Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The main assembly of the A50 is comprised of forty-five, 0.4mm thick fins. The top fin is painted black while the rest are exposed aluminum, but all of them are embossed with a Corsair logo. In straight alignment, there are three, 8mm heatpipes that pass from the base up into both sides of the fins. At the base there is an aluminum support that keeps the pipes in line while making direct contact to the processor. Coming in at just under 160mm tall, it is going to require a good sized case to reside in, but it is only 82mm wide with the fan and shroud in place, so it should not cause issues with our memory.
Included with the A50 is a model CF12B25H12A, 120mm fan. It is an all black fan that comes pre-attached to a clip-on shroud for easy attachment and maintenance. The fan is then isolated from the shroud with rubber fan mounts to keep any excess noises at bay during operation. This fan is capable of achieving speeds of 2000 RPM without the resistor and 1600 RPM maximum if you do use the adapter. At 2000 RPM the fan will produce 60 CFM of airflow with 2.3mm of water in static pressure. Keeping things cool under full load, the fan should be what you are used to with a 120mm fan. The 31.5 dBA rating is right in the middle of what we have seen up to now.
Corsair has had a bit of time now to deliver products to e-tailers and even some retail outlets as well. First off, there is the wallet friendly pricing. The cooler can be found at a cash and carry price, before taxes, of $34.99, but local taxes do apply. If you would rather sit in the comfort of your home and make the purchase, there is a comparable pricing at $39.99 at Newegg.com. There is a $3.99 shipping price to include with that. With an almost ten dollar difference it may make you think of driving to the local box store, but for the cost of a gallon or two of gas, you can wait and have one dropped right on your doorstep.
