GELID Solutions Rev2 Tranquillo CPU Cooler Review

Today we are looking at the GELID Rev. 2 Tranquillo Silent CPU tower cooler. The Rev. 2 Tranquillo is an updated version of the Tranquillo. The new Rev. 2 features a new updated mounting system, base, and heatpipe arrangement. Join us as we see how well it performs on our Intel Core i7-930 test system at both stock and overclocking settings.

This is the very first time that I have reviewed a GELID CPU cooler, but for full disclosure I have reviewed, and still use, their Icy Vision GPU cooler on my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 video card. Like with the GPU cooler the Rev2 Tanquillo's build quality was good and overall I was happy with my experience with the Rev2 Tranquillo. The Rev2 Tranquillo performs nicely at the lower CPU clocks, and does it silently. From a performance standpoint the GELID Rev2 Tranquillo is a nice option for those that want better than stock cooling and aren't trying squeeze every last megahertz they out of their system with extreme overclocking...

Seems like a nice cooler for $40. Looks good too. Seems like for the price though Xigmatek rules the roost. Their Dark Knight is routinely on sale at the Egg for $30-$40.

Would also like to note that in my attempts to find the Rev2 Tranquillo for sale I did find a couple sites that listed the cooler as being for sale. Looking closer is was in fact not the GELID Rev2 Tranquillo part number CC-TranQ-02-A, but rather the GELID Rev1 Tranquillo part number CC-TranQ-01-A even though the site was listing it as the Rev2. So care should be taken when shopping.


Puget Systems has been selling them for a few months now, but you're right -- we had the CC-TranQ-01-A model number! I've corrected that, and confirm it is the Rev2 we have in stock!

Go to hear!

Now that you've been selling it on your custom systems for a couple of months have any issues popped up?
