The Corsair One Is The Company's First Gaming PC

Corsair leaped into the gaming PC market with the Corsair One.

The company's first fully built system is available in a variety of models featuring Intel Core i7 7700 or 7700K processors; MSI GTX 1070, 1080, or 1080 Ti graphics cards; custom MSI Z270 Mini-ITX motherboards; and, naturally, Corsair-made storage and DDR4 memory in assorted configurations. The Corsair One also comes with Steam, Battle.net, Origin, GOG, and Uplay game launchers pre-installed on an otherwise unmodified 64-bit Windows 10 Home OS.

“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.”

To that end, Corsair said the Corsair One is ready for both 4K and VR. It has an integrated a custom cooling system that operates at 20 dBA at idle, and Corsair made the system from standard parts to let you swap out components whenever you want. (And, of course, the company probably hopes you'll do so with its own storage, cooling, memory, and the like.) The Corsair One is a base upon which you can build, not a system you'll have to completely replace in a few years.

The Corsair One is available in a variety of models. Two are exclusive to the company's online store: There's a version of the Corsair One Pro with a 960GB SSD instead of the 480GB SSD found in the more widely available Corsair One Pro, and there's the Corsair One Ti with that same 960GB SSD and a liquid cooled GTX 1080 Ti. The Corsair One and both versions of the Corsair One Pro should be available now, whereas the Corsair One Ti is said to be "coming soon."

    Interesting, although on the pricey side.

    I noticed a type-o though. The non-webstore has only a 480gb SSD; not a 960gb SSD according to the table (you mention it in the article though).

    I am curious if 400watts is enough to safely power the system as the wattage seems to be cutting it close for high end components such as the 1080/ti and 7700k. Overclocking definitely won't be an option imo.

    kudo's to Corsair for not putting a window on the side of the case

    Typo in table. 1080 Ti listed as having 1GB of RAM instead of 11.

    Thats what jumped out at me too. 400watts for that. Well what if you have 6 things plugged into USB ports, on top of your 1080ti, pump for water cooling, and 7700K?

    I guess thats why they chose no window, since they don't have the extra power for any RGB :)

    Have to agree that 400w PSU is mighty light for a 1080 let alone a 1080ti - I would want at least a modular 650W Gold or better. Also you could build your own Corsair "Ti" for less than $2k so the markup is typically very steep.

    That PSU is shockingly light. I do like the chassis and good attempt from Corsair, but I would worry about enough power. Jumping up to a 650 wouldn't cost much at all and would "future proof" it better (as Corsair claims on its own website).

    Yes, considering that just a 7700K + 1080 Ti can draw close to 350 W at full load (not even including other system components), 400W does seem quite light for the highest tier configuration. Even the middle two configurations would benefit from a larger PSU when you consider overclocking (which is clearly intended given the unlocked CPUs and liquid cooling).

    400W for the lowest tier configuration does seem OK.

    Just checked our the website and the cooling is suspect too - the top fan draws cold air from outside, thru the radiators and out the top. The air flow across the radiators will not be even losing a lot of the efficiency of the lower 2/3s , and sucking warm air in to the chassis is not really recommended. Sorry, design over functionality on this one - Hits key marketing points - overclocking, Ti, z270 etc. but fails properly design the chassis and cooling to work effectively.

    This is always the problem w/ all of these prebuilts... they always have a fly in the ointment (or two) and of course, price.
