Excerpt: In the minds of most tech enthusiasts, Corsair is a brand name synonymous with computer memory. They are a major player in the high-performance memory market and have been for a long time. Corsair has since diversified its product portfolio and are also now well known for flash memory, power supplies and solid state drives. In the past couple of years, Corsair also ventured into the CPU cooler market.
Excerpt: Corsair's A50 CPU cooler is an excellent cooling solution for the user who wishes to upgrade from the OEM cooler for quieter operation and more overclocking headroom. Corsair positions the A50 as an upgrade to the OEM cooler and not as a premium, maximum-effort air cooler.
Summary: Simple and effective. This is the best description for the Corsair A50. Its design is very usual and conservative for current standards, and our first thought was "what a common cooler". As its price is close to most mainstream coolers, we thought it would perform like a mainstream product. However, its performance was more like a top-shelf cooler: it kept our CPU just six degrees Celsius hotter than the best CPU cooler we reviewed to date.
Excerpt: It used to be that when someone mentioned the name Corsair, most people would think of memory as the only product that they were well known for. Over time thy branched out a bit and started delivering a quality built power supply and they're still a leader in that respect. Fast forward to more recent times and we find Corsair is developing products in both cases and CPU cooling.
The Corsair A50 wasn’t really designed to be optimal in terms of high-end cooling competition, but it was rather designed to beat out stock and entry-level CPU coolers. I have to say that the Corsair A50 included one of the most pleasant fan installations I have ever experienced. I’ve reviewed many CPU coolers and this is the first CPU cooler to get the fan installation RIGHT. (Well besides to having the fans pre-installed).
Pros: – Easily beats out stock and entry level coolers, – Easy installation, – Great fan installation/design, – Decent cooling
Corsair A70 e A50 : due dissipatori multipiattaforma dedicati all'overclock
7 October 2010
Summary: Eccoci giunti al nostro verdetto: i dissipatori ad aria Corsair si sono rivelati due ottime soluzioni, molto efficaci e con degli ingombri complessivi abbastanza contenuti. Certamente, una delle prerogative più importanti per entrambi i dissipatori è la facilità di montaggio, caratteristica sempre più presente in ogni elemento di cooling prodotto da Corsair; la semplicità di utilizzo ci ha permesso di allestire la nostra macchina per i test in poco più di dieci minuti.
Summary: Nok en gang ser vi at Corsair gjør det godt med sine nylanseringer. A50 er en av de første luftkjølerne de har lansert, og dette er på ingen måte et dumt produkt. Kjøleren leverer helt streit ytelse og den koster akkurat hva den smaker. Det er derimot slik at den mangler den siste lille piffen som kunne ha skilt dette produktet ut fra mengden. Forstå meg rett, vi ser overhode ikke på dette som en dårlig kjøler i noen sammenheng.
