Raijintek's Themis CPU cooler is muscling in on the competition in the budget sector. Featuring three 8 mm heatpipes, fifty-four aluminum fins, and a single 120x25 mm fan, it has some nice specs for a traditional tower-style CPU cooler, but does it have what it takes to become the new budget king?

On HS, I was expecting less than evo or just equal , but thinking about it more .
This HS has 3 heatpipes but larger than the 4 evo's .

The way many HS are positioned on the CPU, the heatpipes run parallel with long way of core .
So on a 4 heat pipe the outer 2 are not right over core and have to rely on IHS .

Now with 3 heatpipes, one is center and the other two are over or at edge and I think this could be reason it gets better results .

I would even say beaten! Slightly better, identical price.

Nice.

Its actually usually a bit cheaper at least here in the states the pricing has the Themis with an MSRP thats $3 cheaper than the 212 EVO when its on sale at $34.99 but right now Cooler Masters famed favorite has climbed in price to $39.99 at which point it just gets slaughtered if Raijintek can get the Themis stateside for $30-33

No worries mate. Do not take it too personal. The internet can be a weird place. ;) Looks like a decent cooler.

Only criticism I have is that I can't buy it in the USA through a reputable distributor yet.

Hi! First post here!
I've been looking to get a decent not-so-expensive cooler for my rig. I have a 4690k with stock cooler atm and I just want to change it, even if I plan doing some slight overclocking and this cooler really fits my needs due to my case being the Corsair Spec-02 so I have limited space considering the heatsink height. Should I go for this one or the slightly more expensive Thermalright True Spirit 120M?

Btw, nice to see a Raijintek employee posting here :)

Hi Tony,

Max height in my chassis is 157mm according to Corsair. I've seen people using a CM Hyper 212 Evo (159mm height) in my chassis, so maybe something like that fits too. But I really fancied this Raijintek :)

It will be quiet tight, but it should fit actually... the cooler itself is of 150mm height... just check the height of the CPU including the socket...
