Introduction

Raijintek are easily my favourite cooling manufacturer of the moment, while they may be relatively new to the market compared to the established few such as Cooler Master, Thermaltake, be quiet! and more, they’ve already make a big impact on the industry. Every single one of their products we’ve reviewed so far has been an award winner, bringing class leading performance, great overall aesthetics and bargain prices; making Raijintek one of the best all round cooling manufacturers on the market.

With all that in mind, I’m expecting a lot from the two coolers we have here today, the Themis Evo Pro and the Tisis. The Themis Evo Pro is targeted at a more budget friendly end of the market since it will only set you back a wallet friendly £27.95, but I wanted to put it against the almost twice as expensive Raijintek Tisis to find out just how much more you get for your money; it is worth investing in one of their high-end coolers if you only need something like the Evo and of course should you want to overclock, will you need to up your budget for a high-end model like the Tisis?

Despite the budget friendly price, the Themis Evo is well equipped; it features four 8mm heat pipes which make direct contact with the CPU, aluminium fins, a good quality 120mm PWM fans and supports all major socket types.

UPDATE: The Tisis used to be called the Nemesys!

The Tisis is obviously a lot higher specification, featuring fives 8mm heat pipes, a nickel copper base, aluminium fins and two good quality 140mm PWM fans.

In the box for the Themis Evo you’ll find a simple install guide, fan clips, AMD and Intel mounting places, a universal motherboard back plate, high-quality screws and fittings, finally a set of rubber fan pegs.

The Tisis comes with an identical mounting kit, albeit with more rubber mounting pegs instead of a set of fan clips.

    Hi Peter
    I realize it’s been a while since these tests were performed. I only now find myself looking to buy a cpu cooler and stumbled upon this great roundup… I have actually already purchased my Tisis (Nemesis) it’s being shipped now. But somehow you got the Tisis to out perform all the other coolers just about… But on a lot of other sites that ran tests it’s somewhere in the middle regarding cooling performance. Obviously different cpu’s etc were used… But the Tisis should have out performed the other coolers there as well regardless shouldn’t it? What could have caused this difference?
    Anyway regarding my own setup, a Raidmax viper gx chassis with psu at the bottom. I have 2x 120mm fans in front for intake, 2 at the top for outlet and with my stock amd cooler I set the back 120mm fan to intake as it makes an 8’C difference on idle… How would you suggest I position the Tisis cooler and back chassis fan to obtain the best cooling performance? Also I will be using the “rice grain” thermal paste application method with the best thermal paste I could get in my country…

    Any recommendations or advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I’m sure others would also be able to benefit from any tips you can give us…

    Kind Regards
