Overall Score 4.1  

We always draw the conclusion when sound performance is constantly uniform, it’s usually at the expense of heat performance, and points to a little fan set up work in the BIOS, and you will have better thermal performance from your cooler.

Conclusion

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.

What are the drawbacks then? The one fan configuration as standard will limit some, though with a little tweaking in the BIOS, you will get a very good performer at the expense of sound performance. So you may have a compromise on your hands or you buy a second fan, but that’s about all that should put you off. It’s a very capable performer, topping out results charts on several occasions, and charming us all the way.
