Cryorig R1 Ultimate Cooler Review

Rating: 8.5.

Hot on the heels of our Cryorig H7 review we are looking today at the R1 Ultimate. A monster of an air cooler, the R1 Ultimate features twin 140mm fans, along with 7 copper heatpipes, while it measures nearly 170mm tall. If you want the best performance without buying a liquid cooler, could this be the answer?

Thanks to the excellent performance of the Cryorig H7, we have high hopes for the R1 Ultimate. It is also worth mentioning that the R1 Ultimate is priced at £76.99 here in the UK, so we will have to see if that represents good value or not. Read on for the full review, including our analysis of the cooler’s features, installation process and performance.

    Im thinking to buy the R1 since a lot, but im concerned about the noise.. My alternative would be a corsair h115i. Do you know wich is louder?

  • Josh Dauwalter

    I’m guessing this air cooler is quieter under load, but the water cooler is quieter when idling. Just a guess, though. My H100i V2 is basically silent under idle.

  • Dominic Moass

    I’m afraid I’ve never used a H115i so I couldn’t tell you. The R1 Ultimate isn’t hugely loud, it is just not as quiet as some competing air coolers I’ve tested recently.
