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...

While the Gelid GX-7 proved competent on an AMD system it was still a fair way behind the cheaper Thermolab Trinity. This, coupled with an LGA1155 performance on par with far cheaper coolers, means that there's little reason to pay any extra cash...

Apart from screwing on either the AMD or Intel fixing plates to the heatsink contact base, the rest of the mounting kit for the Gelid GX-7 comprises fitting four bolts which run through the motherboard base plate. Securing them in position with nuts...

The GX-7 heatsink is constructed around seven 6mm diameter heatpipes, but the number of heatpipes isn't what caught our attention. What's unique about the GX-7 cooler are the two heatpipes stacked on top of the five primary heatpipes....

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...

Performance Testing Temperature measurements were aquired by the MSI Dual Core Center software package. Idle temperatures were taken after the computer was left unattended for at least a half hour. Load temperatures were taken by running Prime95's...

I have never had any doubts from any Gelid products I have tested in the past but I was surprised at the performance of the GX-7. Why? Because if you take in consideration of all the new coolers currently on the market, most weigh well over 800...

Gelid Solutions recently launched its new gaming CPU cooler dubbed the GX-7, where 7 stands for the number of heatpipes. It’s usual for coolers to have only six heatpipes, but Gelid Solutions’s engineers found a way to put in seven in...

If you have not heard of Gelid Solutions yet, then you have not read my previous two reviews of Gelid products, or you're living under a large rock. Either way, Gelid has been making quite a lot of noise lately with their high-end GPU and CPU...

Quality (30% of the total score) We found the quality of the GX-7 to be more than adequate, although there is some room for improvements. The body of the cooler itself is very well made and strong, without any significant manufacturing defects, yet...

Så er det blevet tid til at komme med en konklusion af køleren. Jeg vidste faktisk ikke helt, hvad jeg skulle forvente af den, da jeg ikke havde hørt om køleren, da jeg modtog den. Dog havde jeg haft én Gelid køler til test...

Nel mercato dei dissipatori, vediamo come l'omologarsi di certe soluzioni abbia portato molte somiglianze tra le proposte dei vari produttori.L'emblema di ciò è rappresentato dalla tecnologia ad heatpipes, nella quale quest'ultime...

Quando nel mondo informatico si parla di raffreddamento, è sempre bene fare una distinzione tra due diverse scuole di pensiero. Una basata sulla ricerca delle massime prestazioni e maggiormente legata ad un mondo Enthusiast, l' altra, invece, ...

Der Gelid GX-7 ist ein Geniestreich des Kühlerherstellers. Gelid wollte auf dem Gamingmarkt mitwirken und kann dies mit dem GX-7 auch durchsetzen. Die Verarbeitung stimmt in allen Punkten und auch die Techniken sind gut durchdacht. Zusammen mit dem...

Aujourd'hui, la ferme accueille un des derniers radiateurs de GELID, le GX-7. Un modèle tour en 120mm, relativement fin, qui vise le Gamer, avec des ventilateurs bleus, et un look très sympathique, avec un petit top en plastique typé...

Der neue GX-7 bietet ein faires Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis. GELID Solutions neustes Werk bietet eine sehr gute Kühlleistung, ein sicheres Montagesystem und eine hochwertige Verarbeitungsqualität. Beim Lüfter hätte man auf ein...
