Specifications, Availability and Pricing

 

 

The Triton 75 is a four heatpipe cooler with a copper base and uses aluminum fins to dissipate heat. As you will soon see the cooler is designed to pass air from above and push it down to the motherboard. This will allow the fan to cool the all important VRM heatsinks we are seeing on modern production motherboards. This is of course only if a fan is used though.

 

ASUS has included additional hardware to attach a 120mm fan to the cooler. ASUS recommends a fan that produces 43.5 CFM, but today we are going to be testing the cooler with a low noise fan from Nexus' Basic Series.

 

The Nexus Basic Series 120mm fan makes 36.87 CFM while only producing 22.8 dB(A). With acoustics this low you will not be able to hear the fan outside of the chassis and it can be considered whisper quiet down to six inches away from the fan.

 

The ASUS Triton 75 can be had in the U.S. for a little less than $40 USD, but when purchasing an aftermarket fan the cost will increase due to the additional purchase. Most users will have an extra 120mm fan sitting on a shelf at home and the Triton 75 can accept just about any 120mm variant.
