They did well with choosing Bispower for fittings and HardwareLabs for radiators as OEMs, but their blocks and pumps are just nowhere near the competition both in looks or quality.

It is strange how Corsair, who once was the benchmark in pretty much every category, started frantically cheeping out everywhere. They became Thermaltake. Cheap, blingy, crap product maker... So sad.

I must add their AIOs, PSUs, and Keyboards still rock, but those are the only designs left from the good old days. Everything new is just scheiße.

They've been sinking for a few years now. It's a shame. But people REALLY should know better. I don't know ANY serious water cooler who would disgrace themselves buying that cheap crap, when we have so many better options.

Why don't they just build a faraday cage around their house if someone is so paranoid
