The Corsair Carbide Air 540 is the company's first cube chassis; it aims to offer the perfect base for a compact water-cooling system. Don't be fooled by the name as it can swallow up to two 280 mm radiators without issue. While everything looks great on paper, we check to see how it stacks up against the competition.
Corsair decided to enrich their mainstream CX series with new units that feature modular cables. Today, we will test the fresh CX600M going for only a few more bucks than its non-modular CX600 counterpart. The "M" specification will most likely have many users pick the new unit over the non-modular version, despite the slight price increase.
Corsair's new Hydro Series H110 is a monster of a cooler with its 280 mm radiator, but is bigger always better? It is time to put the H110 to the test and see what all the hype is about.
Corsair is once again expanding their lineup of CPU cooling solutions. This time with the Hydro Series H90, pairing good cooling and low noise levels up in one attractive package. At less than $100 it is also priced competitively to go head-to-head with high-end air coolers.
Corsair continues to move down the price range ladder to offer cases for every budget. The Carbide 200R is the most affordable case from Corsair yet, but still manages to impress with a simple but very effective feature set.
Corsair is hitting the high-end category hard with their excellent AXi and AX units. In a recent review we evaluated the AX760, which amazed us with its features and the performance it registered. Now, the time has come for its stronger sibling, the AX860, to prove its worth against our loaders.

A couple of days ago we reviewed the Corsair AX760i, which impressed us with amazing performance. Today we'll evaluate its bigger brother, the AX860i, which should perform equally as good and offer the same features with a little higher capacity.
Corsair's new AX860i and AX760i promise to blow away the competition with their performance and digital (DSP) control. The smaller of the two will be the test subject of this review, and we are eager to see how it will perform on our test bench.
Corsair's Neutron GTX SSD uses a new Link A Media SSD controller, which is a great addition to a market that's full of SandForce and Marvell drives. The SSD performs very well in our real-life testing, we also added a new MySQL Enterprise benchmark to the test suite.
Once again Corsair refreshes their Dominator line-up, and this time, they've got some big changes! Today I've got the Dominator Platinum modules for testing, and none other than the high-end 2666 MHz CL10 kit. Made for overclocking, while having a sleek and very sophisiticated look, the Dominator Platinum brings a lot to the table.
The Corsair AX1200i was launched today. Based on its specifications and features, it will easily carry on the legacy of its predecessor, the legendary AX1200 and Corsair has very high expectations, so do we.

Corsair has successfully entered the gaming arena with their Vengeance brand, be it memory or gaming gear. Their first case offering geared towards this market goes by the name Vengeance C70 and is available in three colors right out of the gate: black, white or military green. Did Corsair manage to throw a grenade into the fray or will it turn out to be nothing but a dud?
With every major case manufacturer trying to offer a silent case option, it was just a matter of time before Corsair did the same. Somewhat late to the party, the Obsidian 550D costs a bit more than the competition, but manages to offer an extremely well rounded package giving the user the flexibility between silence and viable compromise for performance.
Corsair is extending their case line, further pushing the price down to jump on the bandwagon with the 300R. We take the smallest brother of the Carbide series for a spin to see if it packs the punch of the 400 and 500R, or if other cases offer more performance for your money in this market segment.
Corsair's Performance Pro 256 GB SSD is based on Marvell's 88SS9174 controller which promises great performance at affordable price levels. In our testing we see the drive claim a leading performance spot thanks to some clever firmware tuning by Corsair.
Corsair's Professional Gold series consists of four PSUs with the most recent addition being the AX650, which as its name implies has 650W capacity.

The new Corsair TX M lineup is an evolutionary step forward from the Corsair TX V2 Series. It introduces modular connectors and a new fan grill design.

Corsair presents the love child of the Obsidian 800D and the Graphite 600T series. The result is certainly stunning, as the Obsidian 650D offers the best of both worlds, with excellent interior design and great exterior looks & functionality
