Cryorig C7

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Compared to the stock cooler of the Ryzen 5 3600 how much better is the Cryorig C7 $33 ? I need to use a top blow fan so that it can also cool my VRM on my motherboard so yeah. And there's also the ID Cooling IS40X $20 is it good or bad?

not that much. but C7 is quite noisy. i have no idea abut the id cooling IS40x though.

and a whole lot of LED everywhere(behind the monitor, behind the desk, behind the shelf of the PC mount and inside the case)

C7 is good if you replace the fan with a Noctua. Do you have a CPU cooler height limitation due to your case? Otherwise there are other downdraft coolers to consider (including the big brother of the IS-40, the IS-60), but a C7 should be sufficient for a 3600. The main advantage of 3rd party coolers vs stock is most will be quieter, and possibly run cooler CPU cooler by a few degrees.

Damn top blow coolers sure are expensive but performs nearly to a stock cooler. I might just stay to stock cooler for now and if the VRM temps are not that high I'll just switch to a normal CPU cooler that isn't top flow like ID Cooling or Deepcool

Oh i just remembered. i think wraith max is a top down cooler for about $37

What motherboard are you using? You generally don't need a lot of active airflow and a larger traditional tower cooler for lower cpu temps would still provide some airflow over the board and probably be better overall.

The C7 isn't much better than the stock cooler and the IS-40X is only slightly better.

 

Are you not satisfied with the stock cooler? What ram are you using?

Where are you shopping / located? Budget?

Gigabyte B450 ITX Aorus Pro.

The IS 40X is "slightly" better than the stock? but it's better than the C7? If it's better than the C7 I might get it. C7 costs $37 in my place while IS 40X costs $18

The motherboard heatsinks are pretty beefy and you probably don't need nearly as much active airflow as you think.

The IS-40X seems to be slightly better than the C7 but I generally wouldn't recommend it when you can fit much larger coolers in the case.

Well tbh I don't have all the parts yet. It's just that the only reason why I want a top flow cooler is to also cool the VRMs I know that might sound weird but there's already that thing where B450 VRMs are apparently shit except for some MSI boards and since I've got an ITX one (its probably a little bit worse too?) I'm pairing it with a Ryzen 5 3600 (no plans on overclocking) I've read that some people get VRM temps around 70°C and for some I know it's not that bad but for me I would probably want to keep mine at least around 50°C to 60°C. I know someone with a Ryzen 7 2700X + B450 I Aorus Pro and his VRM temps (while gaming) are only at 50°C - 55°C My thoughts are that the stock top blow fan helped cool the VRMs. I'm also thinking that since 3000 series CPUs are more "efficient" apparently I don't know if that's true or not and it consumes less power than the Ryzen 7 2700X that my friend does then my VRM temps would be better or at least near his.

The motherboard heatsinks and even a bit of case airflow which the stock case fans should already provide should be fine already.

Why are you so concerned about vrm temps? Are you willing to sacrifice cpu temps and potential performance for the sake of vrm temps? 

You can always use the stock cooler first and decide whether or not to replace it after seeing the results.

Just for @Tenma White

 

I always get higher VRM temps than CPU core temps. (MSI B450ITX Gaming Plus).  

 

I have two ideas which can help. I can install a top fan in my case, which would directly blow fresh air onto the VRM heatsink. 

 

And had another impulse: installing an oversized fan onto the cpu cooler heatsink (so,  140 mm fan with 120mm fastening pattern, ie AKASA VIPER R or Cryorig xt140.

 

I imagined, that the excess diametre of the fanblades would provide better airflow over the motherboards heatsink. Yet to test either of them though. I don't have the fans yet.

Cause I keep seeing people saying that B450 motherboards reaching  vrm temps over even 90°C I don't know if that's even legit and I'm worried about that.

90c isn't great but it's still safe. You can see what temps are like with the stock cooler and lower fan speeds before deciding on what type of aftermarket cooler to get.
