We review the Corsair HXi Series 750 Watt PSU, this beast has moved from Gold towards being 80plus Platinum certified. So that means it is fully modular and optimized for silence and high efficiency. The power supply is quite delicious in performance, the one massive 63 Amp 12-volts says it all really. Superb for mainstream to high-end and even multi-GPU solutions. Corsair also embeds their LINK technology into the PSU. That means you can monitor the PSU with the help of software, things like PSU efficiency, power usage or simply to adjust the fan RPM. We'll show you that in the review though.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it is the Corsair Carbide Air 240. Based on the popular success of the 540 this is a small mini ITX form factor chassis that will house the smallest, but also the biggest stuff inside your computer. A high-end graphics card and liquid cooling ? Not even an issue. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand.

Corsair recently released a USB stick, all 3.0 compatible and it's called the Flash Voyager GTX . That surely hints towards a nice caliber. We test the 128 GB version of this model, and well it's the fastest and most l33t little fracker your money can get you with read performance of 450 MB per sec !

We review the Corsair Force LX 256 GB SSD. Corsair recently released this new addition to their SSD lineup. The series is to compete with Samsung and Micron mostly, in both price and performance. The end result is a very capable and fast SSD that can keep up with the big guns in the market, yet remains priced in a sweet spot.

We review the Corsair Professional Series AX1500i PSU, this beast is 80plus Titanium certified. The 1500W PSU is exorbitant in performance, the one massive 125 Amp 12-volts says it all really. Superb for multi-GPU solutions and hardcore enthusiasts. Corsair also embeds their LINK technology into the PSU. That means you can monitor the PSU with the help of software, things like PSU efficiency, power usage or simply to adjust the fan RPM. We'll show you that in the review though.

Armed with a competitive price this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.

We test and review the all new Corsair Graphite Series 760T chassis. The chassis is of course finds its legacy in the Graphite series but this one is different, in many ways. The looks are insane with a big redesign, large see through window, hinged and latched doors, magnetic top panel and even a fan controller. It is one of these x-factor products really, and will get embraced by the PC enthusiast community. The chassis is a mid-tower based chassis. Let's have a peek at what Corsair has to offer shall we?

We review the rather colorful Corsair Raptor K40 with dome based keys and a rather wide variety of colors for backlighting of this gaming keyboard. The K40 is the first in the Raptor series. It has a very recognizable look and concept, but it adds some more features, it has LED back-lit keys that you can customize colors wise. Let's have a peek shall we?

In this review we test the Corsair H75 liquid cooler. The H75 features a 120 mm radiator that is 25mm thin but also was applied with two really silent low RPM fans, so you add this kit in a push-pull configuration. The end results is a LCS kit that cools pretty nicely, but remains absolutely silent.

We review the new Air 540 boom box, eeuhm chassis in the Carbide series of PC cases from Corsair. It has to be the most unusual product we have seen in a long time being cube shaped. But working our way through it we learned one thing, it is an absolutely innovative and impressive chassis. Something different, and we like that very much.

We review the Corsair CX600M PSU. This 600 Watt Power Supply is grand in performance but even better in price. A product that is affordable, yet comes with the quality you can expect from a name like Corsair. Being the more 'regular' non CX model these power supplies are a bit more affordable, yet remain high quality and high performance and 80 Plus Bronze certified. 80 Plus Bronze, semi-modular, and the fan doesn’t really spin up beyond its minimum speed until around 50% load. How does that sound ?

We review the Corsair Vengeance K70 cherry red mechanical keyboard. The K70 is the successor of the popular K60 in terms of the overall basis and concept, but it adds some more features, is much more cool looking with full LED lit keys and has a trick or two encompassed in the new design as well. Let's have a peek shall we ?

We test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor. With cool looks and very silent operation we can see this product ending up in a lot of PC builds alright.

We test and review the Corsair H110 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H110 is Corsairs first 280mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor. With cool looks and very silent operation we can see this product ending up in a lot of PC builds alright.

We test and review the updated revision of the Corsair H60 (2013 edition). The Hydro Series H60 (2013 Edition) updates the first generation Hydro Series H60 by incorporating several new upgrades that improve upon its CPU cooling performance while maintaining an affordable price point. These improvements include a newly redesigned copper cooling block with improved flow, as well as an upgraded custom designed static pressure fan based on the design of our Airflow SP120 retail fan.

The new budget chassis in the Carbide series of PC cases from Corsair would be the 200R, Corsair markets the product being entry-level, and with a 60 USD pricetag, we can not argue on that. These chassis remain to be good looking but really are feature rich products. Keywords here would be a nice design chassis, tool free, lots of of space, nice airflow and even prepped for liquid cooling.
We test the Corsair Neutron and Neutron GTX SSDs today. They are equipped with that LAMD controller. The GTX version is paired with Toggle NAND flash ICs from Toshiba whereas the 'regular' model' comes with 'normal' ONFI Sync NAND memory. Both SATA3 SSDs offer serious performance, with the GTX taking the lead.
We review the Corsair Professional Series AX1200i PSU. The 1200W PSU is massive in performance, the one massive 100A 12-volts says it all really. Excellent for multi-GPU solutions and hardcore overclockers. Corsair also embeds their LINK technology into the PSU. That means you can monitor the PSU with the help of software, things like PSU efficiency, power usage or simply to adjust the fan RPM. We'll show you that in the review though.
We review the Corsair Force GS 240GB SSD. Corsair introduces the Force GS series, and that are equipped with the 2281 series SandForce controller. Paired with SanDisk Toggle Toggle NAND flash ICs that will increase read and write performance to 555MB/s and 525 MB/s respectively which makes the Force GS the fastest SSDs they have ever brought to market. With 4K random write performance estimated at 90,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) the product is definitely in the right performance bracket we like to see Corsair in. But have a peek at the review.
We review the Corsair HX 850 GOLD power supply. Yes, the new HX 850 is Gold certified, that means it's 90% efficient at 50% load. Efficiency matters. The PSU itself is partly modular, for most of you with a side panel window in their chassis a must really as you'll want modular cables. The new HX 850 PSU also improved on the audibility front. Have a peek at the article.
We review the Corsair GS800 power supply. The power supply is on the market for a while now already and it one of the more popular models. It offers Bronze efficiency, a single 12V rail and comes with a fan that doesn't activate until you use 20% of PSU load. That fan BTW can be lit with three led colors. The PSU itself is non-modular, not a biggy for most, but most of you with a side panel window in their chassis really want modular cables. Being 800W and with all the aforementioned features the PSU is priced in the 90 EUR range here in the Netherlands, and that's not a bad price as you are about to find out.
We test and review the Corsair Vengeance 2000 wireless headset. The Vengeance 2000 works through a USB transmitter powered surround-sound ogre headset and comes with nice big 50mm drivers and revised USB drivers that include surround sound, capable of offering 16-bit/48 KHz playback.
