ASUS Triton 88 CPU cooler review
Since the launch of Intel's enthusiast-oriented Core i7 CPUs, we've seen a few CPU cooling solutions attempt to get to grips with the processing giant's latest monster, and although some of these attempts offered up some notably better offerings that Intel's own stock cooler in terms of both temperature and noise levels, we're yet to have a cooler really blow us away (with every pun intended) with its performance when coupled with a Nehalem system.
Enter ASUS, not typically a first choice when it comes to CPU coolers but a company who have offered a few fairly compelling solutions in the past. Their latest offering comes under the firm's "Triton" branding, offering Socket LGA 1366 compatibility as well as the more typical LGA 775 and Socket AM2 support and with an eye to providing some seriously hefty cooling at the high-end of the CPU cooling market. So, can the Triton 88 succeed where other parts have either struggled somewhat or failed outright? Let's see how this cooler gets to grips with our Intel Core i7 940 CPU.
