Raijintek Unveils MORPHEUS 8057 VGA Air Cooler

Raijintek today unveiled the MORPHEUS 8057, a large graphics card air-cooler. The cooler consists of a gargantuan aluminium fin-stack heatsink that's ventilated by a pair of 120 mm fans (not included). The heatsink features a large mirror-finish copper base, from which six 6 mm thick heat pipes emerge in either direction of the base (Raijintek for some reason counts this as 12 heat pipes), conveying heat to a large fin-stack with 112 aluminium fins that have ceramic coating.

The MORPHEUS 8057 heatsink measures 254 mm x 100 mm x 44 mm (WxDxH), weighing 515 g. Among the secondary heatsinks included are 12 heatsinks of various sizes for memory and VRM components; thermal pads, retention clips, and some thermal paste. Among the graphics cards supported are AMD "Navi 10" based graphics cards (RX 5700 series and RX 5600 series); and NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080/SUPER, RTX 2070/SUPER, and RTX 2060/SUPER. The company didn't reveal pricing.

are the 2 copper chip heatsinks Ax2 the new VRM heatsinks from the older version?

Nice, I love my morpheus -- currently the old version (morpheus II) fits the 2080ti well although you need more sinks for vrms.

And how much will the GPU sag from this thing?

Not much if at all -- I don't notice any difference in sag from stock cooler.

For reference Im using 2 1200 rpm slim kaze fans - gaming at full load is incredibly quiet - temps don't break 64C on a 2080ti in extended gaming sessions.

Why watercool when you can use these. I also have the Morpheus II with 2x A12x25 fans on there. Literally silent under full load.

Not quite sure what the upgrade is. I own the Morpheus II. All black version. Mounted on my GTX 1080 and cooled by two Corsair SP120 fans. Temps rarely exceed 60c.
Great cooler all around. Also the name is a bit weird on the new one: 8057. What exactly is this supposed to represent?

Any chances that this thing will fit on my ASUS ROG Strix 2080Ti? Because that card has a custom design. And one of my fans is damaged, making unbearable noise.

Yeah the asus has this bit of overflow to the mounting holes:



The cooler just mounts to the gpu socket using those inner holes... I think the issue with ASUS is that the extra bits on the corners of the GPU there causes some of the standoffs to interfere / not sit right on water blocks, and looks like it would need some finagling here to make it work right.

I'm 90% sure it would work, but if there was a problem ^ that would be it.

8058! (guesses as to the name!)

Cause this takes up 4 slots so it doesn’t fit in smaller cases (3 with 15mm fans). Other than this - 0 reason to watercool. I love my Morpheus II too.

Like all of the Arctic GPU coolers the glue on memory heat sinks or the big black back heatsink cannot cool the 5700XT memory enough where temperatures can hit over 100 Degrees C at full load.
Looking at the kit for the Morpheus it looks like the 5700XT will have similar issues with memory temperatures I'm afraid!

My advice if you have a cheaper 5700XT with cooling issues and you want air cooling just sell the card and buy a MSI 5700XT Gaming X this card has amazing thermals and performance.

This looks very nice. Cooling wise, it will be interesting to see how this performs vs Arctic Accelero Xtreme iV.

When I saw reviews on the Arctic Accelero Xtreme iV, everyone claims a huge drop in temps. So when I got it, it became clear that the massive temperature drop mostly because the cooler is only tasked to cool the GPU, and not the VRM and memory. The VRM and memory chips are cool via separate heat sink/ ram sinks. The bigger surface area certainly helps, but just isolating the cooling to GPU, and not sharing it with the VRM and memory chips will shave a huge chunk of heat off. After all, the VRM and memory chips runs very hot as well.

Maybe RTX2080 and RX5700

From what I see here the memory heatsinks seem to go on the front, so they will be cooled by air passing through the fins of the radiator. It looks fine to me.

For the Arctic cooling, you still have the possibility to buy the older version, or simply to mount some low profile memory heatsinks on the front.

Your advice is sound, but some people just like to tinker with their hardware :)

so it seems 3 copper vrm coolers with thermal adhesive are included.
its 2,5 slots height and no fans included but with different holding clamps 25mm and 13 mm fans are possible.
should be good for 360watt

What a beauty. Do you think this would bolt into my old 980 classified, or is it just for modern GPUs?

The one you want is this one:

It's been around for quite a while.
It seems the only difference between the different models is just the mounting HW.

I would still go with 25 MM Fans though, better performance and more quiet operation than 15 MM.

Perhaps 2x Noctua NF-A12x25.

I use 3 Noctua Fans myself on a modded Arctic Cooler -- www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/if-noctua-had-made-a-gpu-cooler.259308/

Or if you're like me and have a reference blower 5700XT and don't mind a little work you can strip it down, lap the die contact on the heat sink (mine was horrendously concave), add some liquid metal, some fujipoly ultra extreme 17 W/mk thermal pads, and do the washer mod. That OVERWHELMINGLY dropped the temps on my reference blower card. GPU temp averages 64*C, the max I saw it was 73*C. Junction temps will not go above 80*C max heat soaked load. Memory maxes out at 80*C, Highest VRM temp is 64*C. Compared to the unmodded temps. 90*C average GPU, and 110*C Junction temps, the max thermal throttle limit. Memory was in the low to mid 90's. VRM temps were around the high 70's to mid 80's.

I'd like to see a review on this cooler with the 5700XT. I'm curious to see what the memory and VRM temps are. If they are better than what I have now I'll buy one.

That's suprising. Mine was prefectly flat. Slapped it on my GTX 1080 in 2018. Temps dropped from 93c max to ~65c max. Usually idles 10c above ambient and goes to 50c in games. Tho admittedly 1080 is a cooler running card than 5700XT. Could also be due to fans - i use two Corsair SP120 high static pressure fans.
