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 sizes. You can also opt for either a 1TB or 2TB HDD to further bolster your storage needs.
When it comes to the brains of the operation, Corsair has selected a MSI Z270 Mini-ITX, which on the Corsair One can be partnered with an Intel Core i7 7700 processor and an MSI GeForce GTX 1070 8GB graphics card. Stepping up to the Corsair One Pro will get you a Core i7 7700K and a water-cooled MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB. On the Corsair One Pro, both the CPU and GPU are cooled with separate 240mm radiators.
At the top of the case is a single 140mm case fan that sucks in air from the side panels and expels it through the top. Speaking of the chassis, it is constructed of “aircraft grade” aluminum and measures just 380mm x 176mm x 200mm. You’ll also find LED lighting around case, which you can customize to your taste. Corsair has spent a great deal of time on minimizing sound output and said that the One operates at just 20 dBA at idle, which makes it a perfect fit for a gaming-centric living room.
“With over 22 years powering the world’s best PCs, we knew now was the right time to bring together all our knowledge to create a truly exceptional PC” said Corsair founder and CEO Andy Paul. “Corsair One is the result – unbelievably compact, quiet and with incredible performance, it changes what people will expect from a high-end PC.”
