Are you guys making SP 140 fans that are not LEDs to go with the new H110i GTX?

piemancoder 1 point 21 months ago

THANK YOU so much for asking this!

TechyinAZ 13 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

I'm glad they mentioned they're making a new series of fans to replace the older 120 and 140 fans. Now I know I can wait for something better. :)

piemancoder 1 point 21 months ago

I can't wait, I've been dreaming of a Corsair "Noctua Killer"

pegotico 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

thats never going to happen.... it hasn't even happen with their 120mm fans

190n 2 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Are all those deleted comments along the lines of "why are your PSUs so ****ty"? lol

piemancoder 3 points 21 months ago

Unfortunately, people don't understand that Corsair actually has some dang good PSU's.

dagreendooky 2 points 21 months ago

It's more like the PCPP community has blasted Corsair PSU's so hard and so many have jumped on that bandwagon that many folks will immediately just look past the better quality Corsair PSUs to other brands.

jonnyguru 3 points 21 months ago

Unfortunately, despite many competent reviews, people know so little about PSUs. It's the "magic black box that puts out power". I see so many people spend $500 on a GPU and then $100 on a PSU. And then people compare apples to oranges by looking at reviews for higher end PSUs and then thinking that level of quality trickles down to lower end units in the line up.

piemancoder 3 points 21 months ago

I think 500 gpu and 100 psu would make sense, say a 980 with a 750w G2

pegotico 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

exactly!! +1

dagreendooky 1 point 21 months ago

Woah! It's jonnyguru! I bought my EVGA 850GS a while back because of your review! =)

Ironically, I also bought an EVGA 550G2 recently without a second thought and without researching because I thought that EVGA quality trickles down, too. Fortunately, in this case, it did. But your point is very valid.

piemancoder 1 point 21 months ago

Wait a minute I just realized who posted this. Your site is the only site I actually trust for power supply reviews. Thank you. For causing mess fires in this world.

vagabond139 5 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Yup, Corsair actually doesn't have any crapp psu's that I know of that they are currently selling, sure some are mediocre like the CX series and most of the time they are't priced super competitively but that doesn't make it bad. I was actually thinking about picking up a RMi a while ago.

piemancoder 2 points 21 months ago

Are you guys going to make water cooled AMD cards?

Will you guys ever work with Caselabs on anything?

rapitrone 2 points 21 months ago

Also you should sell NVIDIA graphics cards.

piemancoder 1 point 21 months ago

I have a lot of questions, should I post them in desperate comments or just one single comment?

philip staff submitter 10 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

All in one is probably better - we'll collect them all and organize them before the stream.

piemancoder 1 point 21 months ago

Ok, sounds good!

Al_Da_Best 1 point 21 months ago

What RAM do I want? More specifically, if I'm building a Skylake build I of course want DDR4, but I really have no idea on latency vs speed these days. Thanks

piemancoder 0 points 21 months ago

Latency and speed doesn't matter for gaming or practical use, only for heavy video editing.

190n 2 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

I just realized...I might actually be able to watch this live!!!

awsc 1 point 21 months ago

Q: Does Corsair have any plans to introduce a true successor to the 550D in the quiet case category?

mohnoo97 1 point 21 months ago

Will you be making any silent micro-atx cases in the future?

TheNoob 1 point 21 months ago

Q: Will there be similar cases to the Corsair Spec 2/3?

190n 2 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

What do you consider to be your main business? I would consider it to be cooling equipment, but you guys might have some different ideas.

190n 2 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

T- 2 minutes until launch!

NoWay 1 point 21 months ago

Would love to hear thoughts about the importance of CPU in gaming builds, especially on going forward where multi-core will be more important.

190n 2 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

What's your logo supposed to be? To me it looks like the sails on a ship, but is it something else?

jonnyguru 1 point 21 months ago

It's sails from a ship.

rapitrone 1 point 21 months ago

When are you going to start making motherboards?

piemancoder 1 point 21 months ago

Are you guys going to make a 60% keyboards, and how did corsair get their name? (sorry Philip for multiple posts, forgot to add these)

piemancoder 1 point 21 months ago

I had to do something during the video, does anyone know if they answered my question?

Ichisake 1 point 21 months ago

Please, keep doing peripherals with aluminium, steel or whatever and stay away from plastic.

ProXxyDE 1 point 21 months ago

Could be a stupid question but, what is the difference between AX & RM etc at PSU? Is it the Size? Greets from germany

jonnyguru 1 point 21 months ago

The differences are laid out pretty well here: http://www.corsair.com/en-us/power-supply-units

lafevers 1 point 20 months ago

Noooo I missed out!! I could of asked for recommendations on my idea of building an all Corsair PC.

Which PSUs are more expensive and where? It's up to the retailer to set pricing. If they feel they can sell Corsair for more, that's up to them.

But take 80 Plus Gold 750W for example. RM750x is same as Seasonic KM3 (and the Corsair is arguably better and certainly quieter). RM750i is $10 more, but has full Link monitoring and control capability. XFX's TS is only $99, but it's not modular and is based on a 5 year old design. EVGA's G2 is actually $5 more than the Corsair RM.

Compare apples to apples when saying things like "why are Corsair PSUs more expensive".

[comment deleted]
jonnyguru 2 points 21 months ago

That's a complete apples to oranges comparison. The AXi PSU is a fully digital platform from a tier one manufacturer (Flextronics). The Seasonic is... well.. .Seasonic.

tpot11 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

+1 tier one manufacturer (Flex)

[comment deleted]
jonnyguru 1 point 21 months ago

Well... TR2s are bottom of the line Thermaltake. So that goes without saying. That's like saying "My Subaru is so much better than that Yugo I had before."

piemancoder 1 point 21 months ago

By how much? Also, keep in mind the AX 850i has Corsair Link.

[comment deleted]
jonnyguru 1 point 21 months ago

If "better" doesn't mean better voltage regulation, better ripple suppression, Corsair Link integration, etc... then you're correct.

But last I checked, ALL of those things matter when comparing one PSU to another. For the record: The AX860 is the same PSU as the SS P-860. And yet the AX860i is more expensive than the AX860. Hmm....

Try reading some PSU reviews so you can figure out that there's more to PSUs than wattage and 80 Plus rating.

PureBlackFire 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

well, this is incorrect. the AX860i is one of the best power supplies out. it's the better of these two for sure.
