The SlimHero features 4 sintered power heatpipes with a silent and slim 120mm fan. The copper heatpipes ensure maximum heat transfer from CPU to the aluminum fins. The heatsink is built in a unique shape to lower the air flow resistance. The cooler can be mounted on each directions of the AMD socket.

The low profile cooler SlimHero is especially designed for compact PC cases where space can be the key problem. With a total height of 5.9 cm this cooler can fit almost all smaller cases and is able to cool up to 136W (TDP).

The heatsink is bundled with a silent and slim 120mm fan with high airflow. The fan comes with an intelligent PWM control which allows users to set the fan speed in their BIOS accordingly.

3 out of 5 eggsDidn't Fit, Couldn't Use

Pros: Well made and well machined.

Cons: I bought this to use with the ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard. It didn't fit b/c the RAM was in the way.

Other Thoughts: Would have liked to use but gotta have memory so... better luck next time. I will just stick with the standard H/S fan combo for now.

5 out of 5 eggsPassively cool an AMD 5350

Pros: Low profile with heat pipes and the right footprint for my purpose.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I used this to passively cool an AMD 5350.
What I used:
AMD 5350
Gelid Slim Hero cpu cooler
Samsung 840 EVO 120GB
Silverstone MILO Series ML06B HTPC case
2 sticks of low profile ram I had sitting around
Old laptop charger

How I did it:
I used the intel mounting brackets and snipped one leg off each end and drilled holes in the proper location to match the holes in the motherboard. Then used some small nuts, bolts and nylon washers to attach it. Tossed the fan that came with it into a drawer.
Note: low profile ram MUST be used and, believe me, you need to install it prior to mounting the heatsink if you use both ram slots.

If you listen carefully, you can almost hear the electrons bumping into each other.
Running with NO FANS and in the case and an ambient air temp of 27c.
Running prime 95 I got the temps;
It took 5 minutes to reach 50c
10 minutes to reach 55c
20 minutes to reach 61c
It never went beyond 61c while running for 90 minutes.
The motherboard temp maxed out at 55c
These temps were from the BIOS and SpeedFan
Since, as far as I can tell, this CPU is rated for up to 90c, I'm very satisfied with the results.
It's intended purpose is to run XBMC, watch a few on line videos, listen to music, web surfing and a few very low end kids games (the boys are 7 and 5 so no hard core games). All encoding, ripping etc is handled by a machine that serves as a file server as well.
It plays videos like a champ while at 13% cpu load.
My Kill-A-Watt meter reads roughly 19 watts while watching videos and 13 watts while idle.
Hope this helps somebody wanting to do the same.

GELID design team: You can have a winner here if you offer a mounting kit to fit the AM1 boards.
You can pay my R&D fee with cash or a Newegg gift card. Thanks in advance! :)

5 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: Installs easily
Low profile
Beats the stock cooler
Good for HTPC

Cons: The fan is a little loud. It is not horrible, but I did swap it out with one that was quieter

The only other hitch was that the screws coming down did not line up exactly on the holes (we are talk about a few hairs widths here and there, but it did take just a little finagling to get it place.

Other Thoughts: The fan directions have instructions for socket 1155 and 1156, this will also work with socket 1150.

I did not install this on an AMD processor. I used on a Haswell CPU. Install was straight forward. The adhesive washer made it a breeze.

I especially liked the lower retention system. It is much easier than trying to fight screws or nuts from above. It also provides good clamping force.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for HTPC builds!

Pros: HTPC builds are very limited on space. I found this heatsink to be exactly the right size for my Silverstone ML05B case. I replaced the fan with a Cougar 120mm x 25mm fan and was still able to mount the fan onto the case mount point without any modifications! True it may not compete with many other top end heatsinks, but for ITX desktop cases, this is the perfect match!

Cons: The fan that comes with the heatsink is cheap, but will do the job. My case had exactly enough room for me to mount a larger 120mm x 25mm Cougar. This drawback is not worth enough to drop an egg.

