Here’s what Corsair showed off at Computex 2018

It wouldn’t be Computex without the king of RGB.

The King of RGB was out in full force at Computex 2018, with a host of hardware, peripherals, and some new software. iCUE got a makeover, so you can control all your RGB Corsair gear easier, and some new products got unveiled.


The new range of HS headsets got announced a few days before Computex, with two wired headsets and a range-topping wireless model. All three headsets have removable mics, and the two more expensive ones have virtual surround, thanks to iCUE.

The new Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 come in speeds from 2666Mhz to 4600Mhz with hand-screened IC on the upper end of the range. That’s enhanced by the new RGB lightbar and the upgraded iCUE software which offers the user a huge degree of customizability.

The Obsidian range received an upgrade, with the 500D RGB SE. Now the front panel is a smoked piece of tempered glass and it comes with the award-winning LL120 RGB fans for maximum RGB effect. The case has an included Corsair Commander Pro Digital RGB and Fan controller and is again all controlled through the iCUE software.

Corsair also had the new Crystal Series 280X RGB and Crystal Series 280X MATX enthusiast PC cases on display, for the small-form-factor enthusiasts. These both have tempered glass panels, RGB fans, and a two-chamber construction to keep the PSU and other hardware separate to control temperatures.

No RGB here, but a couple of new PSUs to add to Corsair’s already large range. First up is the SF600 80 Plus Platinum rated Small-form-factor fully-modular PSU. With up to 94% efficiency this small powerhouse is packed with all the stability you’d expect to find. A 7-year warranty backs up the performance.

The 80 Plus Silver rated Vengeance 750M is for those system builders who want to move up from entry-level units without the price tag of higher rated PSUs. It’s semi-modular, has a switch to change between single-rail and multi-rail depending on your needs and has a 5-year warranty.
