Gelid Solutions ICY VGA cooler

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Any opinions on this product?

Seems decently priced for around $50, and it looks like it will fit my non-reference XFX 5850 PCB.

It's got 5 heatpipes, triple-slot heatsink, and dual fans. Looks like a pretty decent cooler.

I don't know though...the non-reference cooler on my XFX-585X-ZAFC is already pretty beefy. I can see the heatpipes and the size of the heatsink inside the housing, so I'm concerned this Gelid heatsink wouldn't decrease temps by much.

True...but it is slightly larger than my current non-reference stock cooler. It looks like this Gelid heatsink takes up 3 slots. Then again though, just because it's small doesn't necessarily mean it is a bad performer.

Remember, the ICY vision runs at a max of 26db which is quiet. REALLY quiet.
