Hello PC Builders!
As we enter another action-packed month, we’re kicking things off with a major update - v1.15. This time around we’re growing the entire parts range with a variety of fan favourites, extra small form factor options, a mix of often requested white parts, and one more venue to build it all in.
First though, we sailed the high seas looking for computing’s finest privateers and returned with one of their newest treasure chests.
Introducing the CORSAIR iCUE 5000T
In a PC Building Simulator first, we’ve teamed up with CORSAIR to celebrate the release of their new iCUE 5000T case. Continuing the 5000 series case range first shown during CES2021, we’re excited to unveil the latest entries’ digital counterpart to closely coincide with the physical release.
