GELID delivers a sub-£20 heatsink option to PC builders with their BlackFrore CPU cooler

Not everyone needs a high-end CPU cooler. Many of us need something that's basic, compact, and cheap. For less than £20, GELID's BlackFrore CPU cooler is designed to meet the needs of low-budget PC builders, supporting CPUs with 65W TDPs. 

While the BlackFrore is not a cooler option for users of high-end processors, PC builders can get a lot of performance with 65W TDP processors. If you need a cheap CPU cooler for a non-overclocking CPU, GELID has created an option that may be worth considering. For $16.99/€13.99, the BlackFrore will be one of the cheapest components inside your system, and thanks to its all-black aesthetic, it should look great. 

With support for all modern CPU sockets and such a low price, GELID's BlackFrore appears to be a great CPU cooler option for many PC builders.   

What follows is Gelid's Press Release.
