Air cooling is certainly still a thing, even though the plethora of mods seen in the current market sometimes make us think it is not. One of the latest releases is Polar's 1U low-profile CPU cooler, designed for Intel LGA115x processors.

As part of its SILENT product line, this cooler is designed with HTPC, Panel PC, Car PC and 1U server applications in mind - all thanks to its 27mm tall heat sink. Claiming an improved heat sink fin design, this product weighs in at a tiny 127g.

 

Including a frameless 75mm spinner complete with GELID PWM controls, also on offer is pre-installed GC-2 thermal compound and a design suited for Intel Celeron, Pentium Dual-Core, Core i3 and Core i5 chips - expect a TDP of 65W to be your maximum.

 

Available now at $14, this cooler fits Intel's LGA 1150, 1155 and 1156.
