Corsair Components, Inc. is an American computer peripherals and hardware company headquartered in Fremont, California. The company was incorporated in California in January 1994 and was reincorporated in Delaware in 2007. In January 2010 the company was incorporated again in Delaware as Corsair Components, Inc. Corsair designs and sells a range of products for computers, including high-speed DRAM modules, ATX power supplies (PSUs), USB flash drives (UFDs), memory and case cooling solutions, computer cases, solid-state drives (SSDs), and speakers.
In addition to its worldwide headquarters in Fremont, California, Corsair maintains a production facility in Taoyuan City, Taiwan, for assembly, test, and packaging of select products, distribution centers in Asia, the United States, and Europe, and has sales and marketing offices throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.
The company was founded as Corsair Microsystems in 1994 by Andy Paul, Don Lieberman, and John Beekley. Corsair originally developed Level 2 cache modules, called Cache on a stick or COAST modules, for OEMs. After Intel incorporated the L2 cache in the processor with the release of its Pentium Pro processor family, Corsair changed its focus to DRAM modules, primarily in the server market. In 2002, Corsair began shipping DRAM modules that were designed to appeal to computer enthusiasts, who were using them for overclocking. Since then, Corsair has continued to produce memory modules for PCs, and has added other PC components as well.
Corsair has recently[when?] expanded its DRAM memory module production into the high end market for overclocking. This expansion allows for high power platforms and the ability to get more performance out of the CPU and RAM. The Corsair Vengeance Pro series and Corsair Dominator Platinum series are built for overclocking applications.
The company's products include:
- DRAM and DIMM memory modules for desktop, notebook, and notebook PCs.
- USB flash drives
- ATX and SFX compatible PSUs
- Cases for PCs
- Fan-based air and closed-loop water cooling products for CPUs, memory and cases
- Solid-state drives based on SSD controllers
- USB audio headsets for gaming
- Mechanical Gaming keyboards
- Gaming mice
- Audio Products
