GELID Launches SlimHero Silent Low-Profile CPU Cooler

Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions unveils the SlimHero which is a low profile CPU Cooler of its SILENT product line. The SlimHero features 4 sintered power heatpipes with a silent and slim 120 mm fan. The copper heatpipes ensure maximum heat transfer from CPU to the aluminum fins.

The low profile cooler SlimHero is especially designed for compact PC cases where space can be the key problem. With a total height of 5.9 cm this cooler can fit almost all smaller cases and is able to cool up to 136W (TDP).

The heatsink is bundled with a silent and slim 120mm fan with high airflow. The fan comes with an intelligent PWM control which allows users to set the fan speed in their BIOS accordingly.

The cooler is compatible to Intel 775/ 1155/ 1156/ 1366 (LGA 1155) and AMD AM2/ AM2+/AM3/
AM3+/ FM1/ FM2 sockets, is RoHS and WEEE conform and has warranty of 5 years. "A Mini-PC provides entertainment in today's living room and a powerful but silent low profile cooler such as the SlimHero makes it happen," says VC Tran, Marketing Director of GELID Solutions.

The SlimHero is now available and has a MSRP of USD 32 or Euro 25.

The shaping of the heatpipes looks like it will have fewer clearance issues than other low profile coolers.
