Introduction, Specifications, and Pricing


While Raijintek may not be that well known, and since their inception in 2013, this is the first time we have looked at anything from them. From what we can gather, Raijintek describes how they want to be one of the big players in the PC game by delivering high-end products that will eventually lead to user recommendations, ending up with Raijintek as a household name. Sadly, without any previous testing to draw from, or work with this company in the past in any fashion, all we have to go on is what they have put in print. Their mission statement being what it is, we can only hope that Raijintek lives up to the hype with something interesting for us to bring forward in our reviews.

Once again, going by what we see on site, Raijintek has amassed quite the lineup of products thus far. Raijintek offers liquid and air coolers for both CPUs and VGAs, DIY water cooling, cases, fans, and it also appears that PSUs are on their way too. However, when looking through all of their products, there is a familiarity to them all. As many companies have in the past, it appears that Raijintek is more into borrowing ideas from other companies, tweaking them ever so slightly, and delivering them as their own. For those that follow our reviews, you will likely see the similarity in what we are about to show as well.

At this time, we bring forth the Orcus 360 RBW AIO, which has some bold statements that come with it. First off is the notation of it being the "best performing, most user-friendly" liquid cooling system on the market. There is also a point they make which is delivered as "most spotlight catch," which we can only assume means that they are very proud of the Rainbow ADD lighting system they have deployed. With just those two comments, the bar has been set very high. Let's hope that Raijintek can write the checks their butts are trying to cash with these bold statements. As of now, we have our reservations, as we have already seen a very similar system not that long ago, and we already have a good idea of what such a system is capable of.

In the chart we snagged from the Raijintek site, we can see that there is the Orcus 360 RBW that we have today, and there is a second system called the Orcus 360 Core RBW, which ships without fans. As for the model we have in hand, we see initially, information about the size of the box, the gross weight, the low thermal resistance, the 210mL of coolant inside of it, that three fans accompany the kit, the 5mm ID measurement of the tubing, and that the cold plate is copper while aluminum is used for the radiator.

The second section covers what you need to know about the pump, which is not built into the head unit. Dimensionally, the pump is 69.4mm tall, it is 40mm wide, and it is 33mm deep. The pump spins on a ceramic bearing where it can push 86 liters per hour, or 0.03 gallons per minute, with 1.4 meters of head pressure. With speed rated at 4500RPM, the noise is shown to top out at 25 dB(A), and it should run for 50,000 hours. To achieve said speed, 12V must be supplied to the pump, but it only draws 1.8A.

The trio of included fans is described next. This is where we see that are 120mm fans that are 25mm thick, which run on a 12V system but require 6V to start spinning. The fans can rotate in a range of 400 to 1800 RPM and are suspended on a hydraulic bearing. Each fan is capable of producing 35.8 CFM with 1.16 mmH2O of static pressure while topping out at 28 dB(A). Each of the fans has two leads coming from them, where one is a 4-pin PWM connection to power the fans, but there is also a 5V ADD header which connects to an 8-port hub for RGB LED control.

Compatibility is through for all of the mainstream setups. With Intel, Raijintek goes all the way back to LGA775, and includes all sockets since and up to LGA2066. As for AMD, Raijintek goes back to AM2, consists of the FM sockets, and goes on up to AM4. Sadly, this is all of the information we have on the cooler. We feel that another section needs to be added about the radiator, if not for anything other than dimensions so that users are fully aware of chassis compatibility.

When it comes time to shop for the Raijintek Orcus 360 RBW, we found only one of the major e-commerce sites is listing it, so there is not much, as far as competitive pricing, going on to help the consumer. However, at Newegg, we do see that the Orcus 360 RBW is listed at $129.90. At the same time, they show this is a sale price, down from $199.99, which is just absurd. At nearly $130, the price is lower than many of the big name AIO makers with a similar feature set, so that is a good start. All we have left to hope is that Raijintek keeps the ball rolling form this good start, and gives us an AIO that is potentially worth its salt.
