Origin Neuron (Corsair Carbide Variant) gaming PC review – PC Gamer

Origin was recently acquired by component manufacturer Corsair, and they’re eager to show off with their latest Origin Neuron configuration with the Corsair Carbide 175R case—and a smattering of other Corsair parts. Origin is just one of many gaming PC manufacturers out there, and with so many options available, these vendors are in a constant struggle to one-up each other as they attempt to justify the sometimes exorbitant costs associated with their products. This field is occasionally punctuated by a manufacturer with exceptional aesthetics, build quality, and value for the service they offer. The Neuron can be a spendy machine depending on your configuration, but you get what you pay for.

Along with the Corsair Carbide 175R case, the Origin Neuron configuration we tested uses Corsair RAM and memory, but not one of its AIO coolers, strangely. Origin’s proprietary AIO cooler is used in this build instead. While this acquisition does give you the option of using genuine Corsair components in your build, it does have the unfortunate side-effect of limiting your choices of hardware, leaving anyone who isn’t necessarily crazy about Corsair’s parts stuck with the stock Origin components.
