The Obsidian Series™ 550D has been carefully engineered for noise reduction. The front and side panels are insulated with sound dampening material, and the hard drive trays and fans have soft silicon mounts to absorb vibration. The top and side panel vents are covered for noise reduction if you’re not using them to install your own fans, and even the intakes are angled to reduce air noise.
The rigid, stamped steel and brushed aluminum case holds some remarkable technology that makes it easy to build great systems. There’s built-in USB 3.0 support, and the drive trays work with 2.5” SSDs. The removable hard drive bays allow customization for extra-long graphics cards and maximizing airflow. And, the easy-access side panels come off at the touch of a button for easy upgrades or simply admiring your work.

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.
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.
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.
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.
