CRYORIG H5 Ultimate Mid Tower Cooler for AMD/Intel CPU's

5 out of 5 eggs Great Cooler! 09/14/2015

This review is from: CRYORIG H5 Ultimate Mid Tower Cooler for AMD/Intel CPU's

Pros: Cooling capability, ease of installation, quality construction

Cons: The only possible con would be size, but it fit in my Fractal case with no problem. I have low-profile DRAM and it was not a problem. How's that for a con?

Other Thoughts: The mounting method was very easy for my AMD FX processor. I ordered an extra CryoRig fan and set the cooler up push-pill. I am running my FX-8350 at 4.5 GHz with historically low temperatures. This replaces a AIO water cooling unit which it outperforms - and much more quietly.

5 out of 5 eggs Remarkable performance 08/27/2015

This review is from: CRYORIG H5 Ultimate Mid Tower Cooler for AMD/Intel CPU's

Pros: Fits in my Fractal Define R4 case with ASUS M5A99FX MB.
It outperforms the liquid cooler it replaced.
The Newegg/CryoStore shipping was amazingly fast.

Cons: Some minor difficulty starting the screws into the mounting base, but a flashlight and mirror did the trick.

Other Thoughts: The temperatures reported from the on-chip sensors were roughly half of those observed with the water cooler this replaced. AMD doesn't report real temperatures, but they must be proportional. The CryoRig is an amazing performer. And I don't have to worry about leaks!

I added an additional CryoRig fan for push-pull which might have enhanced the performance.

The fans didn't interfere with the two 8GB G.Skill Sniper memory sticks since the first stick is in position #2. I think if I had four memory sticks I could have raised the push fan a small amount to accommodate it. The Sniper memory is low profile so the fan would only have to be raised two or three millimeters.

Pros: It meets advertised specifications. It has leading edge frequency and voltage in operation.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I installed these two 8GB sticks in my Asus M5A99FX motherboard for use with an AMD FX-8150. In the Ai Tweaker menu, I selected the Ai Overclock Tuner to be D.O.C.P. and chose Profile #1. It offers profiles 0 and 1 and both seemed to work fine. This selection chooses the DRAM frequency, the timings and the DRAM voltage. With the CPU settings default, it booted up fine at 1866 MHz with the advertised timings and voltage (1.50V). The command rate was 2T for both profiles although one of the XMP SPDs showed one with 1T. I didn't force the issue for fear of losing booting ability.

The default CPU frequency was 3.6 GHz and is fast enough, but simply increasing the CPU multiplier to 20.5 gave me a stable computer running at 4.1 GHz. An OC wizard (person) could probably adjust the CPU voltages and get higher multiples, but I'm happy. Disabling the CPU and PCIe spread spectrum maybe helped the stability. That's what I read anyway.

The Sniper memory sticks have quite low heat spreaders and didn't come close to interfering with my Zalman CPU cooler. I think they're as low profile as the ARES memory sticks. I ran the Sniper memory through Memtest86+ (4.20) and it was error free overnight. It takes about two hours per pass.

Good memory.
