Raijintek is upping their game by entering the all-in-one liquid CPU cooler market with the Triton. Not content with off-the-shelf, self-contained units, they have instead entered the market swinging with an expandable system. Customizable and to be had for a sweet price, the competition might be in for a world of hurt.

I would like to point out this cooler's mounting system has compatibility problems with motherboards that have solid capacitors very near CPU socket such as Asus Z97-A. Therefore, this cooler does not completely follow Intel keep out zone.

This obviously is not a problem with the motherboard used in this review with very low profile tantalum caps near CPU socket. But could cause problems for others out there.

My review sample was leaking from the reservoir cap. Perhaps it is shipping damage. But it is also good reminder to properly leak test these even if they are AIO coolers or face potential damage to components due to leaks.

I have to agree this kit has potential in terms of performance, but as it is I simply can't recommend it over the more solid brand names with its current level of build quality and finish. Better luck next time, I hope they improve these things over time. Competition is always good!

Solid review as always. :)

In this test, it bothers me that you find it difficult to show the inside of the cooling element block that shows the execution of grooves, slots and their layout. it may also be bonded to the chassis. and if we have the element I will say that the execution efficiency of the pump sucks! It could have been much better. Considering that I do not know the layout of slots, grooves do not know, is even properly installed, because the elongated placed processor under the hood where you can obtain at least 5 degrees if it is removed.
The metal cover on the tank is unnecessary and would be a lot nicer looking through on this design. Yes, a lot of little things to fix found here. The idea is great but the implementation is very lame. Not to mention the aluminum copper attitude.

There is one thing clearly missing, as demonstrated by the Raijintek Tritons leaf blowers:

Pls give us an aditional chart with reference fans!!!

Yes its more work, but its makes the coolers and their potential really comparable.

Yea no, all coolers are tested as they are provided. I will not and never will provide fans and do reference tests, As what users like as reference fans differs considerably. Use Noctua fans? people bitch cause they are expensive, Use Cheap fans? bitch cause they are not good fans. Coolers will be tested as they are delivered at retail unless stated specifically in the review. Because that is how 99% of users will use said cooler.

Bogami if I better understood what you were saying I would attempt to elaborate my findings but its hard to understand you man.:confused:

Good review, thanks.
This is another nail in AIO's coffin (to me). High end air cooling all the way.
I hope you'll find the time to test the Thermalright Archon IB-E X2 which has an offset design to clear the 1st expansion slot (plus RAM compatibility).

I feel privileged to be one of 1% who bought AIO cooler(h105), upgraded fans to noctua nh-f12, and want to find out how this cooler with larger pump would fare compare to what I have. Bow before me you peasants.
Why review aftermarket coolers anyway? 99% of users use stock cooler, no?

I even use 2 fans on my AIO despite the fact that thing only came with one out of the factory!

Strange coincidence that people who read these kind of reviews, tend to tinker with their hardware and want to know its limits.

If no one would care for fans or exchange them, Noctua would probably be gone by now. It doesnt so much matter what brand/model these refernce fans are, as long as they deliver a decent amount of static pressure and arnt loud like the ones on the Triton.

If you want reference fan tests to compare efficiency other sites do offer that I however will not be adding that data to reviews. Due to the nature of coolers, I will not be finding and keeping 140 x 38 mm, 140 x 15 mm 140, x 25 mm, 120 x 25mm etc fans. There are also coolers that you cannot change the fans on at all such as many Zalman models unless you modify the unit.

If you don't like how I handle reviews thats fine. But I wont be doing reference fan testing in reviews. I already currently spend 6 hours benchmarking the coolers not counting misc stuff necessary for the reviews. Adding another set of fans cranks that time spent up to 12 hours just testing. I have a regular job, reviewing hardware is just a hobby.

If you would like to to pay for my time spent testing then sure Ill add some reference fans to every review. Considering thats unlikely and I just do this for fun. The answer is an emphatic no to reference fans.

