Cryorig C7 CPU Cooler Review

Chad's CPU Cooler Test System Specifications




I would like to thank ASUS, InWin, Patriot, and Fractal Design for supplying products for me to test with.


To see our testing methodology and to find out what goes into making our charts, please refer to our CPU Cooler Testing and Methodology article for more information.



Thermal Results




The stock results are exactly what the in-house testing from Cryorig showed us this cooler would offer as we peaked at 65 degrees. Also considering the company it keeps in the charts, it is right there in the mix with many low-profile and compact cooler designs.




As we expected before we even started the testing, the Cryorig C7 and its 100W TDP is not enough to tame our test system. While we did hit the throttle point of our 4770K, the cooler held on for a full seven minutes before giving up the ghost. It did try to hang in there at around 91 degrees, but saturation took its toll and the C7 failed to pass this portion of testing.



Noise Level Results




Limiting fan voltage for the stock run as we always do, we found the 92mm fan to be spinning at 1800 RPM at this point. At that time, we were delivered only 26 dB of noise, and outside of the two-foot range, it is hard to tell if the CPU cooler or the video card cooler is what you hear.




As we tortured both the C7 cooler and our 4770K, we found that with 12 volts running through the fan that it indeed does spin at 2500 RPM, but was still only delivering 40dB of noise at this time. Of course, there are more silent options, but rarely at this cost, and it blows the Intel stock cooler away in this respect too.
