Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Corsair is a well-known memory and power supply manufacturer, but today we are testing an air cooler from them, the A50, which has a tower heatsink with three heatpipes and a 120 mm fan. Check it out!

The A50 box is made of cardpaper, with no openings or transparent window.

In Figure 3, you can see the A50 heatsink. It uses what could be considered a very conservative design for current standards, with "only" three 8-mm U-shaped heatpipes.
