Final Thoughts

Unleashing a wolf is exactly what I feel Titan did with the release of the Fenrir. Not actually believing the testing results initially, I ran them twice to confirm reality and both tests were a match. While I know this cooler isn't so efficient at idle, it is because the fan is spinning at a very low 800 RPM to manage noise levels, so I can let that slide. I can always change my BIOS settings and lower the idle temperatures if I wanted to. The load test is where the Fenrir really starts to devour some of the competition; just edging out the Thor's hammer and falling just short of the Z600R, two of our latest great performers.

While all the concepts of the Fenrir have been done and seen in other coolers up to this point, Titan has gotten the formula right on with the Fenrir. The shape and design of the fins, the correct noise to performance ratio of the fan, to the cool wolf-like image on the cooler; Titan has a winner on their hands. The cooler doesn't bring a ton of "flash" to the party, but I will say it can dance with a few of the best. Considering the asking prices of both of the previously mentioned coolers, I do have to say the Fenrir is priced right at a $60 U.S. dollar price tag.

I did only find one issue with the Fenrir overall. This is the fact that the top two fins don't get secured by all eight tips of the heat-pipes. The fins themselves didn't fall off; they are secure on the four heat-pipes that do fully extend through all the fins. The issue I see as a possibility is vibration of the outer fin edges as the fan builds up a little dust and starts to vibrate itself a bit. I had no vibrations during my time of testing, so only time will answer this issue.
