CRYORIG H5 Universal CPU Cooler Review

Not that long ago CRYORIG sent us their flagship R1 Ultimate CPU cooler, which not only impressed us, but had a lot of cool technologies and other things we had never saw on a CPU cooler before. Now we are moving on to their H5 Universal CPU cooler, which as the name suggest is a cooler that will give you 100% memory clearance on mainstream sockets. While the R1 Ultimate was a dual-tower cooler, the H5 Universal has a single tower, but still retains much of the surface area of the R1 with its large fin design. The cooler itself features CRYORIG’s Hive Fin structure design, Jet Fin Acceleration System, Heatpipe Convex-Align System, and XT140 140mm cooling fan. Will this cooler be able to live up to the performance of the R1 Ultimate? Let’s get it in our system and find out!

Special thanks to CRYORIG for providing us with the H5 Universal CPU Cooler to review.


As I said in our review of the R1 Ultimate, CYRORIG has great retail packaging. The front of the box has a photo of the cooler and lets us know it is the H5.

Opening the box up it tells you how you can register your cooler for an extended 3-year warranty, which is quite good for a CPU cooler.
