Design Concept:

The “Rev. 2 ICY VISION” cooler contains 5 power heatpipes in a unique heatpipe constellation. The
heatpipes are interlaced into 85 optimized high-quality Aluminium fins. Together with a flat stack fin
soldered Copper base, they enable the most efficient heat transmission and dissipation from GPU
core in its class. Besides the heatsink, two 92mm UV-reactive fans with 11 blades in S-shape generate 20% additonal air flow than traditional fans. The fan contains a high-quality ball bearing to ensure a longer lifetime in high temperature environments.

Both VGA fans blow cold air directly to the card

while case fans draw hot air from the PC case.

"The GELID Icy Vision outperforming a reference video card cooler is a given, hence the tests conducted were against a video card that already comes with a highly regarded non-reference design.  Although incompatible with the typical reference GTX 670 PCB, which is significantly shorter, the GELID Icy Vision VGA cooler was, thankfully, compatible with a GTX 680. This is the exact same PCB layout as my Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 3X OC video card, so installing the GELID Icy Vision would not be a problem. The Gigabyte Windforce 3X cooling system uses three 80mm fans and is the quietest video card cooling solution I have ever come across. Combined with the Gigabyte Windforce 3X's three heatpipe design, the GELID Icy Vision was facing a very tough opponent in this head to head test."

"The Rev. 2 Icy Vision gives you a tremendous amount of headroom needed for overclocking and in this case we had plenty of it. Believe or not we achieved these overclocked temps with the fan set to about 35-40% fan speed and it was still able to keep temperatures under 70C. These low temperatures will keep your GPU running great for a long time, so trust me, its worth the extra money to buy an after market CPU cooler. So many company's create their own aftermarket coolers for reference cards for this very reason to allow overclocking headroom and to preserve your GPUs life span. We absolutely loved the cooling performance the Rev. 2 Icy Vision displayed and would recommend it to anyone that is currently struggling with unstable GPU temperatures. Go out and do yourself a favor and purchase an aftermarket VGA cooler like the Rev. 2 Icy Vision, you wont be disappointing."

"El refrigerador Gelid Icy Vision Rev.2 ofrece un nivel de refrigeración muy por encima de los modelos de fábrica. Su precio oficial es de 46 euros, por lo que se sitúa a medio camino entre los dos modelos con los que lo hemos comparado.  Si el espacio es un gran problema en nuestra torre, es una gran opción para conseguir que una gráfica que ya poseamos pueda durarnos más tiempo antes de tener que sustituirla por un modelo nuevo ya que podemos realizar una alta dosis de overclocking sin temor a las temperaturas. Desde del El Chapuzas Informático le otorgamos el galardón de oro por su buen nivel de refrigeración en un disipador de un tamaño muy ajustado y un ruido casi inapreciable."

"L’Icy Vision che Gelid Solutions ci ha permesso di recensire, è stato un prodotto valido sotto tutti i punti di vista. Il sistema di raffreddamento è molto silenzioso a bassi regimi di rotazione, e ciò è molto importante mentre stiamo usando il nostro computer in ambito desktop. Attualmente questo dissipatore è in vendita ad un prezzo di 46€ iva inclusa, dove si devono aggiungere 3,50€ se vogliamo installarlo sulla famiglia di GPU Radeon HD6900 Series (il prezzo è per la staffa). HwMaster consiglia vivamente l’acquisto di questo dissipatore per chi non vuole spendere molti soldi, ma pretende un prodotto di qualità."

"I never start a conclusion with the negative points, but honestly I had to look hard to find one. With that out of the way lets get back to the highlights, and there is a lot of them. When I opened the package and found all the parts I was a bit overwhelmed. Then I went to the instruction label and was very happy to see instructions in color and clearly labeled. I was able to sort all of the parts and arrange the set up that I needed with ease. Installation was just as easy. Everything went together so well that it barely took 15 minutes to complete. When I tested the stock cooler I had the temperatures that I expected. FurMark is very demanding and when I got into the 80's I started to see some artifacting. I was a little concerned to re-run the test with the Icy Vision, but it brought down the temperatures so much I felt like I was running a brand new card. I can not express my feelings enough when I say if you are looking for an after market air cooler for your graphics card, Gelid Solutions is definitely the route to go and is why we feel it deserves the Editors Choice Award!"

