If I could pick one brand that made the biggest splash at Think Computers this year it would hands down be the Vengeance line of products from Corsair. I started reviewing Corsair non-component products a couple years ago with their speaker line. The transition to their input devices was smooth for me because I was already reviewing so many other input devices from other manufacturers. Every Corsair product I’ve reviewed personally has left a lasting impression on me; So much so that the Corsair K90 Illuminated Gaming Keyboard is a product that I’ve been trying to get my hands on all year. On paper the K90 looks quite promising. I always make notion to other things that could be added or subtracted to various products and the K90 looks like it could be the porridge that Goldie Locks picks.+Continue Reading

When it comes to choosing memory for a new system we have many choices. From the high-end with crazy heatspreaders and LED lights to the plain-jane green modules without any heatspreaders. Corsair has always been on my list when recommending memory, especially for the high-end. Previously Corsair’s high-end offering was their Dominator GT line, which were great and were very popular. Corsair is back with a brand new line called their Dominator Platinum. The Dominator Platinum modules are built using only select memory ICs, highly-screened for performance and stability and feature a new industrial design and LED lighting effects. These have to be some of the best looking modules I have seen all year! But how do they perform? Read on to find out!+Continue Reading

A few years ago when I sat at Corsair’s press conference where they announced they were going to be making more than just memory I was a little skeptical. Many companies did the same thing, just rebranding OEM products. Corsair was different, all of their products were original and they said they wanted to be in the top 3 of each product category. They definitely surprised many people and have some of the best cases, cooling solutions and gaming gear. Today I am taking a look at the 550D Mid Tower Case that is part of Corsair’s Obsidian Series. The 550D is made for noise reduction and sound isolation. It features front and side panels that are fully lined with sound-damping material, top and side panels that have their own sound-insulated vent covers, three included 120mm cooling fans, USB 3.0 support and much more.

Cutouts for cable routing and CPU cooling make builds and upgrades neat and simple.+Continue Reading
