Specifications, Availability and Pricing
As far as typical coolers go, there isn't anything here that leads you to think that the GELID Tranquillo is anything special. GELID uses all the same materials like copper in its four heat pipes and aluminum in the fins, just like any other. The Tranquillo also falls right into the averages in its near 650 gram weight and 153mm height. This will allow the Tranquillo to fit inside of most mid towers and stay clear of door panels. The magic happens in the way the fan rids the specially shaped fins of the CPU's heat.
Speaking of ridding the fins of heat, GELID utilized a 58 CFM, 120mm fan specially designed to handle this task. This fan is PWM controlled and is capable of running as slow as 700 RPM. When demand calls for it, this fan is capable of up to 1500 RPM. These might sound like very good specs for a 120mm fan, but to be honest, they aren't. But GELID is putting silence first and engineered the Tranquillo around this fan. To be real honest, I'm a bit skeptical that the fan can handle very high wattage CPU's, but we will soon see as the T.E.C.C doesn't choose sides.
I'm sorry to say that currently only one e-tailer shows stock of the Tranquillo at this time. I was able to locate it at Mwave.com for $39.99 plus shipping. This price is just above GELID's own $38 MSRP, but the cooler is fresh off the presses and currently there is no competition to drive pricing down a bit. As with most things, once availability rises the pricing should drop a bit as well, especially in the more major e-tailers. If this cooler strikes a chord with you, keep an eye out for stock at your favorite retailers, as I'm sure more stock is soon to hit the shelves.
