VR Zone has all the details about the upcoming ASUS Triton 81 processor cooler. This new cooler is the first one from ASUS with support for Intel's LGA1366 Core i7 processor. Besides the Nehalem, the cooler also supports Intel LGA775 and AMD Socket 939/940/1027/1207+/AM2/AM2+ processors.
The Triton 81 features a copper base, four copper heatpipes and aluminium fins. It measures 120.5mm (L) x 117.6mm (W) x 144.7mm (H), weighs 695g and has a silent 90mm fan with a noise level of just 18dBA during normal operation.
With the advancement of computational and processor power comes a worry that each user has to face—overheating. To combat this problem, ASUS has launched the new ASUS Triton 81—the latest member of the Triton family of highly effective thermal solutions. Capable of supporting powerful Quad-Core™ processors as well as the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processor (LGA 1366), it is equipped with an exclusive 4-way airflow heatsink design and dual-fan technology for highly efficient CPU cooling; while a diamond-blue LED provides aesthetic appeal for DIY and overclocking enthusiasts.
Unimpeded 4-way Airflow Design for Impressive Overclocking
The Triton 81 utilizes an exclusive 4-way airflow heatsink design to create an unobstructed passage of air circulation; and together with 4 U-shaped copper heatpipes for the most efficient heat transference, delivers ultimate cooling performance for a myriad of processor intensive applications and modifications.
Dual-Fan Technology for Maximum Airflow
Equipped with a diamond-blue LED with dual 90mm fans, the Triton 81 provides an effective channel of airflow to the system, delivering vital thermal protection for stable operations. Despite its powerful performance, the Triton 81 is a relatively silent yet effective performance component—running at a mere 18 dBA with its built-in PWM function, which automatically adjusts fan speeds according to the CPU’s temperature for an optimal operating environment.
To keep up with both current and future gaming and processor technologies, the Triton 81 is also able to support multiple applications—and with support for the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processor (LGA 1366), DIY and gaming enthusiasts the world over will be able to easily utilize it to help push the potential of their computers faster than ever before.
