    Corsair Carbide Series 600Q EATX Case Review @ [H]

    In our tests (which you will of course have to judge for yourself since I work here and performed some of them myself) we are significantly quieter and with better cooling performance at the same time. There is also the added advantage in the inverse design that if you were going to install a...

    Corsair Carbide Series 600Q EATX Case Review @ [H]

    This is an awesome and very thorough review. One of the only ones who took the time to put differently sized radiators in the mount locations, test noise levels, and also test cooling. Thanks for the level of detail, it's nice to know our work is appreciated.

    Corsair Unveils Its First Inverted-ATX Cases

    Before Corsair got into cases we almost always used Silverstone cases for trade shows and home use. Never understood how people were buying silly weird plastic things from other guys when you could have had a TJ09 back in the day. Of course I think our cases are better now (because I design...

    Corsair Announces Hydro Series GFX Liquid Cooled GeForce GTX 980 Ti

    The fan included in this kit isn't actually the standard H55 fan, it's much closer to the retail SP120 LED fans, which have a lot better performance than the stock H55. So really we probably should have called this cooler an H65 or something.

    Corsair Announces Hydro Series GFX Liquid Cooled GeForce GTX 980 Ti

    Because the CPU coldplate contacts directly to the GPU die and not a heatspreader (like a CPU uses), we get a great amount of cooling efficiency. We've used the H55/H75 to cool tons of GPUs in our lineup (the only difference between the two units is the H75 includes two SP120L fans instead of...

    Corsair Graphite Series 780T Lucky Draw!

    I'd love to do this. But unfortunately people are convinced that cases that come without fans are "budget" cases. And to be honest, throwing 2-3 fans into a case is not that expensive, and wouldn't save much retail - maybe $5-$10? So $149 with three fans or $139 with no fans - it makes it...

    Corsair Hydro H110i GT Recall

    Haha, 65F, sorry. It's warm here but not that warm.

    Corsair Hydro H110i GT Recall

    To clarify - the reason we're recalling these is because we have to investigate the cause of the failure. Normally the expansion of frozen liquid is accounted for inside these units by having a little bit of air in the loop. This was done similar to all our other products - and all our other...

    Corsair Announces Hydro Series H100i GTX 240mm and H80i GT 120mm Liquid CPU Coolers

    Do you mind telling me what we're doing wrong and how we could do better?

    Corsair 450D vs 550D

    Our PSUs come with the thumbscrews or regular screws, depending on the model. Most PSUs come with four screws to mount them.

    Corsair Graphite Series 780T Full-Tower Case Review @ [H]

    Cases without windows do not sell very well at that price point. Basically it seems that if you want to spend $100 or more on a case, you absolutely must have a window. However, the side panels are reversible and we sell spare parts on our website for modders, so if you wanted to you...

    Corsair Carbide Air 240

    The Carbide Air 540 has two optical drive cages. Did you need a third?

    Corsair Carbide Air 240

    It should fit standard width video cards with a waterblock, but it will not fit larger-than-spec video cards with a block suck as the Asus DirectCU II or Classified cards.

    Corsair 450D vs 550D

    We have the cutout for the cable.
