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.”

“A PC as it should be: clean and not heard.”

“I ordered a silent PC (ice pipe processor cooling, nofan PSU, passive graphics card, and SSD) late on a Tuesday night and it was delivered the following Tuesday. I had to contact Quiet PC to advise them I could not take a delivery on one particular day and also leave instructions about where at the delivery address the PC should be left. I had a return contact immediately, advised when the delivery would arrive, and when it was delivered - very securely packed - my instructions were typed out clearly next to the delivery address. All discs, manuals a left-over parts from the assembly thoughtfully packed-up. All those component stickers that are usually flashed across the case of PCs carefully bagged should I wish to adorn the case, which I don’t; but the PC itself is clean of labels on the outside and no bloatware on the inside. The machine is a wonder: while the PC it replaced was never noisy, this one is an acoustic black hole and utterly silent; I hadn’t realised that true silence could make using a PC so luxuriously relaxing! The PC is solidly and neatly assembled inside; and despite having no mechanical cooling, according to the monitoring software I’ve installed it runs cooler than it machine it replaced (typically 35-43C, and so far 47C max). These people are artisans of PC builders and suppliers, and to be thoroughly recommended.”
