Gelid Solutions Antarctica Ultra-Quiet Tower CPU Cooler

The Gelid Antarctica is an exceptionally quiet CPU cooler that provides excellent cooling thanks to the 140 PWM fan and a 3D optimised heatsink.

Features

  1. Five Power Heatpipes
  2. Quiet 140mm PWM with 120mm Mounting Holes
  3. High Airflow
  4. GC-Extreme Thermal Compound
  5. Five Year Warranty

Gelid’s Antarctica comes with a 3D optimised heatsink that offers best-in-class thermal performance. The engineers of GELID Solutions especially designed a set of five power heat pipes, aluminium fins with improved profiling and an additional smaller heatsink with a copper core. These elements provide exceptional heat transfer from the CPU to the heatsink. Both heatsinks were created using precise software simulation and calculation during the development stage to ensure efficient air flow distribution at the lowest fan speed possible. The result, the Antarctica fully supports heat transfer of TDP 220W being paired with even very low-speed, virtually noiseless fan.

A very quiet 140mm fan with the intelligent GELID PWM (Pulse Width Module) control complements the heatsink. The fan blades are optimised to deliver high air flow at low speed and the newly designed PWM IC eliminates any clicking noise. The intelligent GELID PWM curve operates the fan in an extended speed range of 450 RPM to 1500 RPM, it constantly keeps the fan quiet but accelerates whenever additional cooling is required. With two sets of fan mounts, a second fan can be installed to improve the cooler’s outstanding performance even further. Additionally, the multi-award winning high performance GC-Extreme thermal compound is included in the package.

    “The Gelid Antarctica is a successful, if a little bog-standard, new entry to the cooler market. It offers strong performance that nips at the heels of more expensive all-in-one coolers without making too much noise... the Antarctica is a great mid-range air cooler.”

“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.”
