Thermalright HR-02 upgrade fan!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Owning more than one year this cooler. Currently the fans I use are two TY-140 push/pull. Cools an FX 8120 OC 4.3 Ghz, idle Vcore 1.297 V, full load (Prime) 1.32V. Core temperature in idle is irrelevant, and in full load (prime) reaches 45-47 C in about 2 minutes and after 10 mins 50-52 C. Socket temp is ~ 68-69 C.
I was thinking to change fans with new TY-143 with 130 CFM in full speed.
My question is, if someone on this forum with the same type of cooler, tried and tested HR-02 OC with TY-143 on it, he noticed some improvements.
I have an excellent airflow in my Zalman Z11 Plus case!
Thank you!

Ty 143 could be a good choice but also akasa viper r 14

Sure you will see an improvement, but don't expect too much. Like most modern High End air coolers the HR-02 doesnt profit a lot from high flow/pressure fans, due to the wide fin spacing... so the question is, will the possible temp reduction of let's say 3-4°C be worth the increase in noise to you (+ the additional money you have to spend on these fans)?

Another fact you have to consider also, is that the your case fans would probably have to spin a bit higher than they do to effectively remove all the increased (warm) airflow from your CPU cooler fast enough... if they dont you waste some potential of the TY-143 there too..

Personally i'd say it's not really worth it... but that's just me.

Noise isnt a problem. Also the airflow inside my case can be adjusted from outside(touchpanel controller). 3-4 C will worth in my opinion.
Tnx for ur answer!

Like ehume said. If you use TY-143 fans you will need almost twice as much airflow through case to keep up.

What is the temp of air going into HR-02 now compared to room temp?

I monitor the temps with a cheap indoor/outdoor wired remote or terrarium digital thermometer. Twist a piece of stiff insulated wire into the last 8" of sensor lead so you can bend it to position sensor where you want it... like 40mm in front of your GPU cooler/radiator intake.. to see what the air temp going into CPU / GPU cooler is compared to room temp. The closer it is to room temp the better.. Shouldn't be more 5c maximum, 2-3c is what I usually end up with after 30 minutes full load on both CPU and GPU. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Hello again!

So, my room temp is now arround 28-29C. I have played a bit with my temp sensors so, look the results:

- room temp 28-29, air temp in case 29-30, thats mean the air whos enter in my HR-02 have 29-30 C. (IDLE)

- room temp 28-29, air temp in case 30-31, thats mean the air whos enter in my HR-02 have 30-31 C. (FULL LOAD CPU AND MY NVIDIA SLI)

Also i can adjust the fansRPM, to create positive pressure or negative presure in my case.
But now i'm too lazy to check wot is happend with temps when in case i have +/- pressure.

Great temps! thumb.gif

I prefer posi-pressure only because with filters on intakes it keeps things clean.
