Source: Corsair PR release

Lots of new things being announced/shown off at PAX West.

1) SP120 RGB/HD120 RGB fans





Quote:
Combining excellent airflow, low-noise operation and stunning RGB lighting, the CORSAIR SP120 RGB and HD120 RGB range of fans allow your PC to run cool, but look hot. SP120 RGB fans utilize ultra-thin frosted fan blades and four hub-mounted RGB LEDs to offer stunning illumination, while HD120 RGB triples the lighting with 12 independent LEDs fitted into the fan’s frame. Whichever you choose, the result is bright, beautiful lighting in a wide range of colors and in a variety of unique lighting modes, all powered by a three-function controller that lets you choose the pattern, color or transition speed of lighting effects. SP120 RGB LED fans run at 1,400RPM via a 3-pin fan connector, while HD120 RGB fans offer greater customization thanks to 4-pin PWM control, speeds of 800-1,725RPM and vibration dampening rubber corners. CORSAIR RGB fans – Performance Illuminated.

2) Crystal Series 460X RGB Case



Product page
Quote:
The Crystal 460X RGB packs all the case performance and expandability you need into a beautifully modern and compact design with vivid illumination thanks to a trio of SP120 RGB LED fans. Put your build on display through beautiful two-panel tempered glass and keep it all running cool and quiet with Direct Airflow technology. Changing lighting effects and colors is done at the touch of a button with fully integrated front panel controls and with tool-free drive installation and three-point dust filter access, the CORSAIR Crystal 460X RGB is easy to build — and even easier to keep clean. You’ll spend less time on setup and maintenance, and more time admiring your PC – and who could blame you when it looks this good?

Love the look of the Crystal Series 460X RGB but want to build your own lighting experience? The Crystal 460X is also available with a single red LED fan and rear exhaust fan, allowing you to choose the cooling and lighting setup.

3) MM800 Polaris RGB Mouse Pad




Quote:
The CORSAIR MM800 RGB POLARIS adds a new level of LED immersion in addition to offering excellent mouse pad durability, tracking, and precision. Use the CORSAIR Utility Engine (CUE) to take control of 15 individual edge-mounted RGB zones for near-limitless lighting effects, powered by true PWM lighting to display the most accurate color reproduction. Synchronize each of the lighting zones with other Corsair RGB products to complete the ultimate gaming setup. An integrated USB pass-through port for your mouse frees up a valuable USB port on your system, while the hard low-friction micro-texture surface combines with ample surface area (285mm x 272mm x 5mm) to give you plenty of room for your digital playing field.

4) CUE 2 Gaming Software


Quote:
Take your CORSAIR RGB mouse, keyboard, headset or new MM800 RGB POLARIS mouse pad to the next level by harnessing the entire color spectrum with new CORSAIR Utility Engine (CUE) 2 gaming software. A ground-up redesign of the software optimized for high resolution and 4K displays, CUE 2 gives users unique personalization options for all their CORSAIR RGB peripherals. Create stunning lighting effects in seconds with easy to adjust lighting layers and dozens of popular presets, or design custom static, gradient, ripple, and wave patterns to light up your peripherals your way. CUE 2 makes it easier than ever to assign any programmable key with macro, text, timer, media, or profile switching controls, giving you the edge in games or applications. Able to fully control CORSAIR’s range of keyboards, mice, headsets and the new MM800 RGB POLARIS, CUE 2 ties all your peripherals together, synchronizing lighting, profiles and custom actions between everything in just a few clicks.

5) Carbide Air 740 Case




Quote:
An evolution of the best-selling CORSAIR Carbide Air 540, the Carbide Air 740 takes full advantage of its predecessor’s ground breaking dual-chamber design. Fully utilizing the space within the case, the Air 740 splits the system’s hardware between two compartments. The main chamber houses the core heat generating system components; the motherboard, CPU, graphics cards and memory, while the rear chamber mounts the 3.5in/2.5in drive bays and the PSU. This arrangement maximizes the airflow from the three pre-installed CORSAIR AF140L 140mm fans, delivering amazing unimpeded airflow through the main compartment. Drive cages and cables are neatly tucked away and don’t interfere with airflow, all without compromising on storage capacity.


The Air 740 takes the original Air 540’s dual-chamber concept even further with the removal of the 5.25in drive bays, allowing for a huge array of extreme system cooling options and up to eight 120mm cooling fans. The Air 740 can simultaneously mount a 240mm/280mm liquid cooling radiator in the roof, a 240mm/280mm radiator in the floor and a 240mm/280mm/360mm radiator in the front. What’s more, the Air 740’s enormous, hinged and fully removable side panel is perfect for showing off those amazing builds and setups, so your system can look as cool as it runs.


Part of the joy of owning a custom-built PC is building it yourself and with a host of installation-friendly features, the Air 740’s guarantees an easy setup experience for all users. The three 3.5” or four 2.5” tool-less drive trays in the rear chamber allows simple storage swapping, removable dust filters makes maintenance a breeze and the fully removable windowed side panel allows for fast installations, easy upgrades and convenient hardware accessibility.


With Air 740, CORSAIR started with the Air 540’s blueprint and elevated it to the next level, resulting in enhanced performance, improved design and phenomenal support for a wide-range of cooling options. Air 740 - Legendary performance redefined.


Specifications:

Dual-chamber Direct Airflow Path™ design: Utilizes dual-chambers to deliver cooler air to your CPU, graphics cards, motherboard, memory, and other PCI-E components without your drives or power supply getting in the way.
Industrial-style ergonomics and space-saving internal design: Offers massive internal volume by moving the power supply and drive bays into a separate chamber.
Includes three custom Air Series AF140L intake and exhaust fans: Based on the award-winning AF140, the included fans provide great airflow performance at lower noise levels than typical case fans.
Amazing cooling expansion room: For up to eight 120mm or seven 140mm fans, a 240mm/280mm top radiator, 240mm/280mm floor radiator, and 240/280/360mm front radiator – all at once.
8 x Expansion slots: Can house up to 4 graphics cards.
I/O Port: 2 x USB 3.0, headphone and mic.
Dimensions: 426mm x 340mm x 510mm

Both of those cases look like something Aerocool would make: overshiny, underperforming on both cooling and build quality. Perfect for a 12 year old that wants a case to brag about. From what I've seen of Corsair lately, I'm starting to think they're abusing the community love to sell them "meh products" at a premium price.

Also: the RGB hype needs to stop.

Seems like Corsair insist on taking (or maybe even keeping) the "most overpriced, mediocre fans".

The fans are pretty decent, I have some samples here for review. I was not expecting those prices though. The rotor material used on those fans is pretty unique, so I am sure that added to the cost but the controller at $20 is hard to justify.

The 460x seems quite inviting imo. However the review of the 750 stated it wasn't very good.

The second sentence in my review I am writing up is: "The Chinese zodiac might as well add RGB to the list as it seems 2016 is the year of the RGB." biggrin.gif

But fair play though, this is where the market is going and where the money is going as well. To each their own, and I will never say no to more choices.
