Raijintek Morpheus 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.

Some very nice temps there, but i must say that thing is massive.

How many slots does that thing occupy? 4.... 5?

That being said it does deliver a cooling experience which is only beaten by a water cooler.Quote

I guess you could get some low profile fans to lower the overal size. Very impressive temperatures. It shows how much AMD messed up with the stock cooler.Quote

Most people only runa single GPU and maybe at worst a soundcard so there isnt much need. It only rules out dual cards and slim fans wouldnt fix that....Quote

It'd give it a less bulky profile though, no? It might look a bit better with thinner fans. Just my feeling on the matter :P. I just like the shape of the cooler and I think the fans kind of distract from the overall lines.Quote
