Gelid Tranquillo CPU Cooler

Stock may vary from item pictured. Retail pictures do not guarantee retail products.


The Tranquillo uses four power heat pipes and a special heat pipe constellation to achieve the best heat transfer from CPU core to the aluminium fins in its class and lower air flow resistance as much as possible. A very quiet but effective cooler!

The tower CPU Cooler Tranquillo uses four power heat pipes and a special heat pipe constellation to achieve the best heat transfer from CPU core to the aluminium fins in its class. After precise software simulation and calculation during the development stage, a unique heatsink shape was created to lower air flow resistance as much as possible.

The cooler is supplied with a very quiet 120mm fan. It features intelligent Gelid PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) control which has been chosen to make this heatsink more desirable. The fan blades are optimised to guarantee high airflow while running quietly. The intelligent Gelid PWM curve keeps the fan quiet when the system is idling or under low load but the fan speed will increase when additional cooling is needed. The multi-award winning high performance GC-2 thermal compound is also included in the package - making it a complete package to cool virtually any desktop CPU.

Additionally mounting clips for AMD 754, 939, 940, AM2, AM2+, AM3 and for Intel 775, 1366 and the latest 1156 sockets, providing compatibility with Intel LGA775, Core i5 and Core i7 motherboards are all included. The cooler is RoHS and WEEE conforming and carries a five year warranty.

Response by thomasr

 AMAZING!!! by Jeordan

This CPU cooler is abso amazing for £26 it's awesome, Keeps my Overclock i5 @ 3.4Ghz at idle 30 and after about 2hours of gaming it's around 40-45 mark.

You can't fault this cooler. Nice quiet 120mm fan 4 copper heat pipes, with a very smooth copper base. The thermal paste that comes with it is pritty good, But to drop the temps little more get some decent paste such as the Noctua one or artic.

Really easy to fine. Fuss free.

Fits in my R3 with loads of room left between the cooler and side panel.

Hi, will this cooler fit on a Foxconn Mars motherboard?



Answer by chriss on Monday, December 13, 2010
Hi provided there is sufficient clearance around your CPU socket it should be fine, it may be worth checking with Gelid support to guarantee compatability prior to purchase.
