Full Contact Enhanced Performance

Patented DirectCompress Soldering, increases the actual contact surface between the heatpipe and heatsink fins. DirectCompress Soldering has up to 10% more contact surface compared to traditional soldering, and the more contact surface the faster the head conduction.

Optimized Heatpipe Positioning Total CPU Coverage
On aluminum sheets, heat spreads out in a radial direction. By displacing the heatpipe alignment on the heatsink fins, our Heatsink Displacement Optimization allows for better and more evenly speard heat conduction on the fins compared to traditional linear alignment.

Accelerated Air Exhaust The Faster the Cooler

The individual tower stack is separated into two sections, the lose air intake and the high density exhaust section. By the laws of fluid dynamics, the increase in fin count in the exhaust section squeezes airflow and increases exhaust air speed. The increase of airflow speed in our Jet Fin Acceleration System allows heated air leave the tower faster.

Spreading Out and Making Room

The R1’s Heatpipe Covex-Aligh System allows for more heatpipes in a given area, optimized heatpipe placement in the copper base, and improved alignment with your CPU. With the Heatpipe Convex-Align System, each heatpipe function the their maximum TDP capacity.

Kill the Noise Silence is Gold

Acoustics are just as important as performance. That’s why both the XF140 and XT140 140mm fan integrate acoustic optimizations. Both fans featuring High Precision Low Noise (HPLN) Sleeve Bearing and the detachable Acoustic Vibration Absorbers that gives the fan a snugger fit while canceling vibration and noise at the same time.

Patent Pending “MultiSeg” Quick Mount System

Patent Pending “Multiseg” Quick Mount System Providing an all in one solution on intel platforms, CRYORIG’s MultiSeg quick Mount System allow for a securer and firmer installation within minutes.
