Introduction

We recently reviewed the Raijintek Themis CPU Cooler from Raijintek and we liked it. Raijintek have around nine CPU air cooler offerings one of which we have for review today, the Aidos CPU cooler.

Another CPU Direct Contact design; this is a slightly smaller CPU cooler aimed more at the mid-range market or the small form factor segment. Raijintek call this a compact size cooler that is designed to fit most chassis and motherboard combinations. As we said in our Themis review, Raijintek are a relatively new company, established in 2013, and they have an interesting product range.

From the Raijintek website;

AIDOS “Designed in Germany”, is a compact size cooler manufactured by several patents to reach advanced performance, quality and environmental protection. With multiple mounting kits and compact size, AIDOS can fit to most cases/boards, a full package and at a budget price point.
