Default GELID Rev. 2 Icy Vision GPU Cooler Review

Of all the components we shove into our PCs, the hardest to keep cool is the graphics card. With current models easily able to reach 80C or higher at full load, purchasing an after-market cooler can be tempting. GELID has just a single GPU cooler model, the Rev. 2 Icy Vision, so let's see how effective it is against our hot GTX 470.

Read through Ryan's in-depth look at GELID's Rev. 2 Icy Vision graphics card cooler and discuss it here!

FYI. This cooler is on sale for 24.99 at a certain Canadian e-tailer this week.

Very nice. If it's that cheap, I'd say pick it up if you don't mind the additional overall system noise it generates. Now that I think about it, I wonder if you could run it off of a fan controller to keep things quiet?
