Silent Spirit now compatible to Intel’s LGA-1366 Socket
GELID’s LGA-1366 Mounting Clip enables Silent Spirit to fit Intel’s LGA-1366 socket
HONG KONG, 06 January, 2009
Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions launches a LGA-1366 mounting clip which enables the
quad heatpipe silent mid-range CPU cooler Silent Spirit to fit Intel’s LGA-1366 socket.
Thanks to the light weight of just 370g the Silent Spirit will not strain the socket and will allow for safe
The Top-flow cooler Silent Spirit follows an open frame concept whereby both design and dimensions
have been improved to eliminate humming and buzzing noises while maintaining a compact overall
size. Precise software calculations were made during the development stage to simulate both airflow
and cooling performance in order to create a prototype that would live up to the expectations of a true
silent aficionado. In order to cool down the Northbridge heatsink (chipset) and surrounding voltage
regulator module close to the CPU, the heatsink has been tilted specially to an angle for this purpose.
Unlike other top flow coolers this unique feature stops hot air from accumulating beneath the heatsink.
The 92mm fan has been chosen for silent operation and high airflow and comes with an intelligent
PWM control to allow users to set the fan speed in their BIOS accordingly. In addition the antivibration
fan mounts are made of high quality rubber thus guaranteeing a long life span even during
high temperatures. Besides the Intel LGA-1366 socket the cooler is compatible also to Intel LGA-775
and AMD 754/ 939/ 940/ AM2/ AM2+ sockets, is RoHS and WEEE conform and has warranty of 5
“Our LGA 1366 mounting clip will future proof the Silent Spirit for Intel’s Core i7 CPUs”, said Gebhard
Scherrer co-founder and Sales Director of GELID Solutions Ltd.
The GELID 1366 Mounting Clip is available and has a MSRP of USD 4.99 or Euro 3.99.
