Gelid Solutions Icy Vision Rev.2 VGA Cooler for High-end ATI and Nvidia
Got a Nvidia GTX480 or an ATI 5870 and want to keep it cooler and quieter? Then you just may need the Gelid Icy Vision!
The ICY VISION includes five power heatpipes with 10 effective heat transmission channels and 85 individual 0.4mm thick high quality aluminium fins. This configuration ensures a faster heat dissipation from the GPU to aluminium fins. And thanks to the two 92mm S-shape fans that provide 20% additional air flow than traditional fans, the ICY VISION cools High End Graphics cards at a lower noise level than the original stock cooler.
Both fans are wired together and are powered by a single 3-pin fan connector which connects to any free 3-pin fan header on the motherboard and they do run at full speed so if you prefer to have some control over the Icy Vision's fan speeds, we would recommend that you use a Zalman FANMATE 2 or similar fan controller, which will allow you to set your preferred cooling/noise balance.
- Compatible with virtually all Nvidia and ATI cards
- Five high performance power heatpipes
- Premium aluminium fins and pure copper base
- Two 92mm S-shape fans for 20% additional air flow
- Ball bearing for long life
- CrossFire and SLI compatible
- Confirmed compatible with nVidia GTX680 and ATI HD7870
The Icy Vision boasts a massive compatibility list. Straight out of the box it is suitable for ATI HD4850, HD4870, HD4890, HD5830, HD5850, HD5870, HD6850, HD6870, HD6950 and HD6970 (HD6950 and HD6970 require the VRM heatsink) and NVIDIA 9800GT, 9800GTX, GTS250, GTX260, 275, 280, 285, GTS450, GTX460, GTX465, GTX470, GTX480, GTX560 TI, GTX570 and GTX580. The heatsinks required for cooling the RAM and FETs on the graphics card are all included. Please note the following height restriction drawing to aid compatibility with your system.
The Icy Vision will take up three spaces when installed in your case, so if you only have two PCI-E slots that are placed really close together the you probably won’t be able to run a dual card configuration with the Icy vision installed.
GELID has also confirmed that the Icy Vision is compatible with nVidia's new GTX680 along with ATI's HD7870 and HD7850!

I'm from Turkey. Shipping took 7 days. I think it's fast. I bought this cooler for my Powercolor AMD HD6870. I have a mid Tower case.. but it has 2 x 80mm fans (as blowers) right in front of the VGA card slot.
When playing Mass Effect 3, Crysis 3 and the worst of all Max Payne... heat was 95-102 C. Now my idle and full load temps are 30-49 C.. That's all I'm gonna say.
PS:I gave 9 points because didn't like the shape of it, my card looks ugly now and fans pin doesn't fit to card, they could arrange something about that. But who cares anyway.

I don't know how to write this in english so.. in write in spanish ..
Simplemente espectacular la diferencia, ayer lo instalé en mi Vapor-X HD4870x2 y las temperaturas en idle bajaron drasticamente, 34° contra los acostumbrado 60° que tenía la tarjeta de video, en modo full carga nisiquiera llegó a tener 45° ( se manteniá en 44 y a veces 45).
Totalmente recomiendo este Cooler!!.
QuietPC les agradesco tener productos de tan excelente calidad.

This is an amazing product. I have a GTX 470 and I could not stand the sound of it any more. When it was at full load and the fans were on full you couldn't hear yourself think. Previously with the stock cooler my card (at load) would run around 95c and fans on 100%. With this cooler the maximum I have had so far is 75c. Already this is a 20c drop.
What makes this even better is that I purchased a fan controller and this cooler is achieving this 20c drop on the lowest possible fan speed (can't hear it over my CPU/case fans). Running various tests I have found pushing the fans to max (which are nowhere near as loud as my stock fans on max) I can get it to drop to about 65c (30c difference!). Overall amazing product. You will not be disappointed. Makes your graphics card a lot cooler and a lot quieter, a must buy!

When attaching the cooler, I managed to snap two of the dinky little screws even though I didn't think I used much strength at all. Fortunately there was one spare in the kit, so now my cooler is attached with 3 out of 4 screws. Scary, but seems to work properly. It can indeed be pretty quiet when tuned with a fan controller.
If you require any spare screws please contact us and we will be more than happy to help.

