Origin PC specialises in delivering hand-built, personalised PCs aimed at gaming from gaming PCs and powerful workstations to gaming laptops, building systems focused on customisation, service, gaming and technology.
Corsair CEO Andy Paul said that with the gaming PC market continuing to expand as an increasing number of players make the jump from console to PC, his outfit wanted to do more to reach customers in North America that prefer to buy, rather than build, their system.
"With Origin PC's expertise in personalized custom gaming systems and Corsair's strength in performance PC hardware and the iCue software ecosystem, we're excited to combine our efforts to create new world-class gaming experiences for a PC gamer", he said.
Combining the Corsair product portfolio with Origin PC’s system-building expertise, in-depth configuration options and substantial workforce will further expand both company’s capabilities. Integrating the Corsair iCue software ecosystem into Origin PC’s systems will offer gamers system-wide lighting synchronisation and performance monitoring, while the recently announced range of Corsair Hydro X Series custom cooling will soon be found in select Origin PC systems. Further co-operation and integration of Corsair and Origin products will be announced shortly.
Origin PC will remain as a separate brand within Corsair and will continue to operate from its Miami offices. All existing Origin PC warranties, purchases and support are unaffected and will continue to be provided by Origin PC’s customer support team.
