Overall Score 4  


Installation is the same as most other Cryorig CPU coolers on the X99 chipset. It was very simple and trouble free. Cryorig are calling this their MultiSeg Quick Mount System, and it works well. For more information on this coolers fitment, check out the Cryorig tester.

Test Setup

We tested the Cryorig H5 Universal using our standard i7 LGA2011-v3 setup. We test two configurations, stock at 3.3Ghz/3.6Ghz with Turbo and overclocked at 4.4Ghz. We keep the CPU Turbo setting enabled for both stock and overclocked configurations, however this would only be in effect with the stock test due to the way we overclocked the CPU using the multiplier.

The Intel i7 LGA2011-v3 and i7-5820K setup is a high end setup that will stress the CPU cooler under stock and overclocked load conditions. We also record idle temperature and sound performance.

AIDA64’s CPUID showing 3.3Ghz stock and 3.6Ghz Turbo clocks. We used the i7-5820K and some Ballistix Sport LT 16GB Red DDR4 2666Mhz Memory. This is our standardised enthusiasts test rig, with all tests controlled using the same conditions to ensure compatible results.

We use a standardized set of software for both load test and temperature capture;

We ran the AIDA64 Engineer stability test in 30 minute batches and recorded the results. We used the Core Max result as there is typically a variance across the cores of a couple of degrees. We only select the cache, FPU and CPU tests, so no other component would generate impacting heat during the tests. We always “run in” our CPU cooler installations, essential to maximizing the performance of the cooler before testing begins.
