Having looked at the front and inside of Cryorig boxes we thought we'd show you how neatly laid out things are around the back. As with the H5 Universal you get all the fixings you'll ever need.
The H5 Ultimate is essentially the same cooler as the H5 Universal, the only differences being the full depth 140mm fan, which comes in a Greyish Olive drab colour, and has black blades.
The H5 Ultimate also has a Black top and bottom shroud as opposed to the Universal's white one. In all other respects the units are the same.
Once fitted into the case we can see that the Ultimate does encroach on the RAM area, especially when you consider that the Corsair memory below is in the second and forth slots. Cryorig say that you can use the Ultimate with RAM of between 30-35mm but this sill require that the fan be moved up a bit on the fin stack which may well ruin the aesthetic. As the different thickness front fan is the only thing that separates the Universal from the Ultimate, you might expect that there performance would be quite similar and you'd be right, as there's only a 1.5 degree difference between them, which to us means that unless you really need that extra 1.5 degree or you prefer the white of the Universal then the ultimate is the one to go for.
