THE CORSAIR ONE PRO GAMING PC

This is a borderline small form factor PC. It does have a small footprint, only its height is troubling.

These are their offical specs:

Dimensions: 200mm x 176mm x 380mm
CPU: i7-7700K Quad-Core processor
GPU: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
DRAM: CORSAIR 32GB 2400MHz DDR4
Storage (SSD): 480GB M.2 NVMe
Storage (HDD): 2TB 2.5” SATA
2 Year Warranty

Not bad specs.

Most small form factor enthusiasts will find this out of their price range.

If you got the cash, this Corsair One Pro (w/16GB RAM) could be the one for you.

The EARLIER (pre-Pro) VERSION did not have an NVMe SSD storage option; but was stuck with SATA-3, which a lot of people complained about – as this early Linus Tech Tips video shows.

Original Release did not have NVMe option.

HOWEVER CORSAIR SEEMS TO HAVE ADDRESSED THAT ISSUE

With that initial oversight corrected, the only thing left to consider is if you want to wait for the Coffee Lake CPU upgrade.

CPU CORES/THREADS BASE Freq. TURBO PRICE
i7-8700K
(future)
6C/12T 3.7 GHz 4.3 GHz $420*
i7-7700K 4C/8T 4.2 Ghz 4.5 GHz $339

*The 8700K specs and prices are gleaned from rumored released info on internet, and subject to change. Other sources have $400 or $398.

If you are going to be using heavy multi-core programs, such as gaming or video editing, it might be worth it to wait.
