This second revision to the Silent Spirit is specifically built to be mounted in AMD systems, and so works with sockets 754, 939, 940, AM2, AM2+, AM3, FM1, and FM2. A bracket is also included for mounting this on Intel-based systems, but we have found it to be cumbersome and insecure. If you are looking for a comparable solution for Intel processors, we carry several other options that are a much better fit there.
I really liked Gelid's original Silent Spirit for Socket 775 Intel processors. If you didn't need the extra cooling of its big brother, the Tranquillo, it provided excellent cooling for the little 65W processors with very low noise and less bulk. Unfortunately, the AMD mounting bracket never felt terribly secure. Now the Silent Spirit is back in a new revision with updated mounting hardware, and there's a bit of a role-reversal. The new mounting bracket for Intel processors is a bit disappointing, but the AMD hardware feels nice and secure. With easy installation and a design that helps cool components near the CPU, there's finally a good, low-noise alternative to the stock heatsink for mid-range AMD processors.

The top-flow cooler "Rev. 2 Silent Spirit" follows an open frame structure concept whereby both design and dimensions have been improved to eliminate humming and buzzing noises while maintaining a compact overall size. The 92mm fan has been chosen for silent operation and high airflow and comes with an intelligent PWM control to allow users to set the fan speed in their BIOS accordingly. In addition the anti-vibration fan mounts are made of high quality rubber thus guaranteeing a long life span even during high temperatures.
