CRYORIG H5A Universal Mid Tower Cooler For AMD/Intel CPU's

5 out of 5 eggs It's so Cool! 12/27/2016

This review is from: CRYORIG H5A Universal Mid Tower Cooler For AMD/Intel CPU's

Pros: Keeps my Intel 7i 6700k 4.0gh, overclocked to a moderate 4.5gh running cool to the touch at 30c idle (room is 28c) and 35c after playing Diablo 3 for 2 hours.

I pushed to 4.6gh overclock but temperature started to get up in the 50c range

Giant cooler - very tall, but no interference with Memory chips on my ASRock Z710+ Extreme MoBo.

Cons: Did I mention Giant?
This would not fit in my old case (which was a great reason to upgrade the old case to a beautiful Thermaltake Core P5 open air work of art)

Other Thoughts: Use the Origami tool (Compatibility Tester) on the Cryorig site to test fit before buying.
I used Arctic Silver 5 paste, but in retrospect, I would have just used the paste they sent with the cooler.

Pros: After running this box for 6 months on Windows 2008 R2 X64 I am still very pleased with it.

Draws between 15 and 20 watts even with an external 1TB USB 2.0 drive attached and my Serviio media server streaming to 2 devices. $15/year in power, so no guilt leaving it running 24/7

Since my TVs can stream from a DLNA server, I don't care that the video will not do full HDMI. I just run it headless and stream over the wire.

Single wire for power and I can put it anywhere in the house (or even take it with me when I travel or go to friends). Very tidy.

Gets warm, not hot, even with the fanless box.

Cons: Linux is non-trivial on this box due to Intel's lack of support for Video drivers on the Intel Atom in general.

Other Thoughts: Windows 2008 R2 X64 were the only Windows drivers that would work for a server class OS, so go X64 even though it has max 6GB of RAM just for the driver support.

I also run an FTP server, Squid Proxy and a BigFix server on this little box without any real performance complaints.
