Rated 5 out of 5 by sendog it cools my cpu, like it's supposed to do.
was sent this because the coolermaster evo 212 was out of stock. was emailed and told about the cooler i wanted not being available and was told this would be a suitable replacement. used in my first pc build and have had no issues at all.
the cooler is pretty big so maybe wont fit in all cases. mine is in a zalman z3 plus and fits fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Upul Gelid Tranquillo Rev.2 low cost extremely quiet haswell cpu cooler
I wanted to build a very quiet i7 4770k ,16-32GB PC .
Read lot of reviews of air and water cooling systems and decided to buy Gelid Tranquillo Rev.2 air cooler due to its dbA 12-25.55 very low noise levels at idle and peak loads.
This cooler uses a 120mm fan and decided to buy corsiar DDR3 vengeance low profile memory for ease of installation.
There are couple of good youtube video's showing how to install this fan as the installation could get bit fiddly. Once installed it was so silent I can't hardly hear the fan even at full load.
Intel Core i7 4770K, S1150, Haswell, Quad Core, 3.5GHz
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H, Intel Z87, S 1150
Gelid Tranquillo Rev.2 Heatpipe PWM, Silent Fan
32GB (4x8GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Low Profile Jet Black PC3-12800 (1600)
2GB MSI GTX 770 Twin Frozr Gaming, 1 £248.12
250GB Samsung 840 EVO D'top Upg Kit
2TB WD WD20EZRX Green 3.5" HDD, SATA III 6Gb/s
680W be quiet! Straight Power E9 CM BN199, 93% Eff', 80 PLUS Gold,ATX v2.3, PSU
Antec Nine Hundred hardcore gaming case
Gigabyte M6800 Optical Gaming Mouse, 1600dpi, 5 Button USB
Zalman MP500 Small Gaming Mouse Pad
Every component was selected after comparing the size, decibel noise level and the quoted temperature figures in the reviews and specifications.
I recommend this cpu cooler to anyone who wants to build a power full very quiet almost inaudible pc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skila Quiet and cool, fiddly to fit.
The instructions for this fan were slightly confusing as they tell you to put the insulated side of the base plate on the underside of your motherboard. Only problem is that both the plate and the feet are insulated.
Attaching the fan to the cooler is also quite difficult and the illustration does not indicate very clearly which way the springs attach.
However, the fan is very quiet for a good price. Have not really challenged it temperature wise yet, so cannot comment on the cooling capability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by coke Gelid Tranquillo Rev.2 Heatpipe PWM, Silent Fan
this cpu cooler, in my opinion, is excellent. it is not too difficult, even for a 78 year old like me, to install. it is very quiet. it keeps my intel i7 3770k, on an asus p8 z77 board, overclocked to 4.45ghz at a steady operation at temperatures from 30 to 40 degrees. eric retired

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adam Very quiet. Great at cooling.
Very large. Make sure it will fit in your case before you buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caroline Very quiet fan. Easy to fit on a new build.
Very big - may need mounting in case. Some hassle to fit it to an existing sytem. Both are minor points for me.
