Titan Fenrir TTC-NK85TZ Heatsink Review
Overall Rating:   89%
Abstract: Titan's TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir heatsink stands 156mm tall, is 124mm wide and accommodates one 120mm fan that spins at 800~2200 RPM. Weighing it at roughly 550grams, the TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir is compatible with both Intel socket 775, 1366 and the entire family of AMD socket 939 to AM2+ processors.

FrostyTech Mk.II Synthetic Thermal Heatsink Test Results
Intel Pentium D / Extreme Edition & Quad Core class heatsinks tested at 150W
Intel Core 2 Duo / Pentium 4 / Celeron class heatsinks tested at 85W

Results based on readings from a 30x30mm copper interface die with 150W and 85W heat loads applied on the LGA775 version of the Mk.II Test Platform. Temperature results listed for each heatsink were calculated by determining the rise over ambient temperatures at time of test. Information on Frostytech's test methodology is available here.

Noise Level (dBA)
*Heatsinks are ranked according to the 150W thermal test results column (rise over ambient temp.). Low temperatures with low noise levels are considered best. For reference heatsinks with variable-speed fans, only the high speed (12V) fan test result is included in the comparison sheet; more detailed results reside in each specific heatsink review.

Intel processors vary in power output between single and multi-core models, so FrostyTech tests heatsinks with two thermal loads that represent the upper limit of each CPU family; 150W and 85W.

With a 150W heat load applied by the Intel LGA775 version of FrostyTech's synthetic thermal test platform, the Titan TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir heatsink maintains an excellent temperature of just 15.5°C over ambient, with 58.6dBA noise.

The TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir heatsink was then tested with a reduced fan speed (800RPM), which resulted in a good 25.5°C rise over ambient temperature and reduction in noise to 31.4 dBA.

On the 85W heat load test, the Titan TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir heatsink managed an 8.8°C rise over ambient at stock fan speed, and 15.5°C over ambient at a reduced fan speed. Not much of change there, so you might as well enjoy the silence if your CPU is rated for a TDP of 85W or lower.

Given that the Titan TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir is nearly identical to a lot of the exposed heatpipe heatsinks on the market now, it's not surprising that this family of coolers all perform very well on both Intel and AMD synthetic test platforms. The only significant difference between the TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir heatsink and some of the others is a faster fan that moves more air (at nearly 59 dBA). The downside to its excellent performance is a noise level from the supplied 120mm PWM fan which is too high to live with full time. Find the happy medium at a slightly lower fan speed and you'll find the Titan TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir a very economical tower heatsink for Intel 775/1366 Core 2 Duo/Core i7 processors and AMD Phenom II chips that can turn on the performance at a moment's notice. Recommended.
