It looks like Corsair is getting ready to jump into the custom water cooling market all the way. They've hired the former CEO and CTO of EKWB as VP/ BU Business Manager and Director of Engineering respectively. Corsair already has a respectable AIO business, but it sure is going to be nice to see them throw their muscle at custom water cooling. I can't wait to see what they come up with!

Corsair may not be known for custom liquid cooling, but right now it seems clear that the company has ambitions in this area, showcasing custom liquid cooling components at Computex 2017 that range from water blocks to reservoirs, radiators and fittings. The addition of EK's former top management will be a massive step towards the company's accelerating their custom water cooling ambitions, as well as develop their H-series of pre-filled all-in-one water coolers further.

Well hopefully they will offer some good stand alone water blocks.

Two really nice guys as well. Glad they landed with a good company. It should be al win-win.


If you look closely, Mark Tanko is in this pic on the left (from a slow dinner in Slovenia on visit for grand opening of EK's new facility). It was an 8 hour dinner.

Too bad..............
I was hoping Corsair would start handling the retail side of GPUs.......it would be awesome to deal with a company of such reputation for my GPUs.

There are already great suppliers of cooling hardware, it's going to be a tough nut and a real niche audience for such a big company.

Also......just an observation......nobody in that picture was going crazy over those fish what-evers on that platter......the look on the second guy from the right sort of screams......WTF is that?????

That was part of the fun. It tasted damn good though. The guy with his arms crossed is famous PC Modder Peter Brands. The guy behind him is Bucky, who used to work at Frozen CPU. Then Eddy, CEO I think of EK, then Mark, then a nice guy from CaseKing, don't remember his name.
