Asus Triton 75 CPU Cooler
Published: 8th October 2007 | Source: Asus | Price: UK R.R.P. £25 |
The Asus Triton is a competent cooler, but only once you add a fan to it. I think Asus have made a mistake marketing it as a fanless design and not including a fan in the package. If you're a quiet PC freak then I would look elsewhere.
However, combine the Triton with a decent fan and it does do well. Whether you want to get one is up to personal choice. Lack of a fan included might put you off or it might mean you can choose your own and not use the manufacturers own.
Value-wise, around £25 UK RRP is pretty good for a cooler of this stature, but I don't know how much there is for the Asus Triton 75 to stand out in a market saturated with excellent coolers.
I'm going to recommend the cooler, with the proviso of using a 3rd Party fan to the mix.
+ Good performance with a fan added
+ Nice looking design
+ Easy to install
* Could obstruct chipset cooling on some motherboards
* Price a little high considering no fan is included
- No fan included
- Not a "stand out" cooler
Thanks to Asus for the review sample
