The CRYORIG H5 is referred to as Universal as it supports LGA sockets going back to 775 and all AM2/3 or FM2 AMD sockets, significantly more breadth that most coolers on the market. At 110.9x143x168.3mm (4.4×5.6×6.6") it may not fit in every case and the 920g with the fan installed is going to need a sturdy board to support it. [H]ard|OCP tested out the effectiveness of the Hive Fin and Jet Fin features in their review. As it turns out the cooler is not the most effective choice but it is one of the quietest and for the price it is recommended for users that won't be heavily overclocking their CPU.
"The CRYORIG H5 UNIVERSAL heatsink claims to have a Hive Fin Design for Extreme Performance Efficiency and is compatible with a huge number of older and modern AMD and Intel processors. Along with the Hive Fins, we get Jet Fin Acceleration and Turbulence Reduction. Let's however see just how well it cools your CPU."
