Taiwanese manufacturer Raijintek Co., LTD, famous for PC cases like the PAEAN, Metis, Aeneas and the very Thetis that we reviewed some time ago, are also very active in the cooling products segment, being their most famous product the now discontinued Triton AIO. After the success they had ad Computex 2017, where they announced the new line of watercooling products, today we received some final renderings and images of the new series of full cover waterblocks for NVIDIA graphic cards, and specifically for the 1080 series.
Most certainly many can recognize the design, but do not be fooled: these are not OEM products, but proper Raijintek developed products, a representative of Raijintek told us. The waterblocks have an acrylic top, with logo and brand name machined on it, and present a stainless steel plate on top of it to cover the gap between the main cooling area, dedicated to the GPU chip, and the mosfet area. The stainless steel plate allows this way a thinner acrylic plate to be used, making the whole waterblock lighter than competitors’. The gap in the acrylic, which gives space to the condensers, is clearly visible on the picture below:
The base plate is nickel plated copper, and the area right on top of the GPU chip is finely CNC-milled to create the necessary elevations to touch components to be cooled, like the ram chipos and mosfets. Assembly on the VGA is via screws, that will be provided with the waterblock.
These waterblocks follow the reference design, so if you own a VGA with a non-reference design you should be better off with an aftermarket air cooler, or a GPU-only cooler and cool down ram chips and mosftes with dedicated heatsinks.
We do not have still details about availability or price, but the latter should be, as usual from Raijintek, way under what competitors ask for similar solutions. We are eager to put our hands on one of these beauties, and will post a full review as soon as we get one.
