  1. So yesterday i upgraded my motherboard from a lenovo prebuilt which had no XMP function to a Asus ROG Maximus xii extreme. This allowed me to upgrade my ram to Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro CMW32GX4M2Z3600C18 (2x16GB DDR4 @ 3600). While i do love the way they look it does bug me that there are two open slots. So here is my question: Can i use Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro CMW16GX4M2Z3600C18 (2x8GB DDR4 @ 3600) to fill in the empty slots? Or are they gonna interfere with eachother? I recently spent a lot of money on the upgrade en would prefer it if i could spend less. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hello i have a gaming prebuilt computer i bought and i wish to upgrade the power supply from 750 watts to something higher such as 850W, 950W, 1000W. the current PSU i have is the 750 Watt - CORSAIR RM750 80 PLUS Gold. However, i want to see if someone can provide me the specific product that will allow me to just swap out the power supply without having to do any re-wiring of the existing setup. (Basically, just remove the old PSU block and plug in the existing cables to the new one.) i struggle to understand the chart that corsair provides when wanting to do something like this so i am asking for someone to send me a link to or specify the specific power supply i need to purchase so i can just swap out the blocks. I would appreciate any responses!
  3. Hi all, We're pleased to announce that we'll have USB 3.1 Type-C upgrade kits available for the immensely popular Crystal Series 570X and Obsidian Series 750D very soon!

  4. Hallo, Ich habe ca. vor 3 Monaten mein RAM von 16 GB (Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3200MHz DDR4) auf 32 GB Aufgerüstet (Habe genau den selben gekauft). Also fing ich an ihn auszupacken und ein zu bauen, So weit alles gut nun hab ich seit dem das Problem das mein PC öfter besonders bei Spielen Abstürzt oder jedoch ein Bluescreen kommt auch bei normaler benutzung. Ich habe heute ein Windows Test gemacht wo heraus kam das dort ein Hardware fehler sei. Ich habe die Vermutung das ich noch etwas im BIOS verändern muss (Spannung etc.) Ich habe leider keine ahnung davon wie ich das einstellen muss den bisher läuft es über normales XMP sollte ich die BIOS Settings reseten? LG
  5. Wasn't sure where to post this, but I figured this was the best place for now. I was wondering if there would be a Version 2 of the Corsair 1000D. I currently own one and I can say that it's truly a great case, but there still some issues that have me asking me "why is this an issue on a $600 dollar case? 1) Why is the ITX button on the back of the case??? I understand not wanting to cause confusion, but a big power button and a small power (possibly labeled "ITX") on the front panel could have solved this issue. My case being up against the wall makes it a pain to reach it. 2) It would be nice if the Hard Drive Storage Bay was removable. However, more annoying is that the hard drive holders are made of the cheapest plastic you can find? I understand you don't see them, but its the fact that I'm paying $600 for a case. I expect quality from top to bottom. 3) My next issues is with the back cover used if you have a single PC system setup... why does it cover half of the vertical Graphics card ports for the second system?!? I understand a vertical mount is included for the main motherboard and aren't covered, but why wouldn't I just use the two vertical mounts all the way in front? However, I feel this is a simple part fix that just makes sense. Even if I don't have a second system, I'm going to want to display my graphics card as upfront as possible. 4) Finally, this is purely personal preference but it would be nice if the 2nd system could fit a Micro ATX and not just a Mini ITX. I feel the case is already huge...whats an extra 3 inches? But this would allow the 2nd system to be either a gaming or stream/recording set up. At this high end, most people are going to use an Elgato HD60 Pro 4K, or similar, that plugs into your PCIE Lanes, so you can mirror your game and capture it to the 2nd PC. You can use the the chips integrated GPU, but you would be pressed to be able to stream AND record. So having the second PCIE slot, available on the micro ATX would enable a graphics card and a capture card. Yes, I know you can get a USB capture card, but at this price point, you're gonna want the best of the best. And yes, I can use the main motherboard for steaming instead, but I would prefer to use a bigger motherboard to handle the CPU and GPU that I'm going to tax as hard as possible on ULTRA settings for 244hz 1080p or 144hz 4K, while the streaming/recording PC will be 1080p 60FPS stream and record. But most of these issues are not case breaking and the 1000d is still an awesome case. However, if these changes are made, mainly the first 2 and especially the 4th, I would buy the new version in a heart beat. I'm not sure what needs to be done to get the version 2 even considered, but I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks
  6. With the new RTX 3080 having a recommended PSU of 750w I am thinking of upgrading my current RM650x to a RM850x for the overclock headroom and future proofing. Would like to know if cables are compatible? I am unsure if having the "v2"/2018 refresh models matters either? From reading the chart the best I can gather is that all the "RMx" are fully interchangeable between different wattage models. The only time I would need to replace them is if I was swapping between lineups(example AX > RMx) For some more info I believe the model number of my current RM650x is CP-9020091-AU and the RM850x that I would be purchasing is CP-9020180-AU Thanks for any help!
