In my short time of doing CPU cooler reviews, I have seen some coolers do really well and a few others that have fallen flat on their face trying to keep up with the crowd. Some of these coolers arrive highly anticipated, while others have arrived without much knowledge on that specific cooler. Titan is one of the latter companies for me, as up until now I haven't even looked at their website.
While Titan has been around since 1992 serving the PC community with their aftermarket coolers and have also recently introduced a few new innovations, it's a company that has slipped past my radar until now. Titan is based in Taipei and has, since its inception, made big steps to take a place amongst more prominent manufacturers; this by adding a USA and Germany branch to help get their products around the globe. With all the advances of Titan, they have managed to acquire 20,000m² factory floor space and over 1100 workers at this time to keep production up, so that the end user can find these products on store shelves.
Today we have the Fenrir, the first 120mm tower style cooler from Titan, as their main listing of coolers shows they normally submit coolers with a fan on top blowing towards the motherboard. While this concept and style of cooler has been done before, this is Titan's first attempt to introduce a said style cooler to the market. Not personally having tested Titans products myself, at this point I don't have any idea what to expect in the performance or build quality of Titan, but we will soon get to those aspects.
The name Fenrir comes from old 13th century Norse legend and it's roughly translated to a monstrous wolf. With this extra bit of history, it will help explain the imagery found on the packaging and cooler itself, as you are about to see. With a Name like Fenrir, maybe Titan plans to unleash the Fenrir to devour the competition. Either way, with a name like monstrous wolf, it only stands to think this cooler may bring good things to the table, as far as performance goes. It is now that time where I get the camera ready and hop to the task at hand to show you what the Titan Fenrir has to offer.
