Raijintek Triton AIO CPU Water Cooler Review

By Meng Vang

Manufacturer: Raijintek Company Ltd.
Product Name: Triton / Triton Core
Model Number: 0R100018 / 0R100023
UPC: 849939000503 EAN: 4715109920505
Price As Tested: $99.90 (Newegg | Amazon)

Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Raijintek.

The Triton is Raijintek’s first AIO liquid CPU cooler. Like most high-end 240mm liquid cooling units, the Triton includes a copper water block, two powerful 120mm static pressure optimized radiator fans, and solid mounting hardware. In terms of mounting hardware, the Triton supports all modern AMD and Intel sockets, including Intel LGA 2011.

What makes this liquid cooling unit unique is the room for expansion. Users can either use this cooling unit as it is, or expand on it with additional radiators and GPU blocks. The 240mm radiator uses a high fin density design, which results in better cooling potential overall. To top it off, three color coolant dyes are included in the packaging for further customization (only available for Triton / Triton Core editions). Benchmark Reviews is excited to receive a sample of the Raijintek Triton for this review. Let’s take a look at what this AIO liquid cooling unit has to offer against the competition.

    Good review as always and that’s a hell of a good looking cooler when installed. I personally would add another “con”. The cooler is designed in a manner that allows for expansion as well as coolant color customization (including the addition of what looks like simple food coloring), yet doing either voids the warranty? As I said, that’s a bit of a negative to me.

    1. Meng Vang

      I do agree with you. From what I have heard, the sticker is there to prevent novice users from opening and potentially causing damage to the cooler. Raijintek may still honor their warranty even if the user has dyed the coolant, but excessive modifications to the unit can easily void it.

    Couple of things worth addressing that I think users would be interested in….apologize if I missed covered items but perhaps these items could be addressed in more detail.

    1. How is this affected by Asetek patent thing ? If Swiftech for example couldn’t sell a block mounted pump, how does Raijintek get by ?

    2. Given the presence of the Swiftech H220-X, H240-X and H140-X, and the (3) Fractal Kelvin models, is “this liquid cooling unit [really] unique” ? …. I’m guessing you intended “unique for a 2 x 120mm @ $99” ?

    3. Could you comment on the fan grommets ?…at the corners, there appear to be rubber grommets for vibration isolation. Nice addition.

    4. I was expecting more …. besides noise 🙂 …. out of the high fpi rads. One would think given previous comments about the proper SP and high fpi that they would have done better in the testing. Perhaps held back by the pump ? See item 8.

    5. Nice touch on the compression fittings, even Swiftech uses cheaper barbs and hose clamps.

    6. What does it mean “voids the standard warranty” …. does that mean there is a “non-standard” warranty left in place ? How does that compare to the Swiftech / Fractal warrantees ?

    7. The radiator material (Aluminum) is an important piece of information that I didn’t see mentioned. The relevance of mixed metals in the loop and how this is mitigated “as supplied” with installed coolant along with what is necessary of coolant replaced would be of value to readers. This no doubt accounts to the expense of the Fractal / Swiftech units.

    8. The 32 gph (0.53 gpm) pump is better than the 0.32 gpm or so of typical CLCs and the Kelvin but far short of the 1.0 gpm threshold typically sought by custom loop water coolers (and as provided by Swiftech H220-X). How do you think this impacts the test results ? In loop testing w/ 6 temp sensors, I saw Delta T’s of just 0.4C across 5 x 140mm of radiator (inlet temp minus outlet temp) at 0.75 gpm … from 1.05 gpm on up is was pretty much stable at 2.2 to 2.4 Delta T.

      Thank you for addressing these details. The Raijintek Triton is a cheaper alternative if users want a 240mm liquid cooling unit. At just under $100, this gives users a cheaper alternative in getting an expandable AIO liquid cooling unit rather than spending more on something that will offer similar performance and features.

      There are no rubber grommets for vibration isolation, but that’s something I would have liked to see. The fans do get loud at maximum speed and can cause vibration, but I did not notice any during the testing period. I hope in a later version they will include rubber grommets on the fans.

      The radiator is made of aluminum while the block is made of copper. I would not consider this ideal for a water cooling system, but the user can replace the coolant or radiator at any time they choose. This does become a problem for a novice user since they just want to put the cooler into their computer and forget about it.

      Removing the sticker on the fill port does void the standard 2-year warranty. But from what I have heard, Raijintek may still replace the unit even if the sticker has been removed only if the user has not done excessive modifications or physical damage to the unit.

  3. Caring1

    All AIO’s should come with compression fittings like this and the CPU block should be available separately.
    If they were, then the pump could be replaced if it failed, or the hoses or radiator upgraded at any time without the massive cost of a custom loop.
