Hardware Sales – Corsair H100i, RX 480 8GB for $240, Fractal Nano S mITX

Given that we've now entered the fourth quarter of the year, the usual “everything must go” plague has infected manufacturers and retailers alike. We've spotted a PowerColor Red Devil RX 480 8GB for $240 (complete with edgy graphics), Fractal Define Nano S mITX (for the opposite aesthetics), and Corsair CX600W PSU.

Corsair Hydro Series H100i CPU Liquid Cooler ($100): “Flash sale” might have been a bit of a misnomer, as this deal has been up for at least four days now. The H100i is one of Corsair’s (or rather, CoolIT’s) higher-end pumps, using a 240mm dual-fan model radiator with the ability to use Corsair Link software to check coolant temperatures and adjust settings. The $30 discount actually makes the H100i cheaper than the smaller H90 and H80i v2 models, so this is the logical choice for anyone that was planning to save money by getting a 120mm radiator.

PowerColor RED DEVIL Radeon RX 480 8GB ($240 after rebate): There has to be at least one Halloween-themed sale on this list, right? OK. No. But PowerColor’s card manages to finally reach initial reference price for the 8GB RX 480 at $240, and it does it while including an evil-looking three-fan heatsink and a Battlefield 1 discount. PowerColor’s dual-GPU Devil 13 card did win our unofficial “loudest graphics card in history” award early this year, but they appear to have updated their fan design since then and the RX 480 runs significantly cooler, anyway. The Battlefield discount will probably stick around, but the card itself is only on sale through Thursday.

Fractal Design Define Nano S mITX Case ($40 after rebate & code EMCFEEM29): There’s a really impressive pile of discounts on this case, bringing it down to nearly half its usual price. This is the windowed version of the case, which is still fairly buttoned-down and wouldn’t look out of place housing an HTPC. Back in January when the Nano S launched, Fractal stressed its noise-canceling properties and liquid cooling support. Note: most Newegg codes require registering with their email list in order to redeem them, but it’s not much of a hassle to get off the list again afterwards.

Corsair CX600 600W 80 PLUS BRONZE PSU ($37 after rebate): A good buy for the average PC build. This PSU has no modularity and it’s “only” 600W, but few PCs require more than that these days. Any single GPU DIY build with current generation hardware will survive on 600W, though we'd primarily recommend this entry-level PSU for budget builds.

Check back through the weekend for some concluding manufacturer tour coverage, then next week for reviews.
