Cryorig H7 Air Cooler Review

Rating: 9.0.

Billed as a ‘Hyper 212 EVO’ killer, I have been itching to review the Cryorig H7 for a long time now. On the face of it, it does not look that special, measuring just 145mm tall and utilising a mere 3 heatpipes. But is its appearance deceiving? We will find out.

The ‘budget air cooling’ market segment is a competitive area, and manufacturers have long been trying to hit the price-to-performance sweet-spot. Previously, we have seen the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO dominate in this segment, but today we assess the performance of the Cryorig H7, priced at £36.95. Read on for the full review, where we look at the cooler’s features, installation process and performance before giving our final verdict.

    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.
