Summary

The Titan Skalli continues in the HDT technology tradition, a design that we’ve seen to be extremely effective for cooling efficiency when used in a tower-style setup, doing a respectable job at keeping a massively overclocked Core i7 under control. Of course, it can’t match the sheer cooling prowess of full tower coolers, but it’s not meant to; the Skalli appears to be geared to a quieter setup. The Skalli can handle a Core i5/i7 at stock speeds and modest overclocks without problem, and can accommodate a smaller mid-tower case setup. It is not designed for top performance or high overclocks, but can easily control a Core i5 750, for example, that isn’t hyperthreaded and will produce less heat than the i7 870.

At $30 USD, the Skalli offers great aesthetics and very easy installation; it is a good all-around cooler for Core i5/i7 systems, runs quiet, and offers good cooling and moderate overclocks at a good price. It doesn’t excel in any one category or criteria, but they it does a very nice job in all of them.

If you’re looking for a new Socket 1156/1366 cooler for your new Core i5/i7 system and don’t expect top overclocks, but want a quiet cooler in a smallform design, take a look at the Titan Skalli, it’s worth checking out.
