Gelid Solutions SnowStorm Quiet CPU Cooler

Offering great value for money and compatibility with Intel and AMD CPUs, the Gelid SnowStorm is an ideal low cost quiet replacement for a stock cooler.

Features

  1. Three Power Heatpipes with Direct Touch Technology
  2. Unique fin architecture
  3. 92mm quiet fan with Intelligent PWM Control
  4. Five year warranty
  5. AMD and Intel compatible

Gelid’s SnowStorm is built with a unique fin architecture which distributes airflow evenly into the heatsink. Thanks to its three high power heatpipes with Direct Touch technology (HDT), this compact cooler achieves unexpected cooling performance. Its compact size makes it light and with the metal back plate, the mount is much secure than with a traditional mounting. The 92mm fan contains an intelligent PWM fan controller which ensures very quiet operation at low CPU temperatures and efficient fan speed acceleration when the temperature climbs higher.

Customer Reviews

Gelid Snowstorm

,

The Gelid Snowstorm is inexpensive, made of all metal and copper construction. The 92mm fan supplied and pre-fitted is silent running. Both internal and CPU temperatures have dropped by 3c using the relatively old Pentium D 950 processor in my PC running at 130watt. Good news that is has never overheated again. The instructions supplied are straightforward and once installed it is secure and solid. It fitted onto the Micro ATX motherboard in my 10 year old HP Media Centre PC, therefore a good choice if price and space are important although be prepared, it is easy to install once the motherboard is removed, but it is a difficult upgrade to achieve, but given the asking price it is worth the effort with the end results. Indeed a satisfied customer, here’s to another ten years I say. ;-)

“I’ve always built my own PC’s”

“I’ve always built my own PC’s, but this time around I figured I’d buy a ready made. I was a little apprehensive, but after working out the cost of the components I’d be paying not a lot more to have it built, shipped and warranted.

I gave Quiet PC a try and am so glad I did.

I’m not a gamer and wanted a fast and silent PC to do development work on. A fast process, disk and lots of memory is required for virtual machines and compiling code. So I went for the fastest i9 I could.

When it arrived - earlier than expected, I powered it on and installed my OS etc. I discovered that my monitors wouldn’t stay on. I was using a power saving plug that turns my monitors on only when my PC is on. This new PC draws so little power the energy saving plug doesn’t detect it’s on!

It’s so strange that it sits there totally silent. It’s actually difficult to tell if it’s on.

When I opened the case (no screws required) to install my WiFi card the inside was so tidy I was very impressed. Compared to my old rats nest of wires in the old PC this is almost bare.

A very satisfied customer. Well done Quiet PC.”
