After releasing some "vengeful memory" at COMPUTEX 2013, Corsair continues to refine their award-winning PC case line-ups with some more new products. The Corsair Carbide series that is getting new members. This will be a refreshing change as Corsair has a completely new idea for PC case design as well as a more conventional one with the release of the Carbide Air 540 and Carbide 330R.
The new corsair Carbide 330R is focused on pleasing those that need a quiet PC by taking the normal noise reduction methods to their logical extremes. The rubber feet, front 140 mm silent fan, direct airflow path design, and sound damping material on the top, both side panels, and front door help to minimize any noise. The Carbide series sleek design is also taken to the logic extreme complete with few external openings. The Carbide 330R still has an impressive component support list fitting up to Extended ATX motherboards, 5 fans, has USB 3.0 onboard, and four internal HDD trays. The 330R is also available now with an MSRP of $89.99 US.
The new Corsair Carbide Air 540 is the case that garners attention with a double wide design. It divides up components into two compartments, allowing for better airflow and easier installation. The Air 540 also features magnetic dust filters, support for two liquid cooling radiators ( 240/280 mm radiator on top and 360/280/240 mm radiator in front), extra-large side window, and support for up to 6 storage drives. If nothing else this $139.99 US case promises to turn heads.
Corsair will also be releasing three new keyboards to their already impressive lineup this upcoming July with the mechanical K70 and K65 as well as the membrane key K50. All three feature 100% anti-ghosting matrix, 1000 Hz polling, full key rollover, and the backlighting. The K50 will feature 18 programmable gaming keys, 6 multimedia keys, on board memory, and RGB backlight color selection.
Stepping up to the mechanical keyboards gives you a new range of options. The K65 will feature a compact "tenkeyless" design (no numberpad), 18 programmable keys, backlighting of any color, and Cherry MX Red switches. The top-tier K70 is where you get your choice of Cherry MX switches (Red, Brown or Blue), gun-metal anodized aluminum chassis and individually programmable blue backlighting for each key.
Finally to round things out Corsair is also releasing two new mice to their lineup this month in the Raptor M40 and M30. Both will feature a 4000 DPI optical sensor, PTFE glide pads, and on-the-fly DPI switching. The Raptor M series are both solid, well designed mice with user comfort and high responsiveness in mind. The Raptor M30 and M40 will have an US MSRP of $49.99 and $59.99 respectively which makes them both very affordable options.
