FREMONT, CA – March 23rd 2017 - CORSAIR®, a world leader in enthusiast memory, high-performance gaming hardware and PC components, today proudly announced its first fully built gaming PC, the CORSAIR ONE. Designed to deliver premium PC performance in an incredibly small package, CORSAIR ONE brings together decades of CORSAIR memory, cooling, power supply, and chassis engineering with the latest in cutting edge PC hardware to create a PC unlike anything else available.

Powered by the latest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors, the Intel® 200 Series chipset and an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 or GTX 1070 graphics card, CORSAIR ONE wields the performance of a top-end full-size PC, contained in a system that’s small enough to fit into any desktop, living room or VR setup. Quiet, compact, and with the performance of full-size desktop PC, this is the ONE.

“With over 22 years powering the world’s best PCs, we knew now was the right time to bring together all our knowledge to create a truly exceptional PC” said Andy Paul, CORSAIR CEO and founder. “CORSAIR ONE is the result – unbelievably compact, quiet and with incredible performance, it changes what people will expect from a high-end PC.”

From its milled aluminum exterior to subtle blue integrated lighting, CORSAIR ONE changes what PC enthusiasts should expect from a pre-built gaming PC. Every part has been specifically designed and selected to fit the high-end hardware and cooling of a full-size desktop PC into an incredibly compact system that’s only 12L in volume. Measuring just 200mm x 176mm x 380mm (7.87in x 6.92in x 14.96in), CORSAIR ONE fits perfectly onto a gaming desktop, performance workstation or Premium VR showcase, delivering high-end performance with a minimal footprint.

Thanks to an integrated liquid-cooling system, CORSAIR ONE is designed to balance power with extremely quiet operation, even at full load. A revolutionary assisted convection cooling system draws air through a pair of passive 240mm radiators*, combining liquid-cooling with a CORSAIR magnetic levitation ML-140 fan to exhaust heat through the case’s milled aluminum top. The result is lower temperatures with minimal noise, allowing both the CPU and GPU to clock higher, for longer.

While it’s compact and quiet, CORSAIR ONE boasts the very latest in premium PC hardware, from leaders in PC hardware. “We’re pleased to see CORSAIR extend their core capability from a high-performance enthusiast PC components supplier to an enthusiast-class system OEM”, said Joel Christensen, General Manager for Intel’s Client Channel Business. “The CORSAIR ONE is an example of how Intel’s latest 7th Generation Core Processors fosters PC platform innovation. The CORSAIR ONE blends a compact form factor and high performance into an elegant design that pushes the boundaries for gaming form factors.”

CORSAIR ONE comes ready to deliver fantastic PC, 3D and VR experiences thanks to a liquid-cooled Intel Core i7 7700 CPU and air-cooled GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, while CORSAIR ONE PRO takes performance to the next level with dual liquid-cooling for both an Intel Core i7 7700K and GeForce GTX 1080 8GB. The rest of CORSAIR ONE’s internals are a list of must-haves for a modern PC: fast SSD storage in either 240GB, 480GB or 960GB options, roomy 1TB or 2TB HDD, an 80PLUS Gold SFX PSU, Z270 motherboard with USB 3.1 type C and 16GB of trusted CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX 2,400MHz DDR4. What’s more, CORSAIR ONE uses only industry standard sized components, so when it’s time to upgrade through CORSAIR’s network of certified upgrade centers, it’s easy to keep your CORSAIR ONE cutting edge.

CORSAIR has been building the parts to make the world’s best gaming PC for over two decades, so when it came to building its first full system, it was clear that it would come loaded with not just all the essentials every gamer needs, but also none of the bloat they don’t. Pre-installed games launchers from Steam, Origin, Good Old Games, Battle.net and Uplay make getting your games installed quick and easy, all within a clean 64-bit Windows 10 Home operating system, and with no sponsored browsers, applications or anti-virus. “We’re delighted to welcome CORSAIR‘s fully-built CORSAIR ONE to the Windows 10 family of devices,” said Gary Fowle, vice president of U.S. OEM, Microsoft Corp. “The liquid-cooled Windows 10 desktop is VR-ready and great for Xbox Play Anywhere, and its small form factor creates a number of exciting opportunities for casual or hardcore gamers.”

Featuring the best from CORSAIR, INTEL, NVIDIA, Microsoft and more, CORSAIR ONE is the desktop PC that’s been more than 20 years in the making. Whether you use your PC to battle, explore or create, this is the ONE.

The number One Bulldog. :-)

It would be nice if not for the extra hidden fans (PSU and GPU).

This looks really damn cool, I hope you guys get to test one out.

The inevitable step to making (or having your brand on) your own RAM, cooling, SSD, power supply, case. Quite a neat looking unit actually. How does the $1800-2600 price range compare to other manufactuers/customer builders?

The cooling on this looks iffy. Are those rads blocked by the card & board?

Seem like the only fan pushing air internally is on the top, if the rads are indeed blocked it'll suffer cooling issues under load.

Definitely want to see a proper take down, analysis, and stats.

If they handled the cooling right, this is a pretty slick design.

Based on another sites actual review the thermals are just fine (handled full on benchmarks for hours with no throttling). It does look like Corsair spent a lot of time sorting it all out.

My only concern is the fact that you can't open up the case (sides) without voiding your 2 year warranty. Which means you can't properly clean out the radiator fins or any other internals.

It is upside down! Would like to see cable management.

Cable management is kind of irrelevant. They don't let you open the unit for even a RAM upgrade without voiding the warranty.

"Featuring the best from CORSAIR, INTEL, NVIDIA, Microsoft and more"

The best price gouging from Intel and Nvidia, and the best Spyware/Bloatware from M$ and with UWP you will all become UWP(Universal Windows Peasants).

whoops, replied to the wrong comment, was meant for the guy who said he wanted to see cable management.

I would like to see the cable management.

How would this be in comparison to the Mac Pro.

March 28, 2017 | 01:01 AM - Posted by Oskars (not verified)

Max GPU would be much faster than Mac Pro (two radeon HD 7970 cards), and cpu might be slover, but only if a given program can utilize 12 ivy bridge cores, and even then, not by much due to throttling (if the Corsair is overclocked).
The Mac Pro was released in 2013, so this is normal.

March 30, 2017 | 03:07 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

Mac Pro is much better thermal design and it does not need water-cooling.
