Thermalright first tower heatsink is upon us, the HR-01 is aimed at silent computing; it doesn’t come with a fan nor does it provide an easy method of attaching one. Some versions of the HR-01 (especially those for S775) are shipped with a plastic fan duct.
It’s not been on the market for long so its price may still drop: ~€50
The unit is shipped in a plain cardboard box, the optional fan duct is shipped separately.Specifications :
Compatibility:AMD: Athlon64/64+ Socket754/940/939
Intel S478 (needs separate retention kit)
Intel S775 (another version altogether - tested on page 6)
Fan included: None and None supported
From TR: Currently there are no adapters or fan wire clips available for fan installation on HR-01. But if you are the type that likes to do a little DIY, here's what you can do
Heatsink Dimensions: L110xW60xH159.5mm
In the Box :
A large sticker
A manual (A4 sheet)
A rather large tube of thermal compound
Mounting clip for use with standard A64 bracket
The HR-01 cools the CPU through the use of 4 U formed heat pipes joined at the base; a large series of thin aluminum fins dissipate the heat.
The base has visible machine markings, the SI-120’s base was smoother
Compared to the SI-120 the design is quite different; it’ll be interesting to see how the unit will perform.
