You may have a monster graphics card, a sweet water-cooling setup, and multi-colored braided cables, but your rig's potential is wasted if they're crammed into a case that doesn't complement the hardware. What you need is a shiny new chassis, and we've gathered the best you can buy today.

I'm a huge fan of Corsair's mechanical gaming keyboards, but I'll admit I had never used a Corsair gaming mouse until the Glaive landed on my desk a couple of weeks ago. As a long-time user of Razer's DeathAdder, I decided to switch over the Glaive full-time to see if it could win me over for everyday and gaming use cases.
The Corsair One is the ultimate compact gaming PC. I've looked at several pre-built small form factor systems over the years, and none are as well built or as powerful as this Corsair system. If you have the money and you'd rather not build your own system, the One is genuinely the leading contender on the market.
We recently received mechanical gaming keyboards from Creative and Razer, the Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08 and BlackWidow Chroma V2. To flesh this out into a true three-way battle, we're comparing them against Corsair's K70 RGB Rapidfire, which we rated as the best for gaming in our Best Keyboards article last year. Let's see if this still holds true.
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 has upgraded its flagship Vengeance K95 mechanical keyboard with a new 'Platinum' version that purportedly takes performance to another level. Among its highlights are improved lighting and media controls over the K95 RGB, a detachable/reversible/magnetic wrist rest, strong aluminum frame, USB pass-through, and 1.2mm switch actuation.
A tough act to follow for the competition, even for the likes of Intel, Corsair announced the Force MP500 SSD shortly after the release of the dominating Samsung 960 Series. The Force MP500 is a high-speed NVMe SSD targeting power users available in a variety of capacities: 480GB, 240GB and even a piddly 120GBer.

Corsair is building upon its previous collaboration with Cherry to bring another exclusive line of switches to the mechanical keyboard market. Aimed squarely at gamers, the new MX Speed switches are not only quiet but also reduce travel distance to 1.2mm for a lighting fast 4ms actuation speed on the K65 RGB Rapidfire, K70 Rapidfire and K70 RGB Rapidfire being tested today.
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.
There isn't a one solution fits all product when it comes to CPU coolers. Folks with spacious full tower PCs might favor massive tower style coolers, but even if you have the space, some prefer to prioritize volume over temperatures... and if air cooling comes off as unadventurous, an all-in-one liquid cooler may be your best bet.
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.
