Lets get this out of the way. No, I don't know exactly how to pronounce it either; however, it doesn't matter as long as they deliver a quality product. New to the DIY PC market, Cryorig starts it career in the SFF CPU cooling department with the C1.
The Cryorig C1 CPU cooler is designed to be small but maintain a high-end performance. The C1 sports a 140 mm PWM fan, 6 pure copper heatpipes, and a JetFin Acceleration System to ensure the highest possible performance within its 144.5 x 74 x 140 millimeters dimensions. And just to ease your fears, the C1 comes with a 6 year warranty once registered on Cryorig's website.
The CRYORIG C1 low-profile CPU Cooler is available from e-tailers and retailers in Europe and North America starting June. Our friends in Asia will get their hands on the C1 by May. I am a little excited to see what some new blood will bring to the CPU cooler market. This could be good for everyone especially us DIY users.

CRYORIG C1: Compact High-End CPU Cooler for ITX- and Micro-ATX Systems
04-22-2014 – CRYORIG, newcomer in the professional PC cooling solutions market, announces hereby, that the C1 CPU cooler for ITX systems has completed rigorous testing and is now in production. The C1 is CRYORIG’s first product for the growing ITX PC ecosystem with a total height of only 7.4 centimeters. “With the increase of APU’s and enthusiasts level ITX mainboards and components, ITX systems are no longer limited to under powered components like they used to be.”, mentions CRYORIG Co-Founder and Chief Manufacturing Engineer Alex Wang. “ITX systems now are housing high performance, high TDP CPU’s and GPU’s. Cooling these crucial components is an even greater challenge in these tight spaces. What I think we achieved with the C1 is a solution that has outstanding performance for it’s size, and provides a great user experience thanks to its hassle free easy installation and robust accessories. Everything you need is in the box.”
The CRYORIG C1 continues to build on the foundation of the much-acclaimed R1 Ultimate/Universal, by combining multiple technological innovations in a user-friendly package. Thanks to the combination of the DirectCompress™ technology and a silent 140 mm PWM fan, the C1 is able to keep cool High-End CPUs from both Intel© and AMD© with a TDP beyond 140 Watts!
This incredible performance is proof of concept and innovates the ITX cooling solutions market. The C1 is a low-profile Cooler with a total weight of 628 grams (with fan) and the dimensions 144.5 x 74 x 140 millimeters. Furthermore, total of 6 fully sintered pure copper heatpipes have been utilized, including 4 double TDP capacity U-Type heatpipes. Additional performance boost is achieved thanks to the JetFin Acceleration System™ that utilizes varying fin gap layers for faster exhaust airflow. The nickel-plated baseplate is made of pure solid copper and uses the Heatpipe Convex-Align™ technology, which allows the heatpipes to be concentrated directly above the center of the CPU.
The C1 comes with CRYORIG’s XT140 140mm Slim Profile PWM fan with 13-millimeter thickness, to assure optimum airflow and cooling capabilities. Pre-installed XT140 features the HPLN™ (High Precision Low Noise) bearing, offering stable and precision movement eliminating excess vibration and noise. Built-in four Acoustic Vibration Absorbers located in the corners, assures low noise operation. In PWM mode, the fan operates at speeds from 700 to 1.300 RPM, which allows it to move 65 cubic feet per minute at silent 28 to 30 dBA. Users, seeking even more performance, are able to mount the stronger and 25,4 mm thick CRYORIG XF140 140 mm PWM fan.
