Raijintek Orcus 360 AIO Review 

Up Close:  Cold Plate and Pump 

The cold plate assembly for the Orcus is quite a bulky affair, which is odd, considering that the pump isn't actually contained within this assembly.  Instead we have a passive impeller rotor that shows us the rate at which the coolant is being pumped, an impeller, which we should add is served by the same RGB LED trickery that services the fans.

The Contact plate is copper, but is finished with a circumferentialy milled surface.  Although appearing not too look mirror flat, our experience of Circumferential milling assures us that this bit of kit will mate perfectly with the top of the CPU cover.

In most, if not all other AIOs we've seen, the pump is actually contained within the cold plate assembly, and whereas this might make for a more compact look, it does offer certain disadvantages, not least of which is the impact on performance.  With the Orcus, the pump is kept separate to the cold plate and although appearing initially bulbous, we think its position in the loop will see it hidden out of the way.