"Gelid Icy Vision Rev. 2 bez wątpienia zasługuje na rekomendację portalu infoBIT.pl. Charakteryzuje się świetną wydajnością i wysoką kulturą pracy (ocena przyznana temu produktowi w 80% podyktowana była wymienionymi cechami), przy jednocześnie niewielkiej ilości minusów. Scythe, nawet z bogatym zestawem akcesoriów, na tle Gelida wypada mizernie. Największą wadą tego modelu jest niewystarczająca wydajność przy zwiększonym napięciu oraz nie najcichszy wentylator."

"L'Icy Vision rev.2 di Gelid, ha sicuramente suscitato l'interesse di quegli utenti come gamers e overclockers che esigono il massimo dalle proprie schede video, coniugando performance ed estetica senza compromessi. Il bundle in dotazione è di ottimo livello e si rende possibile l'installazione su numerosi modelli di VGA. Come se non bastasse, all'interno della confezione sono presenti numerosi accessori destinati al raffreddamento dei componenti che risiedono nelle zone circostanti alla GPU. Nonostante l'installazione si fosse rivelata piuttosto semplice, un esaustivo manuale di installazione faciliterà le operazioni anche agli utenti meno esperti.
La struttura dissipante è composta da materiale di assoluta qualità e ogni aspetto è stato curato nei minimi particolari. La base interamente in rame è perfettamente planare (a differenza di precedenti step produttivi che avevano qualche carenza sotto questo aspetto), assicurando un rapido trasferimento del calore, così come dimostrano i test effettuati che riportano in alcuni casi anche 20°C di scarto rispetto a soluzioni di raffreddamento stock, giustificando di conseguenza il prezzo finale di 46€."

"The battle is over and we are happy to say that Gelid's cooler Icy Vision 2 won. Eveybody who is looking for a powerful GPU cooler should take a look at the Icy Vision 2. Even when the fans are at very low rotation speeds it outperforms the other coolers."

"The GELID Icy Vision Rev 2. cooler utterly surpassed our expectations for it. The cooler destroyed the temperature and noise levels set by our stock cooler. With the GELID Icy Vision Rev 2 you really can have your cake and eat it, too… you just have to want 3 PCI slots’ worth of cake. TechREACTION proudly recommends the GELID Icy Vision Rev 2. for performance enthusiasts, overclockers, gamers or that case ,od that needs something a little something extra."

"Видеокулер GELID Rev. 2 ICY VISION – это без сомнения отличная и очень качественно выполненная система охлаждения, эффективности которой будет достаточно для «усмирения» самых горячих одночиповых видеокарт. Кроме очень высокой эффективности, этот кулер может похвастаться низким уровнем шума, что порой является более важным качеством для многих пользователей. Даже при максимальной скорости вращения вентиляторов он работает комфортно, создавая шум ниже среднего. При этом запаса эффективности GELID ICY VISION Rev. 2 хватит для того, чтобы эксплуатировать его при низкой скорости вращения, создав, таким образом, совсем тихую систему охлаждения. Кроме того, очень понравилось качество исполнения GELID Rev. 2 ICY VISION – например, ту же пайку на тепловых трубках встретишь далеко не везде. И сама конструкция, несмотря на то, что с первого взгляда кажется достаточно простой, очень хорошо продуманная. К отрицательным моментам кулера GELID Rev. 2 ICY VISION можно отнести тот факт, что он занимает три слота, а не два, что может стать препятствием на пути создания связки по технологии CrossFireX или SLI. Хотя если нужно будет объединить две видеокарты, то при правильном подборе материнской платы, этот недостаток мешать не будет."

