Gelid announces Tranquillo CPU cooler

Four heatpipes for both AMD and Intel
Gelid has revealed a new CPU cooler that will be a part of its Silent product lineup, the Tranquillo. Tranquillo supports every current CPU from either AMD or Intel, including the latest Core i7 and Core i5 lineup.
Gelid's Tranquillo features four heatpipes and comes with a single 120mm hydro dynamic bearing fan that spins from 750 to 1500RPM with a maximum sound output of 25.5dBA. The Tranquillo weighs 645g, and has an aluminium fin array connected to the copper base via four copper heatpipes.
Thanks to, what Gelid calls, the intelligent PWM curve, Tranquillo can keep the fan silent when additional cooling isn't required and accelerate it when CPU heats to the certain level. It supports AMD's 754/939/940/AM2/AM2+ as well as Intel's 775/1366/1156 with included back plate.
Tranquillo features a five year warranty and comes bundled with Gelid's GC-2 thermal compound. The best part of this cooler is its aggressive MSRP of US $38 and €28. With such a price Gelid's Tranquillo certainly sounds like a nice substitute for box coolers.
