One's a cool character, the other's a quiet performer.
Among the many products Corsair chose to unveil at Computex this year, one of the cooler (literally and figuratively) ones is its new Carbide Series Air 540, a high airflow mid-tower chassis with a wider form factor than most traditional cases. It's built that way to accommodate two "side-by-side" chambers and a Direct Airflow Path layout, which is Corsair's way of explaining a design meant to offer exceptional cooling at low noise levels.
Summer is just around the corner, which means hotter temperatures all around. Worried your PC might get a little too hot under the collar?

Remember how people were complaining that the year 2000 wasn't really the year 2000 and that 2001 was really the year 2000? Like that debacle, with us never publishing episode 150 of the No BS Podcast, you can similarly consider Episode 201 to be the real 200th episode if you feel inclined.
A private equity firm plans to invest $75 million into Corsair.
Everyone take a sigh of relief, Corsair isn't for sale, and therefore isn't at risk of ending up in the hands of a person or organization that doesn't share the same passion for PC peripherals as Corsair does. What about the rumor floating around that suggests Corsair may be sold to private equity firm Francisco Partners? Corsair tells Maximum PC the rumor is "inaccurate," though the company is looking to secure an investment.
Size matters, which is precisely why Corsair went small with its latest computer case.
It's not the size of your computer case that matters, but how you use it, right? Well, not exactly. If you're building a small form factor system and don't want to waste a ton of space, size is most certainly a factor, followed closely by features. Corsair hopes to impress on both fronts with its new Obsidian Series 350D case. Like its larger Obsidian brothers, the 350D is made from black, brushed aluminum and has an optional side window, but is intended for micro ATX and mini ITX motherboards, the two sizes it supports.
The Vengeance K70 is available in black or silver.
Can there ever be enough mechanical keyboards to choose from? As a big proponent of mechanical planks, my answer is 'Hell no!' there can't be. One of the newest models comes from Corsair, which just introduced its Vengeance K70 mechanical keyboard that it plans to demo at PAX East in Boston. The Vengeance K70 features Cherry MX Red key switches and individual backlighting for each key, Corsair says.
How much would you be willing to pay for an 8GB DDR3-3000MHz memory kit?
Give Corsair props for its new Vengeance Extreme 8GB dual-channel DDR3 memory kit consisting of two 4GB modules, which qualifies as the world's fastest rated PC memory at 3,000MHz. It also boasts latency settings of 12-14-14-36 at 1.65V, not bad for a kit of this caliber. Not fast enough? Corsair includes a Kingpin Cooling memory cooler for overclockers who want to use liquid nitrogen (LN2) to goose even faster frequencies out of these sticks. Let's talk price.
