Default Gelid Solutions Silent Spirit CPU Cooler Review comment thread

Its that time again! This time we are taking a look at a cooler from a company which you probably never hear of. To any of you Arctic Cooling fans out there the name Gebhard Scherrer should ring a few bells...after all he was one of the guys who started AC back in '01! Well today he is at it again, this time starting a company called "Gelid" ; and they gave us their Silent Spirit Air based CPU cooling solution to put through the ringer!

You can read my review here: Silent Spirit

Hope you enjoy it!

Just finished reading through the review, you make some great points. If your looking for silence on a budget, this is a great one to consider, but otherwise its performance seems a bit lack luster.

Great review either way!

Not too bad of a cooler, and a nice review off course.

Does better than the Dur Orb at least. A few more tweaks would probably make it better. Nonetheless a good entry in the Cooling industry, but your right for less than $10 you can get a much better HDT cooler.

Great review AkG
