    Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, announces the Corsair Cooling Air Series A70 and A50 high-performance CPU coolers, the newest additions to Corsair’s award-winning range of cooling solutions.

    The Corsair Cooling Air Series A70 has been designed to offer exceptional cooling performance for enthusiasts who demand state-of-the-art CPU temperature management. The Air Series A70 is a great choice for enthusiasts looking to squeeze every last megahertz of performance out of their high-end Intel and AMD processors, without sacrificing low noise levels.

    The Corsair Cooling Air Series A50 is ideal for PC builders and hobbyists who want to upgrade from the stock Intel and AMD coolers. The Air Series A50 delivers significantly lower CPU temperatures than stock coolers, resulting in a cooler, quieter, and more reliable PC, with increased overclocking headroom.

    “The Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 brought a new level of performance, design, expertise, and ease of installation to the CPU cooling market. Our all–new Air Series was designed with the same goals in mind.” said Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing for Corsair. “The Air Series A50 and A70 expand our CPU cooling line with class-leading performance that satisfies not only extreme performance enthusiasts, but anyone who understands that improved CPU cooling provides additional performance and stability, as well as enhanced protection from the damage heat can cause to their CPU.”

    The Air Series A70 utilizes four direct-contact 8mm copper heat pipes, integrated into a highly-polished aluminum base placed directly on the CPU for maximum heat dissipation. Two dual-speed 120mm fans, arranged in a “Push-Pull” configuration, are attached to the all-aluminum cooling fin assembly with noise- and vibration-reducing rubber mounts. The result is superior cooling performance with minimal fan noise.

    The Corsair Cooling Air Series A50 employs a compact design with three 8mm heat pipes integrated into a base placed in direct contact with the CPU. The A50 uses a single 120mm cooling fan with rubber mounts to reduce noise and vibration.

    Both the Air Series A70 and Air Series A50 are compatible with all current CPU socket designs, including Intel LGA775, LGA1156, and LGA1366, and AMD Socket AM2 and Socket AM3.

    The Air Series A70 and A50 are supplied with a Two Year limited warranty, and are backed up by Corsair’s legendary customer service and technical support.

    Looks like another run of the mill HDT tower coolers. Hopefully the price is extremely competitive to make it stand out.

    Looks decent. Corsair has always been a great company with great products. I hope they get the pricing right this time they jump on a new bandwagon.

    I dont think they could beat my Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus at $29.99. Hopefully they wont be push pin installation.

    Bumping an old topic because I'm wondering if anyone has used these yet.

    Here are the Newegg links: A50 and A70.

    Sneeky, I saw you were selling one of each. Did you/are you going to post a review of them? Any impressions?

    the A50 reminded me of like a Xig 1283. Good for the money, but sort of meh by todays standards. That is why it is the "performance" version. Works well, just not a "ZOMG look how leet it is" cooler.

    The A70 is a different bird all together. More tricks like dimples, dual fans, one more pipe, things that make it more efficient. On my list its in the top 3 behind the new Ninja 3 with 220 CFM, and the V10. Thats out of the box! On the flip side, ram issues come into play with the much wider A70. If you got room, the A70 is the route to go;)
