Founded in 2013, Cryorig are a company you may not have heard of just yet, but they seem to be trying to make a big splash, as every new company would. A major difference seems to be that they have actually been around, or in the making since the early 2000’s, a little like ourselves. They have stated openly on their website that members of staff have directly, or indirectly, worked for brands such as Thermalright, Prolimatech and Phanteks.
So this could be a case of trying to give the mainstream a bloody nose, having worked with some of the big names and been unsatisfied? Well maybe, they have stated that on their website too, their initial offerings will be the judge of that, and usually are a statement of intent for any new company. Today’s review is for the Cryorig R1 Ultimate, the flagship and what Cryorig are stating as “nothing else but pure cooling performance”.
