    Thermalright HR-01 Review

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    If you're into overclocking, you know how important it is to get the right cooler to improve your processor's performance. Thermalright has an excellent reputation. Today we're going to put Thermalright's HR-01 through its paces.


    Air-cooling a processor during overclocking sounds like a bad idea to most users nowadays; with dual core processors being the choice of enthusiasts these days, there is a significant dependence on cooling for reaching breathtaking speeds and maintaining stability. Deciding which cooler to purchase is a monumental task. Is it best to get the biggest cooler and the highest-powered fan? Or is there something out there which has the potential to be the solution to all of our problems?

    Thermalright has been producing heat sinks for several years now, and have quickly earned an amazing reputation with the enthusiasts for maintaining excellent performance as well as attention to quality. I remember when I first had my hands on the SK-7 oh so long ago. I was amazed at the quality of the cooler, it was like nothing I had seen before. And it performed better than just about any cooler I had ever used at that time.

    Today we're taking a look at the Thermalright HR-01 heat sink. The High Rise resembles the skyscrapers of any major city, probably more so than any other tower heat sink out there. It incorporates new features to help aid the heat transfer from the heat sink to the surrounding air. This should allow the HR-01 to run passively, although Thermalright ships the heat sink with a fan duct which dramatically increases the performance of the cooler -- it pulls the exhausted air outside of the system, which provides plenty of benefits that I'll explain later on. Let's start checking this thing out.
