It's long enough to be close to the rear case fan (longer than Ninja 2, also considering its asymmetry design). Is it too close to the fan that block the hot airs from other parts? :lol:

This seems like the perfect cooler for all those socket 1156 M-ITX motherboards where the socket is close to the pci-e slot.

:shock: 1100g Do they have Scythe Designing these coolers now because they just huge and heavy like all the Scythe coolers. No way I'm hanging 1100g off my motherboard.

Looks very nice. I'm hoping this one will beat the Megahalems below 1000 rpm.

I'm glad its heavier because mass is the most important factor in a fanless heatsink. Fingers crossed as this may also work great at heavier loads with more powerful fans.

It's heavy, almost too heavy, but I can't wait review, based on the size and Thermalright's great performance/size ratio it should easily beat HR-01+ and make possible for passive/semi-passive cooling even overclocked hot processors.

I think a properly secured motherboard can easily handle a couple pounds of tension. The Thermalright bolt-thru kits are pretty secure.

I just know I love my HR-01.

Will this also mount at 90 degrees so that it can sit under a top mounted or PSU fan instead of a rear fan? That could mean it would work excellently in a P180.

Great. The stock coolers have left me traumatised so at least I won't get any flashbacks with this.

Right, that's why even my underwhelming Coolermaster Z-600 is still one of the best in this field. :lol:

HR-01 PLUS: 33 fins.
HR-02: 45 fins.

If the fin thickness and the total fin height is the same, then the spacing is 2.17 mm.

I think they should have stayed at 33 fins.

Looking forward to this one.

Haven't yet found a suitable upgrade to my HR-01 currently running semi-passive (i.e no active fan, but ducted to the rear case fan) on my mildly overclocked i7 920 (@3.6Ghz). But this might be the one.

Not too worried about the weight as the Thermalright mounting is excellent and most enthusiast motherboards (i.e. those designed to be overclocked) are built to handle heavy coolers. Might be an issue for those with budget motherboards though.

It seems they listened to you lol... the pictures on their website show 32 fins!

I've searched the intarweb for release date information and have come up with no answer...

I really want this cooler. I would be nice if it comes out while it's still summertime.

It does look pretty nice. I'd consider picking it up, but I bet it will cost an arm and a leg. Wouldn't be surprised if it was $60-70.

I sent them an email and they answered very quickly. I'm impressed.

The approximate date isn't too bad either...

Hello,

I'm trying to purchase the Thermalright HR-02 shown on your website (http://www.thermalright.com/new_a_page/ ... hr-02.html) and cannot find it at any of the North American stores shown on your "were to buy" page.

Where can I purchase this CPU cooler?

Regards,

Dear Druneau,



Thanks for your mail and sorry for the reply.

The webpage you have seen is for preview purpose, we are working on the mass production now, and hopefully this model will be available in mid July.

Best Regards,

Druneau: Can you pm me the address?

I sent an email to them weeks ago asking how wide the Spitfire is, since the site and the jpeg shows differend sizes, but never got a reply..

Thanks.

Today I saw a local review in Chinese, perhaps you can take a look at some pictures, the details are interesting.

http://www.chiphell.com/portal-view-aid-115-page-6.html

According to the test result, it can beat Prolima Mega with a few degrees and will become the new champion, which is very promising. The only drawback is still that too heavy.

Here's another review of the HR-02 which is hard to read lol

Judging by those reviews, it's cooler than my Q9400 with a Scythe Ninja rev A with a 7v fan right next to the exhaust fan....granted I don't have C1E enabled, but still.

ridiculous.

In that first review posted it looks like if the HR02 is installed it is angling away from the motherboard. Are they now actively trying to not cool the VRM area? It wasn't bad enough that there was airflow PARALLEL to the motherboard, now we need to have it angle away from it?

Otherwise, yeah, it's big and heavy, thus effective. I won't switch over from my HR01 plus but it still looks good. I have no problem with heavy coolers if they're fastened with a solid mechanism like that of Thermalright and not all the bullsh*t Scythe comes up with, hanging heavy coolers off on Intel's pushpin joke or selling really crappy and not thought-out bolt-through kits.

You've to take the result with a grain of salt as it is engineering sample rather than final retail product. Also the final package, accessories, bundle fan, retail pricing still remain to be seen till the launch of HR-02 and will be absolutely different from review sample in the article. That said, I'd believe Thermalright's reputation of performance based on their prime records, so HR-02 should be a potent forerunner in terms of air-cooling.

If it keeps up with the current top dogs, i'd probably switch over to it so I can have access to all my ram slots again.. LOL

In the last link the hr02 is tested on an 3.8ghz qx9650 and manages to keep it at 57.4 degrees. That`s excellent performance considering there is no fan on the h/s. The promixity of the fins to the exhaust fan really seems to work. In fact, the reviewers tried mounting it the other way round and performance in fanless mode suffered greatly.

It`s probably one of the few coolers that could passively cool a stock core i7 (orochi and the twin towers from Noctua/Coolink are others that come to mind).

I know it`s possibly not a retail sample and we also don`t know the ambient temperature or cpu voltage, but I think the hr02 looks very promising.

One problem is that the distance between heatsink and the rear fan is not constant, and the distance is very critical for "passive" cooling effect. For LGA775, it's very close. Though named as "passive", it can be regarded as rear-mounted fan. That's why we see such excellent result for QX9650 (there is only 5 degrees improvement after adding another fan on heatsink).

While for other platforms, I don't think it is still so lucky.
