CRYORIG H7 Quad Lumi

Cryorig originated in 2013 and has been climbing the PC Cooling ladder with innovative ideas and unique product. We recently had hands on their Cryorig 240mm AIO with 37.5mm radiator and waterblock top 3000 RPM fan and were impressed. So impressed we ask them to send over their Cryiorg H7 Quad Lumi air cooled CPU cooler to take a look at. The H7 Quad Lumi is the logical successor to the H7 line and low and behold Cryorig decided to dip their fans in the RGB rage and keep all the good features of the H7 and expand on them. The H7 Quad Lumi has one more heatpipe than the H7 and they use a proprietary Convex-Align™ System which staggers the heat pipes covering more area and whisking away that pesky heat.

Cryorig A40 Hybrid

Cryorig founded in 2013 faced an uphill battle establishing their brand, here they are 4 years later still expanding their product line and thriving in a super competitive environment. The Cryorig A40 Ultimate Hybrid Liquid Cooling is a unique 240mm AIO water cooling CLC (Closed Loop Cooling) AIO) with a small fan that site right on top the waterblock blowing cooling air across the block and chokes both not only cooling the block but the critical power delivery system around the CPU. The 140mm fans they include with the kit are just super quiet but when the going gets tough the 3000RPM kicks in and you can hear the little bugger cranking out that air cooling the entire CPU area. Cryorig uses Asetek as the OEM manufacturer and Asetek is known for quality and Cryorig designed the 5th gen pump offering some of the newest Asetek technology and offers improved performance over previous generations.

CPU’s are getting faster and sporting more cores than ever and as that happens the need for increased cooling capacity increases. Large bulky air coolers with multiple fans towering over your CPU and filling a large part of your chassis are an option but All In One water-cooling is fast becoming mainstream. Typically they are easy to install, zero maintenance and outperform air cooling. The prices on the AIO coolers have dropped as demand has gone up and even the RGB AIO’s have gotten to a reasonable price point. Cooler Master sent us their MasterLiquid ML120L and ML240L RGB AIO water-coolers to take a gander at.

Corsair LL120 RGB

Computer case fans have become a necessity for our computer builds. Let’s face it, we need to get rid of all of the heat our high-end computer components generate quickly and effectively out of our computers chassis. By doing so we keep our computer components cooler; which, gives us users less serious problems down the road, as well as, increase the life expectancy of our computers by keeping them cooler. The Corsair LL120 RGB, 120mm Dual Light Loop RGB 3 Pack​ is an excellent choice for air movement and maximum bling.

With new CPU chips commonly capable of 5GHz and chips with anywhere up to 18 cores capable of 4.5GHz or more CPU cooling is a whole new ballgame!  With the Z170, Z270, Z370 and  X399 chipsets on the market and sporting super fast and mega multi-core designs AIO (All In One) water cooling is all the rage and becoming more the norm for enthusiasts and high-end platforms. EVGA is in the water cooling arena and hit it with a 120mm (Single Radiator one 120mm fan), 240mm (Dual Radiator two 120mm Fans), and a 280mm (Dual Radiator two 140mm Fans) and we have all three on the test bench.

Installing cooling fans on your PC chassis can be tricky particularly if go for high-RPM fans or installing on thin aluminum panels. In such scenarios, the fan could produce vibrations that would produce noise and to some extent could lead to damaging your hardware. Fortunately, Noctua got something to address such issues with their NA-SAV3 and NA-SAV4 anti-vibration mounts.
