Today we have the opportunity to checkout Corsair’s new line of CPU coolers. Corsair has two different series of CPU coolers: the Air Series and the Hydro Series. We have a chance to check out the Air Series A50, which is mainly designed to out beat entry-level and stock CPU coolers. This is the first ever CPU cooler from Corsair that we’ve reviewed here at ThinkComputers, so let’s take a look further into Corsairs’ investments into CPU Cooling.

The Corsair A50 comes in a high quality retail box. The theme of the packaging is the main black background with standard text for their CPU coolers. However the Air Series (A50, A70) include brown coloring around the packaging while the Hydro Series includes a blue coloring. On the back of the package are some brief details about the cooler in multiple languages.
The sides of the box go more into detail and include the specifications and features of the cooler.
The A50 comes well protected by a large piece of soft foam. The fan and all of the other necessary hardware is packaged in a plain white box, included with the A50.
