, but also a wide range of full-size high-performance components, including many of Corsair’s Hydro Series liquid CPU coolers, allowing users to push their PC to the limit. The 250D also continues the elegant aesthetic legacy of the Obsidian series, combining a brushed aluminum fascia and sleek panels with a roof-mounted window to reveal the hardware inside.
“Thanks to the increasingly high performance of Mini-ITX boards, it is now possible to build an extremely powerful yet compact system,” said Xavier Lauwaert, Director of Product Marketing at Corsair. “The Obsidian 250D is made for users who want a smaller PC but don’t want to limit their hardware choices. With support for large liquid coolers, full-length graphics cards and full-size modular power supplies, 250D is Mini-ITX without compromise.”
