Corsair's One Pro is tiny yet powerful, runs cool and is expensive, still gets solid marks

Many of you probably find nothing more rewarding than building your own rig, but that doesn't mean there are no interesting pre-built systems for enthusiasts, quite the contrary. Here comes Corsair's first-ever PC powered by a Core i7-7700k, 16 GB of RAM, Z270 motherboard and depending on your budget, a GTX 1070/1080 and your choice of SSD. First reviews are in, and they're very positive.

Corsair Carbide Spec-Alpha Case Review: Solid looks, feature packed, great value

The ATX Mid-Tower has always been a favorite of PC builders. It can be transported with relative ease, while still managing to hold a respectable amount of very high-end hardware. The Spec-Alpha is Corsair's latest entry to the market and has gamers squarely in its sights. Priced at $80, this is a case that we very much expect to be a dominant force for a few reasons.

Corsair Carbide 400Q Review: Affordable, Minimalist Mid Tower

With its vast experience of case building, Corsair must have foreseen that the Carbide 600C we reviewed last month wouldn't appeal to everyone with its inverted ATX layout, so its counteroffer seems premeditated. The new Carbide 400 series takes a more traditional approach while keeping the clean lines and curved solid-steel exterior of the 600 series for a great minimalist look.
