Raijintek Orcus 240mm AIO Cooler Review


This is a high-performance cooler, so it’s no surprise that it makes easy work of our CPU at stock temperatures. It clocked in at 57c at full load, and just 31c at gaming loads. That’s better than the Noctua NH-D15S, and that’s certainly impressive. Pushing up the clocks to 5 GHz obviously put out a lot more heat. However, the Orcus makes light work of the task, hitting just 65c at full load, making it one of the better coolers we’ve tested. Furthermore, it maintained some very nice idle and gaming temperatures, and that’s likely where your system will be spending most of its time.



The acoustic performance is sublime too, with stock clocks providing the cooler with an easy job. The fans are virtually silent, and that pump is impressively quiet, more so than pretty much everything else we’ve tested. Even once overclocked, it’s by far one of the quietest coolers we’ve ever tested, and that’s saying something.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
