    Does anyone own the Titan Majesty equivalent of the Super ORB?

    How does it perform? At least the stats say it should be a lot better than the Super ORB...

    I think he means golden orb rather than super orb. I also think that Titan Majesty's uses inferior metal so that performance is hindered.. I think I read that somehwere...

    It said "requires Windows 95 or better," so I installed Linux.

    This is the Titan model:

    it's just a little smaller than the Super ORB but otherwise very similar (two fans surrounded by fins, thick base), but it's heat resistance is much lower, which means that it's the ORB which uses the inferior metal. I'm wondering if anyone has any experiences with this beast of a HSF.

    Just for comaprison, the Titan has a thermal resistance of 0.34 C/W while the SuperORB has a resistance of 0.66 C/W which is twice the resistance of the Titan model.

    This HSF could be very efficient indeed, especially since the SORB is already a very good cooler.

    Anybody?

    Hmm from the looks of it it looks like it would transfer more heat if the fins ran up and down from the CPU (like the Super Orb), rather than sideways like the Titan model. They may be exposed more to the air, but they don't seem to be as much in contact with the CPU.

    Read review that it had very poor performance.

    Damn! I had high hopes for that thing, especially since the specs are much better than for the ORB.

    Now where can I get a Super ORB all the way to Finland without paying twice the price for shipping?

    Maybe some swedes here know a good e-store?

    THat's one of the Titans too.

    They sure look good, and have great specs too, but if that review says they suck for cooling it's not much use.

    I mean I'm sure they're good coolers, but not comparable to the Alpha or something.

    Do you have a link for the review? I couldn't find any...

    WHOA! Go to the Titan site at www.titan-cd.com and check out their new disclaimer/statement!
