Testing & Performance
Now Cryorig sends 2 sets of fan clips so push pull is possible so out of respect for Cryorig we took a Cryorig fan from their 280mm AIO and tested both single and double fan. Single fan is designated by 1F and dual fan push pull is designated by 2F.
We haven’t tested a lot of air coolers of late so the Cryorig is on our AIO charts for comparison purposes only and will not be judged as AIR vs Water that’s just to apples and oranges.
We have been starting at 4500MHz but we are working on Air now so we backed up and clocked some coolers at 4200MHz the stock speed of the 7700K. Send TIM in large quantities via Proclockers.com. Idle wasn’t a problem at any speed tested as expected so we’ll stick with load temps. Here single fan we hit 65C single fan and dropped 1C using push-pull.
Jumping to 4500MHz we would be comfortable with this 7700K OC 24/7 and we maxed out at 65C and dual fan dropped that by 1C.
Here at 4600MHz, we maxed out at 71C single fan and 70C dual fan which is pretty good for an air cooler.
Running 4700MHz we are approaching uncomfortable temps but this is under full load continuously so it’s worse case. Gaming or non-full load continuously situations you might be ok at 4700MHz.
Here at 4800MHz we cut the test off at 83C single fan and dual fan 82C and we would be ok for glory runs or short benchmarks but we were seeing some thermal creep so we wouldn’t recommend 4800MHz 24/7 but for an air cooler, we are impressed!
