GELID GC-1 Thermal Paste Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅03-01-09
Rumours have it that the GC-1 from newly established GELID Solutions is a strong contender along-side the favourites in the thermal paste division. We investigate these claims.

GELID is a new company that has arisen out of Hong Kong. On their website ( is written the following:

”The English word "gelid" is derived from the Latin word “gelidus” (extremely cold, icy).

GELID Solutions Ltd. is a Hong Kong based company with Swiss Management and founded in 2008 by Gebhard SCHERRER and VC TRAN. Both have worked in the PC Cooling industry for a number of years and successfully built up an IT company with their expertise.

GELID designs and manufactures thermal solutions, CPU coolers, fans, and other computer hardware for both gamers and silent enthusiasts. We provide computer hardware distributors, retailers and system integrators with innovative, virtually silent, high- performance and top quality thermal solutions.

Quality and innovation are key. And, being Swiss, we leave nothing to chance. That's why we provide a total solution – from bearings to thermal compound, from design to shipping, from the moulding of the fan to the print on the box – with state-of-the-art machines and experienced staff.

Our Vision
Combine quality and ingenuity to set the standard in creating best- in- class products for global computer enthusiasts

As their latest venture, GELID Solutions Ltd. is a privately owned limited liability company with a registered share capital of HKD 1’000’000. Strategically based in Hong Kong, “Asia’s World City”, it enjoys an unrivalled location at the geographical and economic centre of Asia. For our customers, this means easy and quick access to our vast manufacturing base in mainland China. “

So it is with anticipation that today we review one of GELID solutions cooling products. It will be interesting to see how this thermal paste performs when put up against the cooling giants Noctua and Arctic Silver.

Over the page then, so that we can begin this review.
