A Closer Look at the CORSAIR VENGEANCE 5180 Gaming PC

[Shannon]: Hey everyone, I’m Shannon Morse and today I’m giving you a close-up look at the new Corsair Vengeance 5180 Gaming PC. Corsair has been making high-performance PC parts for years, so it’s no surprise that they wanted to expand into the systems market.

Their first PC, the Corsair ONE went on sale last year, and now Corsair has a second line of fully built systems, Vengeance PC. The Corsair Vengeance PC comes full of high-end tech, including the brand new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 from MSI’s VENTUS line, an Intel i7 8700 CPU, and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 RAM.

Everything is built into a Crystal Series 280X Micro-ATX case, which is wider than most full towers, but it offers up a much cleaner design due to it’s dual chamber layout. Tempered glass on three sides allows you to show off your personality with RGB customized lighting, while the steel construction allows for long-lasting durability.

The spacious interior also allows for full customization, though you probably won’t need to upgrade anything in this rig for quite some time. The Corsair CX750 80 PLUS Bronze PSU and 2TB hard drive are all hidden in the rear compartment, as well as the 480GB NVME M.

2 SSD, along with any additional cables. Now this opens up the main chamber for the components that come equipped with a ton of RGB lighting, including 120mm cooling fans, the RAM, and the Corsair Hydro Series H100i PRO Liquid Cooler.

In total, you have 95 LEDs that you can customize using Corsair’s IQ software to sync lighting across all of your Corsair products. You can choose from dozens of preset patterns and effects, you can create your own, like an awesome unicorn rainbow, or a more subtle two-color shift.

The MSI B360M BAZOOKA PLUS Micro-ATX Motherboard fits comfortably inside the case and it sports four USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Gen 2, and one USBC, as well as Ethernet. The 280X case also has a couple of USB 3.

1 Gen 1 ports, on the front next, to the power button the GeForce RTX 2080 has three display ports to choose from, as well as one HDMI. Now there is no built-in wireless card, but an external USB wireless adapter is included in the box.

Corsair also includes a K55 RGB keyboard and their harpoon RGB mouse, so you have everything you need to start gaming right out of the box. Now since I am a podcaster by trade, I have to have a quiet PC and this one makes very little noise, due to liquid cooling for Corsair’s H100i PRO and the larger fans.

And all of those components are protected from the outside world with dust filters that cover the front, the roof, the floor, and the PSU. The Corsair Vengeance 5180 is $2399.99 and is available now. What do you think? Comment below and subscribe if you haven’t already for more GeForce content.
