Fan to attach onto Thermalright HR03 Plus VGA Cooler

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My accomplishment is to overclock my video card to a pretty fast speed but still keep it fairly cool.

The Thermalright HR03 Plus VGA Cooler is the perfect candidate for this situation (unless someone has a better suggestion).

To increase the performance even more, i would like to attach a fan to the Thermalright HR03 so the cooling will be even better.

There is a special way to install this VGA Cooler so it doesn't take up a PCI slot. I plan to install it this way. (In the Link i provided, it is installation type 2).

Keep in mind, i am also getting a TRUE with a 120mm Panafolo fan to put on it. I don't know how much space this is going to take up. 2 questions:

1. Will a TRUE with a 120mm Panafolo and a Thermalright HR03 with fan fit into my computer?

2. (Main Purpose of thread) What fan should i get for the Thermalright HR03?

I highly doubt you'd be able to fit the HR-03 topside of the card if you intend to mount the TRUE vertically... especially with a fan...

However, for a fan I would suggest the 92mm vantec tornado if you're willing to go all out and have a fan controller... alternatively, you could get a panaflo with whatever dba:cfm fits your needs

Ya i am very concerned about this fitting. Well i guess that i can just get the TRUE with the fan and get the HR03 without a fan. Hey, it is better than nothin
