Computex wrap-up: Corsair's amazing new fans

Mag-lev fans? Seriously?

  • Corsair's new ML 'Magnetic Levitation' fans (left) rise out of their mountings when active meaning they can spin faster and (due to lack of friction) quieter.

  • Corsair's new standard LED fan range (right) have frosted fan blades and LEDs in the core and round the edge. A controller unit can manage six of them and keeps light and power on separate circuits.

  • Corsair has an exclusive license for the maglev bearing. It allows a higher CFM (cubic feet per minute) per decibel. It works between 400rpm and 2,400rpm. Available July.

  • Available in 120mm and 140mm versions, the ML series fans see their "impeller physically levitated away from the frame of the fan" - an x-axis is now in play and bearings are diminished.

  • Corsair has a graphics card: the Nvidia Hydro GFX GTX 1080 graphics card, in partnership with MSI. Corsair makes the cooler.

  • Corsair's living-room-friendly Bulldog "quiet" case. It can handle VR in a space where you need space to move around.

  • The 400C case is now available in white. There's also a white PSU coming soon.

  • Corsair Vengeance LED is a new line for Corsair. The lighting will be software controlled. Frequency: 2400-4400 DDR4. The bars on top are removable.

  • Padlock 3 - 256-bit AES-encrypted flash drive is now USB 3.

  • Corsair Dominator Platinum Special Edition memory using "top-binned" Samsung ICs. Available in black or chrome.

  • Corsair's Dominator Platinum Special Edition sets will be limited to just 500 sets of each colour (black and chrome). Available in dual and quad-channel kits in Q3.

  • Corsair's Lapdog (with K65 RGB keyboard) lets you do PC gaming in your living-room on your lap! It's available for $159 now.
