| Titan TTC-MS2AB Perspectives|
original Thermaltake heatsinks, the TTC-MS2AB uses a frameless fan mounted
in a recess cut from within
the heatsink extrusion. The fan is
~60mm in diameter and 25mm in height. The 7-bladed fan connects directly
to a motherboard fan header for power and includes and RPM sensor
for monitoring purposes by the system. Note the spot for a flat headed
screw driver to fit in the clip.
the fan removed from the heatsink one problem is immediately evident.
Looking closely at the width of the
fins close to the center 35mm dia. solid section we notice that the
machining process has distorted the fins. The distortion has cut down on the spacing between
the fins in such a way that air from the fan may
not be able to move freely over the rest of the heatsinks fins.
It almost looks like a Golden Orb from the side, but for
the misplaced clip. The clip proved very stiff to engage and near impossible to
do by hand. A screw drive is highly recommended. Each of the fins range in height from
17mm to 25mm at the corners. The fins are all ~1mm thick at spaced 3mm
at the tips.
The TTC-MS2AB looks just
about the same from the side as it does from the top.
The wires for
the fan come out from between the fins.
really difficult to understand why anyone would want to finish a base
as roughly as this. In any case, the base of the Titan is fairly
flat, but not very smooth. The surface looks as though
it was prepared for a thermal pad of some sort, rather an thermal
paste (which is included with the heatsink!)
. Again, note the slits cut
from the base plate to aid airflow and
