3. Choose the orientation of heatsink and tighten the screw into the X-bar.


4. All done and ready to go!


Totally no clearance issue with high profile RAM.

Cryorig H5 Universal :

2. Tighten the bolts into the screw pillars. 


3. Put on the mounting bracket. Mounting bracket can be adjust for 2 different orientations.

Again, no clearance issue with any high profile RAM. Take note that this is slim fan with 13mm thickness. If using a normal 25mm thickness fan it may block the RAM slot. 

Test Results : 

We made a simple benchmark for both coolers and results are as below. The stress test software we used is Prime95 version 28.5. The ambient temperature is around 28-29°C under non-aircon room. Here’s the list of hardware we used to benchmarking. 

CPU : Intel i5-4690k
Motherboard : ASUS Maximus VII Hero LGA1150
RAM : GSkill Trident-X 4GB x 2 DDR3 2400Mhz
Storage : Samsung Evo 120GB SSD
PSU : Seasonic X-750 Modular
Chassis : NZXT Phantom 240 (2x Stock Fans included and running at full speed during test)
Thermal paste : CP9 Cryo-Paste 

Stock Clock/Voltage





OC 4.5Ghz @ 1.16v Vcore @ LLC level 2





Conclusion : 
Based on the result above, H5 Universal performs slightly better than H7 due to 8 heatpipes vs 6 heatpipes and bigger heatsink. However, the slim fan limited the performance of the H5 Universal, it may dissipates heat more efficient if a higher CFM fan was used. Cryorig H7 able to tamed down i5-4690k with only 1 fan which is quite impressive. 

In a nut shell, both coolers are great if you are going upgrade from Intel/AMD stock cooler. The best part about Cryorig is that they provided a QR code in manual and you can just scan and it will leads you to the installation video guide. They are very much concerned about compatibility of hardware. They came out with a very brilliant idea, the Cryorig Origami Compatibility Tester. Just print it out, cut it and fold it. PDF files can be found on their official product link.
