Features:

A revolutionary combination of noise reduction and cooling.

Obsidian Series 550D is carefully engineered for noise reduction and sound isolation. But, it's not just about keeping things quiet - there's amazing cooling potential, lots of expansion flexibility, and the durability that Obsidian Series is renowned for.

Superior airflow for high-performance PCs.

Obsidian Series 550D comes with two front-mounted 120mm intake fans and one 120mm exhaust fan - more than enough for delivering the airflow required for a high-performance system. But if you're pushing past high performance and into the realm of extreme-performance overclocking, there's room for a lot more.

The top panel provides room for two 120mm or 140mm fans, or a 240mm radiator for compatibility with Corsair Hydro Series CPU coolers and other liquid cooling systems.

The side panel has mounting points for another two 120mm or 140mm fans for cooling multiple GPUs.

In total, the 550D offers ten 120mm fan mounting points, six of which can also accommodate 140mm fans.

The silent treatment.

With many high-end PC cases, cooling is often provided without consideration for noise. Not so with the 550D: the front and side panels are fully lined with sound-damping material, and the top and side panels have their own sound-insulated vent covers to reduce noise leakage from unused fan mounting locations.

The front air intakes are angled away from the front of the case for noise reduction, and the fans and drive bays use silicone mounts to reduce vibration noise. The result is a platform for building high-performance PCs you can live with.

Smart features for serious system builders.

The extra touches like magnetically mounted dust filters and one-button side panel removal make building fun, and using a 550D-based system a rewarding experience.

Expansion is easy, with eight expansion slots, six tool-free hard drive bays with removable caddies and integrated 2.5" SSD support, and four tool-free optical drive bays.

The top drive cage can be removed to accommodate GPUs of up to 452mm in length.

The diamond-cut brushed aluminum front panel houses two high-speed USB 3.0 connectors and audio ports.

Pros
-very high quality feel.
-as far as black boxes go, it's beautiful.
-front door is dual hinged (and the hinges are metal).
-screwless drive bays.
-lots of rubber coated cable routing holes.
-ventilation slats on expansion card fillers are small enough to keep dimes out (in case your child thinks your computer is a slot machine)
Cons
-front panel behind the door is just plastic and feels entirely out of place with the quality feel of this case. but at least it's hidden most of the time.
-side panels are removed with push buttons. I would rather have thumbscrews, which are a lot more secure but still convenient.
Summary
This case looks great. Very low on cheesy bling, high on bold simplicity. Most of the case is matte black. The front door is made of brushed metal with a cut out for the IO panel. I've always liked the clean look of doors but I've avoided them since I had one many years ago that broke off it's plastic hinges. This thing has metal hinges so I'm hoping not to be disappointed again.
The production quality itself it superb. Everything inside and out is perfectly aligned and fits properly. All the edges are curved are safe. There's rubber coating on drive bays and foam around the PS hole.
The routing holes and rear side panel make cable management simple and make the case look great (and keep airflow unobstructed) after it's outfitted. Hard drives are aligned sideways so their cables can be hidden away behind the back panel as well.
This thing was a very pleasant surprise. I've generally bought decent cases in the past (~80-100) but this case is by far better than anything I've had before. Corsair put a lot of effort into this thing and it shows.

Pros
- Slick and yet simple design.
- Foam padding to reduce interior noise.
- Options for top/side-mounted cooling solutions.
- All black (interior).
- Made by Corsair.
Cons
- Tighter cable management compared to what I'm used to.
- No fan controller.
Summary
I bought this case to build myself a second gaming tower. I went from a Corsair 650D to this, so in a way I "downsized" but overall I'm very satisfied with this case.

One thing that surprised me right away: The interior USB 3.0 cables (for the front ports) are actually joined together into a proper motherboard header! Yay! This was a nice little discovery because then I knew right away I wouldn't need an adapter.

All of my parts fit perfectly fine. There's plenty of room inside and cable managing wise it's great, though it gets a little tighter in the back compared to the 650D - I guess that's because of how the 550D has the motherboard 'wall' pushed back a little bit, leaving less room on the other side for cables. However, it's nice that Corsair included 3M adhesive mounted cable clips. Those help a lot.

