For the first time from CORSAIR, iCUE unifies dynamic lighting control, cooling control, system monitoring and command customization within a single interface, supporting thousands of CORSAIR products.
CORSAIR has today also announced two new flagship additions to its range of RGB products; VENGEANCE RGB PRO Series DDR4 memory and the Obsidian Series 500D RGB SE PC Case. Both feature individually controllable multi-zone RGB lighting, able to be synchronized across all your compatible CORSAIR devices with a single click, as well as performance monitoring.
VENEGANCE RGB PRO Series DDR4 memory brings multi-zone RGB lighting to the DIMM slot, with each module boasting ten bright RGB LEDs, controlled by CORSAIR iCUE software. Lighting synchronizes with all your CORSAIR iCUE compatible hardware. It's even possible to re-order or invert each module's lighting in iCUE.
Setting up VENEGANCE RGB PRO is as simple as fitting modules into a DIMM slot on most current Intel and AMD DDR4 motherboards and running CORSAIR iCUE, with no additional cables or wires required. What's more, VENGEANCE RGB PRO is XMP 2.0 compatible with a single motherboard setting, and available in speeds up to 4,600MHz.
The memory features a custom performance PCB and aluminum heatspreader available in black or white.
In the new Obsidian 500D RGB SE, the standard 500D front aluminum plate is replaced with a smoked tempered glass and backed by three LL120 RGB fans, each equipped with 16 LEDs for a total of 48 RGB LEDs of illumination.
Powered by an included CORSAIR Commander PRO digital RGB lighting and fan controller, and CORSAIR iCUE software, you can synchronize lighting with the rest of your CORSAIR iCUE compatible setup. The iCUE also offering system monitoring and customizable cooling curves, so you can take direct control of your system's fans, adjust speeds to correspond with CPU, GPU or system temperatures for low-noise operation, or even stop them completely when you need a moment of silence.
Behind it's RGB lightshow and tempered glass front panel, the Obsidian 500D RGB SE retains its basic features - smoked tempered glass panels on either side and an aluminum top plate and trim Imside, there are plentiful fan mounts, storage space and extras, such as a vertical GPU mount.
CORSAIR VENGEANCE RGB PRO Series DDR4 memory will be available in June 2018. The new Obsidian Series 500D RGB SE is available now.

Beneath its tempered glass exterior, the Crystal 280X RGB offers a dual-chamber design keeps your system's core hardware, such as motherboard, CPU and graphics card, on display and directly cooled by up to six cooling fans, with support for multiple 240mm liquid cooling radiators. Meanwhile, the power supply, drives and cabling are easily concealed in the rear chamber, with plenty of room for cable routing.
Its dual-chamber design also allows the Crystal 280X RGB to offer room for up to two 3.5in drives and three 2.5in drives.
Full-coverage dust filters in the front, roof and floor ensure your system stays looking its best over time.
Available in black or white, the Crystal 280X RGB is also available as the Crystal 280X, equipped with two CORSAIR 120mm cooling fans, for those who'd rather keep a low profile when it comes to their small form factor system.
