Corsair Releases Black Aluminum Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboards

Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance PC gaming hardware, today announced that the award-winning Vengeance K70 mechanical gaming keyboard -- in black aluminum with red backlit keys - is now available with Cherry MX Blue and Brown keyswitches in addition to the original Cherry MX Reds. Similar to all Vengeance gaming keyboards, the latest K70 doesn't miss when it counts due to genuine German-made Cherry MX switches, the most popular and accurate mechanical keyswitches for gamers - with over 5 billion sold.

The sophisticated aesthetics of the refreshed Vengeance K70 gaming keyboard starts with an anodized black aluminum chassis for long-lasting durability and timeless style. Vibrant red backlighting shines through each key, oozing an industrial look capable of complimenting any gamer den. The overall backlighting can be adjusted to four levels of intensity while the lighting for each key can be independently enabled or disabled. The key-by-key lighting customization allows users to highlight just the keys they need to emphasize, such as WASD, and then save the setting directly to the K70's onboard memory.

Corsair AX1500i Bags 80 Plus Titanium Certification

Corsair's upcoming flagship power supply, the 1500-Watt AX1500i, which debuted at this year's International CES, qualified for the coveted 80 Plus Titanium efficiency rating, which is a notch above 80 Plus Platinum. The unit should be most efficient when plugged into 230V AC lines, but was tested on a 115V AC line. It was tested to offer 91.23% efficiency at 10% load, 92.63% efficiency at 20% load, 94.04% efficiency at 50% load, and 91.34% efficiency at 100% load, staying above 90% at all test scenarios. The fully modular PSU offers a boat-load of power connectors, and should drive R9 290X 4-way CrossFireX setups with 220W TDP FX-9590 CPUs, without breaking a sweat. It supports Corsair LINK, giving you a degree of control and monitoring over the PSU's vitals. The AX1500i is expected to hit shelves later this year, priced at US $450.
