Is your motherboard's NVMe slot pining for a partner? Now is a good time to play storage matchmaker, because there are some tantalizing Cyber Monday deals on high-speed solid state drives out there. As in, savings of up to 50% off MSRP. While the discounts over actual street pricing are not quite as deep, there are still some exceptional bargains out there. For example, Corsair's Force Series MP600 1TB SSD is on sale for $124.99 at Amazon (save $125 over MSRP). This is the lowest price it has ever been. Looking at its price history on Amazon, the same drive was selling for around $190 to $200 just six months ago and has been coming down in price ever since. More recently, it was selling for around... Read more...
Corsair is officially in the monitor game, with its first-ever gaming monitor release. Technically you could say the company entered the fray a couple weeks ago when it announced its Xeneon 32QHD165, but that was merely an introduction—the 32-inch gaming monitor wasn't actually available to buy, until now. It's not cheap, though. The Xeneon 32QHD165 is "built from the ground up for gamers and creators," and carries a $799.99 MSRP. Perhaps pricing will come down after some time goes by (or during the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday festivities), especially as it lands in the hands of more retailers. But for now, it's only available from Corsair, and for its full list price. So why... Read more...
Alder Lake is almost here (we know, it feels like we've been saying that forever, but it's really true!), and at minimum, upgrading to a 12th Gen Intel Core processor also necessitates a new motherboard (Z690). You may also opt to jump on the DDR5 bandwagon, but what about your cooler? Some companies have announced additional brackets so that existing coolers will work with Alder Lake. Corsair is among them, with a new Retrofit Kit for its expansive lineup of all-in-one liquid coolers. The caveat is that it's not free. Fortunately, it's also not expensive—the asking price is $2.99 (€2.99 / £1.99) with free shipping anywhere in the United States or Europe. According to the press... Read more...
The big event where we expect Intel to announce its 12th generation Alder Lake processor family is just three weeks away. Lenovo has already spilled the beans on its Legion 9000K gaming desktop PC in the lead-up to the launch, while pricing from numerous ASUS motherboards has leaked. The latest company to jump on the Alder Lake bandwagon is Corsair, which tweeted out an image of its upcoming Vengeance DDR5 memory modules (pictured above). Baseline speeds for the next-generation memory speeds come in at DDR5-4800, while Corsair previously indicated that it is working to ramp to DDR5-6800 speeds in the near future. This would nearly double maximum bandwidth -- compared to DDR4-3200 -- to 51 GB/sec,... Read more...
The race to build the fastest PCIe 4.0 SSDs for the PC market rages on, with key players like Samsung, TeamGroup, and Corsair pushing the envelope on a seemingly weekly basis. Corsair is the latest to strike with its MP600 PRO XT. The MP600 PRO XT brings attention to itself for a rather beefy (and stealthy) heatsink mounted to the PCB. Corsair says that the reason for this is to more efficiently dissipate heat, which helps to deliver sustained high performance without throttling. However, if you want to go over the top with cooling, Corsair says that the MP600 PRO XT is compatible with its Hydro X Series XM2 Water Block. Going this route will allow you to integrate the SSD with a custom cooling... Read more...
Intel's upcoming Alder Lake launch will usher in the start of the DDR5 era in the consumer space, and then sometime next year, AMD will hop on board with its Zen 4 lineup. This is going to result in higher bandwidth memory products, with transfers (or 'speed' if you prefer to call it that) starting at 6,400MT/s. The added bandwidth could come at a cost, and not just a monetary one, but also paid for in heat. It is hard to know exactly what to expect just yet, because even though some early DDR5 memory kits landed on Amazon a few weeks ago, they have not arrived in earnest. What we do know, however, are the finalized official specifications laid out by JEDEC, and how DDR5 will differ from DDR4... Read more...
It seems like just yesterday when Intel released its 11th generation Rocket Lake-S processors for the desktop market. Built using Intel's [extremely] mature 14nm process node, Rocket Lake-S is the last of its breed and will give way to all-new 12th generation Alder Lake architecture later this year. Alder Lake is built on Intel's latest 10nm Enhanced SuperFin process and uses a hybrid configuration with a combination of high-performance cores coupled with efficiency cores. Next-generation DDR5 memory support will also be along for the ride, and Corsair is here to state that it will be ready to party. Corsair explained that "DDR4 memory has had a great run," but it's time to get the ball rolling... Read more...
From gaming, working, and streaming video, Corsair and Elgato have you covered with several new products announced today. Joining the CHAMPION SERIES lineup are two new mice and a new mechanical gaming keyboard to bring pro-level performance to all. Alongside Corsair’s product launch, Elgato is bringing up the Cam Link Pro which could be a must-have for multi-camera productions. Sabre Pro Mice The new mice coming to the Champion series are the SABRE RGB Pro and the Sabre Pro that are simple yet elegant-looking mice. They feature “AXON hyper-processing technology and 8,000Hz polling” to deliver fast inputs for games that require flick shots and fast reflexes. Moreover, these... Read more...
It appears that Corsair is trying to up its game in the SSD space soon with a Pro-level successor to the current Corsair MP600 SSD. The Corsair MP600 Pro leaked on Amazon yesterday and boasts a whopping 7,000MB/S (7GB/s) read and 6,850 MB/s (6.85GB/s) write speeds. This sort of performance would put Corsair in the same ballpark as, if not beating out, competitors such as Samsung or Sabrent. Thanks to keen-eyed momomo_us on Twitter, we get to see the Corsair 1TB MP600 Pro on the German Amazon website. According to the listing, the high-performance SSD uses a x4 PCIe 4 NVME M.2 interface, which allows the read and write speeds marketed. Inside, the SSD uses “high-density 3D TLC NAND,”...

