Paul, James and Harry go a little peripheral crazy in this week's hardware podcast, but that's understandable as they're joined by special guest Reuben Mookerjee, vice president of Corsair's Component division.
Before we dive into the nitty-gritty of peripheral design, however, we do have time to cover one or two of the most pressing stories of the week. First on the list is Intel's announcement that it will be selling a low-cost liquid cooler for use with its forthcoming LGA2011 CPUs.[break]
Also discussed is Intel's first demonstration of its solar powered CPU, and the world record overclock that AMD has recently applied to one of its Bulldozer CPUs.
We spend the second half of the podcast grilling Reuben about what makes a good peripheral, what innovations he's seen in the market that really impress him and where this market is likely to go in the future. We also talk about Corsair's new range of Vengeance peripherals, and what convinced Corsair that the time was right to enter this particular market.
As always, we've also got our weekly competition in which five lucky winners will each walk away with a Corsair branded Ogio satchel bag.
