Raijintek Morpheus GPU Cooler Review

Introduction and Technical Specification

Raijintek Morpheus Review

Introduction

Although only established in 2013 Raijintek have been quick to release products to market.  Today we're going to be taking a look at the Morpheus GPU cooler.  The cognoscenti amongst you will already know that sometimes a GPUs stock cooler just isn't good enough to provide the amount of cooling required to tame the temps of modern Graphics cards, let alone at noise levels that don't leave your ears bleeding.  In looking at the R9 290, and 290X and seen what third party manufacturers such as MSI, Asus and PowerColor are capable off in providing cards with coolers that can unleash some of the headroom in the chip, other wise hobbled by the wheezy AMD reference coolers, we thought it time we looked at what after market coolers were capable of.  Over the next few weeks we will be looking at various options, but first to get the OC3D treatment is the new Morpheus cooler from Raijintek.  As you'll see when you get into the meat of the review it's certainly a big bugger but as we know, large heat sinks don't always translate into low temps.

Some very nice temps there, but i must say that thing is massive.

How many slots does that thing occupy? 4.... 5?

That being said it does deliver a cooling experience which is only beaten by a water cooler.Quote

The fans alone are a slot though really.......Quote

I guess you could get some low profile fans to lower the overal size. Very impressive temperatures. It shows how much AMD messed up with the stock cooler.Quote

Most people only runa single GPU and maybe at worst a soundcard so there isnt much need. It only rules out dual cards and slim fans wouldnt fix that....Quote

It'd give it a less bulky profile though, no? It might look a bit better with thinner fans. Just my feeling on the matter :P. I just like the shape of the cooler and I think the fans kind of distract from the overall lines.Quote
