In today’s review we will present CRYORIG R1 Universal cooler which is on the market for some time but we had no chance to show it on the FunkyKit yet. I think it’s one of the most interesting coolers, especially for computer enthusiasts and overclockers who don’t want to use water cooling. Can it replace popular AIO water coolers ? You will find out on the next pages of this review.
In our tests we will show how CRYORIG R1 Universal is performing on the Intel Skylake platform which is the most popular gaming platform right now.
Patented DirectCompress™ Soldering, increases the actual contact surface between the heatpipe and heatsink fins. DirectCompress™ Soldering has up to 10% more contact surface compared to traditional soldering, and the more contact surface the faster the heat conduction.
Spreading Out and Making Room
On aluminum sheets, heat spreads out in a radial direction. By displacing the heatpipe alignment on the heatsink fins, our Heatsink Displacement Optimization™ allows for better and more evenly spread heat conduction on the fins compared to traditional linear alignment.
Accelerated Air Exhaust
The Faster the Cooler
The individual tower stack is separated into two sections, the loose air intake and the high density exhaust section. By the laws of fluid dynamics, the increase in fin count in the exhaust section squeezes airflow and increases exhaust air speed. The increase of airflow speed in our Jet Fin Acceleration System™ allows heated air leave the tower faster.
Optimized Heatpipe Positioning
Total CPU Coverage
The R1’s Heatpipe Convex-Align™ System allows for more heatpipes in a given area, optimized heatpipe placement in the copper base, and improved alignment with your CPU. With the Heatpipe Convex-Align™ System, each heatpipe functions to their maximum TDP capacity.
Kill the Noise
Silence is Cold
Acoustics are just as important as performance. That’s why both the XF140 and XT140 140mm fan integrate acoustic optimizations. Both fans featuring High Precision Low Noise (HPLN™) bearing and the detachable Acoustic Vibration Absorbers that give the fan a snugger fit while canceling vibration and noise at the same time.
Zero RAM Interference
Focusing on providing the widest range of compatibility, the R1 utilizes an asymmetric slanted heatpipe layout to move the front heatsink fin stack further away from the RAM zone. Also, fitted with a 13mm thin XT140 the CRYORIG R1 offers optimal compatibility for RAM with tall heat spreaders on both Intel (115X/1366/775) and AMD platforms.
Patent Pending “MultiSeg™” Quick Mount System
Patent Pending “Multiseg™” Quick Mount System providing an all in one solution on Intel platforms, CRYORIG’s MultiSeg™ Quick Mount System allows for a securer and firmer installation within minutes.
Small Boards Tall RAM?
Universal Means Compatible!
The R1 Universal is made to fit with high-end tall RAM,
even on smaller ITX boards. RAM tolerance is virtually unlimited!
