Corsair recently released several new pre-built desktop PCs; and one of them is the new Corsair Vengeance 5182 Gaming PC. The Vengeance Gaming PC lineup is Corsair’s pre-built gaming PC that is similar to a custom-built gaming system. Unlike the Corsair One Series with its compact and professional-looking design, the Vengeance 5182 gaming PC is built and designed for gamers and enthusiasts in mind. It features a high-performance micro ATX housing with tempered glass panels, upgradable components, let’s not forget – RGB lighting; just like a custom gaming PC but built by Corsair. The new Vengeance 5182 isn’t the fastest variant; it’s actually the cheaper model on the Vengeance series. Looking at the specs, the Corsair Vengeance 5182 belongs to mid to higher end gaming PC category; not too expensive but enough to play all modern AAA title games. Check out the rest of its features, specs, price and where to buy below.
Corsair Vengeance 5182 Gaming PC Features and Specs
The Corsair Vengeance 5182 gaming PC is the latest member of the company’s Vengeance gaming PC lineup. It’s not a flagship setup, and it’s actually somewhat an “entry level” if you look at the entirety of the Vengeance lineup.
Just like the other Vengeance gaming PCs, the 5182 uses a Crystal Series 280X RGB micro ATX case to house the components. The chassis itself is not that tall and somewhat wide due to the nature of its form factor. But it features tempered glass, perfect for showing off the components inside and the RGB lighting.
The Corsair Vengeance 5182 is powered by an Intel Core i7-9700 CPU; an 8 core, 8 thread CPU with a boost clock speed of up to 4.7 GHz. It is a non-K CPU, meaning it is not overclockable. The CPU is paired with a 16GB DDR4 memory and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphics card. As for storage, the 5182 has a 480GB NVMe M.2 SSD and a 2TB hard disk drive. There is another model, the Vengeance 5181, that comes with a single 960GB NVME M.2 SSD only.
You can check out our review of the GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphics card so you that you’ll have an idea on the performance of this graphics card. Note that I am not sure what specific model or variant of RTX 2070 Super will the 5182 have. Nevertheless it is an RTX 2070 Super and graphics performance should not be that far from another RTX 2070 Super.
Finally, as you can see from the photos, it features RGB lighting almost anywhere in the system. From the front intake fans, the CPU cooler, the DDR4 memory and some RGB ambient lighting as well. You can check out the rest of the specs of this gaming PC from the table below.

Who Should Buy the Vengeance 5182 Gaming PC?
I think the Vengeance 5182 is great for those who are looking for a gaming PC with a decent specs; enough to play games at 1440p and doesn’t have to worry about configuration and overclocking. If you have or planning to get a 1080p high refresh rate or 1440p (high refresh rate) monitor, the Vengeance 5182 would be a good pair for that gaming monitor.
