Asus Triton 75 CPU Cooler

A closer look

Close up and personal - Asus Triton 75

Asus have gone for the classic heatpipe and fins design on the Triton 75. The heatpipes stem from the all-copper base and wind up through the fins, ending up horizontal to the base. This design is very similar to the hugely popular Thermalright XP120, one which manufacturers have moved a little away from in deference to tower coolers.

Looking a bit closer in at the side of the cooler shows that Asus have chosen to press the fins in at the side creating a smooth finish.

Asus have added an extra retention mechanism for the heatpipes, keeping them from bending under stress, always a good move.

Four fairly thick copper heatpipes adorn the Triton, making it quite a one for taking up room in your case. Most shouldn't have a problem with size, but check the installation page for a couple of issues I had.

The base is not finished to a mirror finish and has some machining marks on it. After testing with some glass and a few drops of water I found the base was pretty flat and after checking contact with some thermal paste everything seemed to connect correctly. A mirror finish is nice, but certainly not needed as long as the cooler is flat.

Me too, but Asus themselves didn't seem to think anything was remiss so I suppose it's normalQuote

At least they're trying new designs, not just re-branding other companies stuff like a certain company.

i like this, they've taken heatpipes, like on the scythe infinity, and done some sort of mash up with a thermalright SI 120 lol
