The acquisition of ORIGIN PC will see the custom PC maker integrate Corsair's iCUE software ecosystem into their family of PCs, offering up system-wide lighting synchronization and performance monitoring. Better yet, the new Corsair Hydro X Series custom cooling will be making their way into ORIGIN PC systems in the near future.

More details on the cooperation and integration of Corsair and ORIGIN PC products will be "announced in the near future" the company explained in its press release.

Andy Paul, founder and CEO of Corsair said: "With the gaming PC market continuing to expand as an increasing number of players make the jump from console to PC, we wanted to do more to reach customers in North America that prefer to buy, rather than build, their system. With ORIGIN PC's expertise in personalized custom gaming systems and CORSAIR's strength in performance PC hardware and the iCUE software ecosystem, we're excited to combine our efforts to create new world-class gaming experiences for PC gamers".

ORIGIN PC CEO Kevin Wasielewski said: "CORSAIR is a fantastic partner to help take ORIGIN PC forward, known for creating quality, high-performance products that fully align with ORIGIN PC. With a complete range of enthusiast PC products, ORIGIN PC and CORSAIR are uniquely placed to create amazing new systems that make the experience of owning a personalized custom gaming PC better than ever".

The nitty gritty details:

ORIGIN PC will remain a separate brand within CORSAIR, and will continue to operate from its Miami, FL offices. All existing ORIGIN PC warranties, purchases and support are unaffected and will continue to be provided by ORIGIN PC's world-class customer support team.

CORSAIR will continue to offer its own branded range of systems, including the VENGEANCE PC, CORSAIR ONE and CORSAIR ONE PRO.

Jones Day served as legal advisor to CORSAIR. Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP served as legal counsel to ORIGIN PC. Wedbush Securities Inc. served as exclusive financial advisor to ORIGIN PC on this transaction.
