CRYORIG C7 Cu – Dat Copper Tho

Just before Computex 2017, we were treated to a sneak preview of something different – the CRYORIG C7, but in all copper form. With claims of 10-15% improvement in initial testing, down to community members reporting no real improvement, the C7 Cu has been a controversial product to say the least. With a review unit in hand (finally!), today we set out to review the C7 Cu versus the original aluminium variant. Unfortunately, we gave away our original CRYORIG C7 some time ago, so with the help of SFF Network Patrons, we picked up a new one to enable apples …

CRYORIG at Computex 2017

During Computex 2017, we had the opportunity to visit CRYORIG’s booth, full of aluminium, copper and wood! Ever since Computex last year, we’ve been looking forward to seeing CRYORIG’s Taku case in the flesh. For those that are unfamiliar, the Taku is a unique combination of monitor stand and PC case, with the base model coming replete with wooden feet (an unusual material in the enclosure space, to say the least). As such, it’s certainly piqued our interests, as it has simply been something we haven’t seen from a manufacturer before, both functionally and aesthetically. Given this, and given that CRYORIG …

Thermal Paste – A Roundup, Updated

Physics is a fair but harsh mistress. For while the heatspreader on your CPU – and the base of your CPU cooler – may look smooth, flat and able to make perfect contact, this is far from the case. Microscopic surface imperfections present on all metallic surfaces work against the movement of energy, by preventing proper contact and thus reducing the efficiency of heat transfer. And while this can be improved with better machining (and in extreme cases, careful lapping of the surfaces), us mere mortals must suffice with the use of thermal paste to bond surfaces together. Especially when one considers common convex …

CRYORIG goes SFF with the Taku and the Ola

For Computex 2016, CRYORIG revealed their first foray into PC cases with two new projects. First up, the CRYORIG OLA is a Mac Pro inspired cylindrical HTPC/ ‘lifestyle’ ITX PC case (‘Trashcan’ form factor as they unfortunately have come to be known.. Thanks Apple..) with a focus on performance and cooling. CRYORIG seems to want the OLA to be a ‘designer’ system – a centrepiece in a home theatre setup. However, they have also ensured that it’s not form over function, with support for full length graphics cards (no specifics as to what defines full length unfortunately), and a 140mm exhaust fan …

CRYORIG: “08.12.15 Taipei, Taiwan – We at CRYORIG have the following information and statement to make, regarding the recent news and discussion regarding damaged PCB’s on Skylake CPU’s, which many in the industry believe is caused by abnormal heatsink mounting pressure during transportation of the PC system.

CRYORIG C7 – A New Contender Appears

The CPU cooler market sees near constant releases of new products – and yet, not much seems to be aimed at the Small Form Factor market segment.

CRYORIG Announces the C7 low-profile heatsink

CRYORIG has officially announced the super compact C7 heatsink. Coming in at just 47mm tall, it is only 2mm taller than the stock Intel heatsink but CRYORIG is claiming up to 25% better cooling performance while staying 20% quieter. The compact dimensions are designed to stay within both the Intel and AMD keep-out zones so it should not interfere at all with RAM slots, PCIe slots, VRM heatsinks, etc. I’m not a big fan (pun completely intended) of the proprietary fan though. It seems like a nice quality fan but things fail and attaching a standard 92mm fan will be tricky. …
