Titan Fenrir EVO TTC-NK85TZ/CS2(RB) CPU Cooler

The Titan Fenrir EVO TTC-NK85TZ/CS2(RB) CPU Cooler




Starting at the bottom, Titan used a black anodized base this time to hold the four, 8mm heat pipes in place. Once the heat is in the pipes it is carried into a fifty-two layer sandwich of black with a ten fin, gold midsection. The pipes are then cleanly terminated above the top fin.




From the side you can see the pipes are evenly spaced and the edge of this version remains open like the first two Fenrir models. You may also notice, there are no arrangements made to add a second fan to the EVO either, something I would have liked to have seen personally.




While the top fin is the only one to carry the Fenrir logo, all the fins underneath, both black and gold fins carry the edge dimples and the pressed in Titan logo. While the Titan logo is for looks, it will also help disturb the air in the body of the cooler, while the edge dimples will help to deflect the air back into the cooler and it should lose less air out the opened sides.




On top of the anodized base there is a cross pattern cut into the top. This is to hold the top half of the mounting hardware, and securely keep the CPU mounted.




Underneath, the pipes and aluminium base plate are milled at the same time. Now there are small gaps between the base and the pipes, but not near as big as some I have seen before. Against a razor, there is good contact from the outer two pipes and through the middle. Both outer pieces of aluminium are bevelled away from the IHS, but they don't make contact at this point of the base anyways.




The frame of this fan looks like the color of aged nickel, while the nine kukri shaped blades can push 62 CFM of air onto the EVO. With sheathed wire, and a 4-pin PWM connection, the fan can be bios and software controlled through the CPU header on the motherboard.




Just to verify the model of the 120mm fan for two reasons. One, so you can see the power draw. The second reason is in case you want to try to strap in another matching fan later. That is if you can find a successful way of mounting it.




From the side, with the use of the two metal fan mounts in the hardware, you can see the 120mm fan covers all of the fins quite well.




From the front, it's a bit tough to see, but if you look closely, you can see the fan not only covers from top to bottom, but the fan clears both sides as well. With the shape of the fins and the indents in each of them, it gives this ultra quiet fan a good chance of still producing good results.
