Gelid Tranquillo CPU Cooler Review

by AkG     |     March 15, 2010

Stock Fan Performance Results


2.6GHz



As you can see, the 1500rpm stock fan on the Tranquillo does come awfully close to the performance levels offered by that of the Wing 12 PL 1800rpm fan. It is certainly going to be interesting to see how this cooler does with even lower speed fans. As with the Zalman Flex, the solid copper base certainly does help with efficiency and while it cannot compete with the likes of the Titan Fenrir, it is a very, very good cooler at this heat load.


3.42GHz



As the heat is turned up, the Gelid Tranquillo once again easily beats most HDT coolers like the venerable OCZ Vendetta 2 and Cooler Master Hyper 212+!


3.8GHz



Even when the heat is really turned up this cooler still does an admirably good job when compared against most other products in its price bracket. Of course, the best of the best are not included in these charts as the big boys usually donít come with a fan.