"Gelid on vallannut ainakin allekirjoittaneen sydämen. Erinomainen teho yhdistettynä kohtuulliseen hintaan sekä helppoon asennukseen on kaikki mitä jäähdyttimeltä voi toivoa. Ainoana miinuksena todettakoon kyseisen jäähdyttimen saatavuus Suomesta."

"After a couple of weeks of use I can say that I will not be going back to the stock cooler. I just cannot see myself giving up not only the superior cooling of the Icy Vision but also the lack of fan noise. The only noise coming from my computer is my five case fans (and that may turn into another review somewhere down the line if I get the chance). The time and effort that was required to install this cooler was well worth the end result."

"C'est l'heure du compte rendu, après ce long et passionnant test que faut-il retenir ? Tout d'abord le GELID Icy Vision révision 2 offre une compatibilité très étendue et prend même en charge les dernières cartes graphiques sorties. Le bundle est très complet et dispose d'une multitude de radiateurs pour les RAM et VRM, un câble d'alimentation molex/prise fan pour les ventilateurs en fait partie. La qualité de fabrication est très bonne, le design plaisant mise à par une petite faute de goût concernant les bobines cuivres sur le dessus des 92mm. La base aurait pu bénéficier d'un polissage plus poussé mais les performances ne semblent pas en souffrir. Pour le montage la notice n'est pas très détaillée mais avec un léger effort de vos neurones pour trouver les bonnes vis, il se passera s'en anicroche. Pas besoin de contorsions, ou de doigts de fée, le tournevis cruciforme sera votre meilleur allié. L'encombrement, il prend la place de trois baies pci externe et gênera l'accès à deux slots pci internes, néanmoins le crossfire ou sli devrait être possible sur les cartes mère ayant des ports pciex bien espacés. Le niveau sonore est très bon, inaudible à bas régime , on l'entend à peine à mi-régime, et bien qu'il se laisse remarquer à haute vitesse cela reste dans le domaine du tolérable. Un gros travaille a été effectué sur ce point pour rendre ce ventirad le plus silencieux possible, nous ne sommes pas loin du grall. Côté performance thermique, que dire ! c'est une pure merveille, les graphiques de test parlent d'eux même. Le gain obtenu m'a tout simplement laissé sans voix, je ne m'attendais pas à un tel écart pensant avoir déjà un ventirad performant sur ma carte MSI Twin frozr. Une fois testé difficile de revenir vers un refroidissement traditionnel, je le recommande pour remplacer les dissipateurs simples ou même doubles fans des divers fabriquants de cartes graphiques."

"Gerade für Enthusiasten, die kein Vermögen für einen GPU Kühler ausgeben wollen ist der GELID Solutions ICY VISION Rev. 2 einen Einkauf wert. Er kann mit einer guten Leistung punkten, welche auch bei niedrigen Drehzahlen noch weit vorne liegt. Hinzu kommt die gute Kompatibilität zu aktuellen Mittelklasse und Oberklasse Grafikkarten. Einzig Nutzer die von vorn herein ein Multi-GPU System aufbauen wollen, sollten vorher prüfen, ob die benötigten drei Slots vorhanden sind. Es wird jedoch schnell klar, dass er wesentlich mehr auf eine funktionierende Luftzirkulation angewiesen ist."

January / 2011: Overclockershq.com

"After seeing the stock cooler only keep down the temperature for seconds before going up to almost the boiling point of water I firmly believe people with high end graphic cards should invest in a good cooler.  As you can see from the benchmark GeLid Solution’s Icy Vision did a awesome job of keeping down VGA temperatures.  The installation took a little longer than I thought it would and the instructions were a tad cumbersome to decipher but in the end it was totally worth it. I think the results speak for themselves with this product. I would most definitely recommend a Gelid Icy Vision VGA cooler to anyone who has a supported graphics card and is not happy with their aftermarket cooling or only has stock cooling."
