Setup and Test Results ..
Before we come to the results, we want to present you the system which is used to perform with the Triton AIO watercooler.
For our test system we used following configuration:
CPU: Intel Core-i7 2600K @ 4000 MHz with 1,19 Volt
Mainboard: Asus P8P67 Pro Rev 3.1
RAM: 4x 4 GB DDR3 1600 MHz
Video card: MSI GeForce 780ti
SSD: Samsung SSD 840 Pro 256 GB
PSU: Seasonic 760 W Platinum
Case: CM Storm Stryker with 4 fans installed
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
Thermal compound: Cooler Master X1 Extreme Fusion 9,5W/mK.
Room temperature: 20°C
For measurement we used following Tools :
Core Temp 1.0 RC6
This test is also performed in an AC cooled room. We set the temperature to the typical 20°C and powered up the PC system. We have tested the Silent mode and Turbo mode for you. First, the idle temperature is measured with 1000 rpm (lowest setting on the potentiometer) and later on with maximum speed.

The produced noise in quiet mode from the fans and the pump was really low and barely audible with closed case. The fans started in the lowest setting with 996 rpm. In this setting, we made our first idle test in which the Triton cooled the i7 CPU down to 24°C. We then made a stress test with the Prime95 program to generate a 100% utilization on all 4 (8) cores to heat up the CPU. Despite low fan speeds the cooling still reached a good value of 56°C.
But now we want to examine the maximum cooling capacity the Triton can handle. To this end, we increased the number of rpm of the fans at 2610 rpm and performed our measurements again. As usual, the temperature did not change in idle mode. Physically, it is not possible with conventional fans to cool down below room temperature (including losses).
The temperature under Prime95 is however excellent and after a 15-minute stress test we measured only 47°C.
The Triton water cooling achieved a very good value and might even handle a graphic card in addition. What a pity that this is excluded by Raijintek under loss of warranty/guarantee. But there is a downer: At maximum cooling performance, the included high rpm fans are very loud. However, the market offers a variety of quieter and more powerful fans, which can be purchased as a replacement.
