Cryorig is about to launch a new tower CPU cooler on the market, the H5. At a first look it might seems that the H5 is just like any other cooler, but it's not: it features an innovative honeycomb design for the heatsink, instead of the classic fins.
Cryorig worked on this particular honeycomb design for the H5, because it's supposed to offer better airflow and heat transmission, hence higher cooling performances.
The cooler measures 160x143x98mm with the fan mounted on, which is an XT140 only 13mm thick. The final weight is 628g. This fan operates between 700 and 1300RPM, with 20/24dBA and an airflow of 65CFM. Thanks to the heatsink's dimensions, the H5 can be used even with the highest RAM modules. As far as compatibility is concerned, the H5 will be available for both Intel and AMD for many sockets: Intel LGA 2011, 1366, 1150, 1155, 1156 and 775, and AMD FM1, FM2, AM2(+) and AM3(+).
It should hit the market on September with an MSRP of 34€.
