You've just finished meticulously routing cables in your new battlestation and are basking in the subtle glow of RGB LEDs, but your setup is not ready yet. Your old generic mouse has served you well, but its bargain-bin sensor is holding you back. Your crosshairs are unsteady and trying to select individual units is frustrating. Worst of all, it disrupts the svelte aesthetics of your new rig. Fortunately, Corsair has recently released a family of gaming mice with something to fit anyone's needs and budget. These newest additions are the ambidextrous M55 RGB Pro, the shape-shifting Glaive RGB Pro, the weight-tunable Nightsword RGB, and the free-roaming Ironclaw Wireless RGB -- all of which...

Earlier this week, we were wowed by the announcement of the Origin PC Big O 2.0, which is a badass gaming rig that combines a high-end PC with a PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and Nintendo Switch. Little did we know at the time that while Origin PC was celebrating its 10th anniversary, that it was working behind the scenes to be acquired. Today, it has been confirmed that Corsair has agreed to acquire Origin PC for an undisclosed amount of money. With the acquisition, Corsair will be able to expand its PC lineup beyond its existing desktop gaming PCs to include Origin PC's portfolio of gaming desktops, gaming laptops, and workstations. Origin PC is well-known for its highly... Read more...
Corsair has just unveiled a smoking fast new SSD at Computex 2019 called the MP600 M.2 SSD.

Long-time enthusiast will remember the Corsair Hydro H50. It was one of the first closed-loop water coolers on the market and it changed the game. Though the H50 was popular at the time of its release, it was a bit of a head-scratcher, because its performance and installation weren't ideal. Consumers bought it up though, and AIO water coolers were off and running. That was Corsair's first entry into the market, however, and things have gotten considerably better since. It seems as if each new AIO liquid-cooler released by Corsair has improved on their original designs, so much so that closed loop coolers are performing at levels approaching much more expensive custom water cooling loops. In the... Read more...
Corsair has been putting out PC hardware and peripherals for years that appeal to hardcore PC enthusiasts.

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.
