Corsair announced big pricecuts for the A50 and A70 processor coolers it launched roughly a half year ago. The MSRP of the A50 drops from $49.99 to $44.99, while the A70 gets a $15 drop to $54.99.
The new MSRP on the Corsair A70 is $54.99, which is a drop of $15 or over 21%. The MSRP on the Corsair A50 got slashed by $5 or just 10%. We would expect the new street price on these coolers to be around $39.99 for the A50 and $49.99 for the A70. A quick look at PriceGrabber shows the Corsair A70 selling for $64.99 shipped and the A50 selling for $49 shipped before a $10 mail-in-rebate. We can only hope retailers reduce the price of the coolers while the $10 rebate is still active as an A70 CPU Cooler for $40 would be nice.
