Product Overview

Effective Heat Transfer

The tower CPU Cooler “Rev. 4 Tranquillo” uses 4 power heat pipes and a special heat pipe constellation to achieve best heat transfer from CPU core to the aluminium fins in its class.

Higher Cooling Performance

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.

Fast, Silent, Expandible

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.

Enhanced Heatpipe Direct Touch

With the Rev.4 Tranquillo, the CPU surface is directly touching the heatpipes, so heat is transferred much more quickly than of a typical heatsink with heatpipes attached to a copper base-plate. The gapless packing of the precisely machined heatpipes also assure the highest possible quality of thermal connection between CPU and heatpipes. There is no internal resistance between heatpipes and 100% efficiency of heat transfer.

Stack Fin Soldering

Unlike the other heatsinks, the Rev.4 Tranquillo features a greatly improved technology, Stack Fin Soldering, which assures the most efficient thermal contact between heatpipes and fins thanks to the special solder joints. The solder joints provide the highest thermal conductivity, so heat is transferred efficiently in those parts of the heatsink too. The solder joints also support a stronger mechanical integrity of the heatsink.

Nickel Plating

Poor quality of the fin surface often results in dirty or corroded fins which worsen heat conduction and limit the heatsink thermal performance considerably. The Rev.4 Tranquillo has an improved nickel plating which guaranties ultra-durable quality of the fin surface, and therefore, secures the most efficient heat transfer on the fins.

Intel Branding Part I
Intel Branding Part I
Date Issued: 1st Jul 2009

Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.
