The performance of the Rev. 3 Tranquillo will more than likely exceed most user’s expectations and that is just fine with me. Looking at the cooler itself you wouldn’t expect too much from it unless you actually knew some of the history and design behind it. For the fact it features a single tower fin array the Rev. 3 Tranquillo is one of the best coolers of the sorts we have had the pleasure of testing for its type here at Play3r and in saying that, the results from the performance test for the Rev. 3 are not that far behind some of the AIO coolers we have previously tested which is amazing.
The design aspect of the Rev. 3 Tranquillo is a bit of a double-edged blade if you ask me. On one hand, it looks plain and simple and while that is not a bad thing, it doesn’t really grab one’s attention based on its looks alone. On the other side, Gelid have done something right as the performance it has to offer is outstanding and can be attributed to the overall design of the cooler. Gelid have used a unique heatpipe constellation and their Gelid PWM control which allows the Rev. 3 Tranquillo to offer maximum cooling performance.
The value this cooler has to offer is absolutely astounding! Coming in at just shy of £23 this is far from the most expensive cooler out there but it offers performance matching those that cost over twice as much which if you’re like me, will get you thinking. If Gelid can offer such a phenomenal performing product without charging a ridiculous amount for, what are consumers usually paying for? Well, it would appear a lot of the time users are paying for brands names and other things that may not always be necessary!
When all is said and done Gelid’s simple approach to the Rev. 3 Tranquillo goes a long way. It allowed them to keep their prices down and offer users great performance without breaking the bank, and oh yeah, it still comes with a 5-year warranty so if your brain works like mine, that is less than £5 a year, can’t complain about that.
I would like to thank Gelid for sending the Rev. 3 Tranquillo in for review and look forward to seeing more from them in the future.
