Titan Cool-Idol

3. Installation

In order to install the Titan Cool Idol CPU cooler you will have to remove your motherboard from the PC case first. While this may take some extra time, it should not be considered as a drawback. The included backplates are compatible with both Intel and AMD platforms.

First, you have to o apply the thermal compound on the CPU's top surface. Then you have to place the cooler on a stable surface (desk) and gently place the motherboard above it and carefully move to the proper position, ready to accept the backplate and the included screws that will secure the whole structure.

The Titan Cool-idol can be installed in a vertical or horizontal position, although installing it the way we did (photo below) would save you some space inside your PC case.

Strangely enough, the cooler leans from one side by design..

As you can see in the picture below, the massive cooler covers a large area on your motherboard once it is installed, almost reaching the memory banks. Titan says that this specific design expands the cooling area of the device allowing the air flow to reach the memory modules.

Despite its big size, we didn't have any problems fitting it inside our Thermaltake Soprano PC case.
