The Corsair Link Lighting Node is a component that comes with our Corsair Link Cooling and Lighting Kit, but many people do not know that can be used independently, without other Corsair Link components. The Lighting Node offers quick and easy lighting control for your system, and comes with everything you need to light up the inside of your case in a color of your choice. If you want to have more advanced functionality and control over the Lighting Node, there are some ways of linking it up with other hardware components, but first let's talk about the stand alone functionality of the Corsair Link Lighting Node.
We have released an updated version of the Corsair Link software, version 1.2.5. The v1.2.5 software can be downloaded from the Corsair Link product page using the Downloads tab.

Corsair Link has recently been updated to version 2, and what this means for users is that usability, compatibility and general functionality have all been greatly improved. The update coincides with two new product lines that have recently been updated to include Corsair Link support, right out of the box. These two product lines are the new AXi series PSUs, and the Hydro Series H100i and H80i CPU coolers. These "i" (intelligent) devices do not require any extra hardware to be purchased in order to utilize the Corsair Link V2 software — support for Corsair Link is built in. These both simplify the setup of Corsair Link, and lower the barrier of entry for people wanting to take advantage of the system monitoring and control that Corsair Link can provide.
There's almost always some very cool unexpected news announced each year at Computex and we have some this year. Corsair has proudly announced the Neutron Series and Neutron Series GTX Series SSDs. These SSDs come in fast, and faster configurations respectively. Both are based on a new SSD controller exclusive to Corsair, the LM87800 6Gb/s SSD controller from Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD).
Here's the Neutron Series SSD. Neutron Series SSDs are based on Micron ONFI NAND flash and it is extremely fast.
Corsair Link™ is an integrated system that gives you complete control of your PC’s CPU cooling and case lighting systems. I recently did some Corsair Link testing to document some of its features. This is yet another instance where my job affords me the opportunity to play a fun game while testing our products. It's a difficult job but, someone has to do it. Take it easy on me if you see me out in BF3 land.
