Corsair A115 CPU Cooler Review

Final Thoughts

As I mentioned in the beginning of this review Corsair has not released an air cooler since 2020 and it makes you wonder as this is a great high-end cooler. Getting right into performance this cooler sits at the top of our test group in both idle and load tests. In the load tests it is actually tied with the Cooler Master MasterAir MA824 Stealth which we recently reviewed. This is quite impressive if you look at the range of air coolers in our test group. If anything this cooler was slightly louder than others, but nothing to really be concerned about.

When it comes to installation the cooler was quite easy to get installed. This has a lot to do with Corsair’s ratcheting fan mount system that allows you to easily remove the center fan so you can secure the cooler on your CPU socket. It is also really impressive that Corsair was able to slim down this design from what we saw on their A500 cooler. It is worth noting that this cooler will completely cover your memory slots and you may even need to move the front fan up a bit if you have larger modules. You definitely need to keep this in mind as the height of the cooler is 164.8mm and you will exceed that if you need to move the front fan up.

I think that if you are looking for a high performance air cooler in 2024 the A115 has to be in the conversation with the likes of Cooler Master, Noctua, and Deepcool. Corsair will be selling this cooler for $99.99, which is the same as many other high-end coolers. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Corsair A115 CPU Cooler a 9 out of 10 score.
