A Look Inside
Unlike many other small form factor pre-built systems you can actually open up the Corsair ONE for maintenance and upgrades. The first thing you are going to want to do is remove the top fan. To do this press and hold the button on the back of the unit and carefully pull the top fan up off the unit. There will be a small 4-pin cable that you’ll have to disconnect to fully remove it.
With the top fan removed you’ll see two black screws on each side. You’ll need to remove these to unlock each side panel. There is also a small piece of reflective tape that you’ll have to cut so the side panels fully come off. With the screws removed carefully pull the side panel up slightly and it will come off. Starting on the left side here is where you’ll find your graphics card and a decently long radiator. We can see that Corsair has liquid-cooled the RTX 2080 Ti with an all-in-one self-contained unit. There is also a large heatsink and fan on top of the power delivery components on the card.
Opening up the other side we have a slightly smaller radiator and another all-in-one unit for the CPU. I like that the GPU and CPU liquid-cooled units and independent of each other so if for some reason one fails they both won’t. The CPU block that Corsair is using is very similar to what we’ve seen on their retail AiO units except the tubing comes out from each side rather than both on the same side.
With the second side panel off we can get a better look at the rest of the components. Corsair is using the MSI MEG Z490I Unify motherboard, their own Vengeance DDR4 memory, a Samsung NVMe SSD, Seagate hard drive, and their own SF600 80PLUS Gold rated power supply. So you could easily upgrade your CPU, memory, and both hard drives.
