After a run of below average coolers I am glad to be working with ASUS' Triton 75 today. The Triton Series currently has four CPU coolers flying under the brand and the 75 is the only passive cooler from the group.
I really don't understand ASUS' branding when it comes to the Triton as none of the coolers resemble another and the design of each is very different. There isn't anything wrong with radically changing the design from one cooler to the other and I am only mentioning it because we reviewed the Silent Knight II from ASUS and found it to be an evolution of the original Silent Knight. From what I can tell the Triton Series is progressing in revolutions when moving from one generation to the next.
As mentioned before the Triton 75 is a passive cooler. ASUS includes all of the hardware needed to attach a 120mm fan to the cooler. Assuming that most users will be adding a fan we are going to test the Triton 75 with a 120mm fan; also our testing method does not generate additional airflow found in a typical enclosure since we are succeeding in building a database void of variables.
Let's dive in and see what ASUS has built for their typical PC users, first taking a closer look at what she looks like.
