Construction and design

Construction

If we had to define the type of cooler the Themis is, then we would say it is a single tower cooler. This type of cooler comes with the advantage that manufacturers can realise a huge cooling area. The disadvantage over down-draft coolers is that no air is directed towards the motherboard directly, therefore none of the onboard components receive direct cooling. Raijintek manufactures their Themis from aluminium and copper. Raijintek decided to make use of the direct touch technology, which means, that the heatpipes establish direct contact with the CPUs heatspreader.



Design

We could not find any manufacturing mistakes on our sample, and it seems that it has been well made which means that manufacturing quality is on an reasonably good level. Since Raijintek really optimized this cooler towards a very low price, the fins are very thin and if you strike over them you hear a slight rattling noise. The heatpipes do have slightly different bending radius, which results in additional vortex. Furthermore this cooler comes with a total of 53 fins, which have been connected to one another for additional stiffens.
