Titan TTC-D9TBCu35-R1 Copper Core Heatsink Review
seen quite a flurry of activity from Titan in recent weeks, with many new
mainstream heatsinks hitting the streets. The TTC-D9TBCu35-R1 breaks from this
mold slightly, and offers consumers a low-noise cooling solution for mainstream
PCs. The large 35mm thick 80x80mm fan produces barely a whisper of noise as it
calmly exhausts air down into the many aluminum fins of the heatsink. To further
improve thermal performance of this heatsink given the low amount of air being
moved by the fan, Titan have imbedded a small 35mm diameter copper disc in the
base of the
Copper is one of the most popular ways for heatsink manufacturers to give
their cooler a little extra kick when it comes to improving thermal efficiency.
Whether or not this helps the Titan TTC-D9TBcu35-R1 stand up to the other low noise
heatsinks in our reference list remains to be seen, but at just 37.6 dBA, we can
already tell you this heatsink is very quiet indeed.

Like all Titan
heatsinks we have tested in the last few weeks, the TTC-D9TBcu35-R1 comes bundled with
its own PCI bracket fan speed controller.
Since the controller has jacks for a standard 3-pin fan
connector and fan can be used with it, and if you'd rather
put it aside that will also work. The heatsink and the fan speed
controller are two separate items so unlike other coolers, you can leave it out
of your PC should you wish to.
around back of the PC to adjust the fan speed is not
going to be fun to do all the time, but if you install
it the bracket, check for noise levels, and then make your adjustments you can
pretty much just forget about it altogether. In any case, while the location for
mounting the fan speed controller may not be convenient, it is a pretty good
little unit, and seems rather well made all things considered.
