Well I am not going to lie, I never thought that this cooler would have fared as well as it did against these other coolers. A couple of these coolers are a lot bigger and a lot more impressive looking but the fact remains that the Tranquillo did...

If you're looking for suicide runs and highest possible clocks for some short air benching runs, you'll want to look to a different cooler. Costing $40 USD, the GELID Tranquillo is a good deal though, as it provides good performance and low...

I certainly think GELID Solutions are on the right track here and with Tranquillo in the market they have much better chance than some other well known CPU cooler manufactures. The over all experience with Tranquillo has been great! The installation...

As part of Gelid Solutions Silent line-up, the implication is that the Tranquillo will be silent. In that respect, the expectation has been met and exceeded. One of the compliments I can bestow on this cooler, is that my son walked into the room and...

Gelid is a company that's come out of left field to make a bit of a name for itself in the bargain air-cooling market. This latest, the Tranquillo, fits perfectly into that setup, almost making a mockery of the equally large, twin-turbined...

The Tranquillo is the second heatsink from Gelid Solutions, a Hong Kong based company born to a great extent from the ashes of the once mighty, now headphone hawking Arctic Cooling. Gelid has been continuing on in the silent cooling vein, with...

After all the dust settled and we got to know the Tranquillo’s strengths and weakness very well, it’s difficult not to come away impressed. Its unique design really does seem to work by funneling air into and over not only the main fin array...

At first look, Gelid Tranquillo gave us a déjà vu feeling, because it uses a design very similar to other coolers we tested, like Noctua NH-U12P, Thermaltake ISGC-300 and 3R System iCEAGE Prima Boss. The good news is that almost all the...

If this is how well Gelid Solutions can cool your CPU when trying to keep everything quiet, imagine what they can do with a little noise! I'm excited to see what they will do in the future but the Tranquillo will be more than enough to keep me...

Gelid has a worthy product in the Tranquillo, especially for a relatively new company. The Tranquillo easily bests the performance of the OEM cooler while being noticeably quieter, even at full speed. The design doesn't provide any board-cooling...

GELID has done a wonderful job with the Tranquillo CPU cooler. As the name implies, it did live up to being a silent (and well performing) CPU cooler. I was especially happy to see the broad platform compatibility right out of the box. They may not...

While top-end cooling for LGA1366 is somewhat lacking, the Tranquillo is pretty good at cooling LGA1156 and AMD CPUs. It was only 1-2°C off the temperatures of the Titan Fenrir at its low fan speed. Furthermore, the Tranquillo is keenly priced at a...

This is the second GELID Solutions CPU cooler that we've had on the bench here at BCCHardware, and just like the Silent Spirit CPU cooler (full review here), the Tranquillo also scored very well in our testing. The Tranquillo is advertised as having...

Aftermarket heatpipe based coolers come a dime a dozen these days. There's very little new and refreshing about them, still each year we spot new models and brands on the market. That confirms the strong demand of coolers like these and it also...

We really liked Gelid's Tranquillo as the cooler features great design, excellent finishing and multitude of tiny details that although unnoticeable, do a lot to improve the performance. Tranquillo is also one of few cooling solutions that supports...

Der Gelid Tranquillo ist ein wahrliches Top Produkt und das zu einem absoluten Kampfpreis von gerademal 23€. Die Verarbeitung kann sich sehen lassen und die Montage ist einfach wie nie. Der Lüfter des Tranquillo ist gar nicht (PWM) bis kaum...

Der Gelid Tranquillo bietet eine sehr zeitgemäße Leistung, und das zum Preis von ca. 25-30 €. Das Featureset ist komplett und man vermisst an diesem Kühler auch im Vergleich zur teils deutlich teureren Konkurrenz nichts. Im...
