Final Thoughts

 

Aside from a couple of motherboard manufacturers, most mid range to high end motherboards come with a black PCB and more than likely there is copper heat pipes keeping your chipsets and CPU power delivery system cool. Titan has EVOlved their original concept into a cooler to match almost 75% of the boards made. This is a good thing, I mean you can get black nickel coated coolers, but those will tend to oxidize and show finger prints. Titans black anodized fins don't show near the same amount of prints, and still looks as it did when I pulled it out of the box. Sandwiching the band of ten gold fins into the body of the cooler is a nice look, but likely isn't going to be seen in a typical case. The big gold Fenrir logo will though, so you do still get that to match the fan.

 

I am all for manufacturers trying to offer tower coolers that perform well, better than average in this case, but in doing so, the fan doesn't make your ears bleed. It used to be that in order to attain good cooling on most of the older designs, you needed a 90+ CFM fan to make it happen and two work even better. After years of my right ear taking abuse from the various coolers I used to use, it makes me happy that I can actually recommend budget friendly, silent coolers now. It used to be that you had to go to coolers like the Noctua line up and prepare to spend a fair bit more to do so. Today coolers like the Titan Fenrir EVO offer silent operation and at a very efficiency level. Just think, if silence isn't an issue to you, you can find yourself that 100+ CFM Delta fan and temperatures will get even better.

 

The Fenrir EVO is nice to look at, easy to install on both AMD and Intel motherboards, and offers very low noise levels. If, when it does hit the shelves, it stays around the $50 the first two versions are priced at, The Fenrir EVO is a formidable foe to coolers like the Jing, Frio, V6GT and sits just behind the H50. For me that list has its issues. The Jing is green, but is still silent, the Frio is black, but noisy and the same can be said for the V6GT. The H50 is in a slightly different league as it may fit where the Fenrir EVO cannot, but the EVO is definitely cheaper. It's good to see that the Frenrir EVO, even with its new ultra silent fan, still can outperform the original. If I were in the market for a slick looking cooler with very little noise and efficiency in the top half of our listings, I would definitely add the Titan Fenrir EVO to my list of coolers to buy.