Other Thoughts: Built a mini virtualbox server using this heatsink:
Silverstone ML05B case
Silverstone ST45SF 450W SFX12V power supply
ASRock Z87E-ITX mb
Intel i5-4670K cpu
Asus R7240 2gb 128bit video card
1 G.Skill 240pin (2x8) 16gb 2400 DDR3 memory
1 Samsung 840 EVO 250gb SSD

5 out of 5 eggsBest Low Profile Cooler

Pros: > Low Profile
> 120mm fan, helps cool everything under it.
> Excellent Cooling Performance
> Easy to install once you understand how
> Reasonable price for how good it works & looks
> Very quiet

Cons: No cons in my experience, however some may:

> Have some trouble initially with install
> Memory DIMMs that are too tall may be an issue
> Over tightening nuts may bend some motherboards too much
> Does not use factory under plate (not a really a con)

Other Thoughts: This really is a great cooler and probably the only truly low profile cooler that actually works. Other makers have had something similar but have dropped those lines leaving but one excellent low profile cooler for small, tight cases...

4 out of 5 eggsNice and cool

Pros: Can be mounted in any direction depending on your MB layout. Low profile yet still has 120mm fan, memory with low profile heat spreaders fit under the cooler with room to spare, reasonable cost, very good workmanship.

Cons: Fan on my unit is a bit noisy so will have to replace with a low profile noctua as my cougar was too tall.

Other Thoughts: While I have had better luck than most people who do reviews seem to have with the OEM AMD cooler I decided to look for an aftermarket cooler that would deliver more cooling power and still fit in a very small ITX case. I found this cooler and though I was worried it would be too tall and wide I ordered it and I am very glad I did. It is well made and due to the way the included AMD mount works it fit my Gigabyte ITX MB perfectly with plenty of clearance for the ram(low profile) and northbridge heatsink. the fan is secure but does make a slight rattling noise at any speed so I will need to replace. At first I was worried as the fan for the power supply exhausts directly into the CPU cooler fan and the first two days I couldn't get it cooler than 41C and most of the time it was 46C but after burning in the OCZ Ultra Silver thermal compound it is now averaging 37C on the APU(A10 6800K richland) under moderate loads. Should be able to keep it in the mid 40's under heavy loads so that is a win in my book.

2 out of 5 eggsIt's ok, but..........

Pros: It cools

Cons: It's quieter than the stock Intel at 850 rpms, but running it at 1200 rpms is needed to match the same temps I was getting, which is noisier. Attaining even cooler temps requires turning the speed up and dealing with the resultant loud whine, which is as loud as the stock cooler : (

The bracket for the LGA775, did not fit, I had to modify the holes, (elongating them) to fit the motherboard. I don't really like to fabricate stuff, that I'm paying for. Poor quality control.

Lastly, I had to remove a memory stick because the heatpipes were impinging on it.

Other Thoughts: Sad

5 out of 5 eggsEggcellent Cooling

Pros: Cools Ram, Chipset, etc

Stock CPU Cooler at full load - 65 degrees Celsius
Gelid CPU Cooler at full load - 58 Degrees Celsius

Stock CPU Cooler Converting on Hand Brake - 40FPS
Gelid CPU Cooler Converting on Hand Brake - 80FPS

Because this cools everything in the machine, it is a great fan for HTCP

Easy to install, if you cannot install this then you shouldn't have your tech status above 2.
Literally took me 30 seconds to install.

Very slim design

Nice bracket design

Thermal Paste included (only just enough for CPU)

Cons: Low air flow because of the silent fan

Requires the removal of the Stock back plate, and motherboard to install.

Other Thoughts: Great CPU Cooler, very nice design, and very slim.

I would recommend it to any low profile enthusiast

5 out of 5 eggsNice Cooler

Pros: Low Profile, cost, mounting system, thermal paste.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I needed a low profile heatsink, only 75mm clearance in my Cooler Master Elite 110. Also needed a mounting system without a backplate. My Asrock, like many mini itx boards, has small chips on the back of the motherboard very close to the mounting holes.

Unlike the previous reviewer I found the install straight forward and simple. There are only the Intel and AMD hardware, and you just use the mounting holes for the 1156/1155 socket. The ram clearance was fine, as long as you don't have ram with tall heatsinks you should be fine.

So far keeping my cpu at 28C to 32C, very pleased.
