Today, Corsair launched two new members to its Hydro Series of all-in-one liquid coolers: the H100i RGB Platinum and the H115i RGB Platinum. The two largely feature the same design and features, but are distinguished by fan and radiator sizes. The H100i RGB Platinum has a 240mm radiator that is backed by two 120mm fans. The H115i RGB Platinum ups the ante with a larger 280mm radiators and twin 140mm fans. Other differences can be found in fan speeds: the former can vary its speeds from between 400 to 2,400 RPM, with the latter ranging from 400 to 2,000 RPM. Where the two share common ground is with customizable RGB lighting that adorns both fans (four LEDs on each fan) and the pump head (16 LEDs).... Read more...

Corsair's line-ups of K70 and Strafe mechanical gaming keyboards have been on the market now for quite some time. The Strafe is a more streamlined speedster for performance freaks and the K70 a more full-featured deck with ultra-premium build quality. We recently looked at Corsair's K70 Lux RGB in a 5-way round-up and the board walked away with our Editor's Choice award. Today, fresh off its Computex 2018 unveil, Corsair returns to our lab with buffed-up and decked-out versions of the K70 and Strafe, both sporting some disco RGB goodness, but now in their MK.2 (pronounced Mark 2) incarnations, with new features, the same killer build quality, and a bit more bling. Corsair set the bar with the... Read more...
Corsair is a well-established brand with gamers, as the company produces high-performance hardware like RAM and peripherals to deck out your bodacious rig. Elgato Systems is the big name in video capture cards and other tech in the industry that many gamers use to record their in-game footage for streaming. Corsair has announced that it will now acquire Elgato Gaming as it looks to expands its streaming portfolio. Specifically, Corsair will be buying the Elgato Gaming division, with the Elgato Eve connected home products spinning off to become a separate company completely unaffiliated with Corsair. That new company will be called Eve Systems. Neither Corsair or Elgato is offering much in the... Read more...

Corsair is getting ready to announce a super tower computer that is capable of swallowing two system configurations. Called the Obsidian Series 1000D, Corsair is appropriately billing the new chassis as a "super tower" enclosure, a befitting description given the case's monstrous size—it measures 693mm x 307mm x 697mm (27.28 x 12.08 x 27.44 inches) and weighs 29.5kg (65 pounds). Utilizing the dual-system layout, builders can install up to an extended ATX (E-ATX) and mini-ITX configuration at the same time. One reason to do is this to have a main setup for playing games and a secondary configuration dedicated to streaming, especially with the growth in popularity of services like Twitch.... Read more...

Today's system builders have more choices than ever before, beyond just internal hardware component selection. To see just how far things have come, you need look no further than the PC chassis market. There are so many options to chose from that, as a consumer, you can be selective about virtually any aspect of the design, from the type of RGB fans it comes with, to the implementation of tempered glass panels. This wasn't always the case in other segments, like the peripherals market for example, but over the last few years many popular brands have been leading the way and now peripherals, such as keyboards and mice, are as varied in design as the clothes you wear or your taste in music. Here... Read more...
We have been experimenting with AMD’s Ryzen 5 processors here at HotHardware and while they have already proven to be a great value, we wanted to explore some different mainstream cooling options to see what kind of additional goodness we could extract from the processors. All-in-one liquid coolers are not quite as nice looking or as potentially high-performance as a custom built system that can employ hard line tubing and multi-waterblock arrangements, but they are still a step up from many air coolers and don’t require the same hefty investment. This makes all-in-one liquid coolers very appealing for mid-range gaming setups where maximizing performance per dollar is often the goal.... Read more...
Corsair has been flexing its muscles recently with new DDR4 DIMM kits that it claims are the fastest in the world. Today, the company is extending its record-breaking performance streak to SO-DIMM kits for notebook, small form factor (SFF), and all-in-one PCs. The PC components company claims that its new Vengeance 32GB (four 8GB modules) SO-DIMM kit is the world's fastest, operating at a brisk 4,000MHz. Like its full-size DIMM counterparts, these SO-DIMM kits are built using Samsung B-die ICs to ensure stability at higher operating speeds. Corsair says that the modules have "super tight" CL19-23-23-45 timings, and they operate at 1.35 volts. Corsair specifically calls out ASRock's X299E-ITX/ac... Read more...
Corsair has unveiled Vengeance LPX memory, which it says is the world's fastest 4x8GB (32GB) kit. The kit consists of a quartet of 8GB RAM modules that are built with hand-sorted and extensively binned Samsung B-die ICs. Timings on the memory are CL19-26-26-46 at 1.5V. The memory kit is fully XMP 2.0 compliant, so users can get these high performance values with the click of a BIOS setting. The RAM is aimed directly at overclockers and enthusiasts to help break benchmarking world records. Corsair writes, "The new CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX CMK32GX4M4K4333C19 kit, running in dual-channel on an Asus ROG MAXIMUS X Hero motherboard and alongside an Intel Core i5-8600K CPU, sets a new precedent for 4x8GB...

