Cryorig H7 Air Cooler Review

The Cryorig H7 ships in a stylish black box, with a large photo of the air cooler being visible from the front.

Inside, all the installation hardware is supplied in labelled bags, and this is something I love to see – it just makes installation so much easier if you know exactly which screw or which washer is required.


The manual is comprehensive and straight-forward, although Cryorig have done something pretty helpful here: every step of the installation process has its own QR code. Scanning the code from your phone will take you to a video demonstration of how to complete that particular step. This is great for beginners, or even experienced users, who may get stuck while installing the H7.

After that, all that is left is the cooler itself.

The H7 ships with the fan pre-installed, so there is no need to faff about with the wire clips here. It is also a modestly-sized cooler, measuring just 145mm tall and 98mm long (front to back), including the fan.

That being said, I do think the H7 is very good-looking – it has a svelte black top, while the heatpipes have also been covered to make sure there is no unsightly copper on-show. The QF120 fan also has a small splash of colour around the middle which adds some interest to an otherwise monochrome cooler.

The Razer Blade with GTX 1060 not cut it? Why not upgrade it with a full on desktop GTX 1080 instead via the CORE system?

    Over the last year I have rediscovered my love for big air coolers and huge mechanical hard drives. I think the next thing on my list is replacing my mAtx Z170 gene board with a full size ATX. Maybe it’s because I turn 40 next year and I’m trying to hold onto my youth lol.

    this thing is the truth. I’ve built 4 PCs with it and it is so much easier to work with than the EVO and does a better job at cooling. With the credit card thermal paste technique you are saving a ton of money vs liquid. Oh, and the PCs I get with liquid cooling gone bad. Air cooling is where it’s still at.

    nice review!

    Cooling performance is very good – no doubt about it. The fan om my H7 Lumi Edt. broke down after only 6 months tho` so that was a let down. I`ve replaced it a Fractal Design Venturi HP12 and now it works even better 🙂

    Running this on an open test bench somewhat skews the results doesn’t it?

    99% of people will have their coolers in a closed case so shouldn’t expect the same temps as portrayed here.

    Are you an actual winner of the contest?
    Yeah, those limited edition gifts were hand made or one of a kind early sample parts.
    If you are indeed one of the original winners, we are more than happy to send you a official LED QF120 once they are on the market.

    Yes. I did win the Frost White Lumi Edition H7 on your year end giveaway. I won the 2nd prize..not the RGB-version, but the white-led one and thank you I could always use a 120mm RGB fan 🙂 contact: [email protected] Youll find that adress corresponds with your list of winners.
