A Cool Bunch: How To Put A Lid On The Die Temperature Of Your Athlon

Failure Sets Off Alarm: Titan TTC-D5 TB

The TTC-D5 TB is a relatively quiet cooler offered by Titan.

The fan speed of the 80 millimeter fan stays below 3,000 rpm, limiting the soundscape to a fairly pleasant 49 dB(A).

The cooling capacity is more than enough for an Athlon XP 2000+ or an Athlon 1400 Thunderbird. We wouldn't put the cooler or the CPU through extreme overclocking adventures, though.

TTC-D5 TB: polished to a shine, with a buzzer in the cord.

A buzzer is integrated in the cord, which will sound an alarm if the fan breaks down. This feature won't do you much good if you're using an AMD CPU, because nobody in the world can shut down a computer before the CPU burns up.
