The GX-7 tackles cooling with good intentions and reasonable battle plan and in practice finishes on average with other 2011 coolers neighboring its price point. GELID has included some nice value equipping the cooler with one of their Wing 12 PL PMW...-

Gelid Solutions are a company we have worked with in the past, we reviewed their excellent Icy Vision VGA cooler. The standard, in terms of my expectations have been set high because of that product, but we won't let pre-determined ideas get in the...-

Let me start off by saying I am impressed with the performance of the Gelid GX-7. This cooler is available for $64.99 US or less and manages to come in just short of the current king in our test scenario: The Noctua NH-D14 at $89.99 US. This is when...85

GELID GX-7 didn’t prove up to our expectations and turned out just another cooler, which price is obviously set too high. If the second row of heatpipes does work, then the heatsink must be not efficient enough, because of its small surface size...-

The Gelid GX-7 came with great expectations and has delivered on build quality, design and looks. The one part where it does not quite become king is the most important; performance, however this is marginal – it is slightly behind the 70% more...-

Gelid is a company that made a nice impression a year or two ago introducing themselves by releasing their first aftermarket CPU cooler, the 'Silent Spirit' cooler. After Gelid released that Silent Spirit and then Tranqillo CPU coolers it was...-
