GELID today announced the availability of an optional mounting kit for its flagship Silent Spirit CPU cooler. The mounting kit provides compatibility for Intel's new LGA 1366 socket for the Core i7 series processors. The kit consists of two retention brackets with push-pins. The brackets are attached to the cooler in the same way in which the LGA 775 brackets are. While upcoming stocks of the Silent Spirit could optionally bundle these brackets, existing users could purchase these brackets if they wish to retain the cooler when upgrading to the newer socket. The GELID LGA 1366 mounting kit is priced at US $4.99 or €3.99.
