Corsair One at it's end? Not a single update in 3 months!?


Recommended Posts

Ladies and Gents... I'm gonna say it...  They know the direction they've been going as a company just isn't working out... hence why I believe our I300, a200, and so on C1 systems aren't getting any love from Corsair that they and WE deserve!.  They even dropped the price of the C1's recently because only a few of us are buying them... again why they don't give a f*** about updating drivers, bios, iCue, etc for our systems.

I honestly think these might be the last models we'll see of the current C1 Models and something a little different next time around.

I have to say I am pleased with the Corsair One system, but I feel once purchased, there isn't a lot of love from Team Corsair towards the System or it's owners.  I feel there should be more attention geared to these systems then feels there is for the extremely high price we all paid for these things.  What are your thoughts? 

Will this be the last time your purchase a C1 system?  Has your experience been good or bad so far? How much longer till we get a BIOS/Chipset/C1 iCue Update???

We know there are BIOS improvements, we know iCue is flawed with fan curve settings and cooling the C1?  What else?

I have to agree with you. Either due to Corsair's financial situation or simply due to technical challenges (I cannot imagine how to put a 40-series GPU in the body of a C1), the current C1 might well be the last iteration.

In itself, it would not be that bad, if Corsair would keep maintaining the product properly (bios updates, sw updates, spare parts), but this seems to not ever have happened.

I have already moved past the idea of getting one. And I was really about to press the buy button a few weeks ago. But I cannot spend 5k € just to know I am get a perfectly running machine or not. And if not, there is little I will be able to do due to bad support and very difficult compatibility of parts. And even if I get a good machine, it might break a few months or a couple of years from now. And I am not spending this sort of money in a computer that is not sure to last several years.

So my chosen path is now to build my own small-form factor PC. Not the easiest path, but one that is also rewarding. Only drawback is that I cannot get a computer with the dimensions and performance of the C1. To get the performance I will need to get a bit bigger machine (but still small enough to be on the desk and looking good).

My wife thinks the C1 is Corsair’s 737 Max.

Without doubt the most disappointing (and expensive) piece of tech I have ever bought.

Replaced under warranty after 7 months, and has just started failing again at around the 14 month mark. We’ll see what happens next.

Have just completed my own first PC build using a Meshify 2 Compact case and mostly Asus internals. Much fun.

I feel Corsai has always relied on RMA for all teh warranties. While it works well for a fan, a contoller, a keyboard.. one can't just send a whole C1 back because an AIO failed. I guess it's a limit of the form factor, repairs are more involved than on a standard case, so there's little they can leave in the hands of customers.

The thermal limits is alsowhere it fails badly, having to cut down performance to have the thing barely work (and fail beause of dead pumps and SSDs overheating).

Time for a new SFF case with real cooling i guess

For people who have been having issues with it failing.

Did you use a custom fan speed to help with cooling or keep it on default?

Mine is about a month old now and haven’t had any issues with it yet. Hoping keeping the fan at 70% since I started using it will help prevent some of the issues people have mentioned.

Super hope CORSAIR starts to support the C1 more and push out some BIOS and iCUE updates soon.
