Raijintek Triton Overview

The Raijintek Triton comes in a nice package which includes a handle for better portability. An illustration of the product along with its features and specifications are listed around the box.

Inside the package, we find the Triton radiator inside a plastic wrap and a large foam cushion over the massive CPU block. The two 120mm fans are also nicely packed ready to be installed.

Raijintek Triton Unboxing

In terms of accessories, we have the Raijintek Triton AIO device, two Triton 120mm fans, back plate and bracket for mounting, four plastic mylas, a plastic thermal paste spreader, one thermal grease packet, eight M3x6mm screws, eight M3x30mm screws, four M4x6mm screws, four M4x13mm screws, four metal mounting nuts, one installation guide, and three color coolant bottles in red, yellow, and blue.

The Triton AIO cooling device looks great with the transparent tubes and the large CPU water block. The tube dimensions are 9.5mm for inner diameter and 12.5mm for outer diameter and are attached using standard compressed fittings.

    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.

      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.

    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.
