To be fair, origin's cases have been looking a bit dated the last few years, so they could only benefit form this.

It's a shame. Plus since Corsair sponsor a lot of eSports and whatnot, people will flock to them in droves. Dark times ahead

Who's buying Origin PCs and why would this worry anyone? LOL! No nerd with any self respect is buying that crap. Corsair can ruin this just like they ruined themselves and I suspect very few people will actually care.

Umm... most people in the world? DIY builders are a very small minority.

Yep, As much as I like Corsairs designs etc... Their quality has gone down severely since the majority of shares were bought by EagleTree Capital, I expect Origins quality to go down too, Cases will become very cheap chinesium, Glass will be the cheapest they can find, Paint jobs will be outsourced to the cheapest they can find.


Basically, RIP Origin.
