I don't believe those two compare at all. Not that I've seen a direct comparison. Though in user reveiws on the 212+ it performs pretty well. Whereas the A 50 doesn't fair so well.
example. i7 930/ 4.2/ 1.35v

I'd be more inclined to point out that the A-70's after rebate price is usually pretty competitive to the 212+ ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181011
) . Rebates suck though and the Corsair fans are pretty mediocre. Performance wise you get alot for the buck though, Plus the mounting system and fan mounting for push pull is first rate.
