The market is resourceful, plentiful and even a little saturated when it comes to CPU coolers. And you know what? That's just great as a matter of fact as that means you can get heatpipe coolers starting at 35 USD already, offering very decent performance combined with silent cooling. I mean that's what it's all about. Heatpipe based cooling was designed with silence in mind.
The Titan Fenrir is another mainstream heatpipe based CPU cooler and a pretty reasonable one too: 17dBA operation, 160W thermal load, universal socket support, PWM function, four 8mm heat pipes, and a 12cm fan. Oy not bad .. let's check it out to see where it stands in terms of price versus performance.
