Default Cryorig Fan Bearings

Does anyone have any info, photos, etc on Cryorigs fans; either those they sell retail or those included with coolers.

Beyond some stupid marketing terms and their "High Precision Low Noise" bearing meaning nothing, they don't have any information available to the public in this regard.

So far I haven't seen a review yet that takes the fan apart or even discuses the bearing at all. I imagine they are just some variety of sleeve variant (Long Life, Rifle, etc) but I want to confirm it before I say anything.

If you could organze a 140mm fan with 120mm mountings, I'd take mine apart...

Besides that: The fan/bearing seems rather shitty to me, without taking it apart.
Because there is some kind of rattling when the heatsink is mounted with the fan blowing up (because Silverstone RV-01 )

Got myself a Cryorig R1 Universal by the way.
Long story short:
I won't reccomend it, it was a waste of money.

Get an Alpenföhn Olymp, Noctua NH-D15 or even the be quiet Dark Rock Pro.
The Cyorig R1 isn't really worth it. Mostly because the fans don't seem that great at all...

I'm not interested in getting a new cooler; I'm just continuing my hobby of keeping up to date with the coolers and their included fans.

I might end up getting the Cryorig H7 the next time it is on sale though. Mostly to replace my old Xigmatek S1283; between the fan mounting method and the non-plated pipes, that cooler h as seen better days. This would also give me a look at their fans.

Truth be told though, I would still rather not spend the money at the moment and just have the info available at hand.

Well, you have my oppinion.
I have this one.
The smaller fan seems to be OK.

The thicker one has the ratteling issue when moutend lying, standing up it seems to be OKish...

So I'd say we're talking about one of the normal sleeve bearing fans...

What about Phanteks "Updraft Floating Balance" Bearing? http://www.frostytech.com/articlevie...id=2670&page=1 This page mentions it's a Sleeve Bearing...

Calling it a sleeve is disingenuous, but not far off from the truth.

While it's not identical; the bearing is close in design to this one; Phanteks fans are not great in terms of bearing but I will say their PWM IC choice is good, they have generally well balanced fans, and the build materials are also solid across the board.

With all of that said, I would probably treat their bearings the same as a Rifle Bearing; acceptable but not great.

Thanks. It's because the Phanteks TC12DX is now cheap in Spain (offer ending soon) https://www.pccomponentes.com/phante...u-cooler-negro with great performance but for 50€ there are probably better alternatives.

Honestly not a bad option in my opinion.

I don't mind their fans and for most CPU orientations you shouldn't experience any issues at all. I don't know about the EU warranty but the US warranty with Phanteks is strong so that's worth considering.

So, the HPLN bearing of Cryorig it's another silly sleeve bearing variant?

But Noctua SSO what type of bearing is? more like a maglev like Sunon or more like a ball bearing?

Noctua's SSO is basically another sleeve variant, the SS02 bearing is more in line with an FDB.
