The Corsair Cooling A70 High-Performance CPU Cooler uses advanced thermal engineering technology to deliver superior air cooling performance: four 8mm copper heatpipes directly contact your CPU, and the surface is planed to increase heat transfer efficiency. Dual speed-selectable 120mm fans, mounted on rubber studs, spin quietly in a push-pull configuration for optimum airflow.

Experience: 2 Years
Nice big heatsink
Good airflow
Cooler might be too large for some cases
If you have a big enough cause, this is an awesome cooler. My temperatures dropped roughly 30c just from changing the stock heatsink. With this fan I was able to over clock my i7 920 from 2.6ghz to 3.8ghz. I've used the cooler for 2 years by now and it's still working perfectly. I'll definitely give corsair coolers a chance on my next system.

Experience: 2 Months
-Keeps temps considerably cooler
-Price (at $30)
-Comes with decent thermal paste
-Dual 120mm with 4 direct contact heat pipes
-BIG (covered 1 RAM slot)
-Fan speed cannot be controlled through the computer (resistors much be used to lower voltage)
At $30, it is a great deal. At full speed, it's reasonably quiet. Great air-cooling solution.

Experience: 3 Weeks

price (on sale)
fan cables are short
This is a great air cooler when on sale (29.99). Keeps the stock AMD 955 at 24/44C idle/load. Easy to install, but the size can make it a little awkward.

Experience: 6 Months
Good Temps
Looks Sleek
A50 better options usually
Fans little noisy
Have to apply TIM slightly different for best performance
Bought for $29.99. Good temps for OC. There are 4 direct touch heat pipes so TIM has to be applied different method to get max performance but still doable with out any major issue. A50 Usually better option though and DO NOT BUY at $64.99.

Experience: 3 Months
 Verified Owner
works well, computer idles at 21 C
Not that quiet, but doesn't really bother me
Picked this up for $26.99 It does the job. It looks like a quality piece.

Experience: 30 Days
4 direct copper heat pipes good
Sales price is good $30.
Huge Heat Sink good.
noisy fan.
mounting instruction is poor.
front fan block one of the ram slot on Asus Sabertooth Mobo.
Big Heat Sink need big case.
It is a OK product for the sale price. The stock fan is way to loud even with the resister. No instruction to put the 4 rubber washer.
End up replace the stock fan with silent type fans mean the total cost is higher. Not temp different between stock and low rpm fan ( testing using prime95 ).

Experience: 2 Weeks
 Verified Owner
Keeps my stock i5 2500k running at an average temp of 26C.
Very loud.
Does what you expect but the noise is unfortunate. Bought it when it was on sale, otherwise I would have gone with a CM 212.

Experience: 1 Weeks

- looks nice
- excellent results
- great value (at sale price)
- difficult to install
- poor documentation
- fans aren't the greatest (noisy)
On an i5 2500k i4.5ghz I'm getting 33 at idle and 54 with the Intel Burn Test...excellent cooler.

P.S. This thing is a pain to install if you have chunky man hands and a compact case, it also covers my first DIMM slot. Not a big deal as I only need two dimms but could be a headache down the road.

Experience: 1 Days
cools old chip down 25 degrees from 50 to 25 idling and load cools down 30 degrees. great build quality. complete accessories
little tricky to install on amd because the fastener and fan flash against each other
got this today. originally think about the 212+, but read reviews this one has bigger copper heat pipes, theoretically cools more. amazed with the result. can oc old amd 9950 from 2.6 to 3.4. end up crashing but still the temperature never go more than 45. glad i chose corsair.

Experience: 1 Days

great special pricecooling power.
huge size.
My AMD 1055T overclocked at 4GHZ stays calm at 43 degrees under prime95. without load 24 degrees. Make sure it fits in your case. This thing is just HUGE!
