Cryorig C7 CPU Cooler Review 99 |

One thing we have found out about Cryorig is that they always seem to be up to something new. From the onset, they have done impressive things, not only for CPU cooler aesthetics, but they also have a knack for getting good performance from coolers you initially would not assume to perform as such. The larger coolers we have seen like the R1 and both of the H series coolers did well. Looking at the other end of the game, however, we also looked at the C1 and the M9i, which are either low profile or very compact in nature. These coolers, while small, still offered us with options we would have no issues with using in their niche environments.

Continuing with compact coolers, Cryorig now offers something, even more, compact. So much so that the overall height has been kept to just 47mm to fit in the tiniest of cases. On top of that, this cooler also offers some of the easiest mounting software found on CPU coolers, and also is designed not to interfere with anything around the CPU. While many coolers such as this have already passed through our labs for testing, if the past is any indication of things to come, we should have a solid 100W TDP cooler that can certainly hold its own with almost any currently offered processor in say a tiny HTPC or internet surfing and email box.

Of course, this cooler will not be for everyone, and is intended to be a stock cooler replacement, yet yielding better results than what the stock solutions do. Along with a cooling boost, also take into consideration that there is no comparison when it comes to noise levels in this latest offering either. In the Cryorig C7, which we are about to cover, near silence even in the hottest of conditions makes the C7 a pleasurable replacement to your ears, and as you will soon read, the Cryorig C7 ships for a very affordable price as well.

The Cryorig C7 will fit into any system supporting the sockets types shown across the top of the specifications chart. This is done with simple yet very effective adjustable mounting pre-installed to fit Intel sockets out of the box, and by changing a screws position and moving the standoff, it easily adapts to AMD sockets. Moving down slightly, we run into a trio of renderings of the C7, and these cover the dimensional aspects of the design, explain that the cooler is 97mm square and stands only 47mm including the fan mounted on top of it.

At the bottom of the chart, to the left side, is where the specifications for the heat sink can be seen. The C7 dimensions are shown again along with the 357 grams of total weight just below it. This design also incorporates four 6mm diameter heat pipes that run through 57 fins that are spaced 1.2mm apart. The base is made from C1100 copper, the pipes are copper as well, and both are plated nickel to fight corrosion. With this design, there are no limitations as to which height memory can be run next to it, and lastly we read that this cooler sports a 100W TDP.

In the bottom right corner of the chart, we then get into fine detail about the included fan that cools the heat sink. Cryorig offers up this 92mm fan that is 15mm thick and accounts for 62 grams of the overall weight. The fan will spin in a range of speed from 600 to 2500 RPM, with a rating of 30dBA for maximum noise level. The fan is also rated to deliver 40.5CFM and 2.8mmH2O of air flow and pressure, respectively.

Searching for this cooler turned up very little via Google. We had actually to search the sites to find listings. Pretty much the top five sites we frequent all offer a listing, and we found that the big two, Amazon and Newegg are both listing the C7 with identical offers currently. Both show the C7 with a $29.99 price tag, and both are offering free shipping in the deal too. As we alluded to earlier, for everything that this cooler promises, you have to look hard to find a way not to justify this minimal cost.

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
