Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The TTC-NC15TZ/KU(RB) which I will refer to as the Hati hereon is based on a three 8mm heat pipe design. These heat pipes make direct contact to the processor and are held in place with an aluminum base plate. The pipes are then bent to make their way through fifty-five aluminum fins that are pressed on over the pipes. The sides of the fins are enclosed in this cooler adding strength, proper spacing, and the ability to use "wasted air" that most coolers don't capture. Like a cherry on top of a sundae, Titan finishes off the look of the cooler by adding chrome caps to the top of the six pipe tips that pass through the top fin.
Inside the box you will find the Hati is shipped with a TFD-12025H12ZP/KU(RB) or Kukri Fan. This fan is capable of speeds from 800 to 2200 RPM and can produce up to 66.6 CFM of air flow. As I mentioned, silence is the key here, and the Kukri fan will run with a maximum rating of 35 dBA of noise level. When the fans are installed, they use unique fan mounts that isolate the fan from the cooler to reduce vibrations to aid in keeping noises at bay. So we can test the cooler with a push/pull configuration, Titan also shipped a second fan with the same model number as the included fan in the Hati box.
At this time I hear that the Hati is only on shelves in China, and aren't yet available for other markets. This leaves me having to guess on the pricing as well. Judging by a few factors such as what the cooler is made of, the amount of heat pipes, and the fans included in the kit, I would have to assume that by the time the Hati makes it to the US market it will be priced under the $45 pricing that you can find for the original Fenrir cooler. From what I have seen in what the cooler is made of, and the fact that I already saw the performance numbers, the Hati would be best priced in the sub-$40 segment of air coolers. Enough with the guess work, let's get to what I can show you as fact and let you make and educated call on whether or not the Hati will be the next CPU cooler for you!
