    For an Immaculate Build That Keeps its Cool - CORSAIR Launches Versatile 5000 Series of Mid-Tower Cases

    Honestly the 4000D Airflow is better than the 500R in every way. And I was the PM and designer of 500R. PSU cover, refined design, better cooling, easier cable routing, more AIO capability, and $70 cheaper than 500R. Only thing the 500R has on 4000D Airflow is more hard drive space for 3.5"...

    For an Immaculate Build That Keeps its Cool - CORSAIR Launches Versatile 5000 Series of Mid-Tower Cases

    On the D and D airflow, the top panel looks like the front panel. And is removable. On the 5000X it's a piece of glass, like on 570X.

    CORSAIR Launches 4000 Series of Mid-Tower Cases

    As the guy who designed those cases, first I'd like to say two things. 1) Thanks! I'm stoked people still remember the 500R and the C70. C70 was really ahead of its time. All metal construction, tool free everything, modular drive cages, up to ten 120mm fans.... dual 240mm rads. Love that thing...

    Corsair Readies Hydro H100i Pro Cooler with Zero RPM Fan Mode

    Hey guys, just so everyone knows, the PRO series coolers have a few improvements over last gen, beyond just "fans that turn off". Here's the list: * Improved coldplate and pump that's significantly quieter. * Magnetic Levitation fans (ML) that have significantly reduced noise levels at...

    Corsair Launches Obsidian 1000D Super-Tower PC Case

    That's something we're looking at doing on the website - custom bundles, you pick which fan (ML series? LL series? HD series? 120mm? 140mm?) you want....but that's a ways off for a couple reasons. We pulled the fans out of 1000D because feedback from the guys buying cases in this price range...

    Corsair Launches Obsidian 1000D Super-Tower PC Case

    There's a huge gap between the front fans and glass. s well as It's pretty significant and doesn't affect intake. Also - for all you RGB haters you'll be pleased to know the fans are not included, so you can install whatever fans you want. There is, however, an included Commander Pro so you...

    Corsair Launches Three New Crystal and Carbide Series Cases

    Well, the code name for the 570X was "RADEON 9700 PRO" but we felt that was a bit too obvious.

    Raidmax Readies the SIGMA Mid-tower Chassis

    Take a look at the new 460X - it's a 400C with tempered glass front and side. Also, you may be quite happy for Q4. We have a few more things to talk about.

    Raidmax Readies the SIGMA Mid-tower Chassis

    While the SPEC-ALPHA isn't my personal taste, either, I designed it with the help of the customers who helped select different concepts. And now it's one of our best sellers. Sidenote - at the same time I designed that, I designed the 400C which is polar opposite on the "extreme" scale. I...

    CORSAIR Launches New ML Series Fans With Magnetic Levitation Bearings

    As long as the fans are on a PWM controller the magnetic bearing works 100%. The PWM range is 400-2,400 RPM for the 120mm version and 400-2,000 RPM for the 140mm version. If you plug them into a voltage controller and drop the voltage, the magnetic bearing loses efficiency and the fan may get...

    EVGA Introduces New and Innovative Products at CES 2016

    I think that case is very interesting, it'd be nice to see a picture of it instead of a render though. Looks like it could be a long time before it's actually released. From my experience - that design has a TON of parts in it and as such the tooling and cost will be quite high. Depending on...

    Corsair Unveils its First Inverted-ATX Cases, the Carbide 600Q and Carbide 600C

    Okay I see where I misunderstood what you were saying. When I said "everybody is aware of this" I meant guys who sell aftermarket PSUs to system builders and gamers. Not HP/Dell/etc. Those guys are buying $6-$10 PSUs in bulk that are designed to exactly match the system they're building, and a...

    Corsair Unveils its First Inverted-ATX Cases, the Carbide 600Q and Carbide 600C

    You can access the dust filter from the sides or front too, we just showed the photo from the rear. It's magnetic so just reach under the case and pop it off, remove it from any side you want.

    Corsair Unveils its First Inverted-ATX Cases, the Carbide 600Q and Carbide 600C

    They already are. 50C temp rating is our standard for RMi/RMx, HX, AX, and all TX series PSUs. EVGA, Seasonic, Superflower - most of their mid to high end products are already rated at 50C. The lower end stuff is rated at 40C or so, which is still cooler than the ambient temp in this case for...

    The intake fan that brings in fresh air is like 4" away from the GPU.

    Corsair Unveils its First Inverted-ATX Cases, the Carbide 600Q and Carbide 600C

    Correct. Because where cost counts, every penny matters. If HP or somebody is building a $299 email/web browsing box, then why add an exhaust fan when you can just use the PSU fan as an exhaust fan and kill two birds with one stone? That has long since been ignored by most people in the...

    Corsair Unveils its First Inverted-ATX Cases, the Carbide 600Q and Carbide 600C

    Because in our tests, the only time bottom intake made a performance difference is when you were using radial style GPU fans (Asus Direct CU style). The reference blower-style exhausts enough air by itself that bottom exhaust and front intake works just a bit better, even in SLI.

    Corsair Unveils its First Inverted-ATX Cases, the Carbide 600Q and Carbide 600C

    There's no informing anybody - everyone knows. The Antec 900 was one of the first cases to move the PSU to the bottom, but it wasn't for better PSU cooling - it was so they could put a 200mm fan over the CPU. Ever since then, people have used the top as a better location for fan mounting and...

    What do you mean? Are you asking why the case was photographed with the fans on bottom exhausting?
