This power supply could easily earn an 80Plus Gold certification, which leads us to believe that Corsair purposely avoided it to keep it from giving their AX series any internal competition." Legit Reviews, Professional Series HX1050 PSU Review — "Corsair's HX1050 addresses the users that can not afford the high price of the mighty AX1200 or simply don't need 1200W of power. The successor of the legendary HX1000W uses a completely different platform, which grants it almost Gold efficiency levels and ultra low ripple on all rails." /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-weekly-review-round-up-back-and-better-than-ever-edition-Content-3.pngKitGuru, Builder Series™ CX430 V2 PSU Review — "Not everyone can afford, or needs a 80 Plus Gold Certified 1000W power supply, and if you are in the market for a general, low cost power supply for a media center, office machine or entry level gaming rig then this should certainly be top of your shortlist. We are still quite shocked how good the test results are. This unit will last a long time, and Corsair clearly have the same feeling as they are confident in offering an extended three year warranty." LanOC, Special Edition White Graphite Series ™ 600T Mid-Tower Case Review — "Corsair hit a grand slam with their 800D, showing the entire market that there is still room for improvement in the case industry. With their first mid tower case they have taken those same features and packed them into a smaller chassis. This time to keep the price reasonable they used a lot more plastic. This would normally be a downside for most, but I think they did a great job with the design. The white color really makes this a looker." Techgage, Gaming Audio Series™ HS1 Review — " If you have a dedicated audio card, but don't want to bust the bank on premium headphones, these are an excellent choice. If you have an integrated audio card such as a Realtek HD solution, then go with the USB based HS1. In either case, Corsair's headsets are a fine choice and easily worth our Editor's Choice." blog_corsair-weekly-review-round-up-back-and-better-than-ever-edition-Content-8.php?image=10996Guru3D, Force Series™ 3 SSD Review — "The Force 3 series SSD is again a product that will offer tremendous performance for hopefully an acceptable amount of money. Comparing apples to apples, the Agility 3 and Force 3 are neck on neck with each other. Overall IOPS performance is where they rock alright." Hexus, Force Series™ 3 SSD Review Review — "Corsair's 120GB Force Series 3 is one of the quickest SSDs available for under £170. Armed with a cutting-edge SandForce SF-2281 processor, it delivers excellent real-world performance when hooked up to a SATA 6Gbps interface, while keeping pricing in line with its previous-generation predecessor, the Force F120."
Over the past 2 years, Corsair has greatly expanded its line of gaming products. So, it's only natural that we'd start attending and sponsoring more gaming events. We recently attended the Intel® Atlanta LANFest Summer LAN 2011. The organizer put us up in the front of the room in the middle of the stage — thanks Kevin! This is what everyone saw when they came into the room. After enough hours of gaming in a darkened dungeonesque room fueled by energy drinks, the LANFest banner began to look like this. We recently had a great time at another LAN, searching out those people most in need of a headset upgrade. By participating in the Facebook portion of our event, these lucky winners walked away with Gaming Audio Series™ HS1USB and HS1A headsets. It was a great upgrade for all of them. Late in the evening on Saturday night, I decided to have a bit of fun. I announced some scavenger hunt ideas via our Facebook event page for this event. Among the scavenger hunt ideas I put out, I asked for a can of root beer. This enterprising gentleman brought me a nice cold one and walked away with one of our giveaways. Another item was an actual swiss army knife. This fellow below showed up with one and got an Air Series™ A70 CPU cooler for his efforts. However, during the presentation, someone yelled out to him that I was not a Corsair rep but that I was in fact a zombie. He went "Left for Dead" on me. Luckily for me, he came to his senses when he realized he'd won the A70 and that I was not interested in eating his brains. We had some great fun with the midnight madness portion of the show where the event staff drew ticket numbers from a container and gave away massive amounts of goodies. It was awesome giving fresh products away to people that appreciated them and were going to use them to get their game on. Here's another happy HS1 winner. These two fellows each won a Vengeance™ DDR3 memory kit and they seemed very happy about it. We also gave away a set of Gaming Audio Series™ SP2500 and SP2200 speakers during the midnight madness giveaways. The majority of that giant pile of Corsair goodness, shown in the first picture above, was for our Corsair Case Build Off. The LANFest staff perused their audience and found the two people they felt were most in needeof a case upgrade. Oddly enough, we managed to select two participants, both of whom had never built their own computer. So we decided to let each have a coach/assistant of their choosing to help them along. It was a very close race and our winner, Christina Hill, won by mere seconds. She got quite a pile of goodies to help fill up that lovely new Special Edition White Graphite Series™ 600T mid-tower case. As with any good LAN, someone's case must be destroyed. This case, displaced by a new 600T, was reduced to scrap metal within seconds of it being emptied. My thanks go out to Intel and the Atlanta LANFest crew for putting on a great event as usual. I've seen this event grow over the past five plus years, and it's been really fun to have been involved. And, their charity efforts make it that much better. So, grab up your machine, a monitor, a network cable, and your favorite source of caffiene and go have a blast at a LAN near you. Mebbe we'll show up there too!
