Looks like it should be a very nice cooler. Ticks all the boxes; PWM fans, offset to clear RAM not too wide, not too tall, good mount design.

This would be great backup for my Swiftech H320 incase its pump dies needs a Rma.

That is one potent looking cooler. Would love to test one of those out,

Sorry I haven't posted more info. Have been testing mine and love it. Mounting is a breeze, everything works like it says on the tin, couldn't be happier.

Running it on a different setup than I used for Phanteks PH-TC14PE and Silver Arrow SB-E (GA-EX58-UD3R died; replaced with GA-X58A-UD3R) so can't really compare until I do some more testing with them on this motherboard. But as it stands right now I believe it is cooling better than they did by 2-4c. In fact I think it's very close to Silver Arrow SB-E with TY-143 130cfm 2500rpm fans. And when I tested the I tested 14PE with TY-143 fans it was 2-4c cooler than SA SB-E E. I have not ran they TY-143 fans on R1 Ultimate yet but do plan to at some point.

Needless to say I plan on keeping this one for some time. :D

CryOrig has released the line of R1 Ultimate, R1 Universal (has better RAM clearance), XT140 fan and XF140 fan in Japan, Korea, Tiawan and Germany now. The MSRP is $89.90 US but the German internet price is € 69.90.. Subract 19% VAT and that is closer to $79.00. UK price is supposed to be £55 (£46 + VAT) according to Vortez.. although I have not seen anyone advertising it here yet. If that is true than about $76.00.

Vortez comparison of R1 Ultimate show:
Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme 2.6c cooler,
Silverstone HE01 is only 0.5c cooler,
Dark Rock Pro 2 is 4.1c warmer,
NH-D14 SE2011 is 7.9c warmer.

Vortez only monitors room ambient instead of monitoring the temperature of air going into cooler / radiator. Not using cooler/radiator intake air temp when testing in a case means CLCs have definite advantage over air coolers because
  • they move more air through case (their fans are additional exhaust from case)
  • they dump all their own heated air outside of case
  • air coolers dump their heated air inside of case
  • raising the case air temperature
  • every degree warmer the air going into cooler/radiator is translates to about a degree warmer the CPU is
My hypothesis is that is why results of reviewers using case testing systems show CLCs having cooler CPU temps than top air coolers.. while open bench test station results show CLC and air coolers temps being very similar.

Regardless. I monitor air temp going into cooler. That's the critical temperature, not what the room temp is.
I know

Another Cryorig R1 Ultimate review is out!
NIKK Tech shows XSPC Raystorm 750 EX280 being 4.6c cooler than Cryorig R1 Ultimate. Interesting how a cooler (H2O) costing almost 3 times as much is only 4.6c cooler. ;)
