Gelid has announced the launch of its latest Tranquillo design, bringing the popular tower cooler up to Revision 4 and boasting improved performance over its predecessors.
While retaining the same overall design as the Tranquillo Rev. 3, Gelid's Tranquillo Rev. 4 is claimed to have plenty of improvements over earlier designs. Chief among these are a redesigned fin stack shape which is claimed to reduce airflow resistance, improved heat transfer via direct-contact heatpipes, and higher-quality soldered connections between the heatpipes and the fin stack.
The design tweaks aren't exclusive to the metal portion of the bundle, either: Gelid claims the included 120mm fan is better than ever before thanks to what the company calls its 'Double Layer Blade Technology
,' capable of improving airflow at lower speeds. Coupled with a redesigned pulse-width modulation (PWM) circuit which eliminates the annoying clicking sound of earlier incarnations, Gelid claims the Tranquillo Rev. 4 is quieter than ever from 750rpm to 1,600rpm - and mounts are included for a second fan at the rear of the heatsink, if required.
The Tranquillo Rev. 4 is due to hit the channel shortly, priced at €29 (around £22 excluding taxes.) More information is available on the official website
