What happens to a typical tower cooler after hundreds of computer air flow simulation testing? Have a look at GELID's result, the Tranquillo.

The Package

The Tranquillo ships in the typical white and grey packaging we are used to seeing with the GELID green accents. The cooler is shown in the middle and the compatibility is boldly shown with the same green accent color.

Four features top the list on this side. Under those features is a very well laid out specifications table to inform you of just what you are buying.

The long list of applicable processors for both AMD and Intel adorn the back of the box. In the middle there are small images of the included mounting hardware. The bottom shows just what the simulations showed. The design redirects airflow to maximize what the 58 CFM fan has to offer.

This side, again, shows features. Only this time there are six, now including the silent operation, and five year warranty icons. Near the bottom GELID displays the curve the fan follows with its PWM function, essentially ramping the fan speed based on temperatures usually.

Pulling the Tranquillo out of the box, I found a snap together, plastic inner package that sits on top of the hardware box at the left. This packaging secures both the fan and the cooler for shipment and the box keeps the hardware from causing any damage during shipping.
