Cryorig H5 Ultimate CPU Cooler Review

Admin Cooling 1241


We reviewed the Cryorig R1 Ultimate CPU Cooler last month and really liked it. In fact, we gave it a Recommended award and 4.5 out of 5. It’s Cryorig’s flagship cooler, so it should have been good, and it is. Now we have a look at the Cryorig H5 Ultimate CPU Cooler, a slightly different type of cooler to the R1 but still boasting rich features such as Hive Fin, a Jet Fin and turbulence reduction system that we are assuming will help a lot!

But seriously, if you want to be impressed by the stack of design features the H5 carries, have a look at their H5 micro-site. In the meantime, what do we think? If it lives up to the hype, it should be a truly amazing cooler. The supporting micro-site also has some superb content, so check it out. On with the show.

The Cryorig H5 Ultimate comes well packed and thoughtfully protected. A little more premium than the R1, but not my much.  You get a bundle of accessories including thermal paste and a nice black anodised screwdriver.

The H5 uses the same XF140 as the Cryorig R1 Ultimate CPU Cooler which is not a bad thing. The H5 shares many features with the R1, which again, is no bad thing. With a lower sized, TDP and heat pipe count, you are getting the same level of quality from the H5, but with a lower cost and scope than the R1.

It is not hard to recommend the Cryorig H5 Ultimate, though it has its drawbacks. For features, looks and support, it's without doubt one of the best coolers out there. Cryorig are making a name for themselves, and their branding and presence needs to be acknowledged as premium, the H5 adds to that standing.
