  1. I don't think they can keep this up forever, the market for people that are willing to pay this amount for a new computer is already small. There are only so many new people in this market that you can sell to before you run out and need return customers. As someone who mainly games on consoles since most of my friends are on it, I can tell you the number one reason why my console friends don't have a pc, it's because it is too expensive. The majority of console people will not be spending 5x as much as a PS5 for a Corsair One. In fact I already mentioned the Corsair One to some of my friends when looking at pc's and they mentioned it was too expensive and when they found out you can't upgrade it later on in a few years, they thought I was crazy and why I would not just build one myself like they are doing.
  2. Good Afternoon All, I wanted to address a something with Corsair One's that I think many people will come to the realization of and something that Corsair should look to changing their system design around. I bought the original Corsair one when it came out because it was a well put together machine in a clean box without flashy lights blazing from it. I still have it and love it. But the problem is I won't be buying another Corsair One because every time I want a upgrade my GPU, I would have to buy a whole new Corsair One. So I realized I have to go back to the DIY Option. I think many buyers will eventually realize this and move back to going DIY. I say this in hopes that someone at Corsair reads this and understands that this will cause them to not have any return buyers and for the eventual market share of people who would buy a Corsair One to go down. I understand that selling a whole new system makes more money for Corsair but I think you won't have many return customers. People will start start realizing that they cannot upgrade their GPU whenever they want unless they buy a whole new Corsair One. I have friends that are trying to move from Consoles to PC and while I thought about recommending the Corsair One, I knew it would be bad idea once they found out that you cannot upgrade it and that they would just have to buy a whole new pc to upgrade it and that is not in their budget. I decided to write this post because I had the same feeling for a while now and saw some others post similar feelings. So I figured, hey maybe I am not the only one that feels this way. Below is a comment with similar feelings: "If Corsair would ever provide "GPU upgrade kit" for i160, I would definitely buy one. Machine is itself is very solid. If Not, I guess I will probably switch back to DIY path, no point to buy full new machine, just to upgrade GPU." Link to Comment What is everyone's thoughts on this? Any other previous buyers have similar thoughts as this?
  3. Nikitam, that seems like a Linux video driver issue though I could be wrong. Have you tried booting Mint Live to see if it works?
  4. Is it possible for one of the moderators to rename the title to "Corsair One Tips and Troubleshooting" Since we cannot change titles.
  5. I would say install from usb: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 But I would wait to see what someone from Corsair tells you what to do so you don't void your warranty or something.
  6. Hello, I have the GTX1080 version. My computer has not shown any problems but should I also set mine to Gen 2 as well(for future reliability)?
  7. Speaking of which, wish MSI Live Update had a checkbox to not start at startup. Also maybe whoever made that program can update it to request that the service related to it in services.msc start when opening the program. As of now even when I set to manual it doesn't start with the program, it has to be left on automatic or started manually be the user.
  8. I believe Corsair should supply a HDMI cable with their Corsair ONE. This isn't to say that all the display issues are caused by having a faulty HDMI or Displayport cable and I don't want to seem like everyone's problems here are just because of that. But it is one factor out of many that could be causing it. Now I know what is going through Corsair employees minds right now: Why the hell should we supply the HDMI cable because the user is stupid and doesn't know when they have a bad one? Well the answer to that is with a $2000+ system you want to make sure people are having a good experience with it. And that $2000 experience can be ruined by a 7$ cable and thereby deem the system worthless and the user won't even know if the cause of it was their own HDMI cable. Sure some of the more knowledgeable ones might figure it out but for all the others that do not, they will just blame the stupid computer(like I did when I told my parents the computer they bought is crap but later found out it was bad HDMI cable). For Corsair who is trying to gain market share in the prebuilt gaming computers, some people just want to be able to plug it in and it work with the least amount of hassle. Why do you think Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony all provide HDMI cables with their system. Because they know that if a person uses his own faulty cable and the system doesn't work, the user is not going to know that it is because of the HDMI cable, all they will think this piece of crap Nintendo doesn't work and leave with a negative view of the whole experience. Is keeping the cost of the Corsair ONE down by $7 for a HDMI cable worth any of the potential negative experiences that people will have and return and remember forever and will then tell their friends and so on. Anyway that's my thoughts on this. I think it would be smart to increase the cost of the system by $7 and include a HDMI or Displayport cable to prevent one source of potential negative experiences. It is after all a prebuilt gaming system and all the gaming companies know it is smart to include a HDMI cord in case the user uses a faulty cable of their own but does not know it but just blames whatever system they just bought. (Xbox, PS4, Switch). I want to end this rant by again stating that this is not trying to trivialize the display issues that users on here are having by saying: “Oh just go buy a new HDMI cable it will solve all your problems”. I don’t have any numbers but that probably is not even the main cause of these display issues. No this just lowers the potential for new users coming to computer gaming from having bad experiences and blaming the system or Corsair and leaving with a bad impression of the company when the problem could have been the HDMI cord.
  9. Man the sound choppiness seems to be a common problem. Have you tried unplugging all the sound analog outputs from the computer and trying to turn it on. I know DPC violations most of the time are related to hardware driver issues but I could be wrong.
  10. I might be wrong but if I remember correctly the only thing you need is Corsair Link which you can get from the Corsair ONE downloads page.
  11. That sucks to hear. Guess I got lucky with my comp(knock on wood). Can't think of anything else that you could try. Maybe try another outlet to plug into(might be low power outlet) or try turning off Fast boot in bios if it is on?
  12. I had posted this in another thread but maybe turn off secure boot in the bios. Also don't reset the CMOS after turning off secure boot as it will just revert the settings. Settings->advanced->os management->secure boot. And turn it to disabled. Also another thing to try might be using only the hdmi port in front of the computer since it is native. I haven't run into any of these problems but then again I rarely turn off my computer.
  13. That error message seems to be related to having secure boot on from googling. Try turning secure boot off in the bios to see if it goes away. Settings->advanced->os management->secure boot. I don't have that error message so I can't test to see if it fixes the problem.
  14. I ran LatencyMon on my computer and the numbers were around 123-165. Not sure how you got 20,000 but that's crazy. Were you running any programs when you got this number? Also I noticed that your pagefault is 0 so the program doesn't seem to be running correctly. Have you tried running it as Administrator?
  15. Kochis this seems to be a common Windows problem. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/setting-the-account-picture-failed https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/6795-change-account-picture-windows-10-a.html?
