It’s always interesting to see a brand new company take form and release its first product, and this one is a beauty. This is the R1 CPU cooler by CRYORIG, a new cooling manufacturer that was founded this year.
The heatsink measures in at L130 mm x W140 mm x H168.3 mm, which is right in line with the Noctua NH-D14, Phanteks PH-TC14PE, and be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 2. It comes with a pair of 140mm fans that spin at up to 1300 RPM, although one is a narrow 13mm tall model. For full details, check out their product page.
It certainly looks the part, and should be interesting to see how well it performs. There isn’t a lot of info about the company itself – even their about us page is signed somewhat anonymously by their co-founder “Alex W”. I have reached out to them to see if they want to put it to the test on our red hot Intel test bench. Wait and see!
