Gelid Solutions GX-7 CPU cooler with 7 Heatpipes tested

Review: Seven heatpipes did the trick

 

Gelid Solutions recently launched its new gaming CPU cooler dubbed the GX-7, where 7 stands for the number of heatpipes. It’s usual for coolers to have only six heatpipes, but Gelid Solutions’s engineers found a way to put in seven in limited space. The heatsink and cooler base had to be redesigned for this purpose, and today we’ll see how Gelid Solutions did that.

The GX-7 looks interesting and while it may look good in gaming rigs, we know that performance is much more important. The specs claim the cooler supports all current CPUs and sockets. For a more detailed description, refer to the next page.  

For starters, Gelid Solutions strapped its cooler with the very efficient Wing 12 PL fan. The fan comes with blue LEDs that change the intensity of lighting to reflect the rpm. The propeller can be taken out of the case, so cleaning it is easy.

Gelid Solutions backs the GX-7 with a three year warranty. Judging by the promised performance alone, the price of €45 sounds quite tasty, but we’ll know more soon.
