Test setup and results …
For the practical test, we have mounted the Cryorig H7 / H7 Quad Lumi on our new AM4 test system, which consists of the following components:
ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4
AMD A8-9600 @ 3.8 GHz with 1.4 volt
Cooler Master Testbench v1.0
For measurement, the following tools were used: Prime95 and SpeedFan
Thermal compound: Cryorig CP7 (included)
The ambient temperature during the test was about 21°C.
The Cryorig H7 / H7 Quad Lumi also competes against the AMD Boxed cooler. If you want, you can also check out our recently published reviews of the Arctic Freezer 12, of the Cooler Master MA410 and the Cooler Master MA610, which were tested under the same conditions and compare the results.
We then used the CPU for 30 minutes with Prime95 and recorded the temperatures.
Both coolers deliver a similarly good performance as the comparable Cooler Master MA410P. The Cryorig H7 Quad Lumi is only slightly better than the Cryorig H7 despite 4 instead of 3 heatpipes.
The fan volume is measured with a dB meter from 100cm distance. In addition, we determine the respective rotational speed.

As the technical data already suggest, the measurement results are very close to each other.
The fans make a good impression. Up to 40% are both excellent for silent settings, the sweatspot between cooling performance and volume is 60% for the Cryorig H7, while the Cryorig H7 Quad Lumi can go up to 80%. The respective higher speeds increase clearly the volume, but not to the same extent in the cooling performance. The fan noise is free of disorders.
To be able to estimate the fan noise, there is also a video of the Cryorig H7 …
