Cryorig H5

H5 is a single tower CPU cooler, made from aluminium and nickel plated copper with dimension of L98 mm x W143 mm x H160 mm for the heatsink without fan installed. It weighs 539 g without the fan and 628 g when the fan is installed. The heatsink is accomplished with four 6mm heatpipes and aluminium fin stack with 0.4mm thickness, all 38 of them. Of course, the fins are made with the patented Cryorig Hive Fin design structure and Jet Fin Acceleration for improved cooling performance and strength. With the Jet Fin Acceleration the air, coming from the fan travels a lot faster than in a normal fin stack that we’re used to see. The Hive Fin honeycomb design not only makes the cooler look amazingly good, but also allows for much more surface area to be present, without the cooler being large. H5 has 90% of the cooling area compared to the R1 series  from Cryorig.

Heatpipe Convex-Align allow Cryorig to install more heatpipes in the targeted area, again without sacrificing dimensions.

H5 is cooled by a one 140mm XT140 Cryorig slim fan (L140 mm x W140 mm x H13 mm) operating at 700 ~ 1300 RPM range and delivering 65 CFM of airflow. Noise level is somewhere around 20 ~ 24 dBA due to the High Precision Low Noise (HPLN™) bearing and rubber vibration absorbers.
