Asus Triton 75 CPU Cooler



The Asus Triton is a competent cooler, but only once you add a fan to it. I think Asus have made a mistake marketing it as a fanless design and not including a fan in the package. If you're a quiet PC freak then I would look elsewhere.

However, combine the Triton with a decent fan and it does do well. Whether you want to get one is up to personal choice. Lack of a fan included might put you off or it might mean you can choose your own and not use the manufacturers own.

Value-wise, around £25 UK RRP is pretty good for a cooler of this stature, but I don't know how much there is for the Asus Triton 75 to stand out in a market saturated with excellent coolers.

I'm going to recommend the cooler, with the proviso of using a 3rd Party fan to the mix.

Recommended Award

The Good

+ Good performance with a fan added
+ Nice looking design
+ Easy to install

The Mediocre

* Could obstruct chipset cooling on some motherboards
* Price a little high considering no fan is included

The Bad

- No fan included
- Not a "stand out" cooler

Thanks to Asus for the review sample

Nice review

I thought the perfomance would be better without a fan.Quote

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.

Great job as ever kemp!Quote
