Gelid launches three-fan Black Edition heatsink

Seven heatpipes, three fans - it's a beast.

if it's 59 euros rrp, that includes whatever vat exists in that country (19% is typical) and there will be no import duty for eu so that should translate to 48 total rrp for uk.

Not even close in weight to the Thermalright TRUE Copper 1900g (Heatsink Only)
A heatsink with a back plate should be able to hold a good deal of weight as the load is spread evenly over a larger area.

Interesting idea, but I have to wonder how much difference the two upper pipes will really make.

Incidentally, anyone know of any horror stories of overly large tower coolers destroying motherboards? I thought my CM 212-something (one of the early ones) was heavy, but I bet it's half what this weighs. Not to mention the TRUE, as Corky42 says. Something that size I think I'd definitely go with a horizontal MB.

Well I use a cobbled together Scythe Kama Angle on my board, 123 x 123 x 160 mm and 640g.

I even felt at that weight there was too much stress on the board with the push pins so I cobbled together the backplate and screws from a Tranquilo to bolster it.

640g gives the board of a bend without a backplate, even with that backplate I wouldn't feel comfortable using anything heavier for a long period of time. Saying that the Gelid backplate I use works well so it may be perfectly fine if they use a similar one on this cooler.

seems like harder not smarter... its not about adding more fans... we all can do that anywhere in a chassis with a little jimmy'ing and tape and the needed macgyver parts.

its a design with less, smaller and more silent designs that impress me.

Indeed

My cooler is a bit unusual but adding more fans actually increased temperature. Compact units that can shift alot of heat would be more impressive.

Yep my TRUE copper weighs a good 2.5kg with a fan on it, but I wouldn't use it unsupported... too scary!

As for this new Gelid cooler, why all the hullabaloo for three fan support? The IFX-14 started this trend six years ago, and many dual tower coolers have followed suit.

Unfortunately these "cooling specialist" companies have exhausted all the novel marketing tacks and with every so-called "new" cooler comes a rehashed sales pitch, which is probably the best that can be done for essentially rehashed hardware.

I used a Thermaltake Big Typhoon cooler and had it on the MB for 7+ years and never had a problem with it breaking the MB. It weighs 813g and the computer has been moved several times by movers, and been jarred hard enough to have to justify reseating it.
