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...
Corsair today has announced that it is launching the first in a new lineup of pre-built gaming PCs that fall under the Vengeance brand name.

The Vengeance 5180 is powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8700 processor, which is a hexa-core SKU with boost speeds of up to 4.6GHz.

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.

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.
