Titan TTC-MT3AB Heatsink Review
Titan TTC-MT3AB Heatsink Review
Abstract: The Titan MT3AB certainly gains points for trying something new with this heatsink, but that is about its only strong aspect.

Titan TTC-MT3AB Heatsink From All Angles

The Fans:
The use of twin fans on this heatsink does not necessarily imply better cooling, but does guarantee more noise. The fans are small, and bolted to the heatsink body like two orbs on their side. As they are relatively low RPM, no protection is really necessary. Each fan connects separately to the motherboard fan header, so users should check to see if they have enough power sources available, or use a pass thru cable.

Bare Heatsink:
A 25mm deep area has been cut into the extrusion on each side and this is where the fans sit. Each fan attaches with three small screws and blows air over the fins. The central core is roughly 35mm in diameter, and suspended about the same distance from the bottom of the heatsink.

Side A:
With a central column just over 30mm in thickness there is quite a large mass of aluminum over the processor. The base is 6mm thick, but finned as well for additional heat removal. The twin fans both blow in towards the center of the heatsink, and the benefit of this design is highly debatable.

Side B:
If it were not for the bottom cuts in the heatsink over the processor socket, I think this heatsink would have performed a lot worse than it did. The fans are only about 55mm in diameter, and the orientation is quite unique, but the exhaust air is not directed really towards the processor so some potential cooling is lost to the surroundings.

Heatsink Base:
A brushed finish where the processor meets with the heatsink is not exactly ideal, but at least the base is relatively flat. Some lapping would do wonders for this heatsink, and the use of a good quality thermal compound goes without saying.
