My sentiments exactly.

I second that!

My HR-03 is alright. I have a Antec Tri-Cool ziptied on it and I load around 60C. My case doesn't have oodles of airflow. A 120mm in the front and a 120mm in the back. I could probably put another 120mm on the top if I was really zealous, which I am not.... =P


This thing looks nice though, and being able to use 2 92mm fans would help me cool the memory better. Not to mention, its just a LOT bigger.

The only thing is that I worry about card flex. My card uses a crutch right now to assure that it stays very straight. I cant imagine this is going to reduce card flexing.

What are you talking about? What copper version? I understand you not being able to link, but who sells it and who makes it? Is it even any good? Keep in mind that we all have a first-hand knowledge of Thermalright's quality, so if it's some El-Cheap-O Brand, then we won't be interested. But this is the first I've heard of the "copper version of these". So please clarify. Thanks.

EDIT: And what do you mean a FRACTION of the price? These haven't been released yet, much less priced. How do you even know what a fraction of it is????

I would like to know also.
$60-$65 MSRP last I heard.
Alot of B.S. lately with no documentation (in general)

Made by Thermalright, same heatpipe design, the fins are not as long. I remember that FrozenCPU has them in stock for 37.99, I found them elsewhere for 29. I say "fraction" of the price, because I will bet with the new version of this HS being marketed for the cutting-edge cards, it will be $80+ or 79.99. Plz find the one I bought at the forementioned site and link for ppl please. I will link the cheap place tomorrw

also, the brackets to add a second fan to the copper version would be really easy to fabricate....FYI

and if you heard 65...that is entirely possable...I am just going from previous experience!

If your talking about the V1 or V2 they are not in the same league as the T-Rad will hopefully be (unless you plan to use it on a 6 or 7 series card).

I sincerely hope you're not talking about this:



Because that is not NEARLY the same thing. That's a Thermalright V2, and it takes up more space than the T-Rad2. I can see where you might get confused, though. But it is definitely different.

I think it may be the V2....not sure, surfing on the PS3 is like bowling with a 12" cinderblock. I was reserching and found that people were getting 20-30c drops in temp under load with this cooler and a simple mod on the 4850

Ya...thats the one...sorry to get you all excited....i can see the diff now, 4 HP instead of the 6. Still....those temp drops are still awesome for 30 Bux!
