CRYORIG R1 Universal Review

From the CRYORIG website:

CRYORIG was officially founded in 2013, but took several years in the making. We began our journey right at the start of the first decade of the 2000's. During what was the most prosperous age of PC DIY and Overclocking. Members of our team have either worked directly or indirectly with brands such as Thermalright, Prolimatech, Phanteks and many more. We ourselves are overclockers and PC modding enthusiasts, with a passion and drive to strive for improvement. With direct knowledge of manufacturing and design as well as holding multiple patents under our collective belt, we decided to make a name for ourselves, and that name is CRYORIG. So what is CRYORIG exactly? CRYORIG is about making the coolest rig possible.

CRYORIG is a newcomer in the cooling industry that has come out swinging. It is not often new companies emerge to change the way we look at traditional heatsink and fan designs, but that is exactly what they have done. The R1 coolers are big, monstrous even, and have a unique look all their own. There are two flavors: the R1 Universal and R1 Ultimate. As one might guess, the R1 Ultimate is the no-holds-barred top-of-the-line cooler while the R1 Universal tones it back just a bit for greater compatibility with enthusiast memory.

In today's review, I look at CRYORIG's R1 Universal. Featuring seven Ø6 mm heatpipes, dual 140 mm fans, and a few patented features, the R1 series has the looks, specifications, and technology to be a top contender. Coming in at 1181 g, this twin tower design falls into the heavyweight category with the likes of be quiet!'s Dark Rock Pro 2, Phanteks' PH-TC14PE, and Deepcool's Gamer Storm Assassin. The amazing memory compatibility is what really sets the R1 Universal apart from its competitors. The only question is whether its focus on memory compatibility affects cooling. Let's find out!
