Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Fenrir EVO is made from the same arrangement of fins and heat pipes as the other two are, no major changes in the basics. Where the EVO differs is in the color scheme most obviously. This time you will find a layer of twenty-two black fins stacked on top of ten gold fins, and then both of those are stacked above twenty more black fins. These fifty-two aluminum fins are all press fit onto the four, 8mm heat pipes. The "U" shaped heat pipes are held in place with a black anodized, aluminum base plate that allows the pipes to make direct contact with the processors IHS.
Along with the trend for silence, Titan accompanies the Fenrir EVO with a TFD-12025H12ZP, 120mm fan. Now, this fan can attain speeds of 2200 RPM and deliver up to 62 CFM of airflow. While doing all this, Titan says that it can accomplish both of these at a measly 15 dBA. The fan comes in a gold color and uses nine, kukri-shaped blades. The last couple of coolers we have tested have really started to set a new bar in our testing results; let's see how well Titan fairs. Strapping this cooler to your favorite system shouldn't be any problem; with the hardware included it can handle AMD sockets since 939/K8 and all Intel Sockets since LGA775.
I didn't receive any pricing info, but one would have to assume, since both previous versions are going for around $50, Titan would price the Fenrir EVO similarly. Since most of the products featured at Computex are all starting to make it to retail outlets now, keep an eye out for the new Fenrir, as it is also coming very soon to an e-tailer near you. If black and gold is your theme, and silence is a factor when you are choosing a cooler, I suggest you keep reading and see just how well this change up to the Fenrir really is.
