Please remember that these test results reflect our experience with each cooler on a specific motherboard, with a specific processor, BIOS revision, BCLK and voltage settings, and test programs. The results of this test cannot be directly compared to...

Thermalright is one of those companies I like to think of as a nerd house; it produces a small, but carefully crafted selection of high-quality components, all centered around a single core competency. Packaging is utilitarian, attention to detail...

Getting impressed by Thermalright is not easy, not for me and not when i know what level of performance and quality to expect from their cooling solutions. However i have to admit that I did expect the HR-02 to be a little worse in terms of...

The Thermalright HR-02 is a good looking heatsink that showcases a somewhat restrained and conservative aesthetic that should look pleasant in just about any case setup. It is massive for a single tower design though, so it's not for small cases,...

Normally when manufacturers send me their latest coolers, I get a sense of excitement that exceeds that of a new graphics card and motherboard. And when the said companies are Noctua or Thermalright, I know to expect a new leader on our charts. The...

It's hard to be disappointed with Thermalright products and well, you surely will not be disappointed by the HR-02. Throughout the installation we already had that weird 6th sense that we had something distinctive in our hands, and it is exactly...

We've already written about Thermalright's HR-02 CPU cooling, one of the pretty hefty solutions claiming to pack enough punch to passively cool a Core i7. As sceptical as we are, we've had our doubts as well, but Thermalright has proven to...

One place that Thermalright always seems to come up short is in the price department. Notice I did not say "value." Everyone values things differently. A $100 heat sink may be no big deal to you as long as it works where someone else would never...

The Thermalright HR-02 has thoroughly impressed me with its performance. Even fanless, it hangs out with other coolers in its price range. Even though the HR-02 comes in at a stout 860 grams without any fans the mounting mechanism and the hardware...

Nonostante la nostra iniziale riluttanza a prendere in seria considerazione dissipatori di calore fanless, possiamo dire di essere rimasti favorevolmente colpiti da questo prodotto Thermalright.Il cooler HR-02 restituisce prestazioni ottime anche...

Thermalright HR-02 to chłodzenie bardzo udane i niestety zarazem bardzo drogie. W zastosowaniach, z myślą o których radiator został stworzony, spisuje się on bardzo dobrze – swoją przewagę względem...

International Review By PC-Max on

Thermalright hat mit dem HR-02 ein weiteres Mal saubere Arbeit geleistet und kann wohl mit Fug und Recht behaupten, den bisher besten Silent-Kühler auf dem Markt zu haben. Doch nicht nur in diesem Bereich punktet der Kühler. So eignet sich das...

International Review By PC Games Hardware on 80

Thermalright schickt der Nachfolger des HR-01 ins Rennen, der mit sechs 6-Millimeter-Heatpipes ausgestattet ist und Lüfter der Größen 120 und 140 Millimeter aufnimmt. Der HR-02 muss sich wie alle anderen CPU-Kühler auf unserer...

Encore un produit qui va compter de la part de Thermalright, les performances sont à la hauteur de son encombrement, élevées. Il parvient à refroidir notre Core i7 920 à 4 GHz en mode passif en boîtier, et non pas sur un...

Nein, auch diesmal wurde das Kühlerrad nicht neu erfunden und es ist auch in absehbarer Zeit eher nicht damit zu rechnen. Aber Thermalright hat eindrucksvoll unter Beweis gestellt, das es mit konventionellen Mitteln durchaus immer noch möglich...
