Raijintek was established in 2013 and has the aim of designing high-end products for lifestyle and day-to-day use of computers and IT. They offer a wide range of CPU coolers and since their start they have broadened their horizon and now offer gaming gear such as PSU’s and Cases. Some of their lifestyle products include accessories for smartphones and tablet PC’s.
Today I am taking a look at one of their CPU coolers in the way of the Aidos. The Aidos is a budget CPU cooler featuring a 92mm fan and comes in two flavours, one with the normal red Raijintek themed fan, or you can get it with a black fan. The Aidos is designed to be a small upgrade for those not wanting to use stock coolers and is compatible with most AMD and Intel sockets. It has a solder-less fin assembly and direct contact heatpipes.
Before we start the review let’s have a quick look at what Raijintek have to say about the Aidos:

Why is every single review for this cooler different? I have now come across 5 different reviews with 4 of them for certain using this same exact i7 4770k and 2 show pretty poos numbers with this being one of the two and the other two using the i7 and the third using a cpu I can’t think of atm showing performance that beats the hyper 212 evo in just about every area except a 1 degree loss with an overclock idle temp. I also seem to get conflicting opinions from people who have purchased this cooler pretty much matching the reviews. It either shows there is some variance in installation or the build quality of the cooler. Unfortunately I’m waiting for one in the mail and can’t even pawn it off to my son since he his cpu runs hotter then the skylake I planned to use it with. I wasn’t hoping for much but considering the low tdp of skylake expected to at least be able to safely overclock my i5 6400 to 4ghz but all these reviews makes me wonder.
Unfortunately without access to the same cooler we can’t re-run the tests to find out if it was a seating/fitting issue. I don’t think we would be able to find out if it’s a random problem across manufacturing without access to a large number of coolers and ran the tests again in lab conditions… something that simply isn’t possible for us to do.
TL:DR – Best of luck, hope you get a good one 🙂
