Triton 240

Description

Raijintek Triton 240 is an AIO liquid cooler that has, as the name suggests, a 240 mm radiator that can support until four fans in push/pull mode. Waterblock’s contact surface is made up of copper, while the radiator is built in aluminium to improve heat transfer. The tank has two internal LEDs that light up the liquid in the loop. Speakin about the pump, it has a maximum flow of 120 L/h and it designed to keep a very low noise level (about 20 dbA).

Bundle

In Triton 240’s bundle there are two 120 mm and 100 CFM at full speed Raijintek fans, mounting kit that can fit on every AMD socket from AM2 and on every Intel socket from 775 and obviously the user manual. Moreover there are three bottles of  coloring substance (red, blue and green) that can be added to liquid’s loop to personalize the color of the cooler according to the rig’s main colour. Last but not least, in Triton 240’s bundle there’s a 100 ml bottle (it contains a solution at 5% of isopropyl alcohol in water) that can be eventually used to refill the loop.

The fans and the pump have power cables of average lenght, covered by a black overlay of very good quality. The pump can be connected to the motherboard with a 3 pun cable, while the fans can be connected through a 4 pin PWM cable.

Use impressions

Making several tests we found out that the best thing to do is to connect the pump to a motherboard channel that can provide 12 volt, or, directly to a molex of the power supply (better to not use a channel on the motherboard). In this way, the pump will always work at the highest speed. Using a lower supply voltage, the pump will work slower making the plant be considerably less efficient.

In case there aren’t two PWM channels on the motherboard, a splitter cable can be used to connect the two fans to the only channel available because they have an absorption of 0.48 A max each.

If the fans are controlled acting on supply voltage, they will work from a minimum speed of almost 470 rpm to a maximum speed of 2000 rpm, while if they’re controlled using PWM channels, they will work from a minimum speed of aroun 900 rpm to a maximum of 2000 rpm, in agreement with their specs.

Another important thing to say is that during daily use or workloads, also heavy, but that can last in a little amount of time, the CPU temperature will not be affected by fan speed. This is a very good new for silence lovers, that will be able to use the fans at lowest speed for most of the time, and so inaudible, and they will have to rise up the rotation spped only for long workloads or gaming.

Speaking about the mounting kit, it’s very easy to mount without any problems. It’s interesting to see that the waterblock can fit without troubles using mounting brackets of a pot used for extreme overclocking.

We couldn’t make any measurement about the noise, because our lab is not enough isolated, but, being about 50 cm far from the plant, this is enough silent or, anywaym in tolerance limits for sure.

Tests

The rig used for this review is:

CPU: Intel Core I7 6700k @4.7 GHz 1.33 V

RAM: 2x 4 GB 3744 MHz Cl 16

Motherboard: AsRock Z170M OC Formula

We used for our test a common software used to stress CPUs: Prime95

Operative system: Windows 10 x64

Ambient temperature: 20°C

After 20 minutes of Prime95 it comes out that there’s a difference of about 10 celsius degrees between full speed  setting and silent mode setting, both for CPU cores and CPU package.

Cores have an average temperature of  66,5 celsius degrees with silent mode setting and an average temperature of 56,25 celsius degrees using full speed setting and this is pretty good.

Conclusions

As we saw in our test, Raijintek Triton 240 is a good cooler, useful if there’s the aim to buy an AIO withous spending much money. Moreover Raijintek’s AIO can be easily personalizable both for the chance to modify tube lenght and the bottles of colouring that are in bundle with it. Definitely a plus point.

It must be said that the PC is going to be used mainly for office use, the Triton 240 is probably oversized and it would be useful to look for a cheaper solution. It can be very useful for users who make overclock tests on a benchtable and often change the CPU or for long sessions to find the right setting for daily overclock.

Therefore, saw the great personalization possibility,  saw quality/price ratio (it costs around 90 €), saw the how can be easily mounted, we assign to Raijintek Triton 240 a score of 8 out of 10 and our silver award.

Test and impressions use have been performed by the overlocker of our overclock team Scannick.

Special thanks to Raijintek who provided us the sample.
