Introduction

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.
