Titan has released two new thin CPU coolers with fans that can spin at very low speeds.
Titan has released two new CPU coolers, both part of the Dragonfly lineup. The first cooler, the Dragonfly 3, is built using a thin aluminum stack of fins, three heat pipes, and a 95 mm PWM controlled fan. This fan can spin at speeds ranging from 210 RPM all the way up to 2100 RPM, and achieve noise levels as low as 5 dBA. Its heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU's surface.
The Dragonfly 4 is the Dragonfly 3's bigger brother. It features a similar thin aluminum fin stack, but instead of three heat pipes, it has four. The fan is also a bit bigger at 120 mm but is also PWM controlled. This fan can spin at speeds ranging from 150 RPM up to 1500 RPM, and also makes less than 5 dBA of noise at the lowest speed setting.
Both the coolers make no more than 28.6 dBA of noise at the highest speed setting, and will be compatible with all of the commonly encountered sockets including the upcoming LGA 1150 socket. So far there has been no word on pricing or availability.
