GELID is a company that was founded only a year ago but amongst the array of companies out there, it has managed to build up a reputable name for itself in the cooling department, a successful feat in itself. With their latest thermal compound offering, they are hoping to dethrone the market leaders such as Arctic Cooling and Tuniq to become a household name amongst enthusiasts. Can GELID's GC-Extreme really live up to its name? Let's find out.

Firstly a few words on GELID as found on their website:
GELID Solutions

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.

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.
