Corsair Announces Availability of Corsair Link Kits
LAS VEGAS, Nevada — January 10th, 2012 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the availability of the Corsair Link™ Cooling Kit and the Corsair Link Cooling and Lighting Kit.
Corsair Link is a modular hardware and software system that provides comprehensive monitoring and control of PC cooling and lighting. The two packages are complete solutions that allow customers to immediately enjoy the benefits of Corsair Link technology. Customers can then further expand their control with additional peripherals that offer Corsair Link connectivity.
Corsair Link Commander
At the heart of each Corsair Link system is the Corsair Link Commander. Enclosed in an extruded aluminum housing and designed to mount into any available 3.5" drive bay, the Corsair Link Commander connects to the PC via USB and provides eight Corsair Link Digital terminals and one analog Corsair Link terminal for non-digital sensors and nodes.
Corsair Link Dashboard
Corsair Link Dashboard is a Microsoft® Windows® application that offers at-a-glance parametric monitoring and sophisticated control options. Cooling can be adjusted manually or automatically, with customizable configurations to provide exactly the right balance of fan noise and system cooling performance for the customer's needs. Lighting can be set to fixed colors, or programmed to change automatically according to system temperature or other parameters.
Corsair Link Cooling Node and Lighting Node
The Cooling Node and the Lighting Node both connect to the digital terminals on Corsair Link Commander. The Cooling Node provides five fan control terminals, four sensor terminals, and three temperature sensors. The Lighting Node provides two lighting channels, each of which can control up to 33 LED strips. In addition to software control, integrated buttons allow the user to manually adjust lighting values. Each node is finished in plastic housing and includes cables for connecting to the power supply and the Corsair Link Commander.
Corsair Link Kits – Putting It All Together
The Corsair Link Cooling Kit is a starter package that includes:
Corsair Link Commander
One Corsair Link Cooling Node
Corsair Link Dashboard application
The Corsair Link Cooling and Lighting Kit includes the above, and adds a Corsair Link Lighting Node and three LED Light Strips. Each light strip contains three RGB LEDs capable of displaying any of 16.7 million colors. Up to 33 strips can be connected together. Customers who start with the Corsair Link Cooling Kit may also purchase the Corsair Link Lighting Node separately.
Connectivity with Components and Peripherals
Any component with a Corsair Link Digital connector can be added to the Corsair Link system to provide monitoring and control via the desktop. The Corsair Hydro Series™ H80 and H100 Liquid CPU Coolers connect via Corsair Link Digital to allow precise coolant temperature monitoring and radiator fan control. They join the Airflow Pro™ in offering Corsair Link Digital connectivity.
The Hydro Series H60 Liquid CPU Cooler includes an analog Corsair Link connector which allows monitoring of coolant temperature from the desktop.
"Corsair Link is a complete ecosystem of kits and components that offers remarkable control of a system's cooling and lighting customization." said Ruben Mookerjee, VP 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."
