Gelid Black Edition Heatsink Review - Gelid Black Edition Heatsink Review
Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 2:37PM | Filed under: Cooling / Heatsinks| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Gelid continue the asymmetrical design approach on the heatpipe front as well; 'the Black Edition' heatsink makes use of three 8mm diameter and four 6mm diameter heatpipes to conduct heat energy from the heatsinks' chunky copper base plate. Furthermore, two of the 6mm diameter heatpipes are stacked above the rest. The seven heatpipes intersect the aluminum fins in a long line, which explains why two fans are required to drive cool air through 'the Black Edition's' cooling fins.
For adventurous computer enthusiasts seeking new and innovative heatsinks, Gelid's 'the Black Edition' heatsink offers pretty good cooling performance with a modest noise output at stock fan speeds. Gelid's 'the Black Edition' heatsink is compatible with Intel socket LGA2011/1366/1155/1156/775 processors and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 CPUs/APUs. Retail price is pegged at around $75 bucks.
