DeepCool Gives Birth to Gabriel CPU Cooler

DeepCool has announced a new CPU cooler that will be named 'Gabriel.' It is a low profile CPU cooler, and thus intended for more cramped enclosures. As the image from the press release indicates, it is for use in smaller systems.

Gabriel features a 120 mm fan that can spin at speeds ranging from 900 RPM to twice that. At 1800 RPM it'll make no more than 32.4 dBA of noise. In it's entirety, the cooler weighs around 426 grams. The combination of everything gives Gabriel the power to cool down CPUs with TDPs of up to 100 W.

The entity will have support for most modern CPU sockets, including AMD's FM2 and AM3+ sockets, as well as Intel's new LGA1150 socket. Gabriel will be available for purchase starting in November, though no price tag was given.

    They should design that the CPU is mounted on underside of the motherboard and the fan as a motherboard tray.

    What the ... how would that work?!
    1. How would you mount the motherboard onto a fan? Yes, you could probably put certain standoff holes in the fan case but it would be way too flimsy to support a motherboard and all the components.
    2. The motherboard would block the airflow. It's basically like having a normal desk fan and holding a large piece of cardboard directly in front of it. Useless.

    I laughed a little.
