In the box and Closer Look

Weighing over 1000 gram the R1 is quite a daunting product for mere CPU cooling task. Inside the box you'll find the R1 Universal heatsink with 2 fans attached, as well as a nicely organized installation gear kit.



The big 6mm heat pipes and two large arrays of cooling fins come in a fancy looking black anodized color. Fan shrouds in white color to provide nice contrast. The fans are 140mm and come with 4-pin PWM connector, the power cables are braided for easy cable management.



The fan clips hook up to a rubber insert on the fans to help reduce vibration noise. You can use the clips to attach 120mm fans, as long as they are flanged! The base is nicely polished with little room for improvement. On the last photo you can also see the mounting bracket pre-mounted to the base for easy installation.



Inside the cardboard tool box you'll find a rear bracket for AMD/Intel platform, the studs come with plastic washers pre-attached! That is quite a time savor, no chance of losing them here! The bottom compartment of the box holds additional fan clips, thermal paste (and alcohol pad to clean old paste!), installation tool and Y-cable for two 4-pin fans. Last but not least a fancy membership card with registration code for some benefits online at their site. Overall the packaging and build quality is unsurpassed, the attention to detail is ludicrous and it's not just "fancy" but also very practical and useful, hats off to the people at CRYORIG.
