Cryorig Enters the Mid-Range CPU Cooling Market

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 2 comments

Cryorig has revealed two mid-range CPU cooling products.

Editor's Note: While Computex took place last week and all of the news announcements are behind us, we're still sorting through hundreds of in-person meetings and demonstrations, picking out just a few more of the most interesting items we saw up close.

Cryorig, whom we gave an award for being the best startup at Computex 2014, was showcasing a number of new products, including a couple of mid-range products. The H5 and H7 coolers (the H5 is the physically bigger model), are simple tower heatsinks with a single fan mounted to them.

Both units are designed with the company's Hive Fin design located at the entrance of the fin stack, which focuses the airflow and accelerates it. Both units are also designed to not interfere with memory and are built with 6 mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes. The H5 is built with four heat pipes, while the H7 is built with three.


Placed on the H5 is the company's XT140 fan, which is a slim 140 mm fan with PWM support. The H7 has an SF120 120 mm fan mounted to it, also with PWM support.

The company also presented an early prototype of an H9, which would carry a 92 mm fan, though this product is still early in the development phase.

Pricing for the H5 is expected to sit at $50, with no official word on the H7. Both units come with six year warranties.

    It looks like these coolers have a very low fin density.
    I am interested to see how they perform, but I expect them to be competitive only with much more compact coolers.

    It's the "Hive Fin" design of the fins that causes them to have to have the fins farther apart and use less fins. It will be interesting to see if the "hive fin" thing is enough to counter the smaller number of fins.
