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...-

After all the dust settled and we got to know the Tranquillos strengths and weakness very well, its 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...90
