Review: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-04 Chassis

Introduction

Corsair recently updated their budget case lineup with the new Carbide SPEC-04, the successor to the Carbide SPEC-03. The Carbide SPEC-04 brings an overhauled design and some extra features yet maintain its budget price point.

For our review today, we received the Corsair Carbide SPEC-04 in black however, it will also come in red and yellow as well. Corsair’s Carbide SPEC case series has always had the design language that screamed gaming, but the fourth iteration of the series, the SPEC-04, is quite a bit different. Whereas previous generation SPEC series cases featured an ultra-aggressive design, the new SPEC-04 features a design that’s a bit more [...]

Review: Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard

The Need for Speed!

Mechanical keyboards have become fairly ubiquitous in today’s market. Likewise, RGB peripherals are pretty much a dime a dozen with pretty much every component company RGB-ifiying everything in their product lineup. From the typical RGB keyboards and mice, to the not so common RGB power supplies, RGB is everywhere, and it is likely here to stay. So, with that said, it’s probably not surprising that pretty much every new “gaming keyboard” does little but combine RGB lighting with mechanical key switches and call it a day. Offering little, if not nothing actually unique to gamers. I mean, what else is there to do?

Well, that’s [...]

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 Releases Vegeance RGB DDR4 Memory

Corsair’s new Vengeance DDR4 modules adds *you guessed it* RGB lighting to its distinct heat spreaders.

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 [...]

CES 2016: Corsair Introduces Several New Budget Cases

In the days leading up to the CES main events, Corsair is introduced the Carbide Spec-Alpha, Carbide 400C, and Carbide 400Q to its budget gaming series chassis.

The Carbide Spec-Alpha rocks some aggressive angular lines that are reminiscent of the ever so popular Corsair Bulldog. Its mesh front cover has sufficient room for up to three 120 mm fans but, due to the lack of clearance from the hard drive cage, there is only enough space for a 240 mm radiator. Buyers can choose between red or blue as the primary color, each comes with color matching fans. These and any other additional fans can then be controlled via a built in three speed fan controller.
