Gelid Launches the SlimHero Silent Low-Profile CPU Cooler

Gelid Solutions has launched the SlimHero low profile CPU cooler that has a height of just 56 mm and features four sintered copper heatpipes and a 120 mm PWM cooling fan that together is rated for a maximum TDP of 136 W.

The CPU cooler is compatible with most recent AMD and Intel CPU sockets including AM2 / AM2+ / AM3 / AM3+ / FM1 / FM2 / 775 / 1155 / 1156 and 1366 (LGA 1155). This, combined with its form factor and cooling performance, should make the SlimHero well suited for use in HTPCs or other compact applications.

"A Mini-PC provides entertainment in today's living room and a powerful but silent low profile cooler such as the SlimHero makes it happen," says VC Tran, Marketing Director of GELID Solutions.

The Gelid SlimHero Silent Low-Profile CPU cooler is now available with an MSRP of $32 (€ 25) and is backed by a five year warranty.

    I wonder how it performs

    This is absolutely wonderful! I've had a project in mind for a while now and this may very well do the trick for a slim-profile HTPC I've been wanting to build.

    Please review this one; it looks like a good alternative for small cases.
