Gelid has revised its Slim Silence AM2 CPU-cooler, which originated from 2010. The new Slim Silence A-Plus is compatible with all AMD sockets and has been kept as small as possible. This makes the cooler suited for Mini-ITX systems and HTPCs, as well as car computers and 1U servers. Its dimensions are 10.5 x 7.5 x 2.8 cm (L*W*H).
The CPU cooler has two heatpipes which transfer heat onto an aluminium heatsink. A 65 mm PWM fan is used to remove excess heat. The fan ranges in speed between 1200 and 2600 RPM, while displacing up to 20 CFM at a 27.2 dB(A) sound production. Thanks to its ball bearings, the fan has a life expectancy of at least 50.000 hours. Gelid provides five years of warranty with its cooler.
Gelid's Slim Silence A-Plus will be available shortly and has a recommended price of €19.99 (£16).
