UPDATED: CORSAIR Launches the ONE i500 PC

Due to my particular time zone, I’m very used to waking up in the morning to a press release or two in my SFF Network email inbox. However, what I’m not used to, is getting a public press release in my personal inbox before the official media one has arrived!

CORSAIR sent out a public marketing email this morning touting the new ONE i500, the long awaited successor to the original CORSAIR ONE. The new chassis features wood accents, touch controlled lighting, and a larger form factor than the previous system. The product page linked in the email, however, doesn’t exist.

The ONE i500 appears to contain a M-ATX board (the superior form factor, fight me) using Intel’s LGA1700 socket and an i9-14900k. GPU options are either a NVIDIA RTX 4080 SUPER or a 4090. Memory upgradeability is limited to 64GB of DDR5 (seems low considering 4 slots), and the storage bundled comes in at 2TB of NVMe SSD. As with the previous ONE, closed loop colling is the name of the game here, with both the CPU and GPU under water.

The system is powered by CORSAIR’s SF1000L power supply. I guess we’ll learn more when the product page actually goes live!

The following images are from the email – all the “LEARN MORE” links lead to a 404;

 

 

EDIT: The press release is live! (6 hours after the marketing email) The product page is still broken though…   Chassis measures in at 25.4 Litres. Not SMOL, but not bad for a mainstream(ish) M-ATX chassis.

MILPITAS, CA, May 6th, 2024 – CORSAIR® (Nasdaq: CRSR) today announced the launch of the CORSAIR ONE i500 PC, a compact powerhouse packed with cutting-edge components and boasting high-end performance for content creators, AI-savvy professionals, and gamers. The sleek, space-saving design houses up to an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4090 graphics card and Intel® Core™ i9-14900K processor—both liquid cooled. Combined with next-gen DDR5 memory and 2TB of NVMe SSD storage, the CORSAIR ONE i500 delivers the speed, storage, and reliability you’d expect from a high-end PC.


The CORSAIR ONE i500 PC is 30% smaller than a full-sized desktop PC but doesn’t compromise on power. Modern liquid cooling delivers top-tier thermal efficiency, minimizing CPU and GPU temperatures while achieving faster performance, all while being noticeably quieter than traditional cooling. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080 SUPER graphics cards power a quantum leap in framerates and AI-powered graphics, while Intel 14th Gen CPU architecture makes sure you game and multitask without compromise.


The sleek, aluminum case with FSC-Certified real wood panels—each with one-of-one natural grain—fits beautifully into any modern workspace or gaming setup. Future upgradability is possible with the CORSAIR ONE i500 PC using industry standard PCIe, RAM, and SSD slots, allowing you to craft a system as unique as your ambitions. The CORSAIR ONE ORIGIN Edition can be customized with up to 192GB of DDR5 memory and 24TB of storage to elevate creative, multitasking, and gaming experiences. The configurator also offers options to add in capture cards, network cards, audio cards, USB expansion cards, and more.


Featuring customizable underglow and front-panel lighting, the CORSAIR ONE i500 gives you the power to personalize your setup in seconds. A touch-sensor spotlight for the rear I/O will help you find the wide array of high-performance connectivity options.


When the first generation of CORSAIR ONE PC was launched, we set a new standard in the world of compact, performance PCs. This new generation raises the bar even higher, with incredible raw speed and efficiency in a sleek and modern look. We are also offering the choice of two colors available from the Corsair webstore and select retailers: Wood Dark and Wood Bright.

The CORSAIR ONE i500 PC is packed with uncompromising performance in a compact case that powers through today’s most demanding games and applications with ease, supported by ample memory and storage for all your needs.

I like the exterior design, too bad it's not SFF anymore. Also loading this with a 14900K and a 4090 is just asking for cooling capacity issues in this layout. A single 120mm radiator for a 14900K 🤪 Not going with a 7800X3D in this build signals to me it's not designed to be sold to people that read a review or two.

Check out der8auer's review. Like you would guess runs very hot, it's also really loud even at idle with no way to adjust the fan profile.

Yeah I've seen it, everyone will blame the reason on the "tiny case", even though the previous version was almost half the volume yet also handled top tier gear. But Corsair can apparently not read TDP guidelines.

Well, my guess with their press photos etc. they aim it more at the 3D-AI-Media worker with occassional bouts of gaming?

Alas, the complete setup feels so entirely wrong to me - why wouldnt you set it up similar to a Meshlicious, with a rotated mainboard at best?

Whenever I see this fancy but futile "look I'm a great PR flack - look what I cooked up!" attempts, I want to go out and build something that shows HOW its done right ..

.. like with that other failure of that .. wait, this also was a Corsair, the 2500X, which is a 53L case that only allows for mATX and ITX boards. I was like: Ok, grab one of the bigger Mars Computers fish tanks, add nifty hardware inside, and show that one off. Their cases might be not of fancy materials, feeling a bit on the cheaper side, but hey - you get 4 - 5 cases of that for the same price?

With Corsair, it always feel like: They finally get it right, and then suddenly .. the wtfpm rate jumps to new heights.

cu, w0lf.

Looks like an M-ATX version of the Fractal Design Era. Too bad about the noise of the system. A 240mm would easily fit on that side bracket. Not sure why a 120mm aio was used. Maybe old inventory a supplier is trying to offload?