The one thing I would've liked is a fan controller. I know I could just buy a separate unit to connect my fans to but for now I'm alright with plugging them all into the motherboard. It just would've been nicer with a built-in one.

I don't really have anything to compare it to but I can say this case met all my expectations for noise levels, design and build quality.

Pros
Clean Design, attractive interior, enough room for a decent sized system.
Cons
Hard to get it quiet and cool.
Summary
Upgraded from a coolermaster HAF922. While it was nice to have all the sound foam, and closed walls, it was very difficult to get the rig cool while maintaining low volume. I could get it pretty quiet, but it would become a toaster inside. Ended up returning it after a week.

Pros
Boitier professionnel
Bonne Isolation
10 ventilateurs !!!
Cons
Ventilateur d'origine pas aussi silencieux que les noctua
Summary
J'ai installé un controleur pour 5 ventilateurs, avec le nh-c14 qui est très silencieux du côté processeur. Je peux enfin enregistrer en studio sans avoir de bruits qui provient du boitier.

Le meilleur dans sa catégorie, aucun outils nécessaire

Je le recommande fortement

Pros
Great Cable Management, Very quiet, 2-way Front Door
Cons
Arrived Damage
Summary
Bought this for my new build, which also included a Corsair H100. With other motherboards, the H100 should fit with the rad and fans on the inside, however the motherboard I have has something obstructing a second fan.

The case arrived damaged, the side panel cover will not stay on due to the connections being broken. I have filed a ticket with Corsair, but still have received no response for it, which I'm very disappointed by.

Other than the that, this case is great. The cable management is amazing, paired with a modular power supply, there may be 1 cable running across the motherboard, everything is hidden behind the case.

The 2-way front panel is a nice addition. It opens either to the right, or to the left. I've seen others complain that it was hard to open and close, while I do understand their concerns, I don't find it as big of a deal. I like that its a little tough.

Having my i5 overclocked at 4.7Ghz, and video card overclocked, the system is still very very quiet, with nice/quiet cooling. I expected when I built this machine to not be able to leave it running while sleeping in the same room, but thus far, it has not been an issue.

I would definitely recommend this case to anyone, I am truely happy with my purpose. Now if only Corsair will get back to me to replace the side panel...

Pros
Solid, versatile, extremely quiet (with fans at lower speed), great airflow options, accommodates large heatsinks, excellent cable management.
Cons
Paint (particularly on the top) is textured and scuffs easily.
Summary
It was really a joy to do a system build with this case. I've never had a system look so neat and tidy.

I was a bit concerned about the usefulness of the front intake fans given they're blocked by a foam insulated door. Since I knew the door was removable (and can be opened from both directions, which is nice) I decided to take the chance on this purchase. I was surprised that even with the door in place, there's enough ventilation from the side edges behind the door to make those fans effective.

The fans at their stock speed are a bit loud for my liking. I dialed them down (many motherboards provide this functionality) so that the front intake fans ran at 900 RPM and the rear exhaust fan ran at 1100 RPM. My CPU fan (Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo) spins at 1300 RPM. Idle, the CPU temperature is a modest 32C and GPU (MSI Twinfrozr GTX 680 4GB) is 33C.

The system is basically inaudible at my seating position about 2 feet away. Up close, the fans have a very neutral sounds -- no tonal quality or buzzing, just the sound of air flowing.

I would definitely (and already have) recommend this case to people interested in finding a good balance between silence and airflow. My previous case (Antec Solo) was a marvel of silent PC construction but did so at the expensive of temperature. In my opinion, the 550D excels in both areas.

Pros
Quiet
Good Build Quality
Ok air flow
Cons
The motherboard recess in the back makes cabling harder. in the 500R, it isnt a problem as the side panel bulges out.
Summary
Decent build quality. i would recommend to anyone that needs a silence optimized case. the only complaint is the area behind the motherboard is recessed so you cant really put too many cables behind it.
