I want to start this post off saying Happy New Years! Hope everyone had a good one.
Today I wanted to talk about the Cryorig C7 low profile CPU cooler. I recently bought this a few weeks ago as a replacement for my Intel stock cooler. I chose to go with a low profile cooler because I am using a Corsair Air 240 as a case and it has height issues with coolers over 120mm. Which is why you typically see these with AIO (All In One for those new to cpu coolers) liquid coolers. A link to the item on Amazon will be included at the end of the post. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised at how efficient and quiet this little cooler is.
My previous idle temps on my i5-2400 were around 45 C and with this upgraded cooler I saw a drop to 39-40 C depending on ambient temperatures. The biggest change was when under load, with my stock Intel cooler I was easily hitting 75-76 C. With my new cooler I play for hours and have yet to break 61 C. Another great highlight to this cooler are the grooves cut into the side of the fan housing that promote more air flow and quieter operation. Even under heavy gaming load you hardly hear more than a slight humming sound. I was very impressed with Cryorig fitting 4 heat pipes into this as well as a nice aluminum heat sink that does not interfere with RAM.
I would not recommend this to overlockers because of the excess temperatures overclocked CPU's can generate.
Thank you everyone for reading. If you like what you read I would appreciate the follow, if you have comments or disagree please drop me a comment I would love to talk about it.
