Design Your Own Custom Loop

For a beginner, designing a custom loop can be a daunting task. The CORSAIR Hydro X Series Custom Cooling Configurator takes the guess work out of picking compatible hardware for your PC, making it easy to configure a full custom loop of your own!

If you’d like to see the Hydro X Series Custom Cooling Configurator in action, we’ve put together a video guide to take you through the entire loop configuration process!

And once you’ve gotten all the hardware for your loop, check out our Hydro X video series with detailed installation and setup videos for everything from installing a water block to cutting/bending tubing, and even filling your loop!

Preparing for the Next Generation of Memory

DDR4 memory has had a great run with our excellent kits like our DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB, VENGEANCE RGB PRO SL, and VENGEANCE LPX offering high performance and outstanding looks. With that said, DDR5 memory is on the horizon, bringing with it some key improvements for your current and future computing needs.

What is DDR5?

Better, faster, and more efficient! DDR5 aims to raise the cap on memory speed and capacity in a big way, pushing bandwidth up to 51 GBps (for DDR5-6400 at the time of writing).

And raising the theoretical capacity of a single stick of RAM up to a whopping 128GB!

Why Do We Need DDR5?

More bandwidth allows for more efficient use of the memory bus in systems with high core count CPUs while the denser capacities will allow your system to tackle even more at once which is great for streaming and content creation (just to name a few applications).

When is DDR5 Coming?

Soon™! The industry is hard at work on bringing the next generation of memory to a desktop near you and we’ve been in the memory game for a long time. We’re excited to share more about DDR5 in the coming months so keep an eye out for more details from our social channels! In the meantime, we’ve put together this primer to help get you up to speed on DDR5.

Better Together: SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS Multipoint

We first introduced SLIPSTREAM CORSAIR WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY on mice with the HARPOON RGB WIRELESS, keyboards with the K57 RGB WIRELESS, and headsets with the VIRTUOSO RGB and VIRTUOSO RGB SE.

An additional benefit to SLIPSTREAM CORSAIR WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY is the ability to connect multiple devices to a single wireless receiver using SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS Multipoint.

To get started, update to the latest version of CORSAIR iCUE, at the time of writing this would be version 4.10 or newer (which you can download directly from our website). Before we proceed, we strongly recommend connecting your peripherals and wireless receivers directly to your system and temporarily disabling any third-party RGB software throughout this process.

Now update the firmware for all your peripherals that you intend to connect via SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS Multipoint (if any firmware updates are available).

Then navigate to the “Connections” tab for the wireless receiver that came with your mouse or keyboard (you can choose the receiver for either).

If you intend to use a SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS headset like the VIRTUOSO RGB or VIRTUOSO RGB SE, you’ll need to select the VIRTUOSO wireless receiver instead.

Click the “PAIR” button to add additional devices in Multipoint mode for this wireless receiver. Note that this button will only be enabled when you have a compatible combination of peripherals connected, such as a mouse and keyboard, headset and keyboard, headset and mouse, or all three connected to your system.

You’ll be advised to connect all peripherals and the receiver you wish to pair them to directly to your system’s USB ports. Avoid connecting your devices through a USB hub, dock, or extension.

Each device should be connected via USB cable and switched to USB mode.

Once all devices are connected via USB and are in USB mode, the pairing process will begin, don’t unplug or switch modes on any of these peripherals.

Once complete, you can remove all USB cables and switch your devices back to wireless mode.

And you’ll now see currently paired devices in the “CONNECTIONS” tab for your wireless receiver.

And on the iCUE 4 homescreen, you’ll notice icons indicating the paired devices on the tile for your primary wireless receiver so you can quickly see what’s connected at a glance. If you still have the wireless receivers for your other peripherals connected still, you can remove them from your system and store them in a safe place should you ever need to use them again in the future.

Gains for Games

The CORSAIR SABRE RGB PRO is part of the CHAMPION SERIES product line of high performance gaming peripherals.
The CORSAIR SABRE RGB PRO is part of the CHAMPION SERIES product line of high performance gaming peripherals.

Our new SABRE RGB PRO CHAMPION SERIES Gaming Mouse was designed from the start for esports competitions where low-latency, high-speed performance is critical. To test its might, we worked with NVIDIA® to get the SABRE RGB PRO validated for NVIDIA Reflex, which resulted in the SABRE RGB PRO receiving a chart-topping mouse click latency rating of just 0.57ms, worthy of our new CHAMPION SERIES products!

https://github.com/NVIDIA/Reflex-Latency-Analyzer-Mouse-Database/blob/main/NVIDIA%20RLA%20Mice%20Database%20-%20Github.csv

This class-leading score is the result of the enormous effort put in by our engineering, research, and development teams working in concert with the demands of real-world gamers and competitors to produce a truly amazing product.

What’s NVIDIA Reflex?

NVIDIA Reflex is a combination of multiple NVIDIA technologies: their latest graphics cards and high-performance G-SYNC displays, which combine powers to provide a solution that can measure and reduce click-to-display latency in supported competitive titles. This means that you need not only a system that supports NVIDIA Reflex, but also a display that takes advantage of these competitive tools as well.


Here’s a short video from NVIDIA explaining the tech behind NVIDIA Reflex:

Closing Thoughts

An awesome NVIDIA Reflex rating isn’t the only thing that sets our gaming peripherals apart. The SABRE RGB PRO is finely tuned for competitive gaming with an ultra lightweight ergonomic design, QUICKSTRIKE spring loaded clicks, and flexible paracord cable, plus when paired with CORSAIR iCUE software, you can take full advantage of all your CORSAIR gear. We’re not saying you’ll get good while trying to go pro using a mouse like the SABRE RGB PRO, but we can help ensure that hardware bottlenecks won’t be an issue.
