Corsair unveils new cooling and lighting kits for gamers

Corsair has introduced new lighting and cooling kits that make automatic adjustments.

Corsair has announced the availability of new performance gaming devices, in the shape of the Link Cooling Kit and the Link Cooling and Lighting Kit.

The basis of each is the Corsair Link system, which uses modular hardware and software to give users the ability to comprehensively monitor and control their PC cooling and lighting.

Corsair Link Commander is central to this, connecting via USB and providing eight digital terminals and one analogue port for sensors and nodes.

The Cooling Node provides five fan control terminals, four sensor terminals, and three temperature sensors, while the Lighting Node provides two lighting channels, each of which can control up to 33 LED strips. Both connect directly to the Commander.

Corsair Link Dashboard takes control of software needs, providing at-a-glance parametric monitoring on Windows machines with versatile options to allow manual or automatic cooling. Adjustments can also be made to provide a balance between cooling performance and fan noise, depending on the requirements.

In the Corsair Link Cooling Kit, users get the Commander, Cooling Node and Dashboard software. Taking the Cooling and Lighting Kit includes all this plus the Lighting Node and three LED strips.

Both of these packages are complete solutions, which allow the consumer to immediately enjoy the benefits of the system, Corsair claims.

"Corsair Link is a complete ecosystem of kits and components that offers remarkable control of a system's cooling and lighting customisation," says Ruben Mookerjee, vice-president and general manager for components at Corsair.

"PC enthusiasts will no longer have to rely on manual adjustments for fan and lighting control. Corsair Link Dashboard is easy to use and offers both instant and automatic control of cooling fans, case lighting, and compatible Corsair products."

In November, Corsair unveiled a range of new quad-channel memory kits to help overclockers maximise the performance of their machines.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801261942-ADNFCR
