Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Titan builds the Fenrir with an all aluminium stack of 50 fins connected to four "U" shaped, 8mm heat-pipes that draw heat with direct contact to the CPU. The Fenrir will stand 156mm from the top of the CPU and weighs in at 790g without the fan. The Fenrir is accompanied by a 120mm, chromed fan. The outer housing is covered again in black over the chrome, which gives the fan a unique look; almost close to a black nickel look, which has been popular as of late. This fan is PWM controlled and Titan claims it runs at a quiet 17 dBA. Lastly, the Fenrir will mount to an LGA775 CPU and is also made to accommodate any AMD, socket 754 and later as well.
Titan released the Fenrir to the European markets last November and it is still proposed to hit the shelves in the U.S. as well. Google and Newegg both come up empty as far as trying to locate this cooler, even for an early listing in anticipation for arrival, but all to no avail at this time. As it is for now, if you live in the U.S. and plan to get the Fenrir, you may need to contact some of your overseas mates and see if they can locate one and send it to you. Just be aware of the time lost going through customs and any sort of import tax you may incur along the route.
Making contact with Titan and directly asking about the projected pricing, I was told that Titan expects to place the Fenrir on U.S. shelves with the retail price of around $60. While this price is a bit high, it seems to be an ongoing number that the newer coolers are releasing at. Still, at this time I can only speculate that the global economic situation is feeling a bit more pressure now and prices for resources are going up. This in turn has to be passed to the buyers, unfortunately.
