Corsair Acquires Custom Gaming PC Builder Origin PC

Corsair has been on an acquisition roll as of late. First, they scoped up Elgato Gaming around this time during 2018. Now, they’ve announced that they’ve acquired popular PC maker, Origin PC.

Which is an interesting move. Not only does this give Corsair a boost in regards to the gaming PC scene, but it also benefits Origin. Now, we’ll likely see Origin built PC’s equipped with Corsairs Hydro X AIO cooling series and their iCUE software. Not to mention access to less expensive PC components, as Corsair does manufacture their own memory modules, power supplies and more.


Both Origin’s and Corsair’s CEO’s weighed on the acquisition and are eager to see what the future brings. “Corsair is a fantastic partner to help take Origin PC forward, known for creating quality, high-performance products that fully align with 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.” according to Kevin Wasielewski, CEO of 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.” “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.”, says Andy Paul, the CEO of Corsair.

According to this deal, Origin PC will continue to run independently. Similar to how Alienware and Dell currently work. Origin PC will continue to sell their PC’s, while Corsair will also continue to offer their Corsair ONE and Corsair ONE PRO PCs.

But what does this mean to you and me? Well, nothing actually. As there’s no change to the companies on the outside, we won’t see any changes.
