Asustek launches CPU cooler supports Intel LGA 1366 chipsets
Press release, November 3; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 4 November 2008]

Asustek has launched the new Triton 81- the latest member of the Triton family for highly effective thermal solutions. Capable of supporting quad-core processors as well as the latest Intel Core i7 processor (LGA 1366), it is equipped with a 4-way airflow heatsink design and dual-fan technology for efficient CPU cooling; while a diamond-blue LED provides aesthetic appeal for DIY and overclocking enthusiasts.

The Triton 81 utilizes a 4-way airflow heatsink design to create an unobstructed passage of air circulation; and together with 4 U-shaped copper heatpipes for the most efficient heat transference, delivers cooling performance for a myriad of processor intensive applications and modifications.

Equipped with a diamond-blue LED with dual 90mm fans, the Triton 81 provides an effective channel of airflow to the system, delivering vital thermal protection for stable operations. Despite its powerful performance, the Triton 81 is a relatively silent yet effective performance component – running at a mere 18dBA with its built-in PWM function, which automatically adjusts fan speeds according to the CPU's temperature for an optimal operating environment.
