Asus Triton 75 CPU Cooler



Installation had it's ups and downs. The motherboard I was using (the XFX 650i Ultra) has a 3rd Party chipset cooler attached to it in the Thermalright HR-05. This caused a bit of a problem as detailed below:

The configuration of the board, combined with the coolers large size and the tower nature of the chipset cooler meant that I could not install the Triton 75 this way around. Luckily the cooler is pretty versatile and I switched it round as below:

Apart from this little niggle I felt that the Asus Triton 75 was very easy to install. The fact that you can actually get your fingers under the fins and get at the pins is very good, as opposed to a tower style cooler.

A little bit of a tight fit perhaps, but this is due to the motherboard rather than the cooler so much I think. Something to look out for though.

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.
