I’m not so sure about that as the Macho is larger than its predecessor the HR-01.

My money is on the Macho being the superior passive cooler between the two simply because it has more space for heat dissipation. It's not better than the HE02 though...

I remember there were cases that were essentially one big heatsink. They are expensive, though, and I cannot find them again.

If the system works as intended we would probably be able to toast marshmallows with it rolleyes.gif

I said HR-02 not hr-01...the macho was a cheap spin off the hr-02 that came later and didn't have nickel plating.

It works, you pair them with flexible heatpipes and it just works...Scour silentpcreview forum for more info.

Original HR-02 and Macho are practically the same minus nickel-plating? Nickel is inferior to copper at heat dissipation

Nope...

HR-02 has a different mounting mechanism, which is the same as the Silver Arrow and many others, but not the case of the HR-02 Macho.
That mechanism has a pressure vault in the middle of the base that allows you to get much better contact and dissipation.
It makes a noticeable difference in cooling capability, and nickel plating vs no bare copper doesn't make a bit of difference in real life.
It's more expensive and prevents the copper from rusting that's all.

Do some research before posting mate. wink.gif

Seriously doubt there is a difference and if there is it would be because of the copper pipes not the vault... Apples to apples with same fan the Macho wins by a negligible margin. Where is the advantage in that pressure vault?

For the Case look at the Antec Skeleton

For the GPU's look at anything Gainward Phantom (take out the fans)

For a CPU Cooler look at the Scythe Susanoo (minus the fans)

Pretty much you're are going to want heatsinks with as much surface are as possible, also, for PSU's on the other end of the spectrum, My XFX (1050w) goes passive if less than 25-30% is being used and/or temps are acceptable

I have and will be using a 3470 @ 3.0 .850vcore paired with a z77 Fatality Pro-m

Any objections before pulling the trigger on these three items?

PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182169

Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163182

CPU cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835220055

After that I'll just need for Powercolor to release their passive 7850

Edit: @Bruennis: "The ambient temperature was kept at the same level as in previous tests but the temperature inside the case was measured to be between 27C and 29C during our testing."
That's faulty testing methodology...you need to measure the cpu intake air temp directly and normalize it..."between" is not good enough. +-2c can make or break a review.

why not get a bench case like this http://www.amazon.com/MYOPENPC-Monster-Transparent-Computer-motherboard/dp/B0042RMP32/
that would take care of all the cooling much better than trapping it inside a box.
