Gelid SlimHero (or other for GA-H77N-WiFi)

Post by jaydeesan » Mon Oct 14, 2013 11:43 pm

Ignoring the ridiculous name for a moment... Has anyone had any experience with this heat sink? Is it any good? And does it actually fit on all the 'brilliantly' designed ITX boards with CPU sockets right next to the PCIe slots (Gigabyte H77-WiFi in my case)? According to Gelid's picture it should, but I'd rather hear it from someone with first-hand experience.

Any other, preferably top-down, coolers that we *know* fit on this board with a graphics card installed?
-Looks like enemy aircraft at 12 o'clock!
-Really? 12 o'clock? Well, that gives us about... 25 minutes.

DeepCool Gemaerstorm Gabriel. The last picture seems to show the cooler installed on a Gigabyte ITX board.

??? The HS you linked doesn't look like the Gelid.

It's a different model along the same lines: top-down cooler with an off-center contact area to the CPU and 120mm fan. The picture of the cooler installed on the mainboard looks like the hardware from the original question.
