Antec A40 Pro & C400 Air Cooler Review

Both the Antec A40 Pro and the C400 coolers from Antec ship in similar-looking boxes, and each have large product images on the front.


Inside, both come with essentially identical manuals, while you also get the necessary mounting hardware plus a small tube of thermal paste.

On the left we see the A40 Pro with its smaller 92mm fan. Its total dimensions are 100 x 75 x 136 mm, and this puts it in the same size category as the be quiet! Pure Rock Slim and the Cooler Master MasterAir Pro 3. This means it is a very compact air cooler, positioned in between a low-profile cooler and a more standard cooler like the Hyper 212 EVO.

That leaves the C400 on the right, and this comes with a pre-installed 120mm fan which, incidentally, sports integrated blue LEDs. It is also a fair big bigger than its cheaper counterpart, measuring 155 x 125 x 76 mm, and this makes it a direct rival to likes of the Cryorig H7 and the Hyper 212 EVO.

Both coolers feature 4 copper heatpipes, though, as well as smart-looking top-plates which definitely helps with the aesthetic side of things.

    Master air pro 4 is a heatsink with 12cm fan. While antec a40 pro is only equipped with a 9cm fan. How can the performance be so identical?

    Many more variables to this, fin density and length for example, also at 1.3V you don’t actually max out the heat that 4 heatpipes can carry so there is that…