I don't think many people realize how much work goes in to making these reviews and all the testing & required auxiliary stuff. Almost everyone needs to have a full time regular job because, lets face it, this job rarely pays well enough to do full time. It is very much an enthusiastic side hobby taken to the next level.

I experimented by doing temperature / noise graphs every 100 RPM step for all the 7 coolers in my article. Took me literally days to make it happen. Payoff? Practically did it for free but hey I wanted to give people what they asked for. But even that wasn't enough, afterwards they ask you to do reference fan tests! I know exactly how you feel. People are never going to have enough. All you can do is do best you possible can with allocated funds and time and move to the next thing. :)

Nice review, the block does look big compared to a lot of AIO's.
I found a couple more pictures that may be of use including a clearer picture of the base.

The base is 2 1/4 inches x 2 1/4 inches.

To put that into perspective the base is roughly 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 on the Fractal Design Kelvin S24
The Corsair H105 is 2 1/8 inches across with a circular base.

I had a rough idea how long it takes to test it, but thanks for clearing it up again. That aside you still seem to find time to measure things like Idle temps.

Its your review and my initial suggestion, was just a suggestion.

because Idle / Load temps are mandatory. I actually tried to DROP Idle temp testing as I find it worthless but the community here cried foul and thus it remains. Thus I waste a bunch of time verifying idle temps.

suggestions are welcome but few take into account the time necessary.

Doing photo work takes 2-3 hours to get them properly done / balanced/ resized etc. Followed by excel spread sheet work to compare data, then compile data and out put graphs takes another hour or 2. Then 2-3 hours to write up the review edit check over data etc.

Each cooler review runs a total 11 to 14 hours. To make sure everything is as it should be. Thats if something doesn't go wrong mind you. It is what it is.

Well if a cooler fails load testing thats one thing but lets face it ive never seen a cooler fail an idle test... well except in the case of user error lol like missing peg not pushed in... plastic still on the bottom etc

I used this AIO in my new build. Had only built 1 water cooler before and it was a H60. Had my concerns, but good deal, great looks, won out. Installed Corsair 240 red fans before installing. Inspected item well, found no damage but packaging could be ALOT BETTER. No leaks found when tested outside my In-Win GRone case, installation was pretty simple which was good because included instructions sucked. Works well, looks nice, Corsair fans are quite. Not sure if i would use it again, but turned out ok, all things considered

Didn't I see someone here manage to crack the Triton's reservoir by tightening the block too much ... something to be wary of.

How comes that on the summary page you have several coolers in the list that you did not give us temperatures and noise? Like: NZXT Respire T40, Titan Dragonfly 4, Silentium Fera 2, Raijintek Themis, Scythe Mugen 4 etc.?

Coolers will be tested as they are delivered at retail unless stated specifically in the review.

What about testing all fans on one fixed (tower? so there is no pump variable)) cooler to get fan hierarchy? So when you review another cooler with it's default fan, we can check the fan hierarchy table and see if and how much better we could do with something else... (provided, that you have added this coolers default cooler to the list also). I would very much like to see fan reviews with cooling efficiency and noise generation put against eachother... as I don't trust the numbers manufacturers put to their products specification pages.

A fans performance will differ to much depending on heatsink design fin spacing fin thickness etc. Angled nature of the fins how much turbulence is created. This is why I dont mess with the fans. All that comes into affect on every heatsink so a fan that does great in one application may tank in another.

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
I would like to point out this cooler's mounting system has compatibility problems with motherboards that have solid capacitors very near CPU socket such as Asus Z97-A. Therefore, this cooler does not completely follow Intel keep out zone.

are you sure of that currently experimented it?

edit: after some research, i didn't found any user with a compatibility issue, but i see what you mean. not currently the retention plate but the block can be a problem, tho i still want to see a result of a live test... i need to buy a Z97-A :roll:

(positive point ... you made me glad to have bought a MVIIR and not a Z97-A ;) )


edit: now i have a Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 5: fully compatible again.
