COR­SAIR

PC & Tech Authority - - COMPUTEX FEATURE -

Ev­ery year Cor­sair has some new power sup­plies on show and this year we were shown a new bud­get friendly range of PSUs: the Vengeance se­ries. These are aimed at the main­stream mar­ket com­ing in 650w and 750w ca­pac­i­ties and an 80 plus sil­ver rat­ing. A sil­ver rat­ing might not grab the at­ten­tion much, but as bud­get of­fer­ings they will sell well. Al­ter­na­tively, if you’re into small form fac­tor sys­tems, the SF600 Plat­inum range will be right up your al­ley. These are fully mod­u­lar and ship with a SFX to ATX bracket for hous­ing in a larger case. Both se­ries are ex­pected im­mi­nently.

The Crys­tal 280X is lovely look­ing case, but its pos­i­tively mi­cro­scopic com­pared to the be­he­moth Ob­sid­ian 1000D. This mon­ster case can house two sys­tems and is mar­keted as be­ing per­fect for a game streamer. The front panel alone can sup­port two 480mm ra­di­a­tors or eight fans. Yes, just in the front panel alone. Need­less to say, the con­fig­u­ra­tion op­tions are end­less. This is one of the big­gest and bad­dest PC cases on the mar­ket.

The all new HS70 head­set made an ap­pear­ance. This is a supremely com­fort­able wire­less gam­ing head­set that fea­tures a de­tach­able mi­cro­phone, vir­tual 7.1 sur­round sound and up to 16 hours of bat­tery life, or it can be con­nected via USB for si­mul­ta­ne­ous use and recharg­ing. It is due to go on sale any day now at an at­trac­tive price and we hope to have a re­view in the not too dis­tant fu­ture.
