For gamers that wear large sized gloves there are many rodents that don't nestle comfortably in their palms, especially the travel sized ones.  For them there is a new mouse on the market, the Corsair IronClaw which is large enough for comfort (130x80x45mm) but not to a point which will make it uncomfortable for others.  The PMW3391 sensor matches the quality you expect from a gaming mouse and Corsair's iCUE software lets you program the buttons and RGBs as you would expect as well as incorporating hardware monitoring graphs.

Take a look over at The Guru of 3D.

"Oh wait, there's one more. Our third mouse review this week is the IronClaw RGB mouse. Designed with a comfortable fit and some pretty iCUE related features this critter might be just what the doctor ordered at 59 bucks."

Same, same; but different ... Corsair's SFX SF600W PSU

Lee took a look at Corsair's fun sized SF600 just before the holidays, giving it high marks across the board.  You may have missed it while you were out shopping, or forgotten so this review over at [H]ard|OCP could be worth your time.  The PSU passed all their tests as well, producing almost the same results as their tests of  the previous generation of SF600.  You do have to pay a bit extra for those fancy individually sleeved wires, so if that is not necessary for your build you can check out some of the less expensive options of similar quality at the end of the review.

"Corsair is no stranger to the enthusiast computer power supply market, and most of its PSUs are built for ATX form factor cases. Corsair does however dabble a bit in the SFX end of the spectrum which tries to shoehorn as much power as possible into the smallest space possible. Let's see what the new SF600 is all about."

Introduction and Features

Introduction

2-Banner.jpg

Corsair recently introduced two new SFX small form-factor power supplies into their already formidable lineup of PC power supplies. The SF Platinum Series includes two SFX models, the SF450 (450W) and SF600 (600W). They are very similar to the two current Gold Series SFX units currently on the market but thanks to some tweaks in the circuit design and manufacturing process the Platinum Series SF450 and SF600 now deliver Platinum level efficiency.

Both new power supplies feature fully modular cables with individually sleeved wires. The SF450 and SF600 feature a Zero RPM Fan Mode for silent operation at low to medium power and come backed by a 7-year warranty. And an SFX-to-ATX mounting bracket is included in the box. We will be taking a detailed look at the Corsair SF600 Platinum power supply in this review.

Keeping a low profile with Corsair's K70 MK.2

It takes a lot to stand out in the keyboard market today, as everybody have released numerous models with mechanical switches and RGBs behind them. Someone at Corsair may have been listening to War as they have come up with a low profile version of their K70 keyboard.  These switches reduce your total keystroke from 4 mm to 3.2 mm as well as a shorter actuation travel, the length depending on the specific flavour of switch you purchase.  The model that The Tech Report reviewed was a Rapidfire, which sports LP Speed switches which require a mere 1 mm to actuate. 

If you are looking for the minimum of travel when typing consider this new K70.

"Corsair and Cherry have teamed up for another mechanical key switch debut, and this time, the star of the show is the MX Low Profile Speed switch on board the K70 MK.2 Low Profile Rapidfire keyboard. We got these slim switches under our fingers to see whether they're a shortcut to gaming and typing bliss."

Corsair's H100i RGB Platinum; pump up the RGBs

Subject: Cases and Cooling | November 6, 2018 - 06:04 PM |
Tagged: corsair, H100i RGB Platinum, watercooler

Corsair have updated their all in one watercooler lineup with two new models, the 240mm version of which is the H110i RGB Platinum which The Tech Report recently reviewed.  As with all components recently, this release focuses on adding RGBs to an existing product lineup.  In order to control the lighting, you need to squeeze quite a bit of cabling into a small area, so some may want to skip that setup even though they paid extra for those blinkenlichten.  The pump and fans are quiet compared to previous models, which might tempt those who dislike the noise created by Corsair's Pro line, so check it out if you are looking for improved lights or sound.

"Corsair's H100i RGB Platinum closed-loop liquid cooler is the company's first with addressable RGB LEDs on its pump head and in its fan hubs. We put this cooler to the test to see whether its performance matches its striking looks."

Corsair's Crystal cave, aka the 280X

Tagged: corsair, Crystal 280X RGB

The Corsair Crystal 280X RGB is indeed large enough to fit an R9 280X, and AMD isn't really using that name anymore so why not just poach it?  As with the Air 240, the case has two compartments, one for your motherboard and add in cards, with a separate one behind to hold your PSU as well as fans or even a radiator.  RGB addicts will love the pair of LL120 RGB fans and Lighting Node Pro controller.  Take a peek at this new case over at TechPowerUp.

casenew.jpg

"The Corsair Crystal 280X RGB takes the idea behind the Air 240, and the classy looks and material mix of the Crystal family, and marries them in an even more compact, powerful, and beautiful enclosure that includes not only better liquid-cooling compatibility but also features Corsair's retail-grade LL120 RGB fans and the Lightning Pro Node."

No, the naming of the Corsair RMx Series 750W does not imply RMA

Subject: Cases and Cooling | August 23, 2018 - 03:14 PM |
Tagged: modular psu, corsair, RMx Series, 750w

The RMx naming separates this PSU from the RMi lineup which includes Corsair's Link which reduces the price somewhat and the 850W model was good enough to receive a Gold Award from Lee.  [H]ard|OCP tested out the 750W member of this family, enough power for many builds, to see if it matched the quality of its big brother.  Their tests showed a solid PSU that met all the requirements for a pass and a Silver; though it does have a small problem. Last years Corsair TX750M is every bit as good and at a lower price with only one possible drawback, the ATX power connector is not modular.  This will not matter as all motherboards like to have their power in order to POST.  Check out the full review here.

"Corsair has been bumping up its street cred lately with PSU designs that are up to HardOCP standards. Today we have its latest 2018 version of the RM series PSU rated at 750 watts. It features Gold efficiency, a fully modular design, has a 10 year warranty, and carries with it a fully modular design, all for the price of $110."
