Raijintek Pallas 120 RGB Review – Top Blower in Chic Black

At the end of last year Raijintek reissued the Pallas radiator, originally introduced in 2014: The two models Pallas 120 and Pallas 120 RGB are CPU coolers with a similar design, but a 120 mm fan instead of the previously used model with 140 mm frame width. This is accompanied by smaller dimensions, but the overall height remains identical at 68 millimetres.

But not only the fans and the size of the heat sink were adjusted, also the color of the coolers is new: In contrast to the original Pallas, the Pallas 120 and the Pallas 120 RGB rely on completely black heat sinks and fans.

In terms of price, the two newcomers are based on their predecessors: while the Pallas currently costs 43 euros, both versions of the Pallas 120 are available for around 40 euros. For the RGB-version, which is treated here in the test, no surcharge is required.

Scope of Delivery

The Raijintek Pallas 120 RGB is delivered in a colour printed cardboard box. Inside it is the cooler with the fan and the mounting material for all common sockets from Intel and AMD, except TR4.

Raijintek uses a separate metal backplate for both Intel’s small base and AM4. The mounting material, like the radiator, is largely black. As usual, heat-conducting paste is also supplied, but this comes in a disposable package and can therefore not be used for several installations. Last but not least there are additional fan clamps, which are not mentioned in the manual. The clamps are both intended for the original fan, so you have to rely on especially flat models. However, there is no second bracket on the radiator, so the additional clamps cannot be used to mount a second fan.
