Thermal Results

Near five-degrees out of the lead isn't too bad for the Orcus 360 RBW at 56.25-degrees. Of course, when we take a look at its close competition, there are a few AIOs with better results as well as quite a few $50 air coolers.

Once we leave the realm of stock settings, the Orcus falls down the list, eight degrees out of the lead. 74-degrees will keep your processor well away from the throttle point, but again, with many more affordable solutions placing higher in this chart, it is hard to spin these results in such a way to give Raijintek praise for what they have shown.

Even as we set the fans to their best attempt at cooling with 12V going through them, the results are not that great. We see that with only a degree less, the PWN curve is set well, there isn't more to gain from the Orcus 360 RBW.

 

 

Noise Level Results

While at idle, the fans will drop down to 400 RPM, while running the testing, we saw the fans spool up to 750 RPM to deliver the thermal results in the first thermal chart. The fans only deliver 28 dB into the room at this time, and while down on the SPL chart, it is still a respectable result.

Still looking to the PWM circuit to do the job, when we overclocked the system and ran the test, we saw fans at 1225 RPM. The noise moves into the audible range where they can be potentially heard through a chassis at 34 dB at this time. Still not a horrible showing.

Considering the speed of the fans were at 2100 RPM for this test, and the fact that the SPL jumps to a mind-numbing 56 dB, we see no need to go here for one degree in efficiency. The Orcus falls right in the middle for this round, but there are more silent offerings in AIO cooling.
