Games Convention 08: Silent and gamer versions
GELID has decided to show its first coolers at this year's Games Convention in Lepzig. GELID decided to start with two products, one from each series. The Silent is aimed at enthusiasts that put an emphasis on low noise and want their system to be cool and silent at the same time. The Gamer series will aim at pure power, size and looks without anything else in mind rather than pure performance.
The first one is a part of GELID's Silent series and this one should end up a bit better than the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, at least according to the guys from GELID. This cooler has four heatpipes connected, which are soldered to the copper core and connected to the aluminum heatsink. The heatsink is cooled by Gelid's Silent series PWM cooler. GELID's new Silent series CPU cooler should also end up cheaper than the AC's similar Freezer 7 Pro.
The second one looks a lot like ThermalRight's Ultra 120 cooler, but when paired with GELID's gamer line green fans it should end up pretty good. It uses five heatpipes which are soldered to the copper base in combination with a large heatsink. The heatsink is cooled by Gelid's gamer line green fans which unfortunately weren't there, but we are sure that it will look much better with a fan on it.
Here are some pictures of these two new CPU coolers.
