APRIL FOOLS: Corsair acquires Minutiae Media for $1.77 million; SFF.Network to be rebranded RGB.Network

A letter from @PlayfulPhoenix, owner of SFF.Network: Today I have some big news to share: as of today, Minutiae Media (the company that operates SFF.Network) has been acquired by Corsair! Furthermore, as a part of this transition, SFF.Network will now be called RGB.Network, becoming one of the brightest spots on the net. It goes without saying that Corsair has a massive reputation within the small form factor community, having brought to market such early innovations as the long-lived and industry-heralded Bulldog. Not resting on their laurels, Corsair also developed enclosures like the Graphite 380T, which manage to fit an ITX …

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 …