  7. Hi everybody, A validated 64GB kit of Vengeance Series SODIMMs is now available for CORSAIR ONE i180 systems. Please note that the modules included are SODIMMs and will not work as an upgrade for first gen or current gen i140/i160 systems. https://www.corsair.com/ja/en/Categories/Products/Memory/Vengeance%C2%AE-Series-64GB-%284-x-16GB%29-DDR4-SODIMM-2666MHz-CL18-Memory-Kit-for-CORSAIR-ONE-PRO-i180/p/CMSX64GX4M4O2666C18 Complete upgrade instructions will be available shortly and this post will be updated when those resources become available. For now, here are some steps to help guide the upgrade process: Please back up your data before attempting upgrades. CORSAIR is not liable for any damages or voided warranties caused by incorrect upgrades. ACCESSING INTERNAL COMPONENTS OF CORSAIR ONE i180 Press the release button firmly and pull the top assembly straight up. Disconnect the fan cable and set the top assembly aside. With CORSAIR ONE facing towards you, use a screwdriver and remove the first of the two screws holding the left side panel in place. Next, remove the second screw while resting your hand against the side panel as it might pop open. With the side panel released, rotate the cooling hoses so that the panel can be laid parallel with the CORSAIR ONE unit. *** Be careful *Tools you will need - Phillips Head Screwdriver REMOVING DRAM To replace the DRAM start by flipping the latch on both sides of the DRAM slot. Carefully pull the memory up and out of each slot. REPLACING DRAM To properly insert the memory align the notch on the module with the notch in the memory slot. When inserting the first module carefully push down on both corners until it clicks into place. Repeat this process for the next module. Make sure to reconnect any cables you may have unplugged to access the memory and proceed to reinstall the side panel and close up your i180 system. If anybody has questions regarding the upgrade process. Please contact myself or our customer service team. -Corsair CJ
  8. I bought this early 2016. The radiator has formed a hotspot on the end near the tubing when doing simple loads even if my gpu is doing most of the work. It gets worse when my display turns off. It somehow heats up the liquid temp even more yet the fans are still spinning with the temps profile settings. Its not the cpu (less than year old delid 7820x with proper kryonaut application in cold room during winter). I don't have the original packaging and it would be my only cooler so I can't send it out to RMA with all my work in class needing to be done at a consistent rate. So I want to get a new one, so I started looking at the h115i pro and platinum since I don't wanna deal with 120mm fans and the original is slowly discontinuing. Both models are said to have different pumps so I wanted to ask which would technically be better via comparison to mine in terms of pump, noise and cooling with 4 corsair 140ML pro fans in push/pull in a phanteks enthoo luxe?
  9. Hi, I currently have this 2 x 8GB kit installed in my Asus Maximus Formula X: VENGEANCE® RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3600MHz C18 Memory Kit" Part number CMR16GX4M2C3600C18. It seems to have been discontinued already! For the RGB PRO version? As I would like a matching kit, would I be ok to purchase another identical kit for my motherboard? VENGEANCE® RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3600MHz C18 Memory Kit £234.99GBP This would make 4 x 8GB = 32GB RAM Any issues with this? Thanks
  10. I just upgraded to iCUE 3.4.95 from an older installation of CUE 1. I backed up the CUE 1 settings before the upgrade. Prior to the download, the relevant web page says: The thread at http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=176106 says the same thing. However, my settings were not migrated. I have seen elsewhere -- after I upgraded, of course -- that settings would only be migrated from CUE 2. As I'd much prefer not to create all my settings from scratch, is there a way to get my CUE 1 settings into iCUE?
  11. Our dev team is investigating the cause behind these crashes that some of our users have been experiencing with the most recent update to CUE. Here are some instructions for a workaround that should get most of you up and running again: Open up File Explorer and go to %APPDATA% Locate the Corsair folder and rename it to Corsair.OLD (or simply delete the folder) Start CUE and it'll recreate the folder If these instructions do not work in your case, please contact our support team at support.corsair.com, use the search feature of the forum to see other workarounds, OR create a thread and ask us/the community for help.
  12. Since the Dark Core RGB / SE are our first wireless gaming mice, the firmware upgrade process is a little different from what you'd typically expect from our wired gaming mice. We've put together a quick blog post with in-depth instructions for anyone who needs to upgrade the Dark Core's firmware. http://www.corsair.com/en-us/blog/2018/february/darkcore-firmware Upgrade instructions: Open your favorite web browser and go to http://www.corsair.com/downloads webpage. Select "Gaming Mice" from Product Category drop down menu. Find "DARK CORE RGB/SE" on the list of products and click download button on the right to download the latest version of Corsair Utility Software (CUE). The version that supports DARK CORE RGB and DARK CORE RGB SE is 2.22.83 or later. Install CUE by following on-screen instructions. A Windows restart may be required upon the completion of the install. Start CUE Plug-in the wireless USB transceiver (dongle) into the available USB port. NOTE: When using desktop PC, for best wireless performance it is highly recommended to plug the dongle into the available USB port on the front panel of the computer case. The icon representing DARK CORE RGB will appear on the top of the CUE window. Click on the icon, if a firmware update is available, the "Update" button will appear at the bottom of the CUE window. Connect mouse to your PC with USB charging/data cable included. Ensure the power toggle switch on the bottom of the mouse is in ON position, and the wireless connectivity toggle switch on the bottom of the mouse is in 2.4GHz position. Click " Update" button in the lower left hand side of the CUE window and the following dialog will appear "New firmware version is available. There is a new firmware version available for DARK CORE RGB. Do you want to update Firmware now?" Click the "Update" button at the top of the FIRMARE UPDATE box to continue, a “Settings” screen will appear, and the firmware update process will start automatically. After a few minutes, a firmware download will be completed, followed by the appearance of a "Warning" button at the bottom of the CUE window. Click the "Warning" button and follow the instructions to complete the firmware upgrade: Unplug the wireless USB dongle from the PC. Disconnect the USB cable from the PC and the mouse. Move the power toggle switch to OFF position on your mouse. Plug the wireless USB dongle back into the PC. Move the power toggle switch on the mouse back to the ON position. And that's it!
