“The Black Edition” is a CPU cooler from Gelid. It has two tower heatsinks, two 120 mm fans, and seven U-shaped heatpipes. Let’s test it.
The name of the product is curious. At first, we tough it was a “Black Edition” of an older cooler, but it seems like “The Black Edition” is a name on its own. By the way, the cooler is not black.
Figure 1 shows the box of the cooler.
Figure 2 shows the contents of the box: the cooler, a small syringe of thermal compound, a manual, and installation hardware.
