    Looks great but I do wonder why they didn't use the same style of filter as the roof panel on the front. Would have kept it more consistent looking.

    Looks great. Definitely addresses most of my concerns with my 750D. I presume you can buy extra HDD cages if you needed them?

    Re: Reviews - Corsair Obsidian Series 450D

    For £92 http://www.scan.co.uk/products/corsa...mid-tower-case I'm sorry but that's a bit pricey for what it is. if this was in the £70-80 range it would be a bit better.
    I don't think the front vents spoil it that much, although I agree with JCBeastie, using the same mesh as the top on the front would of been good.

    Other than the price I can see only one minor issue, that being the rear fan mount is flush with the io shield, which is a minor cost cutting you normally see on cheaper cases, it's a minor issue because that small space can cause issues between the motherboard and rear 120rad&fan setups.

    It is too pricey - the 650D is only £30 more and offers alot more.

    This should be £80 market

    Re: Reviews - Corsair Obsidian Series 450D

    Not bad at all, i think aswell it's about £10 or so bit much. I'm sure it will probably come down in the next few months, not a huge fan of the front, but a nice case in and out.

    It look nice. At that price glad I went the 750d and got lots of extra space.

    Good looking case with a Fair design giving us a range of build setups and options but the Price is a Little to high for me. i would get the windowed 350D over this case and go with the smaller form factor Motherboard.

    This is a nice looking case, how does the radiator support compare to that of say a NZXT h440 though? Looking for a case for a new build with support for 2 240 rads (mild modding acceptable)
