Thermalright HR-01-775 Passive Cooler

Once again, Thermalright has stepped up
to take that challenge and introduced the HR-01-775*. HR-01-775 is a passive
tower cooler that utilizes the fan that is already installed in your computer.
It works side by side with the fan duct system developed exclusively by
Thermalright. Basically, the fan duct connects the HR-01 to the 120mm outtake
fan, thus making the heatsink serve as a portal to the wind tunnel that leads to
the outside environment of the computer, effectively pulling out hot air and
cooling the HR-01 (designed with its proprietary through holes for efficient
ventilation) at the same time. Lab results have shown that HR-01 with the fan
duct works just as efficiently and as effectively as having a 120mm heatsink fan
installed to the HR-01.

Due to higher processor frequency enabling computers to run even more
intensive business, multimedia, and gaming applications, the LGA775 processor
has been known to generate more heat than any other processors in the CPU
market. As any PC enthusiasts would know, stability and heat control go
hand-in-hand when it comes to building a good quality PC. Intel made a valiant
effort in making a semi-efficient heatsink for the LGA775 processor, but lets
face it…it just does not cut it! In response to more heat generated by the
CPU, the fan RPM turns up higher and higher which translates into louder and
louder noise. Can your ears bare the noise?

Thats where third-party heatsink designer/maker comes in. The challenge was to
find better solutions in cooling the scorcher in the LGA775 core, plus with
minimal noise from the CPU cooling fan. Once again, Thermalright has stepped up
to take that challenge and introduced the HR-01-775*. HR-01-775 is a passive
tower cooler that utilizes the fan that is already installed in your computer.
