Asus Triton 75 CPU Cooler

Asus are one of the big players in the motherboard industry and are also known for their graphics cards. Today, however, we have one of their top-end coolers for Intel LGA 775 and AMD Socket 939/940/AM2.
Looking a little like a Thermalright solution and marketed as a passive cooler, we take a look and see what the performance is like and whether it's worth your money or not.
The packaging on the Triton 75 looks a little different to the normal plain, simple and modern feel of Asus's packaging. The cooler is shown on the box, along with a raft of features and information.
Coolers don't usually come with much apart from fittings and perhaps some paste and the Asus Triton 75 is no different. With the cooler being marketed as a silent solution I wasn't shocked not to see a fan in there, but admit to being a little skeptical as to whether it could pull off being 100% passive.

* Clips to attach a fan
* Asus branded thermal paste
Triton 75 supports the Intel® Core™ 2 Extreme/Core™ 2 Quad Quad-core CPU (LGA 775) and AMD Athlon™ 64 FX/X2 Dual-Core processors (939/940/AM2).
Fan-less Design to Satisfy All Your Requirements & DIY Fun
The Triton 75 is ASUS´ first fan-less designed model which is compatible to all 12 cm fans in the market. Gamers can choose any 12cm fan freely to satisfy their requiremenst and enjoy DIY fun.
*Recommend fan dimension : 120 x 120 x 25(mm)
*Recommend air flow : >45CFM
Fast Heat Transfer
Good combination of the copper base, fins and four copper heatpipes can efficiently transfer the heat to maintain the temperature for high-performance computing and stable operation.
Innovation in assembly with push pins and clip makes fastening easier than ever for both Intel and AMD users. No need to remove motherboard.
Lightweight than ever Your Request
The lightweight of Triton 75 is at only 395g that can place less stress on MB than ever
Not a bad spec, although 45CFM in a case with no 120mm fan on the cooler is a lot to ask...
