The Raijintek Aidos has been put through all our testing procedures and is still alive, lets have a quick recap on how it held up.

In terms of Thermal Performance I really don’t think you could ask for more from it. It is a budget friendly cooler that managed to keep our 4770k overclocked to 4.5GHz @ 1.3v well under 100c. While this may not seem like the biggest feat in the world, it is something other coolers from Raijintek have failed on in the past.  You get what you pay for and when paying under £15 for a CPU cooler you shouldn’t expect much, as long as it works you should be happy. The Aidos proved it worked and passed all our testing which is outstanding.

Taking the Acoustic performance into consideration and this is again, a field where we should not expect too much. The Aidos comes with a 92mm 2,200RPM and while it may put out a bit more sound than say a 120mm 1,600RPM fan this is to be expected. In order for a 92mm fan to adequately cool a CPU it will need to spin faster to help push more air than larger fans, thus meaning more noise as it is working harder. With that being said I don’t feel the Aidos was too much of an ear sore, even when at full RPM while tucked into a case.

As for the design, well it is what it is and it’s not all bad. The Aidos features a solder-less design and even comes with fan sporting the normal Raijintek red. The four direct contact heatpipes also allow for better cooling performance as to help dissipate the heat from the CPU quicker. Again, when considering the price, which we are about to cover, you can’t expect a whole lot.

On to the price and value of the cooler and this is what is going to help it stand out in an ever so crowded market. Coming in just shy 0f £15 the Aidos offers solid performance over that of a stock cooler and the design is definitely an improvement over stock coolers. The Aidos offers good value for the money and managed to keep an overclocked 4770k to under 100c while testing, which I find impressive for the price.

At the end of the day you get what you pay for and can not expect much more. With the Aidos you are paying for a bit better performance and design over that of a normal stock cooler. While the Aidos may have not been the best cooler on the test bench so far in terms of thermal or acoustic performance it surely wasn’t the worse either. If you are looking for a budget cooler that will get the job done than the Aidos may be the one for you.

I would like to thank Raijintek for sending the Aidos in for review and look forward to seeing more from them in the future.

  1. 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 🙂
