GELID introduces its fourth-generation Tranquillo cooler. This model features four direct-touch copper heatpipes and an aluminium fin array that's cooled by a silent 120mm PWM fan. The heatsink measures 62mm x 128mm x 154mm (L x W x H) and the HSF weighs 580g in total.
The Tranquillo Rev.4 comes with a five-year warranty and is compatible with most AMD and Intel desktop platforms. Pricing will be $39 (29EUR).
Like the original design the Rev. 4 Tranquillo uses 4 power heat pipes and a unique heat pipe constellation but also comes with a number of new technologies implemented to achieve higher cooling performance. The Rev. 4 Tranquillo features the Heatpipe Direct Touch Technology, a direct thermal connection between CPU core and heat pipes. The new heatsink is also improved with the Unique Heatsink Shape Technology, the result of precise software simulations and calculations which makes the air flow resistance of the new heatsink much lower. The Stacked Soldered Heatpipe and Fin Technology provides the best quality of soldered joints between heatpipe to fins and ensures the most efficient heat transfer inside the new heatsink.
An improved 120mm fan with the intelligent GELID PWM (Pulse Width Module) control compliments the heatsink. The new Double Layer Blade technology is applied to distribute air flow efficiently at low speed. The redesigned PWM IC eliminates any clicking noise. The intelligent GELID PWM curve operates the fan in speed range from 750 RPM to 1600 RPM, it constantly keeps the fan silent but accelerates speed whenever additional cooling is needed. With the 2 sets of fan mounts, a second fan can be installed to improve the cooler performance even further.
