Product Overview
Protect your investment in your Intel or AMD CPU, and make it run better. Excessive heat is the deadly enemy of high-performance silicon, and the Air Series A50 CPU cooler can extend your CPU’s lifetime by efficiently drawing that heat away.

You’ll get faster performance, too. Intel Core™ i5 and Core™ i7 processors automatically overclock when conditions are right. Add the A50 and your CPU will detect that it’s running cooler, and instantly boost its speed when you need it. Of course, if you’re not using a Core i5 or Core i7 or if you prefer to overclock manually, the Air Series A50 will still give you the temperature headroom you need.

You’ll see dramatically lower CPU temperatures thanks to the three 8mm copper heatpipes that efficiently draw performance-sapping heat away from the CPU and into the aluminum cooling fin array. The adjustable-speed 120mm fan runs quieter than stock CPU fans and is mounted on rubberized studs that reduce noise and vibration.

Spend 15 minutes installing the A50 and enjoy years of improved CPU performance.
• Three 8mm copper direct-contact heatpipes, for efficient heat conduction away from your CPU
• Aluminum fins make the unit compact and lightweight, for easy installation and maximum airflow
• 120mm fan with multiple speed options that let you optimize the maximum cooling and minimum noise
• Includes mounting hardware compatible with all modern CPU socket designs

Tek Spek
Chassis Airflow Cases >> Chassis Airflow The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke. Read Further >> AMD 64 Processors CPUs >> AMD 64 Processors This TekSpek explains what AMD’s AMD64 CPU instruction set architecture (ISA) is, shows what CPUs implement it from both AMD and Intel, and explains what software is available to run on those 64-bit consumer processors. Read Further >> AMD AM2 CPUs >> AMD AM2 The purpose This TekSpek quickly and easily explains AMD’s new processor socket and related technology to the reader, comparing it to AMD’s previous socket types. Read Further >> Core 2 CPUs >> Core 2 There’s been a lot of hype about Intel’s Core 2 recently, even since they launched Core in fact. Words like Conroe, Badaxe and Allendale have been flying around. The bottom line is that Core 2 is the name of Intel’s latest line of CPUs, based on a new micro-architecture, designed for speed and efficiency. Read Further >> Cores CPUs >> Cores Over the course of the last year or so we’ve seen GHz become less of a focus when it comes to processors. Instead, we’re seeing a shift towards processors that do more work per clock, have larger caches, are more power efficient, and of course we’ve seen dual-core processors hit the market. So what is dual-core all about, and how does it weigh up compared to single-core? Read Further >> CPU Codes CPUs >> CPU Codes It’s been a long time since MHz were the only part of a CPU’s specification that concerned people. Manufacturers take different approaches to CPU design, even when using the same architecture. That means for example, at the same clock speed, an Intel and AMD processor will deliver different performance. Read Further >> Intel Branding Part I CPUs >> Intel Branding Part I Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively. Read Further >> Intel Branding Part II CPUs >> Intel Branding Part II Intel has plans for a new brand structure that it claims will be less confusing for customers. In this TekSpek we'll take a look at Inte's proposals and speculate on its future line-up of processors. Read Further >> Intel Core 2 Duo (Conroe) CPUs >> Intel Core 2 Duo (Conroe) The purpose of this TekSpek is to delineate the publicly known features of Intel’s next generation desktop microarchitecture. Codenamed Conroe and officially titled Intel Core 2 Duo, it’s loosely based on the current mobile Yonah (Core Duo) underpinnings. Read Further >> Intel Lynnfield CPUs CPUs >> Intel Lynnfield CPUs Intel launched the consumer-oriented Core i7 900-series processors back in November 2008, and the chip giant has known that it's been on to a winner with Nehalem, the codename for the underlying architecture. This is the reason we've seen little innovation on Core i7, and pricing has remained relatively steady since launch. Read Further >> Intel Nehalem Family CPUs >> Intel Nehalem Family This TekSpek gives a brief overview Intel's new ' Nehalem’ generation of Central Processing Units (CPUs). Read Further >> Intel’s 45nm technology CPUs >> Intel’s 45nm technology This TekSpek discusses Intel’s 45nm process technology. What it is, what it provides, and how it benefits the consumer. Read Further >> Overclocking GPU - Graphics >> Overclocking This TekSpek explains why you’d want to overclock your graphics board, the risks in doing so and how you can go about doing it. Read Further >> Intel Green Computing Guides >> Intel Green Computing Green is one of the biggest buzz words these days, and even computer manufacturers are getting involved in trying to be kinder to the environment. While the first thing that may spring to mind when you think of 'green computing' is simply using less electricity, there's a lot more to it than that. Read Further >> DDR3 Memory >> DDR3 This TekSpek explains what DDR3 is, how it works, where you’ll find it, and what it means to the consumer. Read Further >> System Noise Reduction Sound >> System Noise Reduction Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise. Read Further >>
