Cryorig H5 Universal: Review

We took one of the latest budget friendly Cryorig H5 Universal cooler and put it to the test.  Paired with our Intel i7-6700k at an overclock of 4.6GHz, how well can this single fan cooler keep up?

It's got style, but can it cool?  The new Cryorig H5 Universal fits most Intel and AMD CPU sockets made in the past 11 years and provides a unique style with excellent build quality.  We will test this against our i7-6700k overclocked to see how well it actually cools!
