CORSAIR Acquires ORIGIN PC

CORSAIR, a world leader in high-performance gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, is pleased to announce that it has acquired custom gaming PC leader ORIGIN PC. With a decade of experience in creating high-performance PCs, ORIGIN PC specializes in delivering hand-built, personalized PCs that deliver the best gaming experience possible, while maintaining world-class customer service and support from day one.

ORIGIN PC offers a wide range of high-performance configurable PCs, ranging from gaming PCs and powerful workstations to gaming laptops, building systems focused on customization, service, gaming, and technology to deliver a complete gaming experience. ORIGIN PC systems have won hundreds of media awards and industry accolades and are trusted by customers across North America to provide a truly personalized custom gaming PC experience.
"With the gaming PC market continuing to expand as an increasing number of players make the jump from console to PC, we wanted to do more to reach customers in North America that prefer to buy, rather than build, their system," said Andy Paul, Founder and CEO of CORSAIR. "With ORIGIN PC's expertise in personalized custom gaming systems and CORSAIR's strength in performance PC hardware and the iCUE software ecosystem, we're excited to combine our efforts to create new world-class gaming experiences for PC gamers."

"CORSAIR is a fantastic partner to help take ORIGIN PC forward, known for creating quality, high-performance products that fully align with ORIGIN PC," said Kevin Wasielewski, CEO of ORIGIN PC. "With a complete range of enthusiast PC products, ORIGIN PC and CORSAIR are uniquely placed to create amazing new systems that make the experience of owning a personalized custom gaming PC better than ever."

Combining the expansive CORSAIR product portfolio with ORIGIN PC's system building expertise, in-depth configuration options and substantial work force will further expand both company's capabilities. Integrating the CORSAIR iCUE software ecosystem into ORIGIN PC's systems will offer gamers system-wide lighting synchronization and performance monitoring, while the recently announced range of CORSAIR Hydro X Series custom cooling will soon be found in select ORIGIN PC systems. Further co-operation and integration of CORSAIR and ORIGIN products will be announced in the near future.

ORIGIN PC will remain a separate brand within CORSAIR, and will continue to operate from its Miami, FL offices. All existing ORIGIN PC warranties, purchases and support are unaffected and will continue to be provided by ORIGIN PC's world-class customer support team.

CORSAIR will continue to offer its own branded range of systems, including the VENGEANCE PC, CORSAIR ONE and CORSAIR ONE PRO.

The sentence you formed is the only thing here running like hot crap.

Did you even read, where did it say the company was doing bad? maybe the first line where it states "they are the world leader" :kookoo:

Companies don't just get bought because they are doing bad. again read and you would have read that they are merely joining their family.

So much negativity!

This would be a very good for everyone.
Origin already uses Corsair ram and SSD.
Big one is Corsair own WC line, add that to Origin and we should be better costs overall.
