Corsair Launches the Corsair One SFF Gaming PC

This week Corsair unveiled the company’s first ever fully built gaming PC, the aptly named Corsair One. While the One does represent a venture outside of Corsair’s usual product lineup, it is not necessarily outside of the company’s comfort zone as enthusiast gaming has been in Corsair’s DNA since the very beginning. With that said, the Corsair One is an impressive piece of engineering and design.

The small-form-factor tower packs quite a bit inside, featuring not one, but two ultra thin, 240mm closed-loop water coolers which cool down both the CPU and the GPU and are supplied air by the tastefully designed ventilation holes at either [...]

Corsair Teases the ONE PC, Preparing Entry into Boutique System Building

Corsair recently put up a teaser for its latest project known as the Corsair ONE.

The leading peripherals and PC component manufacturer is looking to dip its toes into the pre-built PC market after previously inching towards the pre-built realm with their Bulldog PC which was launched last year in a barebones or DIY kit configuration. The Corsair ONE however, changes the game as it’s not only pre-built, but it’s also the first Corsair system designed for the desktop.

From the limited images they’ve shown so far, the ONE has a design that’s very typical of Corsair’s traditional design language sporting a futuristic yet not [...]

After being rumored for quite some time, Apple has recently sent out invites for an upcoming special event set to go down on October 27 at 10AM PST.
