Test System Setup
To see our testing methodology, and to find out what goes into making our charts, please refer to our CPU Cooler Testing and Methodology article for that information.
While the fan does offer decent specifications, we did not expect the 50.75 degree average we found in our stock testing. Considering this result is less than five degrees out of the top, and accomplished with a 13mm thick fan, Cryorig certainly proves the merits of their design.
Once we applied the overclock, we found that the H5 universal can handle its business. One degree more, and you will find the H5 in a mix of expensive air coolers and equally priced AIOs. Considering all things about this cooler, we find that Cryorig and their out-of-the-box ideas are worthy of our attention, and could be a whole new way of looking at tower coolers.
Noise Level Results
With voltage limited, we found the 140mm fan delivered only 29 dB of noise at a foot from the cooler. With 7.5V applied through the controller, we were seeing speeds of 1125 RPM. With PWM in control of this cooler, idle time will produce much less noise than our charts show.
While the specs show this fan should top out at 1300 RPM, ours topped out at 1437 RPM, which is at the top of the plus or minus range, but still within specifications. At this point, we got the meter back out and found the fan producing 53 dB with 12V supplied to them.
