Cryorig R1 Ultimate: Performance Test 1
Our first CPU Cooler Performance Test takes use of the included TIM and fans included with each CPU cooler. The Cryorig R1 Ultimate includes two fans for a push setup and a small tube of Cryorig branded TIM which can be reused for multiple installations. The purpose of this test is NOT to prove which cooler is better, but rather to give our readers an expectation of what to expect from each cooler using the stock fans and TIM.

The XF140 fans from Cryorig have a measured RPM rating from 800 to 1400 making them reasonably quiet when compared to the high RPM fans that companies such as Raijintek and Silverstone include with their CPU coolers. Although the Cryorig R1 Ultimate falls behind other coolers in this section, it still manages to stay within 5% of the Silverstone TD02-E which is our top contender in this test. Both the Scythe Mugen Max and the Cryorig R1 Ultimate are the obvious winners here, as they manage to be at the bottom left of the table.
Heating things up always turns to be more positive for air coolers as they are more resilient when exposed to higher temperatures. Take a look at both the Silverstone TD03-E and the Raijintek Triton, which both beat the Cryorig R1 Ultimate in part 1 of this test. On part 2, the Cryorig R1 Ultimate manages to out-beat them by a large margin with only the Silverstone TD02-E, a dual 120 mm AIO water cooler which features high RPM fans, and the Scythe Mugen Max lowering the temperatures of our overclocked i5-4670k even further.
