Amazing easy to install low profile cooler for cheap price.

Looks cool, getting between 5-15C cooler temps than the cheap zalman got me

I chose this cooler because its small and looks awesome.

Its quieter than the stock i5-6500 cooler and dropped my load max temps from ~67 degrees to ~59 degrees with the average load temps dropping from about ~66 to ~53

For the price I'd say you could get a better performing cooler but it probably won't look as good.

It's a good entry-level CPU cooler, but the wires beneath the heatsink kept brushing up against the fan whilst turning, which caused an annoying "buzz". Despite being able to fix that, the cooler is still quite, but other than that, it does its job well.

Short and easy to install. Because the fins face one axis of a case, you may consider what orientation you'll install it in (to face system exhaust fans - I didn't do this). It likely doesn't matter. Temps at idle and playing games are good. Mainly seeing temps in the upper 20Cs for idle and 40-55C while gaming. Fan is quiet.

Great cooler for the price I paid(£15.99 from ebuyer.com)

Quiet operation but keeps temps relatively low at idle and during load.

Easiest instillation of an aftermarket air cooler I've done. After opening the box I felt like I spent more than $30 on a cooler. It comes with a nice little tool for tightening the nuts on the backplate. The included thermal paste tube is huge compared to what you get with cooler master coolers.

This thing is virtually silent and does a great job of cooling my CPU. Definite improvement over the stock Intel cooler. Very happy with this product so far. I will definitely consider Cryorig in future builds I do for my CPU cooling needs.

This is a nice little CPU cooler. It's compact and won't block anything on your board, looks great, installs in about 1-2 minutes, and comes with tools and more than enough thermal paste for multiple uses. It fulfills Cryorig's claim of being ~25% cooler than the stock heatsink, while being quieter too in my highly unscientific experience.

I primarily bought this as a quieter and more effective replacement for the OEM Intel heat sink, rather than to chill a power-hungry overclocked CPU. The C7 is simply not as powerful as something like the ubiquitous CM Hyper 212, but for a low profile heat pipe cooler in the $40 price range it works great.

Runs quiet and cool. Mounts okay and doesn't interfere with anything on the motherboard. Good stock replacement if the price is right.

from completed build Shadowbox- the mITX SG13 build

This is my third Cryorig product, and it's just as good as the others. Super quiet, with great heat dissipation, despite its diminutive size. I didn't go for an AIO, as they're too loud for my taste, so the C7 was perfect.
