Still evaluating this one, but initially, it gives quite adequate performance for a moderately overclocked I7-5820K. It is extremely easy to mount, and the fan is quiet. Doesn't cover the RAM on either side. Doesn't interfere with PCI-e slot 1. Fits in my Antec P100 case with lots of clearance. Is not overly heavy, so I have no concern about stress on the motherboard or socket.
The Cryorig H5 is easy to install and keeps my CPU running cool. It seems to be reasonably priced for it's performance.
This cooler is incredible!! I love the look of it and the performance is a good step above the hyper 212 evo even though i still installed it backwords.
Does its job well
Con: Somewhat hard to install.
I would've bought the H5 Ultimate, however my ram ended up being quite large so it was necessary. The bottom of the fan is right up against the ram so it was the right decision. The cooler itself performs incredibly well, is quiet and was pretty easy to install. Not to mention how good it looks.
Very tall but i love how they kept ram clearance in mind
Had difficulty at the start with two of the four back plate screws not fitting through the motherboard. But after grinding them down it was a pretty smooth install.
Temperatures are good. It looks stunning as well. For the current price - happy days.
Getting 25-30 degrees idle @ 4.6 GHz and 69-73 degrees whilst under 100% load.
Wasn't sure how I was going to enjoy the honeycomb cooling solution these guys came up with, but to my surprise, I found that this cooler and I'm sure others like it, cool better and are easier to clean and maintenance than any other cooler I've ever seen.
Good on these guys and they can expect my business in the future for sure.
Cools my CPU pretty darn well and looks clean. Highest temp it went was 81C under a rough stress test I performed after it OC'd. Under loads during my game it usually peaks at 77C and averages/idles around 32C. Ambient temp at around 21C. Now, I am new to building PC's but these temps seem good to me (please correct me if I am wrong).
Does a good job at cooling a 6700K, haven't overclocked on it yet as my it's a friends computer and he doesn't need to overclock yet.
Has a small bit of fan ticking, but nothing alarming.
