Both the left and top panels of the Corsair Obsidian 550D have a lid that covers the mesh available for optional fans. These lids are easily removed by simply pushing them. This lid has a noise dampening foam, and the mesh features a magnetic air filter. The left panel supports the installation of two 120 mm or 140 mm fans or one 200 mm fan. The case comes with rubber rings for the installation of these fans, in order to absorb vibration and, thus, reduce the noise level produced by them.
