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 2, you can see the box contents: heatsink, fan, manuals, installation hardware, and a tube of thermal compound.
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.
In the next pages, you will see this cooler in detail.
