The day before CES 2017 kicked off, Corsair held an NDA event where they unveiled their "category-defining" Corsair ONE gaming PC. It's not only Corsair's first foray into fully built gaming PCs, but the PC also carries one of the strongest size-to-performance ratios.
Earlier this month, Corsair teased some photos of the PC, but without actual sizes, it was hard for the general public to see why the device was special. Many thought that the PC was normal sized, but it's actually extremely small. Every inch is packed, so packed that Corsair sent out warning emails about those of us (like me) who want to take it apart.
Every cubic millimeter of space has been optimized, and the kicker is that the entire PC is cooled by one exhaust fan and a blower for the GPU's VRM. The system takes advantage of convection cooling and optimized vents, so that neither the CPU nor the GPU, which are both water cooled, actually have fans directly attached to their radiators. The result is quite impressive, a fully functional gaming PC that is not only small but also stylish.
The Corsair ONE comes in three varieties, the Corsair ONE, the Corsair ONE Pro, and the Corsair ONE Pro (Webstore edition). All of them have identical cases, measuring 200(L)x176(W)x 380(H)mm (7.87x6.92x14.96 inches). It's only slightly taller than one foot; overall it's about a third or less the size of a compact ATX case. The Corsair ONE and Corsair ONE Pro differ in GPU (and GPU cooling), storage, and CPU (you can overclock the Pro model).
The Corsair ONE Pro and Corsair ONE Pro (webstore edition) differ in storage, the webstore edition offers a 960GB SSD instead of a 480GB SSD and 2TB HDD. Upgrading isn't very simple because of the custom nature of the coolers, but I assume you could switch out the SSD and RAM.
The motherboard is custom made by MSI as is the GPU, and the coolers and PSU aren't on the market. While you can overclock the Corsair ONE Pro, at stock the CPU runs with a Turbo frequency of 4.5GHz, and memory is clocked to 2400MHz.
The system comes with a two-year warranty and full support.
The Corsair ONE costs $1799, the Corsair ONE Pro costs $2199, and the Corsair ONE Pro Webstore edition costs $2299.
