Corsair’s One series has always gone the other direction to most brands, offering gamers a load of power inside a tiny chassis. While these may not be the most affordable way to play games, they are brilliant in what they achieve. Corsair One prebuilt gaming PCs have received a bit of an update of late, with the i300 model now featuring Intel’s Alder Lake processors.

The Corsair One i300, based on the brand’s acclaimed 12-liter case, can not only house an i9-12900K CPU but also 64GB of DDR5 RAM, and can be equipped with the RTX 3080 Ti graphics card.

When showcased at CES 2022, the Corsair One i300 certainly turned a few heads, after all, who doesn’t like a tiny PC. You have to say hats off to Corsair for fitting so much power into a case of this size. Now you are probably thinking, that machine must run hot, it has to. Well, yes but that isn’t a reason not to go for it. That being said, you could save yourself hundreds if you just built your own system.

The reviews have been fairly generous for what is essentially an overpriced PC. No disrespect to Corsair, it’s a PC I’d love to have but the price is as eye-watering as the specifications. You also have to consider the fact it isn’t very upgradeable when compared to a traditional desktop but these are the trade-offs for an SFF PC of this magnitude.

So what do reviewers think?

They are mostly positive, however, everyone has picked up on the price. The price can’t be ignored. On the other hand, everyone has marveled at the engineering and sheer power in a tiny chassis, it’s wonderful.

PCMag, Techradar, and Tomshardware all gave the Corsair One 4/5.

If you look at the Corsair One objectively it doesn’t make a lot of sense, however, for those where convenience is more important than money and those that love the fabulous miniature size, it’s a pretty neat gaming system.
