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.”

“Exceptionally Amazing Company.”

“I am very impressed with Quiet PC. I’ve recently moved from a Mac to a PC and I opted for Quiet PC because of their reputation and the fact that quietness was a priority for my system.

First off- the staff are extremely nice to deal with and they’re very genuinely helpful. The gentleman called Andy actually saved me money from my build by showing me that some of my items were not needed. I was impressed with this as obviously many companies are all about the buck and little else. The PC is indeed very quiet living up the name from my brief use of thus far. I was previously using an iMac with which I did a lot of work with big image files in Lightroom. Whilst the Mac was a bit quieter under no load compared to the PC, the latter however was MUCH quieter when under heavy load. The Ryzen 3700x PC also runs much smoother with little lag when doing the sort of work which brought my iMac to a standstill and kicked off the bouncing ball of eternal doom that some Mac users are familiar with. All in all this Quiet PC build is a big step up from my 2015 fully maxed out 5k i7 iMac.

What I was also very impressed with was how the dealt with an issue with a faulty graphics card. They were right on the ball with telephone support and getting it sorted. I think that’s extremely important factor in assessing how good a company is as obviously some companies are great at sales but lacking in after sales.

I can honestly say that Quiet PC are up there with the best companies that I’ve used in every single manner. It’s on this note that I highly recommend without reservation!h”
