Corsair A500 Dual Fan CPU Cooler Review

Today we will be showing you guys the Corsair A500. Are you getting tired of AIO’s? Well if you are and want something unique we have a new CPU cooler to show you guys today. What’s great about an air cooler is the simple install. All you have to do is pop in the back plate tighten a few screws and your good to go (well for most but I have seen some real doozies in mounting systems). That isn’t the case with this cooler. Just from the research I can tell I am going to enjoy this mounting system. It is pretty similar to another mounting system that is one of the easiest to use. This cooler also has a huge surface area to dissipate the heat. With that I hope we don’t run into clearance issues. I think Corsair anticipated this because there is one feature on this cooler that is meant to counter that problem. I wont give out any spoilers so keep scrolling through the pages to find out what they may be!

Bring your CPU temperatures down with the Corsair A500 high Performance Dual fan CPU cooler, taking advantage of four direct-contact copper heat pipes to cool CPUs up to 250W TDP. Two Corsair Ml120 PWM magnetic levitation bearing fans run between 400 RPM for ultra-quiet operation or 2, 400 RPM for extreme cooling performance. An intuitive Slide-and-lock fan mounting system accommodates most RAM designs, while the easy-to-install Corsair holdfast retention system ensures a secure and reliable fit on almost all modern AMD & Intel CPUs. With pre-applied Corsair XTM50 high Performance thermal paste and a five-year warranty for peace of mind, The A500 will help unlock your CPU’s potential.
