GELID IcyPad Review


While cooling might not be in the forefront of your mind during winter season, your components would beg to differ. Sure they are not sentient but if they could speak they would let you know that cooling is always important no matter what season. CPUs and video cards get the bulk of the attention when it comes to prioritizing system cooling and even laptops get their own cushy platforms now but what about other products that are outside of your PC tower?


Cooling is not just their business, it is their name so it comes as no surprise that GELID has cooling products beyond CPU and VGA heat sinks. Their latest product is called the Icy Pad, a compact, flat surface cooler that has multiple applications. Think of it as a miniature laptop cooler that is not for laptops but perfectly suited for routers, media players and other accessories that require cooling.
