Raijintek looks to one-up the competition with their Orcus 240 all-in-one liquid cooler. How do they plan to do so you ask? By offering full RGB LED functionality with a unique design at an affordable price.

Despite you stating this "The base is nickel-plated copper, which makes for a smooth finish to the touch." The photo tells a different story it's not exactly a mirror finish is it which would have led to a much better result in cooling in other words why nickel plate a shit machined base plate in the first place other than to add extra cost

Those raijintek fans look like a carbon copy of the Aigo Aurora C3/C5 fans....that's just sad, BTW, do the two included fans have ADDRESSABLE/DIGITAL LEDs, or can they only do a single, static color?

Single solid RGB color that can change between manually or automatically with a couple different modes.

No its not perfect mirror finish however to the touch there are no marks or gouges or grooves or machine marks. Also a polished base doesn't make for that big an improvement at least not on a mainstream Intel platform. That said the base is smooth and clean enough that if you place an object directly on it you will see a mirror reflection however due to it not being perfect as you move an object away it becomes blurry to the point of no recognition.

Technically all AIOS are cheap. I mean you can get 240mm versions off of Alibaba / Aliexpress for $35-50 The difference is you pay for shorter shipping time, proper RGB with a hub and a warranty you can actually use if necessary. I wouldn't say its shit since I abused it and put it through a lot of stress testing. Where it works just fine. Shit would be if it sprung a leak or arrived dead which if that happens I do report it as I have had coolers in the past come with junk mounting hardware. The Orcus works it cools decently well and it has LEDS welcome to the new age of CPU cooling.

In my opinion failing to do its job and being cheap are two different things. By saying that it's cheap I don't mean that it would fail. I just dislike gimmicks such as the pump being in the middle of the tubes and useless stuff like that. Problem is companies don't innovate, just adding more gimmicks and leds but nothing much else.

The problem your forgetting is bullshit IP and patent rights. With the pump on the tubing theres no need to pay Asetek or Coolit for patents. This results in a lower price. Gimmicky sure but it does in fact serve a purpose.

As for AIOs there is little innovation to be had right now other than fine tuning. Which means optimizing radiator FPI with the fans chosen to do the job etc. There is also the option of potentially boosting pump performance via small changes but overall performance wont change much. Currently AIOs seem to top out around 280mm in terms off return per $ as 360 mm and 420 mm seldom seem to out perform the 240s let alone 280s to justify cost.

Whomever can find a way to boost pump performance without drastically increasing noise will be next to innovate. Otherwise its status quo as more and more AIOs are made price comes down while profit goes up compared to traditional air coolers.
