General + -
With the R1 Universal, Cryorig definitely created one powerful CPU cooler, which also features good looks and high quality finish. The overall build quality is definitely good and a very high level. The nickel plated finish for example leaves an excellent impression. Apart from that, it comes with impressive cooling performance. It also features very good socket compatibility, despite the fact, that this is a huge twin-tower cooler.   - Performance
- Noise levels
- Quality
- Mouting
- Socket compatibility
Installation   + -
Mounting this cooler is easy and it can be done quickly on any socket as everything is clearly explained in the manuals. Even socket compatibility is good with this cooler, since the manufacturer is providing a slim fan. Apart from that the fans are easy to install too.   - Easy and practical - Thermal compound (Tube) - Compatibility  
Performance   + -
When it comes to cooling capacity we definitely can not complain. The R1 Universal is amongst the most powerful aircoolers and it's even better than some AIO liquid cooling systems.   - Cooling performances  
Noise Levels   + -
When it comes to noise levels, this cooler could be a little bit more silent. In the case of 7V we would have liked this cooler to be inaudible, but that is not the case since it can be described as silent. Also driven via the PWM signal it's not as silent as we would like it to be, although there is plenty of potential.   - Very Silent  
Recommendation / Price   + -
The Cryorig R1 Universal is a powerful twin tower cooler that comes with great looks finish and a price of 70 Euro. Therefore, it is expensive for an air cooler, but since this unit is performance very well it's worth the amount spent. Should you be looking for a high-end aircooler, then the R1 Universal is definitely worth considering.   - Gaming
- Overclocking
We gave the R1 Universal from Cryorig 4.5 out of 5 stars.
