Gelid Antarctica can cool any chip out there
The maker of various cooling solutions Gelid has added a new CPU cooler to its product list. The new cooler is called Antarctica and comes with five heat pipes. The main feature of the new CPU cooler is that it can cool chips with TDP of up to 220 watts, which means any modern CPU out there will be properly cooled with the new Gelid Antarctica.
The new CPU cooler measures 74 x 140 x 160 mm for total weight of 635 grams. These dimensions include the aforementioned five copper nickel-plated heat pipes and an aluminum heat sink that seems surprisingly small for the capabilities of this cooler. A 140 mm fan cools the entire structure and thanks to the installed PWM fan control, the fan spins at 450-1500 rpm pushing up to 80.6 CFM of air at noise levels of up to 27.8 dB. Not bad!
The Gelid Antarctica is fully compatible with all Intel LGA 775, 1155, 1156, 1366, 1150, 1151 and 2011 processors as well as all AMD AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1 and FM2 chips. The best part is that you have to pay just EUR 37 for the cooler and this price includes a 5-year warranty too!