At first I was unsure if this cooler was compatible with my card (gigabyte gtx560 ti oc) but it was and the result is incredible, stock temps were 35c at idle and 80c at full load, with this cooler they are now 27c at idle and 60c at full load. As for sound level I cant hear this cooler over my case fans and they are pretty quiet. I found installing it a bit fiddly and the instructions not much help, in all took me about an hour to fit. Well impressed with this purchase.

My order received a little bit late. (came in 4 weeks, that's why I gave eight stars). I'm using with Sapphire HD4870 Vapor-X, the montage was not so hard. Instructions paper is enough to get how to setup. I've had a bit problem with my SATA connectors while setting up my motherboard's sata port location is too close to PCI-exp slot. (My board is gigabyte p45-ud3lr). I am using 2 HDDs and a dvd drive, my third sata port didn't let one of the fans spin therefore the dvd's sata cable is obliged to be removed. That's ok for now. Anyway, performance is amazing , it was around 65C when idle , and 85C+ when %100 load. After set it up , temperature has fallen down to 35C when idle and 46-50C when its full load.So that's an incredible cooler for your VGA Adapter, thanks to QuietPC. It's strongly advised. (Especially shopping from QuietPC).

I have added this cooler onto my GTX 560Ti and it has done the following:
Stock cooler at load 93C ... This cooler at load 53C
Stock cooler at idle 36C ... This cooler at idle 27C
The only problem would be that the fans run at 2040 rpm and I cannot change them. This is a very good cooler.
Thanks for your feedback! To pick up on your final point, using Zalman's FANMATE2 is a good way to vary the fan speed if you wish - it's an excellent, cost effective further upgrade to Gelid's already great cooler.

Bought this for my HD6950 with bios mod to HD6970 and an overclock of 930/1400. Keeps it very very cool with MSI Afterburner giving a max reading of 52degrees at full load.
My only concern and annoyance, the fans are not PWM controlled so the fan speed cannot be changed through MSI Afterburner or other software. Sits on a constant 2100rpm which is actually louder than the stock cooler in my case. I bought this for the low noise element primarily and it was a little disappointing. Most of the reviews i read did not mention this factor. Tempted to look for another cooler or find a cheap fan controller.

This is an easy to fit product on the VTX ATI HD6950 graphics card, however you do not need the VRM Cooling Enhancement Kit, even the VRM replacement heat sink that comes with this cooler doesn't fit. Stick the Memory heat sinks on add the fan job done. Nice and quiet compared to the stock fans.

I bought this to replace the noisy stock cooler on my Radeon 6970 along with the extra VRM kit and it works brilliantly, keeps the card at 63 on the gpu and 70 on the VRM chips when overclocked to 950/1450 in Furmark at the highest settings.. It was a little bit tricky to install but worth it.. Definitely recommended!!

Quiet PC have an excellent service, received my item in good condition. The cooler works wonders on my Palit GTX 580 and overclocked it at 850 MHz. Need patience to install it. Great product instead.

I'll start by saying excellent service you offer, super quick delivery. :D the item is very good, knocked down temps by 25c which I'm very happy, I can play Crysis 2 without overheating my card. wo0t but installation of cooler isn't as easy as I thought, the instructions are basic enough, but cards shown are the 275, not 9800gtx, although this cooler does support it, following diagrams that don't represent your card is a little hard. also the thermal pads are a nightmare to unstick from the corners (both side) overall excellent item.

First of all, I'd like to tell you this: I couldn't guess that the product would come to Turkey in a short time. I took the product in 4 working days. If we mention about the product, it is really excellent. I saw my Palit GTX 480 display adapter at idle the temperature of 32°C and at load the temperature of max. 60°C. My display adapter works quietly and stable as a result of Gelid Icy Vision and runs at approximately ((GPU clock-840MHz/ Shader clock-1680MHz/ Memory clock-1960MHz)).

Was not sure about this cooler but once fitted well pleased with the result. Temp down from 60 to 34 degrees on idle and does not exceed 40 on full load. Not too difficult to fit but a bit of care needed when fitting thermal pads. Instructions straightforward. Much, much quieter than the noisy stock cooler on my PowerColor 4890 - all in all an excellent buy. Good service from Quiet PC too.
