CRYORIG H5 Ultimate Overview
The H5 Ultimate is a very large CPU cooler, not the lagest we’ve seen, but it’s up there. Its official dimensions are L110.9 x W143 x H160 ~ 168.3mm.
At the front of the cooler we have the CRYORIG’s own XF140 140 mm fan. This fan has a high airflow and static pressure at extremely low noise levels. You can see the CRYORIG logo at the center of the fan.
If we take a look at the cooler from the side we can see just how large the single aluminum tower heatsink is. We can also see that the included fan is held into place with fan clips. There is rubber around where the fan clips attach to the fan so there is less vibrational noise. CRYORIG includes an extra set of fan clips if you wanted to install a secondary fan.
At the top of the cooler we have a metal top that is painted black and has the CRYORIG logo on it.
Removing the front fan we can get a better look at the heatsink itself. You will notice the way the heatsink fins are designed that they sort of look like a bee hive. CRYORIG calls this their Hive Fin structure. This design allows for a combination of Jet Fin Acceleration and Turbulence Reduction, as well as strengthening structural strength of the fin stacks.
Moving to the back of the heatsink we can see that structure is not there. The fins are designed to have a narrower exhaust, this compresses the air to move faster while exiting the heatsink, which makes for more efficient cooling.
At the base of the heatsink you will find four 6 mm nickel-plated copper heatpipes. These heatpipes start at the base of the cooler and go up into the heatsink. The heatpipes are aligned in what CRYORIG calls their Heatpipe Convex-Align System, which they say allows each heatpipe to function to their maximum TDP capacity.
Taking a closer look at the base of the cooler there are visible machining marks.
