Raijintek ORCUS 240 Liquid CPU Cooler Review

So to summarise, there are a number of features with the Rajintek Orcus 240 that really impressed me . For starters the flow indicator is great; I really can’t fault this addition. My experiences with sealed liquid coolers, on the whole, has been really positive, but really the only part to fail is the pump itself. The inclusion of this indicator makes it really easy to ensure everything is running smoothly without software, as well as making troubleshooting a breeze.

The performance in testing is really the standout for me. It’s great to see a decrease in temps on both our stock and overclocked setups and the Orcus 240 actually outpacing a number of coolers tested. Although sacrificing a little in audible noise, there would of course, be some flexibility for tuning this through software to your preference.

The RGB illumination looks great, and although there are not tons of options with the remote, the flexibility for connecting to both your motherboard for software control, or use with the remote is really pleasing to see. The package itself is really solid and although you may not utilize features like being able to top up the coolant, it’s nice to see a bit more innovation from Raijintek.

The Raijintek ORCUS 240 is currently available from Overclockers UK for £89.99 inc. VAT HERE.

Pros

  • Solid cooling performance.
  • The included flow indicator looks good and functions well.
  • The flexibility of either software RGB control or through the external remote is great to see.

Cons

  • The maintainable element adds another point of failure and may not be for everyone.
  • The installation does require a few stages, and instructions could be a little clearer.

KitGuru says: Its really cool to see Raijintek innovating in the AIO liquid cooling market, and adding features that really make it stand out. Although some features like it being maintainable may be a bit daunting for first time builders, the flow indicator and flexible RGB lighting are definitely great additions. This paired with the better than average performance makes it a great option to look at for a cooler that covers all the bases whilst being a bit more unique.
