Titan TTC-NH08 TB/932/PW
Titan has chosen the most unusual product name in the test field. What's printed on the packaging goes some of the way at least in explaining what the name means: it is a ball-bearing-mounted, temperature-regulated fan. However, it's impossible to decipher what the rest of the letters and numbers mean.
The Titan cooler is distinguished from the others by means of its black heatsink. In all other respects the heatsink offers nothing particularly new, and a practiced eye clearly recognizes the Intel reference design.
The Titan cooler is dressed all in black.
The only difference from Intel's ES heatsink is the color.
The Titan uses a 92 mm fan, also in black. An interesting color contrast is provided by a silver-colored fan grille and a similarly colored fan attachment. On closer inspection, however, the fan attachment turns out to be cheap plastic. What is notable, on the other hand, is the 30 cm long connector lead.
In contrast to the competitors' models, a little "DIY work" is required with the Titan cooler. The cooler's attachment clips must first be fitted.
A little DIY: the clips first have to be attached to the cooler.
The Titan cooler is really quiet in operation, coming in at just 45.2 dB(A), and even at maximum speed the cooler is not excessively loud at 49.3 dB(a). On the other hand, its thermal resistance of 0.63 K/W is clearly too high. Titan's cooler is available for $32 (32 €).
