Overall the Rev2 Tranquillo stands 153mm tall and weighs in at 645g. The Rev2 Tranquillo is not overly big but it’s not the smallest cooler. Fitting most midtower and up cases should not be too much of an issue. The Rev2 Tranquillo is also set up to accept a single 120mm fan.

Each of the fins have a dimple pattern on them. The dimples increase the surface area of the fins and also causes turbulence between the fin. This turbulence keeps the air stirred up and increases the efficiency.
