Raijintek Morpheus GPU Cooler Review

A Closer Look
The cooler features an all-over nickel plating finish that gives it a shiny and premium quality look. The fins are thick and durable, unlike a lot of coolers which often feature thin and flexible fins; these are rather strong and harder to bend.
On the underside you can see each of the twelve heat pipes, 6 leave the GPU block from the left, moving to the front fin array, the other six leave from the right to the rear fin array. The cooler is a single piece unit, but there is some clear separation between the two sections, noticeable from the gap in the fins to the left of the GPU block.
The block is quite thick, easily taking up two PCI slots in height on its own, add that to your card and you’re already pushing into triple slot territory before you’ve installed any fans! This clearly isn’t going to be suitable for SLI/Crossfire configurations.
The fins feature small cuts with raised lips, this will help move the airflow around their surface and through the other fins, allowing heat to be drawn away from the cooler with greater efficiency.
The Morpheus is fairly straight forward in terms of design, but the finish is faultless and I have high hopes for its performance given the overall size of the block.
