    that is not easier than water cooling. Love you guys!

  • TheStigma

    Really wish that one of the AIB partners would just sell cards without the cooler as an option. It would obviously be very easy for them to do, and the cost saving should actually go a decent way towards offsetting the cost for a reasonable custom cooling solution. At least if you are aiming to mount a reasonable secondhand CPU cooler and epoxy on some cheap mass-produced heatsinks for the various other components. I really like that approach. Less so for the handful of extra percentage points of performance you can squeeze out - and more for the silence you can get in addition to it. It could be a bit problematic in terms of handling warranties reasonably but one can dream...

    4:13 That's TERRIBLE advice (i should know, i watched that video and the conclusion) Just use ArcticSilver folks. I did that for my 1080ti RAM chips and can OC them to 5880Mhz (+372) and play 4k downscaled to 1080p all day, every day. Use a toothpick to spread a VERY thin layer over the chips (less than two sesame seeds worth) Also, thanks to the nickel plating, these Raijintek coolers work AMAZING with liquid metal.

    Cheaper solution: Put the PC itself in another room, drill a small hole in the wall for cables to your monitor(s), keyboard and mouse, etc. Fill the remaining space in the hole with insulation (or use an old T-shirt or a sock). Now you can crank up your fan speed to max to keep the temps down without having to be bothered by the noise.

  • FilZinGER

    Did this years ago with my GTX 285 an a ZALMAN custom cooler. Had no problems with the small heatsinks. They're still on the right place, never fall off.

  • notthere83

    Um... very few things can beat Noctua. I did this mod but with a decent solution that received great reviews from thousands of people (I think it was an Arctic Accelero) a number of years ago and in combination with installing an AIO cooler on my 2600K, it extended the life of that system significantly. Also modded my I think it was a 7800 GT (yeah, some 15 years ago) with a solution that looked almost identical and was I think Arctic Accelero too and back then, the cooler was able to dissipate so much heat that I didn't even need to put fans on. Great aftermarket coolers (+ Noctua) FTW!

    Morpheus II on my 1070 was the best upgrade for my computer ever. And I had an EVGA cooler on it. Maxes at 50°C and noise is uncomparable.

  • JimR

    Put the tape on the sinks FIRST, then just press them in place. Much easier working room that way.

  • InvaderZim1985

    had the same problem with the morpheus 2. i used thermalglue, because the system would crash due to fallen of heatsinks. now my 1080ti works fine :). oh and i got some other heatsinks that covered the chips better.

At my Rams the Thermal Pads going wunderfull and no is faling down today. Its a problematik fom Card to Card. At one the pads going good and a other he falling down. The Temps are Wunderfull and the Card is Silent. I Love the Morpheus II GPU Cooler. In standard i have 1936Mhz and 70-80 Grad Celsius

    This is why arctic has you put thermal adhesive on everything but some small little heatsinks on their accellero coolers.

  • firebirdude2

    So no issues after all the memory heatsinks had fallen off?!

  • Kepe

    12 heatpipes? I count 6, which run through the GPU coldplate. Raijintek's marketing BS does state 12, but did anyone at LTT actually bother counting them? This is exactly why I don't come to LTT when I want actual information. LTT's videos are just paid promo fluff pieces with nearly zero proper information.

    • Kepe

      The fact that Linus always has someone instructing him on what to do tells a lot...

    If you for whatever reason have an old-school blower card, you basically MUST slap a Morpheus on it. Not only my Vega64 became completely silent - and it used to sound like a vacuum before - I got a 30% performance increase, no kidding. I was blown away

  • knightwolf200612

    I have the Morpheus II for a year now. It has a lot of heatsinks and thermal tape with it. Included are about 10 square memory heatsinks, 5 low and 5 high profile. Every memory chip has it's own little heatsink. I've been using it on my Asus Radeon R9-390 for a year now, with 2 BeQueit 140mm fans on it. The only thing that didn't work was the VRM heatsink because it didn't fit on my grapgics card, so I had to create a VRM hearsink myself from a random heatsink. Every sink that uses the thermal tape still sits strong on my card! The temperature dropped around 15 degrees celcius compared to the stock Asus 3-fan mega cooler! After many hours of playing GTA Online on 2560x1600 resolution it's still max 75 degrees celcius. And the 140mm fans are really quiet even on max power!

