GELID TRANQUILLO CPU COOLER INTRODUCTION
Consumers generally opt for aftermarket cooling for one of two reasons. Some want the enhanced cooling that these products can deliver, while others are after a quieter solution than the OEM cooler can deliver. While there is no shortage of aftermarket coolers to choose from, there is a new player in the market. Gelid Solutions has sent us their Tranquillo quad heatpipe CPU cooler for evaluation and, judging by the name they've chosen, it would appear that Gelid is targeting the quiet computing niche. Let's see how this new tower cooler performs.
