Product Description & Info<br />
<br />
Definitely a world first and a first for Thermalright, the HR-03 VGA cooler can be run passively or accommodate a 92 mm fan. The HR-03 can be mounted in two ways also, which is a key factor for SLI users. The compatibilities of this VGA cooler have been enhanced to support all the latest cards as well. See the HR-03 for yourself below, we installed it on a BFG 7900 GT-OC, paired with one of our Akasa 92mm Amber series fans.<br />
<br />
* Designed to work fan-less or with a 92mm fan at low RPM for low-noise operation and higher performance<br />
* Proprietary through holes on fins for efficient ventilation and proficient cooling<br />
* 4 innovative designed heat pipes (2 U-shaped and 2 N-shaped heat pipes) for thorough heat distribution across multiple fins<br />
* Two ways of mounting the cooler on video card for best space and configuration management<br />
* Light weight and easy no-tool installation<br />
* Vast compatibility with system cases (ATX & BTX)<br />
* SLI/Crossfire friendly for those serious gaming enthusiasts<br />
* Cosmetically contoured design for that vanity look<br />

Judging by the 4-heapipe design and 92mm fan compatibility - this looks to be the first TRUE, GOOD air cooling solution (other than the noisy azz stock HSF) for owners of ATI X1800 and X1900 series cards <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
<br />
If I didn't have water cooling, I'd be jumping on this right now!

forget Crossfire or SLI with those things... LOL<br />
<br />
Without fan it might fit though... with fan, no way

as it said on the page - you can flip the entire thing over and use it with the fins pointing down away from the CPU heatsink - i'll bust out ms paint if anyone needs a better explanation

got mine and mounted a Arctic Cooling 92x25mm fan on there - full load tops out at 48ºC, and it idles at around 35ºC<br />
<br />
WOOT! Thermalright takes the cake again!<br />

My previous configuration:<br />
<br />
Arctic Cooling X2 on 2 Sapphire X1900XT 512mb in crossfire mode:<br />
TIM: Arctic Silver Ceramique<br />
idle: 56C<br />
load (2h of Oblivion): 78C<br />
<br />
Thermalright HR03 (passive without fans blowing on it)<br />
TIM: Arctic Silver AS5<br />
idle: 45C<br />
load (2h of Oblivion): 67C <br />
<br />
Thermalright HR03 (with 2 S-Flex 120mm fans blowing from side of case)<br />
TIM: Arctic Silver AS5<br />
idle: 38C<br />
load (2h of Oblivion): 58C<br />
<br />
Pro: this heatsink rocks! Thermalright comes through again. :beer: <br />
<br />
Caveat: You have to double check and make sure you seat the heatsink flat on the GPU. Don't use the square rubber padding that came with the setup. I initially used it and it kept the heatsink from making full contact. When I took it off, it worked perfectly.</div>
