...about as good as it gets for the enthusiast gamer, and to have said components liquid cooled in a chassis as elegant as this is a rarity.
The Corsair One is in our estimation the best interpretation of a modern gaming PC. Eliminating the bulk associated with typical desktop towers, this sleek rectangular unit delivers immense performance in a luxurious small-form-factor chassis.
Building on that solid foundation, the One i160, new for 2019, ups the ante by adopting a Core i9-9900K processor and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics. That combination is about as good as it gets for the enthusiast gamer, and to have said components liquid cooled in a chassis as elegant as this is a rarity.
Performance is understandably excellent, and the introduction of RTX 2080 Ti makes this an ideal companion for a 4K monitor, or indeed the 4K TV in the living room. It is a shame that Corsair hasn't yet made the move to the latest Z390 chipset, but sticking to Z370 is hardly detrimental to the overall experience, and other than the lofty price tag, there isn't a lot about the One i160 we don't like.
Bottom line: if money is no object, the Corsair One i160 is a terrific gaming PC that comes highly recommended.
Compact chassis still looks great
True 4K gaming credentials
Liquid-cooled CPU and GPU
Excellent all-round performance
Keeps quiet most of the time
Huge price tag
Uses last-gen Z370 chipset
Front USB Type-C would be nice
