GELID left no stone unturned when designing the Tranquillo. From textured, redesigned fin concept to reality, all based around a mediocre performing fan at best, I have to say GELID really surprised me with the end result. I'm not a huge fan of the white blades, but it seems to be GELID's trademark fan color scheme. However, that's personal preference and who am I to mess with their success. Either way, the Tranquillo seems to be the new "sleeper" in cooling technology.
The complaint list is short with the Tranquillo, and actually, it has already been covered when I mentioned the color of the fans blades. Aside from this, there really isn't anything I can nitpick on with this cooler. The build quality is good, the hardware is easy to use and install and the instructions will get you through any tough spots. I really ended up liking the shape and the stamped texture in the fins is something I can live with. I am really impressed with what hours of simulations in a PC environment can lead to in real life.
Limited availability is the only real downfall to the Tranquillo at this time. The asking price isn't what I would call unreasonable; in fact, it's quite average for a newly released 120mm tower cooler. What isn't average is what you get. Aside from larger "monster" coolers, the Tranquillo has to be packed with the most features and design elements over any of its direct competition. I have never personally bought from Mwave, so I can't personally say run out and get one from them, but I will say if you are looking for a silent cooler on a budget, the Tranquillo pretty much takes that crown. If noise isn't an issue, accommodate for a bit extra and have a go. I think this cooler can run with the big dogs if you choose a louder more obnoxious fan.
