Features [ Edit | History ]

Features:

The superior engineering of the Air Series A50 makes it dramatically outperform your CPU's stock heatsink: three 8mm copper heatpipes directly contact your CPU and instantly pull heat up into the aluminum cooling fins. A 120mm fan, mounted on rubber studs to reduce noise and vibration, quietly draws cool air through the fins.

Pros

cools well
Cons loud fan

Summary

average size cooler big enough cool even quad core small enough fit many cases, uses standard fans if need replace, but i recommend any cooler master hyper cooler with atleast 3 heatpipes instead they cool better with much quieter fans and sit higher this sits low can hit ram too close

Pros

-Good performance and value
-Quality fit and finish
-Easy to install
Cons -Fan could be more quiet

Summary

With this on sale it is a no brainer as a replacement to the stock cooler. Brings down load temperatures significantly and idle temps as well. Comes in very nice packaging with all the adapters and the fan resistor. The heatsink itself is nicely finished with the aesthetic top and the fan is easily fitted onto it. Installation is a breeze.

Pros

Big tower heatsink. Decent cooling. Enough clearance for a variety high ram modules including the Corsair Vengeance.
Cons N/A

Summary

Overall a great heatsink that does its job and provides enough clearance for the ram I was using. Cools as well as CM 212+ and just as quiet. Great for budget to medium builds. I have my 8120 oc'ed to 3880 and it's barely breaking a sweat!

Pros

Big tower heatsink. Decent cooling. Enough clearance for a variety high ram modules.
Cons 2-Pin fan with a resistor. I'd expect a PWM fan these days.

Summary

Overall a great heatsink that does its job and provides enough clearance for the ram I was using.

Pros

-Nice looking cooler
-very easy to install
Cons -pretty tall, almost couldnt fit in my case

Summary

Bought this when it was on sale....can't complain for the money I paid for....much better than stock intel cooler and pretty quiet.

Pros

Keeps the CPU really cool
Looks great
Easy to install
Fan still going strong after 6 months of use
Comes with rubber studs for fan
Good quality
Cons Minimum fan speed is 1600RPM even with the adapter
For AMD, only top-down configuration, thus possibly blocking memory slots if you have a small mobo

Summary

Keeps my FX6100 cool k around 33C on idle, and 46C under load. This is with a lower RPM fan that I'm using, as the stock one runs at 1600RPM and is fairly loud (wind noise). The fan itself is quiet, no clicking noise, no buzzing, etc.

Overall, good quality fan. Heatsink is very sturdy. After installation, which was very easy, the HSF does not wiggle.

Comes with rubber studs for fan installation, so it reduces vibrations. Also looks better. The fan comes with a sleeved cable.

If you have an AMD setup, it only installs top-down, meaning the wind goes up and down, not side to side. This makes it difficult to access the memory slots, especially if you have a small mobo. I have a full-sized ATX board, so it doesn't bother me much, and it does help pull the heat away from the videocard, LOL.

Pros

-Great cooling capacity
-Fan has option to reduce speed (and noise of fan)
Cons -Thermal paste was iffy
-HUGE

Summary

All in all, I am not going to complain about this cooler. It works great, i7-3770k OC to 4.4ghz (stock voltage) running at ~25 degrees. However, the fins did manage to cut me multiple times when I tried to remove RAM sticks, plug in the CPU fan, case fans, etc. because of how HUGE this fan is. Beware that it will not fit in most Mid-tower cases.

Pros

Low Price
Easy to install
Fit Socket 775
Cons Thermal Paste included seems cheap

Summary

I buy this for and old E8400 Core2Duo that I wanted to overclock a little bit. The temp are very low now. The mounting system is easy to install too.

Pros

cheap, quiet
Cons limited effects

Summary

this is a good and cheap cpu cooling fan. it's quiet as well. if you dont want to overlock too much this would be a good choice.

Pros

free
well packaged
sturdy
easy to install
fan resistor
Cons none

Summary

This cooler is absolutely fantastic, no to mention that I got it for free. The only complain is that the fan is a bit loud even with the fan speed reducer, so I had to upgrade to a more silent fan which is not a big deal. I am running a 3570K and I am able to run with the fan completely off, I adjusted Ai suite so that the fan will kick in when CPU reaches 30C, even in some games the fan remains off which is quite impressive.

Comment: For a mainstream cooler the Corsair A50 did an exceptional job, and while it couldn’t quite match the cooling performance of the higher-end heatsinks it does have a better price to performance ratio than that of the more expensive offerings.