For some people, Windows 10 can be a bit of a roller coaster. One moment everything is working fine, then the next moment a simple 'chkdsk' command is wreaking havoc, throwing PCs into a blue screen of death (BSOD). Fortunately, Microsoft has issued a hotfix for that specific issue. Unfortunately, there is another issue causing BSODs on some PCs, and it relates to a Corsair driver. Apparently the problematic driver was being doled out through Windows Update. Normally this is not cause for concern—given the myriad hardware combinations out there, it's a miracle Windows 10 runs at all, and Microsoft generally does a good job of keeping systems updated and humming along. Not without exception,... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen 5000 family of processors and NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 30 Series of graphics cards are among the hottest PC hardware products on the market today -- well, that it is if you can actually get your hands on them, which is a near-impossible at the moment. However, you can get both if you step into Corsair's new Vengeance a7200 Series Gaming PC. Corsair is allowing you to configure the Vengeance a7200 with up to a 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 5900X processor along with up to a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards. Both are incredibly potent pieces of hardware that will fuel your 4K gaming needs with ease at maximum detail settings. Given that this is Corsair we're talking... Read more...
Yesterday we brought you some compelling deals on some fast Sabrent SSDs, and we’re back for another round today. This time we’ve got some deals on some blazing fast 1TB PCIe 3.0 and PCIe 4.0 based SSDs that won’t empty your wallet in the process (along with some info on Prime Day 2020). Starting things off is the Kingston A2000 1TB SSD, which is priced at just $99.99, representing a 29 percent discount off its normal asking price. That price gets you plenty of storage in an M.2 2280 form-factor with a PCIe 3.0 interface. Kingston lists sequential read/write speeds at 2,200MB/sec and 2,000MB/sec respectively for the A2000, which is quite good at this price point. Kingston... Read more...
The good people at Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island have been helping kids with critical health conditions make their dreams come true for decades now. Founded in 1980, Make-A-Wish "grants wishes for children between the ages of 2½ and 18 years of age with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

AMD came out with guns blazing with the announcement of its Matisse Refresh Ryzen 3000XT processors, which are built around an enhanced version of the company’s 7nm process node. While Corsair isn’t using AMD’s latest processors, the company is bringing the standard-issue Ryzen 3000 processors to its “One” family of compact gaming PCs for the first time ever. Despite its compact dimensions, the One a100 is available with either a 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 3900X or the flagship 16-core/32-thread Ryzen 9 3950X processor. The latter is an absolute beast for a consumer desktop system with its 3.5GHz base clock and 4.7GHz boost clock. No matter which processor you... Read more...
PAX East is a show that offers something for just about anyone. The floor is filled with everything from the latest video games to innovative board games. It particularly presents an opportunity for PC manufacturers to show off their wildest gaming rigs and more. We checked in with Origin to see their Big O PC-Console hybrids in person and then stopped by ThermalTake for a master class in custom liquid cooling to complement their new LCGS PC lineup. Origin has been toying with the idea of integrating a gaming console into a PC chassis ever since the original Big O surfaced in 2010. The original concept cohabitated a liquid cooled Xbox 360 with a first-generation Intel Core i7 930 powered PC.... Read more...
When we last visited Corsair, the company had acquired Origin PC to beef up its portfolio when it comes to crafting boutique gaming PCs. Today, Corsair has announced updates to its One and One Pro gaming systems that bring 9th generation Intel Core power to the table along with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics. Starting off with the new additions to the Corsair One family, we have the One i145 and One i164. The One i145 brings an octa-core Intel Core i7-9700K processor to the table paired with a potent GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card. Moving up to the One i164 will get you an upgrade to the Core i9-9900K (8-core/16-thread) with a flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. No matter which system you... Read more...
The memory wars are raging in the enthusiast community, and Corsair is the latest to throw down the gauntlet. The company has just announced its latest Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory modules which top out at an impressive 4,866MHz. Corsair says that these modules will work on any modern desktop motherboard, but they have been specifically designed for maximum performance on AMD's X570 platform that underpins third-generation Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 processors. Getting more down to brass tacks, Corsair has certified the "record breaking" performance of these 4,866MHz modules on ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula, MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE, and MSI Prestige X570 Creation motherboards. At this time, the Vengeance... Read more...
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. The is PCIe 4.0-ready, which means that it will deliver its best performance when paired with AMD X570 motherboards. The SSD offers 4,950MB/sec sequential read speeds when used in PCIe 4.0 slots. Corsair says that is ten times the performance of many SATA SSDs and fifty times faster than some traditional hard drives. The faster PCIe 4.0 slots will be available for the first time as part of the AMD X570 chipset and third-gen AMD Ryzen processors. The M600 SSD uses high-density 3D TLC NAND with a Phision PS5016-E16 controller to enable a new level of single-drive SSD performance. While the sequential... Read more...
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. When we last visited Corsair, we posted a hands-on with the Hydro Series H100i platinum CPU liquid coolers. The most recent gaming gear from Corsair come in the form of a pair of high-performance gaming mice. The first is the Ironclaw RGB Wireless, which as the name implies is a wireless version of the Ironclaw RGB mouse launched earlier this year. The mouse uses Slipstream Corsair Wireless Technology with an 18,000 dpi sensor to give cutting edge wireless performance. The wireless mouse has the same palm grip optimized shape and rubberized sides of the wired version. Corsair uses 2.4GHz... Read more...
