Raijintek Morpheus GPU Cooler Review
Performance and Testing.
The test set up consisted of the following
Intel i7 3960X 4.0GHz @ 1.25v Gigabyte X79 UD3 Corsair Vengeance LP Memory Corsair HX850 V2 Corsair Force GT 60GB Coolermaster Storm Trooper.
Our aim here is not to review the performance of the R9 290 card, but to examine the affects that aftermarket cooling has on the temps. To this end we've compared the figures received to those of the stock cooler and the MSI R9 290 Gaming.
The results pretty much speak for themselves. After a full 30 mins of Unigine Valley the Morpheus is able to keep the usually hot running R9 290 down to a frosty 64 degrees, a full 30 degrees cooler than the Stock cooler. It's also able to better the temps of the Twin Frozr equipped MSI Gaming board that we looked at a little while back, further proof if it is needed that the R9 290 represents great value now that there's a way to reduce those temps.
