Titan TTC-CU9TB/SC Copper Heatsink Review
Titan TTC-CU9TB/SC Copper Heatsink Review
Abstract: When it comes to application, the Pentium4 version would seem to be better suited to that processor than the AthlonXP, as you'll see in the results below.

Titan TTC-CU9TB/SC Heatsink From All Angles
The Fan: To protect the fan from inhaling a molex connector which could jam the impeller, the Titan TTC-CU9TB/SC comes with a clear plastic fan grill. While this compliments the whole translucent fan frame, I've always been partial to the wire fan grills. Wire grills don't affect airflow at all, while squared off ones like this may. The fan connects to standard 3-pin fan header on the motherboard, and supports RPM monitoring.

Heatsink Top:
With the fan removed we can see the chrome plated fan shroud and interlocking copper fins below. These assemblies of fins have become really popular of late, and given that they also increase assembly speed are probably part of the reason why copper heatsinks have come down in price to very reasonable levels. Each fin measures roughly 0.2mm thick, and is spaced 1mm apart.

Side A:
The chromed fan support and shroud attaches directly to the copper base with four screws. The shroud doesn't appear to have been designed to direct fan exhaust back towards the outer fins of the heatsink.The copper fins are 31mm tall, and 70mm long. The clip mechanism is pretty easy to use, and locks into all three tabs on the edge of the socket.

Side B:
From the edge of the Titan TTC-CU9TB/SC you can really appreciate just how thin those copper fins are. About 1mm of the base of each fin is soldered into a very thin grove cut into the copper base. The copper base plate measures 6mm thick.

Heatsink Base:

With the copper base is only 45mm x 63mm in size, which leaves 19mm worth of fin hanging out over either side. The copper base is polished to a mirror finish, but is hardly flat. The polishing process had given the once flat copper base a wavy appearance. While surface smoothness is excellent, surface flatness is almost more important of a consideration...
