CES 2019: Corsair

Corsair, proprietors of peripherals, memory, cooling and even complete systems put on a display for interested press, and interested we were. Let’s dive in and see what they had on display. A better look at the low profile Cherry MX keyswitches that Corsair uses in some of their products. This is the same form factor as CoolerMaster will be using in their new keyboard. This particular keyboard is 21mm thick and its thinnest; And just under 27mm thick at the thickest point. The Corsair One has had a major upgrade, featuring current generation CPUs and GPUs. Yep, that’s ASRock’s Little …

Corsair at Computex 2018

Corsair, maker of the popular “One” SFF system, had a private suite on show at Computex 2018, much like last year. This meant that the viewing of the products on show was a more intimate affair, albeit overshadowed by Corsair’s love for larger form factor cases. The big news for us SFF’rs this year (albeit beaten at the last moment by Silverstone) was the Corsair SF600 Platinum SFX Modular power supply. Let’s have a look! This new power supply is an update to the original Gold rated SF600 – which James reviewed here. Upon first glance, only minor component changes …

Corsair’s Bulldog Gets a Revamp

We weren’t the biggest fans of the original Corsair Bulldog. The cooler was… loud. Corsair seems to have taken some of the feedback to heart, and a revamp of the Bulldog case and platform has been performed. Gone is the blower fan, replaced with a standard closed loop cooler. The included board appears to be made by MSI, and features a red colour theme. It appears to be a solidly featured M-ITX motherboard.

Corsair launches cable kit for SF-series SFX PSUs

The SF600 SFX power supply from Corsair is a great unit, but one of the complaints I had in my review was that the stock ribbon cables were stiff and unwieldy in a tight SFF build. They weren’t terrible by any means, but they were a far cry from the very flexible cables SilverStone includes with their SFF units. Today Corsair is addressing that with a Premium PSU Cable Kit for the SF-Series, featuring individually sleeved cables. While Corsair offers similarly sleeved cable kits for their other PSUs, this kit comes in lengths appropriate for a SFX power supply: 1x 24-pin …

Corsair SF600 Review – A New Player Has Joined

Welcome to this review of the highly anticipated Corsair SF600 SFX power supply! The SF600 is a 600W SFX form factor power supply, with Gold-rated efficiency, fully modular cables, all-Japanese capacitors, and a semi-passive 92mm fan. The SF600, along with the SF450, is part of the new SF Series of power supplies from Corsair, hopefully the first of many SFF-orientated units from the company. A disclaimer first before we get started though, SFF Network does not currently possess the expertise or equipment to fully test the electrical performance of PC power supplies and as such this article should not be the sole …

Corsair Bulldog case and SF600 PSU updates

Logan from Tek Syndicate is at the Corsair suite at CES and there have been a few tweaks and improvements to the Bulldog chassis since the last time we saw it. The aesthetic has been toned down with a piano black finish in place of the black with bright red accents of the original prototype. It’s a “little bit smaller” by “a few millimeters in each direction”. That would mean it’s still pretty big for an ITX case though. The cooling has been tweaked but I couldn’t really discern the changes from the video alone. There’s also a few other miscellaneous …

Corsair Releases the Hydro Series H5

Corsair has launched the Hydro Series H5 SFF cooler. This is a closed loop cooler directly aimed at the SFF market, and Corsair claims it can cool 150w of heat quietly and efficiently. As we know all too well, cooling in SFF builds can be somewhat of a challenge. Corsair hopes that the Hydro Series H5 will help with that, ensuring that even overclocked CPUs can be cooled effectively. Corsair’s says that their Hydro Series H5 SF is easy to install and measures just 84mm in height. The design allows the unit to be fitted directly atop of any Mini-ITX …
