Raijintek's Air Cooling Solutions at Computex 2018

Raijintek at Computex 2018 showcased two true tower coolers and a low profile solution that stood smaller besides them. The MYA RBW and the Delos RBW stood tall in their RGB tower greatness, while the Pallas Micro stood true to its name, showcasing compact cooling performance in tight quarters.

The MYA RBW is Raijintek's coup-de-grace in the tower cooler camp, and features a 6x 6 mm heatpipe design with the usual radiator fin design, which feature specially-designed grooves to virtually increase turbulence and heat dissipation area. Raijintek say the MYA RBW can handle up to 250 W TDPs with its dual-fan-supporting design, and should be compatible with all AMD and Intel systems.
We move on to the Delos RBW, which can handle up to three 92 mm fans (one in the middle and two on the outer rims of the cooler). It features the same 6x 6 mm heatpipe design as the MYA RBW, but can handle lower heat output at "just" 200 W - likely a courtesy of lower air volume flowing due to smaller fan design. It features a striking top cover design which may not cater to all tastes (but does anything ever do so, really?).
Raijintek's Pallas Micro is a departure from the tower cooler design, coming in at just 55 mm tall. It doesn't skimp on the heatpipe side of the equation, channeling heat through the same 6 x 6 mm heatpipes as its taller brethren. In a bid to add as little height as possible to the cooler, Raijintek is pairing it with a super slim fan.

Oh the low profile one. 55mm high, finally! Finally something decent that can actually fit into my Node 202 and hopefully not complicated to install. Was waiting for something better than Big shuriken 2 as it's a pain to install.

The Delos RBW is using 92mm fans,not 120 like it says in the text. In the 6th photo, they call it 92 Dual tower Rainbow Air Cooler (the placards for the other 2 have 120 in the name). It's still fat enough to block 2 DIMM slots, but can fit in a tight case better with it's reduced height.

Virtually? So not actually?

just like how the rgb makes it virtually cooler

And how all that plastic shroud makes it actually hotter...

That effect should be marginal, no? Although it would be far better if the shroud went down the sides of the fin stack to keep air from escaping out the sides.

Well for a so-called "coup-de-grace" product, the pictures of the MYA seem to show some really lame, roughshod finishing around the edges of the shroud.... from L-R, check the 2nd, 3rd and 5th photos.... at first I thought maybe it was just bad lighting, but its in all 3 photos....

The one shown at Computex is likely to be a prototype, and likely not representative of the final production molds or finish quality.

Perhaps, but I would think they would want to "put their best foot forward" when intro-ing a new product....not some half-baked preproduction sample with such glaring, obvious flaws...

A valid point. Perhaps their best foot has a few warts and hangnails? You never know, I suppose.

A marginal negative effect is enough to avoid an air cooler. I mean its a bloody heatsink with a fan on it, let's get real here. These things are being made for many decades now. If you need a bigger cooler, it takes valuable space in a build/case choice, so air heatsinks should be as efficient as they can be IMO. There is a reason simple no-nonsense cooling like a Hyper212, NH-D15 and Scythe Mugen rule the jungle.

Long live the 212 :rolleyes:..... Was the first tower cooler I ever used and it worked extremely well for many years, at least until I started o/c'ing my cpus anyways....

More surface area means more heat transfer at the critical metal / air interface. However, increased air turbulence and eddy currents if too closely spaces could limit velocity which could negate the effect.

I hope it doesn't perform like the V8 .. was one of the worse cost / performance ratio's ever. beat the 212 by 1C at 4 times the price ... still beat the Corsair H55 by 3.5C which perty much sums up my views on CLCs.

Scythe basically broke the market with air coolers .... With the $37 Mugen Max and $45 Fuma matching the perfomance of the $90 NH-D-15 and R1 Ultimate while being 11C better than the Hyper 212 Evo for justa few bucks more .... hard to look at anything else unless color choices push ya to Phanteks or ya doing ITX.
