Conclusion:

After the testing, I have come to the conclusion that the Triton 77 does better than the stock Intel cooling solution. It provided a temperature six degrees cooler under load when running the CPU at stock volts. Unfortunately, things get toasty quite fast when the voltages creep higher, to the tune of 73 Celsius under load when overclocked. This points out that this cooler is not for sustained high voltage, high clock speed operation. On the other hand, where it does do well is as a stock replacement cooler that provides an improvement in temperatures with no noise penalty. In fact, I could not even hear the fan running over the power supply that was used in the test setup - both are dead silent. I found myself reaching under the Triton 77 just to verify the fan was indeed running. The testing that was run was based on using a Quad core processor. The temperatures delivered should be better with a dual core processor, since the heat load is not as high, which should make the Triton 77 ideal for cooling those processors. If you need a silent cooling solution and are running at stock voltages or just above that threshold, the Triton 77 will provide a cooling benefit and reduce the temperatures of not only the CPU, but help in cooling the components surrounding the CPU socket. Modestly priced, it does what it is intended to do, just not when pushed to the extreme side of the envelope.

 

Pros:

  • Modestly priced
  • Better than stock cooling
  • Updraft design
  • 5 heatpipes
  • Multi socket compatability
  • Silent

 

Cons:

  • Not for massive overclocks or voltages
