Introduction Should I be ashamed of myself as a reviewer? In a general sense, I get pretty excited about most of the new computer component releases I see. In comparison to my levels of excitement though, I tend to get more excited about the companies with smaller brand recognition than I do about the really big names. Sure, I should probably live for nothing else than to get my hands on Volta or Vega, but right now I can’t help being really excited about what I’m seeing from Raijintek. They have multiple cooling and chassis components being released that are looking absolutely phenomenal! Today however, we will need to take a look at just one of their newer designs in the Paean Bench Chassis. The name is actually a word that defines a song of triumph or praise, but the pronunciation may seem a bit….different, for American vernacular. (I’ll let you look it up.) Raijintek is offering something rather unique here, since the design has all the earmarks of a good bench case, but all of the class of a quality open frame case. Whether it stands out as a successful design is yet to be seen, but we can take a quick look at who Raijintek is and what motivates their designs.
A while back, Raijintek introduced some new CPU coolers that were pretty excellent. Well, I inadvertently let them off my radar, but that didn’t stop them from going crazy with awesome new product designs. Why am I writing about this? I’m saying that you will probably be interested in the new designs coming out of this company. For starters, they have numerous aluminum case designs that mix a great aesthetic blend of gaming and professional looks. Not many designers try to compete in this field but I think Raijintek is bringing some great things to the table. On the top of that list is the Paean. This is one of the nicest open designs I’ve personally seen and would also make a great test bench as well, imho. I was digging through their products and noticed an aftermarket air cooler called the Morpheus II Core Edition. A black coated air cooler for GPU cooling up to 360 watts? Yes, please! Raijintek also has products ranging from CPU air coolers and RGB LED fans, as well a nice assortment of custom loops liquid cooling parts. It looks like they’re just getting started and I have high hopes that we have some great things in store from them in the future.
