Corsair A500 Air CPU Cooler and iCUE RGB PRO XT Liquid CPU Coolers Debut at CES 2020

CORSAIR, a world leader in high-performance gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today launched a range of new additions to its lineup of high-performance CPU coolers, able to handle the rising temperature demands of increasingly powerful desktop processors. The A500 Dual Fan CPU Cooler utilizes a quad direct-contact heat pipe design for ultra-high heat dispersion, with a unique slide-and-lock fan mount system to adjust fan height. The iCUE RGB PRO XT Series is the latest family of CORSAIR's renowned all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, combining powerful and quiet cooling with dynamic RGB lighting in radiator sizes up to 360 mm, capable of taming the high temps of even the most thermally intensive CPUs such as the recently released 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper Series.

The A500 Dual Fan CPU Cooler is a high-performance air cooler, combining low-noise operation with dark styling and an innovative fan mounting system. Able to cool CPUs up to 250 W TDP, the A500 is equipped with four direct-contact heat pipes and two CORSAIR ML120 magnetic levitation bearing fans, controllable via PWM for precise adjustment of fan speeds between 400 RPM and 2,400 RPM. The fans sit within a ratcheting slide-and-lock fan mount, allowing for a variable fan height to accommodate a wide range of DRAM. The A500 is easy to install and stays firmly in place thanks to the CORSAIR HoldFast retention system, and is compatible with AM4, AM3, FM2, LGA115x, and LGA20xx CPUs.

Corsair Recalls Some H100i RGB Platinum SE Coolers Over Faulty Plumbing

Corsair issued a product recall notice to customers and retailers to return their Hydro Series H100i RGB Platinum SE all-in-one liquid closed-loop liquid CPU coolers, because the coolers aren't all that "closed loop." Corsair reports that coolers belonging to a particular manufacturing lot show signs of faulty seals of the tubing, which causes the coolant to leak between the tubes and sleeves. "We discovered that less than 1% of Hydro Series H100i RGB PLATINUM SE coolers sold to date are leaking small amounts of coolant into the hose sleeving. These leaks are easy to spot, as the sleeving is white, and coolant is bright green," the notice reads. To spot if your cooler is one from the bad lot, pay attention to its 12-digit serial number. Digits 5 thru 8 denote the manufacturing lot, and if it happens to read "1852," it belongs to the bad lot. Corsair invites customers with these faulty coolers to claim free replacements, including shipping.

Corsair Hydro H100i Platinum SE Liquid CPU Cooler Pictured

Corsair is giving final touches to the mostly-white Platinum SE variants of its Hydro H100-series all-in-one liquid CPU coolers. Pictured here is the H100i Platinum SE, a variant of the original Platinum H100i Platinum launched last November. What's interesting is the level of whitewashing Corsair has done to the cooler. Not only is the radiator frame white, but also the radiator fins. The fiber-weave sheath around the coolant tubes are white, too. White also dominates the fan frames and impellers. There are some interesting contrasting black bits such as the main body of the pump-block, its crown, and the vibration dampening mounts, not to mention the included screws. Corsair is expected to launch these coolers on the 15th of February.

Corsair Summer Sale Open Until August 12th

Corsair has announced that they'll be having a Summer Sale as well, not being content to let Steam have all the headlines on that matter. The sale will be open until August 12th, and you can bet that you'll be able to find some pretty reasonable discounts to some of that Corsair hardware you've been oggling up to now.

Some of the standout deals are Corsair's H100i Extreme Performance CPU Liquid Cooling AIO, going for $99 (down from $129), the GPU version of the same AIO (down to the same $99 from $129), and Corsair's Lapdog control center (down to $69 from $119) for your couch-related gaming needs. There's also a selection of gaming mice, rodent pads, mechanical keyboards, and even a special edition, liquid-cooled GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. Hit the source link for some Corsair goodness (though remember, if you're not USA/CA based, you apparently have to tough it up sans discounts...)
