I wanted the Ultimate for the color mostly but I just discovered Customod's thumb.gif
A black rattle-can works too. wink.gif

The problem being that the joke is on the consumer....

I agree, R1 Universal is simply more 'universal'. thumb.gif
R1 Ultimate and R1 Universal perform the same with same fans, so getting Universal and a 2nd XF140 while costing a little more gives way more flexibility. To me coolers are a long term investment, so fitting on most any platform I might have is a definite advantage.
.
Have you tried removing the rear exhaust fan? Even better, cut the rear exhaust vent out as big as possible and maybe build a shroud from cooler to back of case.

I'll try making an air duct from cooler to the back of the case. . . I din't know that could be done, I'll add it to the list of case mods I've yet to do.

I do ducts and dividers quite often. Divider between top of GPU and CPU to keep GPU heated exhaust air away form CPU cooler, divider between GPU fans and side of case to keep keep heated exhaust from circling back into intakes, duct from case intakes to GPU fans. All to keep cool and heated air separated and / or lower noise. wink.gif

So I managed it somehow... Though what it has lost in elegance with the BQ fans, it kind of looks a bit more badass now.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Had to cut the a piece of the fan clip's end, so it does not hit the blade.

Now a single XF140 at lowest possible RPM gave me 57C at the warmest core at a 20C room with dual intake, dual top exhaust and single rear exhaust be quiet! fans at 500 rpm. Without the top exhausts that I used to clip to the R1 ultimate - the XF140 was scoring 59.

Now the dual 120mm Silent Wings2 at 800 RPM deliver 64C at the warmest core at 21C ambient. Now put 1-2 degrees due to my sloppy paste application this time and maybe the tiny dust film and there you have it. Dual 120 mm Silent Wings delivering 3 C less performance at the fraction of the noise of the XF140. And the heatsink does not vibrate anymore.

The noise is now so significantly lower, that I can hear a faint resonance. I can't identify from where it comes exactly. I will wait till 2-3 AM when things are all quiet and try and check each component and each fan.

Just for extra information - I had a check of the ambient noise in the room - 19 db (which is the lowest threshold of the device i was given) in the night. So I guess it is even lower.

But I guess I will be searching for a singe 140mm fan replacement for the XF. The dual 120mm Silent Wings2 do not appear to be that effective, since they don't cool off the two most outer heat pipes very well.

Hello everyone!

I have just tried testing my H5 Universal with the standard slim fan, a Noctua Redux 1500 140mm and a Noctua Industrial 2000rpm 140mm. To my surprise, the slim Cryorig fan was only a couple of degrees hotter than the Noctuas. What was also weird is that the two Noctua had the same cooling power, despite the fact that one has higher rpms and static pressure.

However, both the Cryorig and the Noctua industrial had a weird buzzing at lower speeds, definitely more noticeable on the Noctua. Overall, they are all great, but I will definitely keep my Noctua redux as it is so quiet and powerful. Not to mention that the grey colour goes perfectly with the H5 Universal.

Thanks! thumb.gif

Always nice to know these sort of things.

Were you able to monitor cooler intake air temperature? Just curious if it changed. It often does with different cooler fan that move differnt amounts of air. This is what I use to monitor cooler intake air temp.

@doyll unfortunately I did not monitor intake air temperature, but the only fan working in the case when I tested them was the cpu fan.

Wow! .. Just .. Wow!
No case fans at all?
No GPU cooler fans either?

What is your system?

@doyll,

I just found a place that supplies TY-147As and will ship them for a reasonable price. Can you share benches of comparison between the Cryorig fans and the TYs on the R1 Ultimate, or should I PM you for those. Any help is much appreciated.
