I wonder about the intelligence of the Old Gods, whether behind the crazed ramblings that infect the mind of anyone who is near them belies an actual purpose or whether they're straight up Chaos elementals so to speak, they just don't know anything else other than madness and turmoil.

I think you might be on to something with the "chaos elemental" idea. The Old Gods' claim to fame is the Curse of Flesh which made the sentient inhabitants of Azeroth what they are today...soft squishy flesh and blood beings. Ever since "fleshies" became the dominant life forms of Azeroth, war and turmoil became synonymous with their very existence. In short, they brought chaos to the ordered world of post-Titan Azeroth. By constantly warring with each other and the subsequent collateral damage done to the planet because of it the Alliance and the Horde are, in small part, helping to accomplish what the Old Gods cannot do from the confines of their prisons. The Twilight's Hammer members are just more active in helping to spread the chaos.
It's also possible that they're so far beyond most beings' ways of thinking that the only way to deal with the touch of an Old God's mind is madness.

Or more specificly - when you try to understand, you go mad from it, either it's way beyond what your mind can process or the truth itself drives you insane.The mortals mind has many limitations compared to that of an Old God. It's like a small machine into which you throw the wrong gears or way too much oil and it fizzles and explodes or brakes appart.I like the idea of "the manifests of Chaos". It goes directly againts the Titans being the embodiment of order. But I thought that they were more like the embodiment of pure darkness/evil, but those two don't exclude each other. I'd really like to find out some day how do they interact with the Naaru or the Light. We know how does Legion-Titans, Titans-Gods, Legion-Naaru interact , but the Naaro-Titans/Old Gods relation has never been clearified.
