CORSAIR announced that it has acquired custom gaming PC leader ORIGIN PC.
“With the gaming PC market continuing to expand as an increasing number of players make the jump from console to PC, we wanted to do more to reach customers in North America that prefer to buy, rather than build, their system,” said Andy Paul, Founder and CEO of CORSAIR. “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 PC gamers.”
With a decade of experience in creating high-performance PCs, ORIGIN PC specializes in delivering hand-built, personalized PCs for gaming, while maintaining customer service and support from day one.
ORIGIN PC offers a wide range of high-performance configurable PCs, ranging from gaming PCs and powerful workstations to gaming laptops.
“CORSAIR is a fantastic partner to help take ORIGIN PC forward, known for creating quality, high-performance products that fully align with ORIGIN PC,” said Kevin Wasielewski, CEO of ORIGIN PC. “With a complete range of enthusiast PC products, ORIGIN PC and CORSAIR are uniquely placed to create amazing new systems that make the experience of owning a personalized custom gaming PC better than ever.”
Combining the CORSAIR product portfolio with ORIGIN PC’s system building expertise, in-depth configuration options and substantial work force will further expand both company’s capabilities. Integrating the CORSAIR iCUE software ecosystem into ORIGIN PC’s systems will offer gamers system-wide lighting synchronization 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 is expected in the near future.
ORIGIN PC will remain a separate brand within CORSAIR, and will continue to operate from its Miami, FL offices. All existing ORIGIN PC warranties, purchases and support are unaffected and will continue to be provided by ORIGIN PC’s customer support team. ORIGIN PC will continue to custom build to order desktops, laptops, and workstations by hand.
CORSAIR will continue to offer its own branded range of systems, including the VENGEANCE PC, CORSAIR ONE and CORSAIR ONE PRO.
