Titan Twin Turbo TTC-SCS88TZ VGA cooler

Titan Twin Turbo TTC-SCS88TZ VGA cooler

System Configuration:

• CPU: Core 2 Duo E6750
• Motherboard: Gigabyte P35-DS3
• RAM: Teamgroup Value DDR2-677
• HDD: Seagate 7200.9 80GB
• VGA: eVGA 7900GS
• PSU: Enermax Infinity Crossfire 720W

For testing, we decided to test the Titan Twin Turbo by using the included silicone grease. We placed a layer on the GPU and left the system running 3D benchmark loops in order for the thermal paste to stabilize for about 6 hours. We tested the cooler by allowing the fans to work at maximum speed only, as the cooler offers no kind of fan speed control. GPU load was achieved by running loops of 3DMark05 for 30 minutes. The idle temperature measurements were noted after the system was resting at the windows desktop for 20 minutes. Ambient temperature is maintained (as accurately as possible) at 19 degrees Celsius at the time of the test.

The base of the Twin Turbo is made out of copper and while it is not machined down to a perfect mirror finish, it is smooth. The base of the cooler is very small, as it must not be obstructed by components around the GPU core during installation. There are four thick heatpipes which transfer the heat from the small base to the aluminum fins and while there are many of these fins they are not very thick. Despite that, the Twin Turbo will still block the expansion slot underneath the VGA card.

Performance Testing

The Titan Twin Turbo has a clear performance advantage over the eVGA stock cooler, improving the working temperatures of the GPU. We expect the performance difference to be even more obvious with more power hungry GPU cores, but as the Twin Turbo cannot be mounted on top-end VGA cards the most powerful core you can mount it on is most probably that of an Nvidia 7950GT. The Twin Turbo is not entirely silent and it lacks any kind of fan control, but it is barely audible. Most modern motherboards offer fan speed control for all of the fan headers and not only for the CPU fan header, so the speed of the fans can be controlled through your motherboard’s BIOS, if it supports it.
