Intel has already accustomed us to the fact that the platforms for their processors are not the most long-lived. One socket is usually enough for two generations of CPUs, and then you need to buy a new motherboard. The case is no different in the case of the latest family, Intel Alder Lake-S, although there are many new products here – big.LITTLE architecture, support for DDR5 memory and PCI Express 5.0 technology. The mounting standard for cooling systems is also new – processors are longer and at the same time lower. On this occasion, Raijintek decided to refresh its CPU cooler portfolio. As a result, we get a compact tower cooling in the form of the Themis II model.
The suggested price of cooling Raijintek Themis II remains a mystery, but the slightly weaker predecessor cost about PLN 119 in Poland.

The Raijintek Themis II is a CPU cooler with dimensions of 155 x 75 x 127 (height x depth x width) millimeters and a weight of 550 grams, including the fan. We are dealing here with a single aluminum tower, five heat pipes with a diameter of 6 mm each and a 120 mm fan. This is a classic 25 mm thick unit with nine vanes and a hydraulic bearing. It works at a speed of up to 1600 RPM with a capacity of 72 CFM, a pressure of up to 2.16 mmH2O and a declared work culture up to 22 dB (A).

The Raijintek Themis II cooling has been prepared for processors using the Intel LGA 115x, 1200, 1366, 2011 (-3), 2066 and 1700 socket, as well as AMD AM4 and AM3 (+). The manufacturer does not reveal what the maximum TDP is, but claims that their solution will be able to deal with representatives of the Intel Alder Lake-S family from the Core i3 model, through Core i5 and i7, to Core i9. The question is, what will be the temperature and work culture in the latter case? After all, we are talking about a fairly small cooler with only one fan. The suggested price of the Raijintek Themis II remains a secret, but the predecessor cost about PLN 119 in Poland.
