GELID solutions has announced its new 1U low profile CPU cooler for processors supporting the LGA115x socket.
The new cooler is part of the company’s SILENT product lineup. Designed for HTPC, Panel PC, Car PC and 1U server form factors, the Polar 1U’s heatsink is just 27mm tall, making it fit inside the most compact and slim cases out there.
The heatsink integrates a 75mm frameless fan and an intelligent GELID PWM (Pulse Width Module) control. For optimum cooling, the fan blade spin at 1400 rpm to ensure high airflow. When additional cooling is required, the GELID PWM increases the fan speeds and under low conditions it keeps the fan silent by lowering the speed. The heatsink comes with GC-2 thermal compound pre-applied.
Polar 1U is listed to be compatible with Intel Celeron, Pentium Dual-Core, Core i3 and Core i5 processors with a TDP of 65W. Multiple Intel sockets such as LGA 1150, 1155, and 1156 are supported.
GELID has priced the Polar 1U at an MSRP of $14 in the US and 12 euros in Europe. The product comes with a 5 year warranty.
