Corsair One review: Small, fast, and surprisingly quiet

As Corsair’s first-ever PC, the One is impressive as hell.This tiny machine (which starts at $1,800) is fast, beautifully built, and perhaps more importantly—quiet, too. That’s no small feat for a PC that measures just 15 inches high, 7 inches wide, and 8 inches deep.According to Corsair a professional lab measured the One’s acoustics at idle: 20dB. That’s equivalent to someone whispering three feet from you, says Corsair.Quiet at idle is one thing. Quiet when the CPU and GPU are at full throttle is quite another. The One excels on that front, too. It’s far from silent (I’ve certainly heard quieter—albeit much larger—machines under load), but I mostly agree with Corsair’s assessment that it would be “unnoticeable” under normal gaming conditions.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

I’ve been messing with Rock Band VR off-and-on for the last two days. The first thing I’ll say: Much as I hate the idea of rebuying my entire song library piecemeal, this game desperately needs DLC. It’s been a while since I’ve been limited to only the pack-in soundtrack on a Rock Band game, and oof, it’s rough.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
