Gelid Solutions has designed the Silent Spirit, a top-flow CPU cooler, to be silent and to perform better than retail boxed CPU coolers. The open frame structure that is set to a unique orientation angle is said to be best for airflow. Read on to see if this cooler runs silent and cools as the corporate site says it does.
The latest trend in heatsink design has been to add more heatpipes, add more fins, and make everything wider and taller. GELID's Silent Spirit flips this concept on its side with a small heatsink with an unusual design and unique fin shape. With a 100mm fan spinning on average around 1600RPM, 46 max CFM, and only 370g of material, the Silent Spirit hopes to pack a lot of punch in a very light frame. It weighs less than half of the popular Thermalright Ultra 120, clears every motherboard I could mount it to, and is silent to boot.
