    We look at the Raijintek Orcus 240 AIO cooler. This new cooler from Raijintek is, on the surface, your fairly typical 240mm AIO liquid cooler. However, it brings a couple of fairly neat tricks to the ...

    certainly not a bad cooler, i have the 360 version in my rig, which idles at 27 and peaks at around 58-60 on max load with a delidded 5ghz oc 7700k up to 1.325v. The flow meter is good to see it "working" visually, and the lighting is pretty good when set to "temperature" on my asus board as my theme is green.
    I agree with the fan hub though, its incredibly cheap $2 fan hub, but works its purpose. My only other gripe was the flexibility of movement in the hose, due to the rigidity of the radiator to the pump, till it can be flexed.

    the 240 is £69-£89 core and rgb respectively, while my 360 was £99-119 core and rgb over in uk.

    Update on this cooler, pump failed yesterday so I got around 8 months out of it, replaced with a ryujin 360 from Asus.

    So these fans looked a little familiar to me... And when you said it came with a mandatory hub that uses molex I know why.

    These fans on these are the same generic RGB fans that use a proprietary connector that you find on Ebay or Amazon. I have these same fans in my PC linked to the hub.

    My problem is unless this hub is different, while they aren't loud and they do have some airflow, you can't control them at all. Only the RGB on the fan rings. But considering you have that control over these fans, that's awesome.

    They connect to its own hub for the RGB but have the second pwm wire to connect to normal fan headers too
