Conclusion:  

The ASUS Triton 85 CPU Cooler is not only a great looking piece of hardware that you could get to help cool that processor of yours, which keeps overheating from the stock cooling solution, it is also able to run very quietly, between 16 and 25dBa. I was very impressed with how silent the Triton 85 was; when it comes to some of the other 120mm CPU coolers that are out on the market, the Triton 85 seemed to be the most silent. Even with the silent operation of the cooler, it was able to keep the processor from overheating and kept it pretty cool when compared to some of the other coolers. When you put it up against some of the other proven coolers, especially the other 120mm HSF Solution, it did not triumph, though it did hang in there at just a few degrees higher. This could be because of the size of the copper base; I am uncomfortable with the base being the exact same width as the IHS on my E6600. The other possible reason is because of the tool-less installation solution, while this is a plus because you do not have to worry about over-tightening the cooler to the motherboard and cracking it, the pressure of the cooler being connected to the processor could be low, resulting in a not as good tight contact between the two surfaces. I was very impressed with the overall look of the Triton 85, as well as the fact that the base and the heatpipes were made out of copper, which is always a good thing to use when it comes to cooling a hot item. I would suggest the ASUS Triton 85 to anyone who is looking for a new cooler to upgrade to, especially if they are coming from a stock cooler and are not going to be overclocking the processor very aggressively.

 

Pros:

  • Tool-less installation
  • Temperatures (overall)
  • Sleek design
  • Lightweight
  • 120mm fan (silent)
  • Copper base
  • Copper heatpipes
  • Noise

 

Cons:

  • Tool-less installation
  • Tiny base
  • Temperatures (compared against other 120mm HSF solutions)
