The Titan TTC-K8ATB/825/SC is a ultra-budget AMD Athlon64 K8 heatsink. It is most likely to find its way into unknowing PCs by way of thrifty stores, and really doesn't offer much to get excited about. The Titan TTC-K8ATB/825/SC comes with a fan speed controller used to wrangle in the 63 dBA, 3800RPM fan.
The fan speed controller is not mandatory, which is a good thing considering how the Titan TTC-K8ATB/825/SC performs thermally even with its fan spinning at full tilt.
A flashy and "ultra stylish" chrome plated plastic fan grill tops things off on the Titan TTC-K8ATB/825/SC heatsink, which... deserves no comment.
Installation is made inconvenient by a completely screw-based retention clip. So long as the rear plate of the motherboards' K8 heatsink retention frame is held in place by the motherboard tray though, it's not problematic.
The standalone PCI bracket fan speed controller is something Titan includes with just about every heatsink. When used with the Titan TTC-K8ATB/825/SC, it adjusts the fan speed from between 1800-3800 RPM. Since the controller has jacks for a standard 3-pin fan connector any fan can be used with it.
FrostyTech's Test Methodology is outlined in detail here if you would like to know about the parameters under which this heatsink will be evaluated. Now let's take a closer look at the Titan TTC-K8ATB/825/SC heatsink; its acoustic characteristics and thermal test results!
