Installing the Triton 81 on a Socket 1366 is quite easy. Attach the LGA 1366 bracket to the heatsink, then just plug it in and push. We used Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste during the tests to determine the Triton 81’s maximum cooling capabilities on the Intel 965 Extreme Edition processor. Room temperature was measured at 25°C at all times.

Conclusion

The Asus Triton 81 heatsink is a great cooling solution. If it’s silence you seek, the Triton 81’s got you covered with its’ low speed mode.

 

Installation should prove to be extremely easy for anyone, thanks to the push-pin clip that doesn’t require much effort to install and uninstall from the motherboard.

 

Temperature readings were quite tense to see. At idle, we saw temps of 53°C and 73°C with stock voltage and low speed fan mode. Bringing the voltage up to 1.32V, we saw temps of 55°C at idle and 95°C under load, which is rather high. Switching to high speed fan mode, we obtain temps of 44°C when idle and 66°C when under load at the stock voltage. Upping the voltage to 1.32V resulted in an idle temperature of 52°C and load temperature of 90°C.

 

Switching to high speed fan mode will cause the fans to operate at 2500RPM, but you will end up with a lot of noise as a result. However, low speed fan mode should offer the best cooling for stock voltages.

 

The Asus Triton 81 can be found selling online for $65 and can be found in the local market for AED 275.
