Asus released a new cooler today for the latest Intel Core 2 and AMD Athlon 64 processors. The firm says the Triton 77 features a special up-way air flow cooling technology which should enhance the cooling efficiency by up to 15%.
With ASUS’ innovative Up-way air flow cooling technology, the Triton 77 provides up to 15% enhanced cooling efficiency by rapidly transferring heat directly from the CPU and dissipating it out from the chassis with the case fan. Additionally, it also carries the heat produced by the VRM (Voltage regulation modules) surrounding the CPU to reduce their temperature by
10-15˚C for system reliability and stability./
The heatsink weighs 505g, it features a copper base, five heatpipes and aluminum fins. The 92mm fan is mounted under the heatsink but airflow or noise specifications aren't available.
You better wait for a couple of reviews though as these unique cooling technologies don't always work as well as advertised.
