Gelid Rev.2 GX-7 CPU cooler is out

Posted on Monday, May 20 2013 @ 14:32:11 CEST by

Gelid introduces the Rev.2 GX-7, a CPU cooler with a copper base, seven 6mm heatpipes, a large aluminium fin array and a Slim 12 PL Blue LED PWM fan that spins at 750 - 1800RPM, it produces an airflow of 57.9 to 98.5CFM with a noise level ranging from 12 to 28dBA. The cooler measures 130mm x 65mm x 159mm and weighs 720g (incl. fan). Gelid's Rev.2 GX-7 has a MSRP of $65 (45EUR)
allows for better RAMsink clearance and even easier installation. The Slim 12 PL Blue has a Hydro Dynamic bearing and a dimension of 120x120x15.8 mm. In addition the fan features blue LED’s. The fan also includes a premium PWM control, so the temperature can be controlled precisely by the BIOS. Further high-end GCExtreme thermal compound is included in the package.

Design Concept:
Traditional heat pipe arrangement of high-end heatsink heatpipes are usually soldered on one row. Therefore the heat absorption capacity of the outer heatpipe will be negatively affected when there are more than 5 heatpipes.

To solve this problem a special array of heatpipes was used on Rev. 2 GX-7 to take full advantage of all 7 6mm heatpipe heat transfer capacity. On Rev. 2 GX-7 two heatpipes were soldered on top of three middle heatpipes.

Air Flow Concept:
The fins in the middle part of the heatsink of Rev. 2 GX-7 were designed in a V-shape. This allows the cooling air to reach the heatsink module more evenly. Thanks to some openings inside of the heatsink and near the heatpipes let fresh-air flows in from the top and the bottom to zones normally poorly ventilated and eliminates the creation of hotspots from building. The unique heatsink shape supports dual fans.

Besides the multi-award winning high performance GC-Extreme thermal compound additionally mounting clips for AMD AM2/ AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/ FM2 and Intel 775, 1366, 1155, 1156 sockets and back plates for Intel LGA 775, Core i5 and Core i7 boards are all included. The LGA 2011 mounting clip needs to be purchased separately.
