CRYORIG, launched just five months ago, is a new participant in the cooling market. Until today, it didn't have any products on the market, but that has now changed. It has launched its CRYORIG R1 CPU cooler, which is a dual-tower CPU cooler with many heat pipes.
The cooler features seven 6 mm thick heat pipes that are soldered together at the base. The technique that CRYORIG uses to accomplish this is what they call DirectCompress, allowing for up to 10 percent more contact than traditional methods. In addition, the cooler features two fin stacks per tower, each with a different gap between fins.
The R1's fans are created from the company's own design. It features one XF140 fan, which is a 25.4 mm thick 140 mm fan that can push up to 76 CFM at 1300 RPM while making up to 23 dBA of noise. The other fan is a low-profile 13 mm thick 140 mm fan that can push up to 65 CFM at 1300 RPM and will make up to 24 dBA of noise.
In total, with the fans the cooler weighs 1,181 grams and measures 130 x 140 mm, with a height of 168.3 mm. It can also be mounted on every modern CPU socket including LGA1150, LGA2011 as well as AMD's AM3 socket.
The company gave no word on pricing or availability.

Looks to be a good first entry into the high end cooling market.Reply
Depending on the price, this could be a good alternative to noctua's big air coolers.
Looking forward to the price and reviews!
Could more heatpipes compensate for thinner (seemingly) fin arrays when compared to the NH-D14? Tom's? :DReply
Should cool a 290X adequately.Reply
With enough velcro.
Looks like it should be all sorts of RAM friendly, which is good to see.Reply
We'll see how having two different fin stacks per tower works out for them though.
When I first read the name I thought this was a collaboration between Crytek (CRY) and EA (ORIG), is it actually affiliated with either of those companies?Reply
Looks good, now how does it perform, time for some benchmarks Tom'sReply
Maximum Fan. No? Ok.Reply
