CPU cooling system CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE: review and testing

Officially the company CRYORIG was born in 2013, although its life journey began a little earlier in 2000. During this time it received the necessary experience, which was used to develop the range of CPU coolers. At the moment it consists of six solutions created for different purposes and with different design: from the low-profile cooler for compact systems Mini-ITX up to high-performance Twin-Tower solutions.

CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE

We want to introduce you to the "golden middle" of range CRYORIG - cooling system CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE, which has a number of distinctive features. In this review we will try to figure out how these differences affect the efficiency of the cooler, and its real capabilities when paired with the powerful overclocked processors.

Package and content

CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE

Package of CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE bears the most interesting and useful information about this cooler. Thus, the front side comprises a name, an appearance and describes market positioning. According to the manufacturer, the new product was originally designed as a balanced solution that provides high performance at very low noise levels. To improve the cooling there is a proprietary structure of the heatsink Hive Fin and low-speed 140mm fan CRYORIG XF140.

Also useful information is placed on one of the sides of the box. Here are some features of novelty:

  • Extreme Efficiency Fine Tuning Cooling Capacity - tested cooler features high cooling efficiency with flexible adjustment. It is promoted by a technology Hive Fin, which reduces the turbulence of the air flow and rectify it, and the proprietary development Jet Fin Acceleration System, which provides rapid removal of warm air from the radiator due to the difference in the size of the holes to capture and output stream.
  • Balanced Noise to Performance Keeping Your System Cool and Quiet - application of fan CRYORIG XF140 provides the perfect balance of low noise and efficiency.
  • 5 Step Easy Installation Get Started in 5 Minutes - MultiSeg fastening system makes it easy and quick to install the cooler on any of the supported platforms.

After opening the top cover of the box you can learn about the possibilities to register a new product on the manufacturer's website for an extended 3-year warranty.

Inside the box cooler CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE is placed in a carton damper that well protects it during transportation. And almost all components are carefully laid out on the packages, which will allow the inexperienced user to easily understand their purpose. The complete list of components looks quite impressive:

  • reinforcement plate for AMD and Intel;
  • metal fasteners for different platforms;
  • square pad;
  • set of racks, screws and nuts;
  • two brackets for mounting an additional fan;
  • four anti-vibration pads for the propeller;
  • screwdriver;
  • thermo compound CRYORIG CP9 in the syringe;
  • installation guide in four languages (English, German, Polish and Japanese);
  • registration card for the cooler.

Without a doubt the owners of new item will delight due to rich equipment. Note that many of the components are painted black, which will allow them more naturally combined with the cooler. We also liked the presence of an additional set of brackets and mounting pads for a second fan, which makes it easy to increase performance of cooler, just after purchasing a second suitable propeller.

Design and structure  

CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATECRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE

Radiator of cooler CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE has a tower arrangement. When comparing from different angles you can easily notice difference in the form of plates from different sides of the radiator that is a consequence of the application of technology Jet Fin Acceleration System. The radiator has dimensions of 160 x 143 x 85,5 mm. Therefore, before buying new item, make sure that your body will be able to accommodate a cooler with height of 160 - 168.3 mm (this option depends on the placement of the fan).

Despite the bigger height the radiator is based on four copper heat pipes with 6 mm diameter which have 38 aluminum plates of 0.4 mm thickness. In the back part where the ribs have a classic shape, the distance between them is 2.8 mm.

CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE

The shape and placement of the plates in front resembles a honeycomb, so this proprietary technology was named Hive Fin. Recall, its use reduces air turbulence and to straighten the air flow to move along the entire length of the radiator.

To prevent oxidation the heat pipes are coated with nickel. The efficiency of heat transfer from the base increases the solder at the point of contact.

CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE

The base has a size of 42 x 38 mm and is made of nickel-plated copper. It is characterized by high-quality polishing.

To make the cooler CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE more holistic type, as well as harmony with applicable fan and other components, the manufacturer took care of the use of black plastic lining at the top and bottom of the radiator. These elements can be easily removed and installed in its place.

Complete fan is presented by branded model CRYORIG XF140. It has frame form, made in a gray color, which together with other decorative elements will not allow it to mix with any other solution.

CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE

On the back the manufacturer has specified power supply of fan (12 V), but the power consumption remains unknown. But more important for the average user are blade speed indicators (700 ± 10 to 1300% rpm) and the amount of generated airflow (up to 129.2 m3/h). In general, the last value should be sufficient to ensure good heat dissipation efficiency, which is very nice considering the low operating speed and, consequently, low background noise (up to 23 dB).

CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE

To improve the anti-vibration properties the edges of the fan have the appropriate absorbent pads. Power supply and adjustable speed of the blades is realized via a 4-pin cable 30 cm long, hidden in a cloth braid.

CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE

The manufacturer specified supported arrows to the sidewall showing the direction of rotation of the blades and the moving air stream.

Fan mounting is realized by means of metal staples. The bundled set contains a pair of additional data elements, which allows you to easily carry out the modernization of the cooling system.

Installation  

Installation of the cooler CRYORIG H5 ULTIMATE to different platforms is detailed in the complete instruction. Even inexperienced users should not have any problems. Note that the manufacturer provides the ability to download PDF-version of this guide from the official site. And to check the compatibility of the cooler with the specific motherboard and nearby components you can download, print and glue paper form (look at the bottom of the page, and there are options for the five types of platforms).

Don’t forget to pre-install the processor and apply thermal interface. The screws are spring at the base. Quickly and easily perform this procedure is possible due to complete screwdriver or any other cruciform, with a shank of at least 15 cm.

Mounted cooler conventional memory modules height of 30 - 35 mm without in any DIMM-slot (depending on the location of the fan). Also new product is at a sufficient distance from the massive radiator of the power subsystem processor.

When it comes to the high radiator modules, they can be installed in any slot except the first. That is, you can easily use two overclocker modules in dual channel mode (2nd and 4th slots), but set all four marker strips can only be in the case of mounting a fan from the back side of the radiator.
