The A30 is a budget CPU Air cooler with a 92mm blue LED fan that is claimed to deliver quiet operation. It features 43 x 86mm aluminum fins, which ensures efficient heat transference with its large surface area.

The A40 Pro comes with a 92mm LED pulse width modulation (PWM) fan and a large aluminum heat fin structure with four embedded heat pipes for efficient heat dissipation. It carries a 25 EUR price tag.

Finally, we have the high-performance C400 cooler with a 120mm LED PWM fan with 77 CFM airflow, 8mm copper coldplate, and nickel-plated aluminum fins with four embedded heatpipes.
