Cryorig C7 Low-Profile CPU Cooler Review

A Closer Look
The cooler comes mostly assembled and ready to rock, with a slim 92mm fan mounted on top, which comes fitted with a black braided cable to keep things looking neat and tidy.
The fan housing has a couple of built-in clips, allowing it to easily mount on the cooler without the use of tools; this also makes it easy to remove and maintain.
The cooling fans are packed in pretty tight and despite its compact size, this thing feels heavy-duty. There are some tightly packed heat pipes running from the thick block and they twist their way through the fins to ensure heat gets dissipated evenly throughout the cooler.
The fan covers almost the entire cooler too, so when viewed from above, the fan is about all you can see. The bonus here is that this is a gorgeous looking fan, and it’s sure to be a visual compliment to any system.
On the base, you’ll find the Intel brackets are pre-installed, but can be moved to an AMD configuration with the use of a screwdriver, and that should only take a few minutes to do. The CPU block has a good surface area and is two pieces with the heat pipes clamped between them to ensure reliable heat transfer.
Overall, this is a very capable looking cool and with that powerful yet compact fan on the top, we’re really looking forward to seeing what it is capable of.
