Id-Cooling Reveals IS-65 Low-Profile CPU Cooler (Fans Sold Separately)

Id-Cooling announced the IS-65, a new cooler belonging to its IS (short for Iceland) series of low profile CPU coolers. The timing is perfect, considering AMD released its Ryzen lineup not too long ago and, sure enough, the IS-65 supports AM4 as well as previous Intel and AMD sockets.

The IS-65 stands 65mm high and is compatible with 120mm fans, resulting in an approximate height of 90mm with a fan attached. Speaking of which, Id-Cooling doesn’t include a fan with the IS-65, although the company's promotional tweet illustrates the cooler with CF-12025 fans in various colors.

    Umm... 90mm (w/ fan) isn't exactly low-profile. There's an awful lot of HTPC cases that it won't fit in being that tall.

    @DStarr3, I agree, and it appears its 90mm tall for no reason. 90mm would not fit in either of my HTPCs, both of which are using Silverstone AR06 coolers.

    They could easily bring that heat sink down in closer to the CPU.

    Out of curiosity, how do you find it performs, specifically when it comes to noise?

    A lot of people with 48mm available for the CPU cooler (Dancase A4, Dr. Zaber Sentry) are finding that while its performance is good, it's very very noisy when anywhere near a case panel.

    So far so good noise levels are decent , for what it is , performs well.

    For a "low-profile" cooler, that thing is conspicuously tall. I mean, it requires a support brace to avoid flexing. Noctua's NH-L12 has two fans, and is only 3mm taller. Not to mention that it can run with just the bottom 92mm fan attached at 66mm total height ...

    I'll hold off any criticism until its released, but it seems like this would have trouble at 120w. Only 3 heatpipes and small cooling fins at 90mm or so? Why can't anyone make a decent LP cooler? It seems that the only decent LP coolers were the units that came with high wattage AMD CPUs, aftermarket units rarely do any better.

    I think they might have just labeled this a "low-profile" cooler to create an excuse for possible poor thermal performance.
