When we saw Raijintek's latest closed-loop water cooling unit offering, we were struck; we're not going to go as far as saying that it's the best closed- loop liquid cooler that we've ever seen, but it offers a lot of customization options and carries a relatively low price tag.
The Raijintek Triton AIO CPU cooler is essentially a custom water loop that's pre-filled and sealed. It comes with a 240 mm aluminum radiator and has a dense fin arrangement, as well as a rather interesting CPU block. The remainder of the empty space in the cube is used as a reservoir, which is something we haven't seen before.
Basically, it's a large cube with a pump inside and a cold plate at the base. For tighter cases, this design might present a problem, but in any chassis with enough room to spare it can certainly create quite a cool-looking loop. What's more, the reservoir also has an LED built in to light up the fluid, and the kit comes with three different dyes that can be used to color the liquid red, green, or blue.
The pump in the unit can spin at up to 3000 RPM, at which point it will consume 4 W, make 20 dBA of noise and push up to 120 liters per hour through the loop, and it will do this for about 50,000 hours. The fans on the unit will spin at speeds between 1000 and 2600 RPM, pushing between 39 and 100 CFM and making up to 36.6 dBA of noise.
In Europe, the Raijintek Triton is available (opens in new tab)for €79.99 at CaseKing.de, with no exact word on US availability just yet. We did find a preorder listing at NCIX in Canada for $109.99 CAD, though.
