All good things come to an end, as the saying goes, and today sees the last part of our Cryorig mini-series as we take a jaunt to see what this new/old-ish company has been up to. Our focus this time is the diminutive C7, a top-down cooler measuring just 47mm in height including its 92mm fan. There certainly is ample market for small things as, according to many sources, our PCs are getting smaller and thinner. I’m not just talking about Apple’s desperate attempt to make a lettuce leaf look robust and weighty but desktops like the Shuttle are rising in popularity as people attend more BYOC Lan events and don’t want to lug around a huge tower.
Of course what every PC needs no matter its size is a CPU cooler that can do its job and cope with the demand of modern games and apps. Is the C7 up to the task despite is short stature? Four heat pipes and a fan that spins at a whopping 2500RPM would say yes, but the specifications don’t always tell the whole story… and speaking of specifications, here are all the relevant numbers for the Cryorig C7 after which we will, as usual, go on to look at the cooler in more detail.
