The newest revision of the GELID Solutions ICY Vision GPU cooler, which the Futurelooks crew reviewed a little while ago, now adds support for AMD’s latest HD 6850 and 6870 GPUs as well as nVidia’s new flagship GTX 580. This is in addition to the already comprehensive list of cards supported which includes the AMD HD4850/ HD4870 / HD4890 / HD5850 / HD5870 / HD6850 / HD6870 & Nvidia 9800GT / 9800GTX GTS250 / GTX260 / 275 / 280 / 285 / GTS450 / GTX 460 / GTX465 /GTX470 / GTX480.

The new 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 finsoldered Copper base, they enable the most efficient heat transmission and dissipation from GPUcore in its class. Besides the heatsink, two 92mm UV-reactive fans with 11 blades in S-shape generate 20% more airflow than traditional fans. The fan contains a high-quality ball bearing to ensure a longer lifetime inhigh temperature environments”.

The revised cooler is now 100% fully in SLI and CrossFire configurations and new VRM and RAM sinks have been added to the package to ensure optimal thermal performance. They’ve also included a tube of their excellent GC-2 thermal compound in the package. Most importantly, the price still holds out at a reasonable MSRP of $55 USD or around Euro 46and is RoHS, WEEE compliant and carries a 5 year warranty.
