GELID Intros Tranquillo Rev. 2 CPU Cooler

GELID today announced a revision of its Tranquillo CPU cooler. Revision 2 of this aluminum fin tower-type cooler comes with three major changes, an updated heat pipe profile; a new AMD socket clip that allows 4x 90° installation; and an improved heatsink shape. To begin with, the four exposed-copper heat pipes project out of the fanned out better, with the heat pipes almost reaching the periphery of each of the fins. Next, a new AMD socket clip allows you to orient the heatsink in the same way you can with the square bolt layout of Intel sockets (90° in any direction). Lastly, in the space between the CPU base and the bottom of the aluminum fin stack, GELID put a larger heatsink than the one found on the original Tranquillo. The Tranquillo Rev. 2 is certified to work on Intel sockets LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA1155, and LGA775; AMD sockets AM3, AM2+, and AM2. The company did not give out pricing information, but usually revised SKUs carry the same market prices as the originals they're revisions of.

Gelid Unveils GX-7 CPU Heatsink

At the CeBIT event, Gelid showed off its latest CPU cooler, the GX-7. This medium-sized aluminum fin tower-type CPU heatsink makes use of over 40 aluminum fins to which heat is conveyed by as many as seven copper heat pipes (probably in multi-layer stacks at the base). Ventilation is care of two Gelid Wing 12 fans in push-pull configuration, with 1500 RPM speeds. The cooler supports all modern socket types, including LGA1366, LGA1155/LGA1156, LGA775, and AM3/AM2+/AM2.

GELID Introduces Icy Vision Rev. 2 Cooler, Supports GeForce GTX 460 and GTS 450 GPUs

Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions has launched the 2nd revision of its multi-award winning VGA Cooler “ICY VISION” of its GAMER product line. In comparison to the previous edition the “2nd rev. of ICY VISION” is now compatible to NVIDIA's promising GTS 450 & GTX 460 card. The “Rev. 2 ICY VISION” cooler contains 5 power heatpipes in a unique heatpipe constellation. The heatpipes are interlaced into 85 optimized high-quality Aluminium fins. Together with a flat stack fin soldered Copper base, they enable the most efficient heat transmission and dissipation from GPU core in its class.

Besides the heatsink, two 92mm UV-reactive fans with 11 blades in S-shape generate 20% more air flow than traditional fans. The fan contains a high-quality ball bearing to ensure a longer lifetime in high temperature environments. The “Rev. 2 ICY VISION” is both CrossFire and SLI compatible on a number of cards. Screws were optimized to enable a proper SLI in the 2nd revision. To ensure a better cooling more RAM and Voltage Regulator Module (VRM) heatsinks are created to cool down the components around the GPU. The high performance GC-2 thermal compound is also included in the package.

GELID Introduces Wing 14 UV Blue Case Fan

Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions launches their first 140mm silent UV reactive waterproof blue case fan with multi-award winning unique Nanoflux bearing technology. The WING 14 UV Blue (140mm case fan) was added to the series of multi-award winning WING 8, 9 and 12 UV Blue. Matching the other WING fans this fan is created especially for gamers and modders and features a unique Nanoflux bearing whose motor bearing is not only water - and dustproof but also allows the impeller to be removed for cleaning. The 11 fan blades with additional winglet design were created to achieve an airflow of approx. 80CFM by a fan speed of 1200 RPM. The fan also enables a great static pressure and is UV reactive. Even the slightest vibrations generated by the running fan will be absorbed by 4 Anti-vibration fan mounts which are provided in addition to traditional screws. Further a fan speed reduction cable is included in the package to lower the fan speed to a super silent 900 RPM.

LED lights in green or blue color were added to the WING 12 PL to give the fan a specific color.

GELID Announces Tranquillo - 4 Heatpipes CPU Cooler

Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions unveils its multi-compatible CPU Cooler “Tranquillo” of its SILENT product line. The mainstream tower CPU Cooler “Tranquillo” uses 4 power heat pipes and a special heat pipe constellation to achieve best heat transfer from CPU core to the aluminium fins in its class. After precise software simulation and calculation during the development stage a unique heat sink shape was created to lower air flow resistance as much as possible.

A silent 120mm fan with the intelligent GELID PWM (Pulse Width Module) control has been chosen to make this heat sink more valuable. The fan blades were optimised to guarantee high airflow while running silently. The intelligent GELID PWM curve keeps the fan silent when no necessary cooling is needed and accelerates the fan speed whenever additional cooling is needed. The multi-award winning high performance GC-2 thermal compound is already included in the package. Additionally mounting clips for AMD 754/ 939/ 940/ AM2/ AM2+ and for Intel 775, 1366 and latest 1156 sockets as same as back plates for Intel LGA 775, Core i5 and Core i7 boards are all included.

GELID Announces WING 12 UV Blue - Multipack

The multi-award winning 120mm GELID WING 12 UV Blue case fan for gamers and modders featuring a unique Nanoflux bearing is now available in a 4 pcs - multipack. The motor bearing is not only water - and dustproof but also allows the impeller to be detached for cleaning. The fan blades winglets were designed to achieve larger airflow, greater static pressure and are UV reactive. Beside the 4 fans the set includes 16 mounting screws and two 4 Pin Molex cables.

The patented Nanoflux bearing (NFB) incorporates a clever magnetic design, very high precision manufacturing and runs friction-free and operates noiseless. Electromagnetic fields are exploited to keep solid parts from touching. The load is carried by a magnetic field. The Nanotechnology composite ensures lowest abrasion and extreme durability (MTBF 100,000 hours). Compared to other magnetic bearings this technology allows the impeller to be detached and thus the fan blades can be cleaned easily. The nano-composite material is self lubricating and even waterproof. Compared to sleeve and ball bearing the high precision self-lubricated material of GELID’s Nanoflux bearing eliminates oil leakage.