  • Ivan Vasiliyvich

    I got a nzxt kraken bracket and a cheap evga 140mm AIO (which isn't technically supported but with some jiggling fits just fine) for $25 from a local micro center for my 1080ti and I got a much better overclock, 65C temps, and absolutely silent performance. In my opinion, it's a much better option than this jank morpheus setup because from the looks of the things, not only is it cheaper, but the rest of gpu motherboard is cooled not by shitty heatsinks, but by a dedicated secondary fan blowing directly onto the board, which is included with the nzxt kraken. According to my monitoring software, the memory was actually cooler than stock with this setup, even with a nice oc. What makes it even better is that because of its simple design, it will fit pretty much any gpu (even the ones that aren't technically supported), so you bet your ass I'm gonna try to jank it on a 3000s series when I find a 3080 or something for a good price.

    VRM heat sink falls off runs Furmark with power limits maxed fans barely running Linus you were trying to get that 2080ti to catch fire i know it also these aftermarket heatsinks are for cards that don't have good AIB models mostly Vegas since your probably going to watercool Titans and you can get a good AIB model for just about everything else

    I use the Accelero Xtreme IV. Dropped my FE 1080Ti down from 84c and the noise of a hoover, to 55c without the fans spinning up (as in from their lowest speed). A few weeks later it now hits 70c max, but fans still don't really speed up. Massively helped my tinnitus!

      @NicoSwagzawa I think @HyPn0o covered what i'd have bothered to type in reply to you (Cheers hyp for backing me up). Linus absolutely bodged this review.

    • HyPn0o

      @NicoSwagzawa Linus failed to take proper care & i agree with Jim it was a half arsed instal. Absolutely does matter how well or bad Linus installed VRM or Memory heatsinks & how well he applied thermal paste.... by what reasoning would you think it wouldnt?!!! Raijenteks website 'feature page' has some rendered mock up GPU illustrations but whats actually included in the box is detailed on the 'Unboxed' section on very same webpage. Lets face it that 'feature page' is not the instructions now is it - so using that to mock Jim.N here looks pretty bloody stupid considering the actual 'instructions' are clearly down as listed as included in box... blinkerd fanboyism of Linus is not constructive.

    • HyPn0o

      Nice results Nivek, was surprised to see Linus make such an ass of this and kinda hate on the product... as when googling else where it's been getting a massive thumbs up, even found some guy on a GPU forum showing it keeping a GTX2080ti around an average of 58/59c with no higher than a peak of 65c when using two 1200rpm fans within a tiny enclosed case!

    • NicoSwagzawa

      @Jim N You obviously didn't read my comment, did you? I said Raijintek is displaying ON THEIR PRODUCT PAGE a Nvidia card without *any* of the VRM heatsinks applied. It doesn't even matter how improperly he applies any of them. That only leaves the GPU heatsink to mess up, and we saw the whole process on camera. It's only applying paste and screwing the heatsink to the back plate. Hell, according to Raijintek's own instructions, adding fans to it is *optional*, so Linus could have even just run this thing without fans and still have installed this cooler properly by Raijintek's own standard. The manual is available on their site, if you don't believe me.

    • Jim N
      Jim N

      @NicoSwagzawa Havent watched the full video then have you; as Linus didn't clean the mem or VRM's properly before mounting the heatsinks and then complains of poor adhesion by sticky thermal pads - so begs the question what else had he not done with due care inbetween cuts/edits/takes unseen to us via video wonder? The pads supplied i had no issues with on either my cards (As in they were on first time, sealed tight and not budging), but then i took my time to clean everything properly. Considering my 980Ti and 1080ti (Both known to be very hot cards), stayed in low 60's with 1400 rpm fans adjusted down to 70% of their max speed; i disagree with you. Now I'm all for water cooling (My cpu is water cooled), but this GPU air cooler is upto task or else i'd have my GPU under water aswell... (lol...)

    Sure my reference 2080Ti has a shitty ugly and noisy heatsink but when u paid only 1000$CAD on the used market "761$USD" and no taxes, there's no way I would have paid +400-500$ just for a better PCB & Heatsink cause in the end both are still just 2080Ti so will get pretty much the same performance anyway.
