Results and general impression …
Now we come to the total result of the Cryorig H5 Ultimate CPU cooler.
The manufacturer Cryorig has tried to differentiate themselves from the competition. Partially this was successful. Clever details, an innovative honeycomb design and a solid cooling performance speaks for the H5 Ultimate.
Unfortunately, the noise of the fan as well as the pretty cumbersome assembly tarnishes the otherwise positive overall picture. But to state a quote: “There’s always room for improvement”. This should not be difficult for Cryorig, and should provide us with some innovative and high-performance coolers.
Hint: In the interactive Fit for Fan guide you can virtually check each cooler on different motherboards, the Cryorig H5 Ultimate will be added with the next update as well.
* A direct comparison to our previously tested coolers is not possible, because the test system has changed fundamentally in the meantime. Nevertheless our CPU cooler chart* is here again with a comprehensive CPU cooler comparison.