The new challenger is from Corsair, which has just unveiled its newest Vengeance LPX 16GB kit, which includes two 8GB DDR4 DIMM modules. Corsair says that its range-topping Vengeance LPX DIMMs clock in at 4.6GHz, which is equal to that of the G.Skill Trident Z modules. And like its competitor, the Vengeance LPX modules feature hand-picked, high-grade Samsung B-die ICs to ensure stable performance in your gaming rig. The Vengeance LPX modules having timings of CL19-26-26-46, and operate at a voltage of 1.5 volts. Although the memory was developed in conjunction with... Read more...
We’ve seen a number of hot SSD products announced over the past week, and Corsair is looking to jump on the pile with the new Neutron NX500 family of PCIe NVMe SSDs. The SSDs are designed to fit into a PCIe 3.0 x4 slot and are the fastest ever introduced by the popular hardware company. The Neutron NX500 offers a no-compromise storage solution when it comes to performance via the use of MLC NAND and dedicated DDR3 cache. Corsair is promising sequential read speeds of up to 3,000 MB/sec and sequential writes of up to 2,400 MB/sec, which should be more than enough to handle the daily riggers of a typical HEDT computer (we’re looking at you, future AMD Ryzen Threadripper or Intel Core X-Series owners)....

Gaming enthusiasts understand the impact that a proper gaming mouse can have on their performance. Whether it be for fast flick-shots in CS:GO or for programming macros in MOBAs, having a gaming mouse tailored to your needs is an absolute necessity. For this review, we compared three newer mid-range gaming mice from a few top PC accessory brands: the Corsair Sabre RGB, SteelSeries Rival 500, and the G.Skill RIPJAWS MX780.  It is important to note that there are different factors that could determine the way a user performs with each mouse. That being said, this review will act as a specification and use case comparison, with some analysis on what gaming styles and play types each mouse might... Read more...
If you are looking for a gaming PC with a sleek and small footprint, Corsair has your back. The company today announced its first “fully built gaming PC” and by all accounts, it looks like Corsair has hit it out of the park on the first swing. The Corsair One is a small form factor (SFF) machine that tries to maximize the use of off-the-shelf components (instead of custom fittings) so that upgrades down the road can be made with ease. Given that this is a Corsair product, you’ll find plenty of Corsair-branded components inside including an SF400 80 Plus Gold SFX power supply (SF500 80 Plus Gold SFX on top-ranging models), Vengeance LPX 2,400MHz memory, and Force LE SSDs in 240GB, 480GB or 960GB...

Are you ready to take your gaming, well “game”, to the next level? Corsair has just launched its SCIMITAR PRO RGB gaming mouse and K95 RGB Platinum mechanical keyboard at CES 2017. According to Corsair, the SCIMITAR PRO RGB gaming mouse is “customization leveled up”, and was designed with MMO and MOBA players in mind. It is based on the Key Slide 12 side-button design, but also includes a 16,000 DPI PMW3367 optical sensor that provides accurate, high-speed tracking. The twelve optimized side buttons were designed to provide tactile feedback and precise actuation, while the patent pending Key Slider macro button control system allows for 8mm of key travel. The mouse comes with three predefined... Read more...
Is your PC in need of a good refresh for improved gaming performance? If so, and you happen to live in Latin America, NVIDIA has a kit for you. It's called the "PC Gaming Revival Kit", and it includes not only the company's mid-range GeForce GTX 1060, but other important pieces of gear as well. As we discovered at its launch, the GTX 1060 is a great graphics card at its given price point. It allows respectable gaming performance at 1440p, and excellent performance at 1080p. Plus, most models on the market can be overclocked quite heavily, so that free performance boost is only a couple of clicks away. Also included in the package is Corsair's Force LE 240GB SSD and CX450M power supply. Both components... Read more...
Corsair is kicking its solid-state drive (SSD) business into high gear with the announcement of the brand new Force MP500 SSD family. The SSDs have a PCIe Gen. 3 x4 M.2 2280 interface and use a Phison PS5007-E7 NVMe controller, making them up to five times faster than SATA 6Gbps SSDs. In its own testing, Corsair says that the Force MP500 is good for sequential read speeds of 3000 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of 2400 MB/sec. That puts the Force MP500 in good company, as Samsung’s SSD 960 Pro offers sequential reads and writes of 3500 MB/sec and 2100 MB/sec respectively. The Samsung SSD 960 EVO, for reference, is rated at 3200 MB/sec and up to 1900 MB/sec respectively. 4K read speeds are... Read more...
