Corsair One vs Origin Chronos

I'm trying to decide between a Corsair One and the Origin Chronos

 

Both have similar specs on paper and price is pretty similar for a maxed version. Around $3,500. But was wondering if there was anything that I missed that would sway you in one direction or another

  • Both have Intel 9900k, Water Cooled, 32gb ram, RTX 2080
  • Corsair One comes with a 5400 RPM hard drive? 5400? Aren't those like hard drives from the 90's?
  • Origin comes with a free T-Shirt! (The scales have been tipped, =P)

Appreciate any thoughts or recommendations I should add to my considerations

 

Thank you!

LTT bought a Chronos in their $1500 pc lineup, right? Whatever Origin sold them was absolute ass in every way, including quality.

Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, Fractal, GSkill (RAM only)

@SenpaiKaplan You have the link to that video? 

 

Also I wonder if the price point makes a difference. $1,500 vs $3,500

Why not build your own PC?

 

Honestly building a PC isnt hard, as per my motto:

There is no soldering, you dont need a degree in IT or anything like that. Just time, patience, and a Phillips head screwdriver :D Worried about compatible parts? Pcpartpicker is a good place to start. Need advice on how to build? youtube is here!

Honestly, I don't really have the time for the more advanced setups for water cooling the CPU and graphics card and dealing with all the overclocking CPU/graphics settings for the specific motherboard.

 

And I hate cable management / wiring =)

 

I'm more of a plug and play kind of guy these days.

Who said you need to do water cooling loops and crazy stuff?

You could still do just fine with a air cooled machine.

Personally i just think these pre builts are a waste of money compared to what you could do on your own.

Also yes wiring and cable management is a pain but hey there is always the verge way of cable management for the lazy.

Plug and play is nice but I think pre builts charge too much compared to a well priced pcpartpicker build.
