Titan made a little brother to the Fenrir CPU cooler. Come inside and have a look at the Skalli.

The Skalli is quite a bit smaller than the Fenrir by dimensions alone. This in turn will leave less surface area to cool because the fins are smaller, too. The Skalli utilizes a relatively quiet 100mm fan to do all the dirty work. This fan blows air across this 56 fin setup to remove the heat that the two, 8mm heat pipes deliver to those fins. Said heat pipes are exposed to the CPU's IHS and are held into position with an aluminum surround. The aluminum block is also where you will find the mounting holes for the various AMD and Intel mounting arrangements. The list at Titan has been condensed in this chart, but let's just say it has the potential to mount to all the typical sockets post AMD socket 745, as long as they don't exceed the 130W limit of the Skalli.


I mentioned that the Skalli was cooled with a 100mm fan. This fan is mounted to the Skalli with a setup I don't run across too often, where the wire fan mounts terminate into the top and bottom fins. Some may think, isn't that going to cause vibrations during operation? My reply is no. Titan took an extra step and inserted rubber grommets into the holes in the fins to keep chatter to a minimum. Going even one step further, as with only a select few manufacturers, Titan has also padded the back of the fan in each mount position to keep the fan off the face of the fins as well.


Titan has been sort of slow on the release of the Skalli. I typically tend to get a cooler sample and shortly thereafter there is the cooler at Newegg or many other quality e-tailers, but not this time. As it stands currently, the Skalli is still planned to be released, but I am unable to find it in any US retail outlet. I do, however, know that the MSRP in the US is said to be a mere $29.99. As we all know, MSRP doesn't always hold all the way through to the e-tailers and I bet through careful searching, you will be able to acquire this cooler for even less.
