Cryorig Announces its Second CPU Cooler: C1 ITX

The new startup company Cryorig has announced its second CPU cooler – the Cryorig C1 ITX. As its name implies, the cooler is built to be used in combination with small form factor Mini-ITX based systems.

The cooler is built on a low-profile design, and thus isn't very tall. Exact dimensions aren't available yet, but the use of the thin 140 mm XT PWM fan already makes it clear that the unit is meant to be very thin. This fan, which we've seen before, is a 13 mm thick fan which can rotate at speeds between 700 and 1300 RPM, pushing up to 65 CFM and making up to 30 dBA of noise.

Compatibility is set for most modern CPU sockets, from both AMD and Intel, though no clear word was available yet for which specific sockets would be excluded. Presumably, it won't have support for the LGA2011 socket, as we have yet to see a Mini-ITX board with that socket.

There is no clear word yet on what the unit would cost, though it is expected to be available sometime in May.

    May be a good low profile cooler, benchmarks plox

    Certainly looks very nice. Would love to see benches as well.

    May be too big covering connectors on ITX boards
