Review: Seven heatpipes did the trick

 

 

Gelid Solutions was founded in 2008 and this relatively new company still focuses on cooling solutions. So far, we had a chance to test several Gelid Solutions’s CPU coolers but the GX-7 exceeded all our expectations. The GX-7 climbed to the top of the table, proving that the innovative seven heatpipe design was right on the money.

The GX-7’s heatsink seems a bit futuristic but it’s designed in a way to allow for unobstructed airflow around the heatpipes. Good news is that the GX-7 comes with the very efficient Wing 12 PL fan with four blue LEDs that glow more at higher rpm. The Wing 12 PL spins between 600 and 1800rpm, meaning that it can be very quiet as well as loud depending on the aforementioned rpm.

The results clearly show that Gelid Solutions did a great job and the GX-7 can proudly sit among its high-end competitors. The GX-7 is available at €45 here.
