GELID debuts Polar 1U low profile CPU cooler

GELID Solutions has announced a new CPU cooler called Polar 1U. Designed for HTPCs, panel PCs, car PCs and 1U servers, the Polar 1U features a low profile and offers a heat sink with a height of just 27 mm, which means it will fit in most slim low profile cases, not to mention you won’t have problems with RAM memory modules.

Despite its small size the Polar 1U comes with improved cooling performance thanks to an enhanced heatsink fin configuration. The heatsink houses a silent 75 mm frameless fan with intelligent GELID PWM (Pulse Width Module) control and with specially optimized fan blades the fan offers high airflow at just 1400 rpm. When temps go high, the intelligent fan control unit accelerates the fan and makes it go faster; in other cases the fan spins slowly and hardly makes any noise. In addition to this the Polar 1U comes with award-winning high performance GC-2 thermal compound that is pre-applied on the heatsink. The fan is compatible with all LGA 1156, LGA 1155 and LGA 1150 Intel Celeron, Pentium, Core i3 and Core i5 processors with TDP of 65 watts and thanks to its low profile design weighs just 127 grams.

The new GELID Polar 1U sells now for USD 14 or EUR 12 depending on where you live and comes with a 5-year warranty. The cooler also conforms to RoHS and WEEE.
