Titan Hati TTC-NC15TZ/KU(RB) CPU Cooler - Final Thoughts

Titan has had great success with the Fenrir series of coolers and now brings us the latest version in the Hati.

Final Thoughts

 

The results are in, and to be dead honest, I'm really not all that impressed. I didn't expect the Hati to be that much better than the Fenrir coolers, but with all the tricks incorporated in this design and the fact that I did test the Hati with two fans, I am still left wanting in the performance segment of the testing, but I am an extremist and I don't think this cooler is directed at me. This cooler is directed at those who don't mind running a mild overclock or those who are running stock and still want the option of silence. As far as that is concerned, the Hati is very successful in the lack of noise that emanates from the cooler even with two fans on it.

 

Something I have to shed light on that happened to my last sample is that the heat pipes actually collapsed during normal usage. I sent images and an explanation of the issue to Titan and have yet to get a reply from them about the situation. While I may have gotten a bad sample, I may also have gotten a sample that was thinned for better performance. Either way, it is an issue to be aware of! The fact that I got no reply from them on this matter just makes it that much worse. So where I am left is torn with if I should go ahead and assume it was a onetime issue, and I can go ahead and say this might be the cooler for you. The way I see it is that I can't rightfully advise you buy the Fenrir Evo that I had issues with and just hope the issue has been looked at.

 

As I said, the US market won't see this cooler for just a bit longer, but if you are on the other side of the globe, your access to this cooler may be feasible. If the pricing comes out at under $40 for the Hati I can say it is worth it as a stock replacement that provides much better temperatures and silent operation. With all the information at hand with possible manufacturing issues, and the average performance of the Hati, you can make a fully educated decision on if the Hati is or isn't the cooler to spend your hard earned dollars on.
