    Exclusive Twin-pillared Design and 120mm Inner-fan for 180W Overclocking Support
    The Triton 88 utilizes an exclusive twin-pillared heatsink design that; when combined with the 120mm inner-fan, will help in lowering temperatures and create powerful air-cooled performance for extreme overclocking of up to 180W. Furthermore, with the fan positioned within the heatsink, VRM can be protected against high temperatures with the guiding of cool air to critical components near the CPU—ensuring system stability.

    Massive Heat Dissipation Area of up to 8000cm2 for Optimal Cooling
    To provide the best heat dissipation, the Triton 88 is also equipped with a massive heat dissipation area of up to 8000cm2; while 6 high conductive copper heatpipes and the 120mm LED fan provides maximum airflow and optimal cooling performance. This will ensure that enthusiasts worldwide will be able to enjoy overclocking of up to 180W without an inkling of concern. Furthermore, the Triton 88 is equipped with a PWM function that is able to automatically adjust the fan speed according to the CPU’s temperature—providing low acoustics during operation.

    Up-to-date Application
    To keep up with future gaming and processor technologies, the Triton 88 not only supports multiple applications, and but also the latest Intel Core i7 processor (LGA1366). DIY and gaming enthusiasts worldwide can now easily utilize this top-notch cooler to help ensure that their own PC systems can run faster and more stable than ever before.

    Kind of resembles the CM V8 cooler...somewhat. I expect this to come in around 60 to 80 USD which is too damn much.
