Check out this gaming build video by former radio host Carey Holtzman. Quite possibly the most detailed system build video I have ever seen; at nearly two hours long, there is NO ASPECT of the build that Corey does not explore in detail. A great tutorial for first-time builders. Should be seen to be appreciated.
The new Vengeance Pro Series memory, that we launched at Computex 2013 last week, offers superior overclocking on the just release Intel Haswell processors. Vengeance Pro Series modules are built using an 8 layer PCB and highly screened memory ICs. Combining these features with the new aggressive heat spreader will allow these modules to reach frequencies never before seen.
In our effort to properly assist our customers in selecting a Corsair power supply unit, or PSU, the most frequently asked questions by far deal with how and why to make certain selections. Let’s face it, computer enthusiasts are definitely an educated and inquisitive crowd so the old "because I said so" type answer we got from Dad as a kid just doesn’t cut it. Of course, we’d love to sell everyone on the planet an AX1200i Digital ATX Power Supply, but that’s also not the correct approach.
I was curious as to how much power my gaming PC uses with one, two and three graphics cards installed and how that compared to using the integrated graphics of my Intel® Core™ i5 CPU. Corsair Link and my Corsair AX Series Digital ATX PSU helped me determine that! In this blog entry, I show how much power my PC uses with the different configurations.
Right now I have a Core i5-3570K running at 3.4GHz and three Gigabyte GTX670 2GB cards each running at 980MHz.
Currently, I'm just sitting here typing this while listening to music streaming on Pandora. Not a lot going on, so I'm seeing what sums up to a whole lot of nothing going on within Corsair Link. I'm pulling 224.9W from the wall, which is still a lot... but that's primarily because I'm keeping three graphics cards powered even though I'm not using them. Spoiler: We'll see that number lower as I take cards out of the system, even sitting here doing a whole lot of nothing.
Welcome to my build log of the new Obsidian Series 900D! This build log was done in preparation for the upcoming Computex show in Taiwan and I thought I would give you a little sneak preview of one of the systems we will be showing off.
Corsair and Intel have teamed up to created the Computex OC Main Event which will have the largest overclocking cash prize ever! The event takes place on June 3rd from 1pm to 6pm at the Marquee Restaurant and Lounge in Taipei. Ten teams of the world’s best Overclockers will compete for $20,000 in cash prizes using the upcoming Intel® 4th Generation Core™ CPUs as well as soon to be announced Corsair Memory. The event will be live streamed as it happens by Overclocking-TV and will be posted here and Overclocking-TV.
We pride ourselves on producing lots on great technical content here at Corsair, but we know it's not always the easiest thing to find on our site. To help fix this problem, we created a new microsite at corsair.com that highlights our most recent or important technical content, along with downloads, videos, etc.
The easiest way to get there is right from the top menu of our site. You can then easily go straight to the product or content you are most interested in:
I stumbled across a very clever case/system build in our System Builds, Modding, Custom Components, and Picture Gallery section in the Corsair forum. This is a custom built wall mounted media server that forum member Complx has built and named VX-42. This is a great looking system and a space saver all at the same time.
The Neutron Series GTX SSDs are the flagship of the Corsair SSD lineup. In recent months we've moved from using 24nm NAND to 19nm NAND in these drives due to the industry transition to smaller process NAND. We also developed new firmware for both the existing 24nm based Neutron GTX drives and for the newer 19nm based Neutron GTX drives.
