    To cater to enthusiasts who enjoy DIY and assembling their own PCs, ASUS has announced the Triton Series of CPU Coolers – the Triton 70 and Triton 75. These two models incorporate innovative features that include high-density fins, dynamic fan speed control (Triton 70 only) and pure copper heat pipes that delivers efficient heat dissipation for the latest quad-core processors. With their lightweight and compact cooler sizes, the Triton series is compatible with a wide range of motherboards and chassis.

    AMD and Intel Multiple CPU Support
    The Triton series of CPU coolers support Intel® Core™2 Quad / Intel® Core™2 Duo, Intel Pentium® processor family, Intel® Pentium® 4 HT/Celeron® D CPUs, as well as AMD®’s Socket AM2/940/939, AthlonTM 64-FX, AthlonTM and SempronTM processors. The Triton 70 also incorporates a PWM function fan that can automatically modulate fan speeds according to the CPU temperature.

    Fun with DIY
    DIY computing has always had a following in the market, and the Triton CPU coolers are set to aid users who wish to do so. The Triton 70 provides the space for users to shift 8 and 9cm fans, and is also expandable for a second optional fan. The Triton 75 is ASUS´ first fan-less designed model that is compatible to all 12cm fans in the market – allowing gamers to freely choose any 12cm fan to suit their requirements. With such versatility, performance and noiselessness are all at the users´ control.

    Easy Installation
    Innovative assembly with specially designed push pins and clips make fastening easier than ever before. The Triton Series can also be easily installed by utilizing only 2 simple steps without removing the motherboard from the system.

    I just bought the Triton 70 for my Athlon X2 4200+ (939). This heatsink works really well for the price($39 US), but you have to be careful since the fan is exposed. Tie all your cables together so they will never come close to the fan.

    I'm using Asus A8N-SLI Premium, and overclocked my 4200+ from 2.2 to 3.0GHz (1.375v). Using Arctic Silver 5.

    28c-32c idle
    54c max (both cores stressed with Prime95 100% for 24hours)

    I used Core Temp and Speedfan to get temp readings. Any temp up to 60c is fine with me, since processor is rated up to 71c max. I am thinking on adding a second fan, just to have as a back up! If one goes out, processor will still be cooled. I like this heatsink!
