I've covered over 20 brands in the DIY PC watercooling space thus far, and well over 50 radiators in that time. In fact, my very first watercooling product review here was of a radiator from Hardware Labs
well over five years ago. Somehow the Raijintek brand has never had an entry despite it expanding from strength to strength and getting a global reseller network on board, too. It's time to change that with the first of several Raijintek product reviews coming up courtesy the brand having arranged a collection of parts for TechPowerUp!
I still am in the middle of a big radiator test schedule, so having Raijintek's debut in the watercooling category begin with its most popular radiator makes sense. Titled the Calore Elite CA series, I have the CA360 representative. This is a 27 mm thick radiator to accompany the 65 mm thick Calore C360D
, and there are even a couple of Raijintek radiators with RGB LEDs
. The company aims for the Calore Elite CA360—henceforth simply referred to as the Raijintek CA360 for convenience—to offer good value for money as it participates in an extremely competitive market segment that has not really had anything noteworthy debuting in a while. Today, we find out whether Raijintek can turn the tide, and we begin this review with a look at the product specifications in the table below.
