Raijintek Orcus 360 RGB CPU Liquid Cooler Review

Raijintek Orcus 360 has expanded its Orcus AIO cooler line to include a whale of an offering the Orcus 360 worthy of the family name. As the 360 suggests, it makes use of a large, 360mm-class aluminum radiator as its primary heat exchanger. The Orcus 360 looks similar to most AIO coolers on the market, but a closer look reveals a bit more than might meet your eye at first.

ORCUS, RAIJINTEK’s evolution All-In-One liquid cooling CPU cooler, designed in Germany and made in Taiwan. With several years of experience in liquid cooling products and cooperation with global engineers and manufactures, RAIJINTEK’s RD team developed the concepts of most performing AIO CPU liquid cooler and spent years to design one of most user friendly and spot light product for enthusiasts. ORCUS’s copper water block is a most advanced design of micro channels (0.1mm), extra large contact fin area with multiple channels for the best direct flow of liquid. More than this, ORCUS’s Pump is placed externally which will not incur vibration and stress on M/B and CPU. ORCUS external Pump is designed for high Q-Max, low dBA, and contains a reliable Bearing type. Not only a new design pump and water block are used, ORCUS’s radiator is also using high density design fin radiator. ORCUS has led the trend to designing a “Rotating Blade” with most popular RGB LED lighting inside tank, which able to show water flow and indicates the coolant level. More than rotating blade indicator, ORCUS is also designed to be refillable.

RGB-lighting enthusiasts will be drawn to the Raijintek Orcus 360 for the depth and filling glow provided by the RGB fan rings. In darker settings, the color from the circular LED arrays is vibrant and pronounced.

For the first time liquid-cooler, the flow-meter “blade” in the center of the CPU block provides a welcome indication that coolant is running through the system as it should be, although on a few occasions the blade rotation stalled, then slowly started again. There was nothing physically wrong with the cooler or the pump, as recorded temperatures still showed our CPU being cooled, just as it should be. Most likely, this was just the impeller encountering a bit of turbulence within the block chamber, causing rotation to stall. Still, that might be alarming to those not expecting it.

On the whole, we are keen on the Orcus 360. If you’re in the market for a big-bore CPU cooler for mainstream CPUs, packing more than its fair share of RGB lighting, you’ll want to give this AIO cooler a fair spin.

With great RGB-lighting options, low noise levels, and competitive pricing versus other 360mm AIO coolers, the Orcus 360 is a handsome option for a large liquid cooler.
