This is the first time we have visited the Cryorig booth at a Computex so when we got the invite to go along, we eagerly accepted to see what they had for us. Cryorig is a relatively young company, having only been founded in 2013, but in just a few years they have made great strides in the world of PC cooling.
We kick things off with the Cryorig C7 RGB low profile CPU cooler, which is the latest version of the C7 which we have previously reviewed, but with the addition of RGB lighting on the fans. Aside from the previous aluminium version (with copper heat pipes), Cryorig have also released an all copper version for improved hear transfer. The RGB LED is only along the centre of the fans, which provides a more subdued glow.
For those that prefer their CPU coolers big, Cryorig has updated their H7 cooler; the H7 Plus and the H7 Ultra. The H7 Plus is the same as the H7 but now with a dual 120mm fan setup so heat can be removed as efficiently as possible. The H7 Plus sports additional heat pipes, now 8 in total, for even more thermal transfer. The M9 cooler in the centre of the photo has been refreshed by adding an extra fan.
At this point, if you are looking for more RGB inside your PC case, look no further than the new Cryorig Crona 120 RGB fans. The standout feature of the Crona fans is that the front bracket is completely missing, allowing you to view the RGB ring of the Crona unobstructed from all angles. Contain 16 addressable LEDs, the RGB illumination of the Crona can either be set via the controller which is supplied or directly via the motherboard.
Winner of one of Computex 2018’s showcase awards, the Cryorig Frostbit is a M.2 SSD heatsink. What sets the Frostbit apart from other M.2 SSD heatsinks is that it is the first in the industry to incorporate a heat pipes for greater thermal transfer. There are actually 2 heat pipes in the Frostbit, one from the top of the heat sink to the fins, the other is a 1mm ultra thin heat pipe that sits directly on top of your M.2 SSD and then routes to the fins. The heat pipes themselves can be angled from the heatsink, making installing around a cramped PC case much easier.
Cryorig only makes 1 single PC case, and that is the Taku. The Taku reminds me of one of those minimalist desktop riser hub things, something that you can use to raise the height of your monitor. The main casing is constructed out of sand-blasted anodised aluminium and apart from the power button, there’s nothing else at the front.
A flight push of the front plate and the main compartment slides out. Due to the compactness of the Taku, there are hardware restrictions such as it only takes a mini-ITX motherboard, CPU coolers have a maximum height of 48mm, the graphics card cannot be longer than 280mm, and you can only use SFX or SFX-L power supplies.
