ASUS Triton 81 for Core i7 Processors Spotted

ASUS plans to launch a fleet of CPU coolers compatible with the LGA-1366 socket, and the upcoming Core i7 processors from Intel. It's newest entry is the Triton 81. VR-Zone pixellated the cooler, which provides support for a broad range of sockets and processors.

The Triton 81 cooler consists of a nickel-plated copper CPU contact base, from which four heat-pipes convey heat to a dense array of aluminum fins. Dissipation is powered by a push-pull mechanism of two PWM-controlled fans that light up blue, on either side of the heatsink. ASUS claims that during normal operation, the cooler maintains a small acoustic footprint of 18 dB despite having two fans. It tips the scales at close to 700g. An official announcement from ASUS is expected.

Thats nothing IIRC the big thermalright cooler made from all copper is in excess of 1kg without fan. Around 500 grams is good for a cooler, my Xigma is about 600g I think.

I dont get how they are gonna control two PWM fans from one CPU header... :confused:

EDIT: make that 1.9kg :rolleyes: Thats the heaviest air cooler i have seen:

The TT V14 pro is almost a kilo and that uses the standard Socket 775 pins =

About two PWM fans to the header:

They probably have a splitter. I know of a certain company which are actually releasing this splitter to the retail market.

Wait I can mention the company/product. Here it is:

That weight includes 2 fans, so it's not that bad. Mine is 460g but comes with no fans, with two of them it would be close.
