CORSAIR A50 INTRODUCTION
Corsair has been a major player in the computer memory arena, producing award winning memory products for casual users and maximum-effort performance users alike. Not content to rest on their laurels, Corsair branched out into the power supply market with some of the finest PSUs on the market. The next logical step was to enter the cooler and chassis market, which Corsair did with similar results. We've had the opportunity to look at their liquid cooling offerings in the past, but we were never able to get any of their air coolers in the lab. That's recently changed.
This time out we'll take a look at Corsair's A50 tower cooler. With three big heatpipes, a solid design and a very reasonable price, I'm anxious to see how it stacks up to the competition.
CORSAIR CORPORATE PROFILE
Corsair has been a leader in the design and manufacture of high-speed modules since 1994. Our focus has always been on supporting the special demands of mission-critical servers and high-end workstations, as well as the performance demands of extreme gamers. While maintaining this core focus, in recent years, we've also brought our expertise, technology leadership and legendary quality and reliability to memory and other technology products for the more mainstream consumer.
Corsair has expanded beyond memory modules to offer performance liquid cooling units and blocks under our Corsair Nautilus brand and power supplies under our HX Series brand. In addition, we offer a line of specialty Flash memory. From our ultra-rugged Flash Survivor™ family to the multi-award winning durable Flash Voyager™ family, Corsair has quickly established itself as an industry leader for USB drives.
