GPU working scorching? An aftermarket air cooler may resolve your issues

Ahead-looking: German {hardware} maker Raijintek has introduced a brand new model of its in style Morpheus aftermarket GPU heatsink that guarantees to maintain all however the RTX 4090 chillier than the inventory cooler can. It additionally appears nice if you happen to benefit from the industrial aesthetic of two uncovered followers strapped to a hulk of black anodized aluminum.

Raijintek slightly unceremoniously introduced the Morpheus 8069 via Igor’s Lab this weekend after leaked images of the cooler discovered their method onto the web late final week. But it surely had already let Igor’s Lab run some exams on an early prototype a couple of months in the past, so it was hardly a shock.

The Morpheus 8069 takes the alternative method to most board accomplice coolers: as an alternative of strapping extra steel to the heatsink and utilizing sooner followers, it depends on considerate engineering and cautious building to realize related or higher outcomes with much less materials.

It weighs in at a mere 515 g (1.1 kilos) and measures as much as 245 x 110 x 44 mm. For comparability, the RTX 3090 FE cooler that it was designed to exchange weighs 2125 g (4.7 kilos) with the PCB and is a good bit longer at 313 x 124 x 52 mm. The GPU has a 320W TGP, and the 8069 can dissipate as much as 360W with two followers, not included.

It appears within the renders just like the cooler has six heatpipes, however Raijintek guarantees that it has 12, every 6 mm in diameter. All of them meet on the GPU die earlier than half of them department out throughout the PCB and half wrap round over the die. Raijintek says that they might’ve been joined collectively into six pipes, however discovered that dividing them into shorter paths had large benefits.

The 8069’s plus-shaped nickel-coated copper base extends to cowl the reminiscence modules of all fashionable GPUs making certain that they are amply cooled. Included within the field are 5 copper heatsinks and three smaller aluminum ones that may be glued onto any line of VRMs. Igor’s Lab discovered that they labored effectively however have been susceptible to falling off if the GPU was put in pointing downwards. The outlet says that the chance is manageable with some information about thermal pads however would not advocate the method to first-time builders.

Igor’s Lab solely briefly examined the prototype 8069 with two 125 x 25 mm case followers mounted and located that it did a very good job maintaining an RTX 3080 cool. After working the Furmark stress check for a number of hours, the GPU stayed at a breezy 55° C in a 24° C room and solely peaked at about 70° C in a hotspot, which is a superb outcome. Learn their report for the total breakdown (in German).

I am personally excited to see how the Morpheus 8069 performs as a passive cooler. It would not appear like it is able to passively cooling something highly effective whereas a recreation is working, however as a result of its design is so open, it ought to have the ability to maintain on a bit longer than different coolers can earlier than spinning up the followers.

It can solely be per week earlier than it hits the market on November 1 and we will discover out extra. Raijintek is ready till then to announce the supply and pricing, however most of their merchandise can be found globally via their companions. Newegg at present lists their older however related Morpheus Vega for $95, so we might think about that the Morpheus 8069 would land within the ballpark of $150-200.
