It is clear from our tests that the Raijintek Morpheus is impressive. The basic design of the cooler is relatively simple and is similar to most high end CPU air coolers – consisting of a large stack of aluminium fins arranged around a series of twelve nickel-plated copper heatpipes. It isn’t the most attractive cooler we have ever seen but adding a pair of fans should help it fit aesthetically with most systems.
In our tests, the thermal performance of the cooler was quite good – although this will vary depending on the fans that you choose to accompany it. It couldn’t quite match the excellent performance of Arctic’s Accelero Xtreme IV though. We cannot really comment on the acoustic performance of the cooler as the noise level will vary greatly depending on the fans you select.
The mounting mechanism which Raijintek have employed with this model is effective and refreshingly simple when compared to the one used on Arctic’s latest models. The top down fan positions also provide the PCB components with adequate airflow to keep them cool.
At a price of £45 from Overclockers, we feel that the Raijintek Morpheus offers good value for money. When we factor in the price of a decent pair of fans such as the Corsair SP120 series, it is similar in price to the Arctic Accelero Xtreme IV and gives you the flexibility to choose the correct fans for your setup.
