GELID Icy Vision Graphics Card Cooler
GELID now sends us the Icy Vision, an aftermarket GPU cooler for the masses. GELID states that this three slot behemoth will fit quite a few cards and with the numbers I saw the cooler has some potential. Looking at various reports on the forums, I have seen a lot of GTX 480’s getting great reductions in temperatures. Not too many other cards are using it widely yet, so trying to get an idea for a specific card other than the 480 is a bit difficult. The plan was to use my EVGA GTX 470 Vanilla as the test sample today and to bring you similarly impressive numbers. In reality, that isn’t going to happen.
It may seem odd for a review to start off by telling the readers that you will find no results in this review for a cooler. The sad reality of the matter is that I have to “ghetto mod” the cooler to fit onto my GTX 470 from EVGA to get it to function properly. What you will find in the next few pages is a good look at the cooler and the hardware. From there on I plan to show why exactly the GELID Icy Vision should not be listed as supporting a GTX 470 and the potential for harm to your GPU if you do use them as instructed in the manual. I know all of the manufacturers I review for would love it if all my reviews were full of rainbows, unicorns and soft little teddy bears, but when I run into an issue, I expect a resolution to that issue instead of Technicolor smoke being blown up my... The only thing I can do from here on out is bring forth the truth and discuss my experience with the GELID Icy Vision.
