Cooler Master has updated its GeminII S524 low-profile heatsink with a couple of new tricks. The new S524 V2 adds a direct-contact base with five copper heatpipes, and active cooling is now provided by the company's 120-mm Silencio FP fan.
Cooler Master says the new base is good for a 7% increase in cooling performance over the original S524. The Silencio fan is claimed to offer a nearly 10 dBA drop in load noise levels over its predecessor, as well. If that's not quiet enough, the V2 can also accept a (potentially) quieter 140-mm fan of the buyer's choosing.
At 4.1" (105 mm) tall, the S524 V2 looks like a good fit for cases where space is at a premium, like Corsair's Carbide Series Air 240. The fins feature a large cutout for memory modules, which leaves room for memory heat spreaders up to 1.8" (46.9 mm) tall.
A quick check of Newegg indicates that the S524 V2 is available today for $45.
