The Raijintek Forkis Pro RBW is the company's newest waterblock with extensive CPU socket compatibility. It performs well enough to be in the discussion, while besting pretty much everything else on the market in terms of value for money.

I think I like Raijintek, despite never having actually bought any of it. They remind me of Lian-Li 20 years ago - starting off with niche-market aluminium cases that offer something different, and slowly expanding their portfolio into more products that fit cnc-milling. They seem to be no-nonsense, reasonably-priced stuff that's not badly made.

The term you want is "flat sockethead screw" which is this:

Wait, how did the LED's get burned out by the addressable header?

The Raijintek Forkis Pro RBW CPU water block costs , as well as from approved retailers for customers in the USA as of the date of this review.
Please revise this sentence. There's something missing to complete the meaning of what you're trying to convey.

How so? Product A costs amount B from store C as well as from stores D-F.

Product A costs amount B... where is the amount B? The next sentence refers to pricing in another region, so the 52.69 does not apply to the US.

Would be nice to see review of IceMan ICE-CT3
Very solid block for 35$ with large fins area, will fit nicely on LGA1700/1800

As someone about to install an Eisblock XPX aurora, Grr.
How dare my new shiny not be the best!


Damn they used an odd connector: 3 pin ARGB but a 4 pin JST cable
I can see how that can be pushed onto a 4 pin 12V RGB header and go bang.
1669264128739.png


The alphacool's i've got here use a 3 pin JST which is secure like this 4 pin, but you can't slide it onto a 12v header at least :(
If only the standard connector wasnt dogshit with a "3 of 4 pins connector with loose tolerances so it's always falling off" design


This just makes no sense as it's the worst of each connector, it's possible to connect to the wrong connectors and install backwards
Why does the fourth wire even exist?!?

I think you have an adblocker messing up your syndicate links. It looks fine for the rest of us and parses correctly.

IMO the only way ambiguity could be removed would be to change the wording from "costs" to "is available from".

ARGB is a proprietary nightmare that hits the unholy trifecta of no standard physical interfaces, no standard software interfaces, and no standard electrical interfaces. Anyone using ARGB and expecting it to be anything other than a compromise of bad software, shit cables, and potential incompatiblities needs to suffer more ARGB until they learn their lesson :D

You and me both, buddy. ARGB has been around long enough that's it's almost inexcusable how bad the situation still is. The PC DIY/boutique market is where standardisation isn't just nice to have, it's one of the primary reasons for why the PC DIY market still exists. If everything was proprietary the market segment would simply cease to exist, almost overnight...

This is what I see. @Chrispy_ is right. I removed the blocker and the link was available, but it's funny it only removed the US one and not the UK.

Your adblocker hates Americans, clearly ;)
Pro tip: Whitelist TPU because even though advertising revenue is awful, it's better than nothing.

I do, but apparently an update cleared the list.

I've finally got my own systems ARGB under control, but it's required converters, adaptors (some home made) and openRGB

My most reliable lightingsystem has 90% of its lighting controlled by a hardware controller with an IR remote, but of course that can't work on motherboards or RAM

I'm mad at companies taking shortcuts with ARGB because i've got fans with dead lighting from official connectors, and i've been given and sold second hand ones dead from mystery causes.
When official instructions skip things and have setups like this:
1669617357183.png


It's a wonder companies don't get sued for negligence, it's so easy for dumbass ideas like this reviewed waterblock and the image above to blow up themselves, other hardware, or start a fire
Coolermaster 3 pack of fans, manual tells you to connect them in series to each other and forgets to mention the final one at all - but end users are going to see 3 fans, 3 connectors and plug em all in.

Just like giving you a custom 4 wire RGB cable that goes bang if you connect it to a 4 pin header -.-
