Lowest Prices

Conclusion:

The Thermalright HR-02 has thoroughly impressed me with its performance. Even fanless, it hangs out with other coolers in its price range. Even though the HR-02 comes in at a stout 860 grams without any fans the mounting mechanism and the hardware handles it just fine. With the addition of a low speed fan, it pulls up to some of the high end coolers that are currently on the market while still keeping fan noise to a minimum. The idle temperatures are outstanding, and the load temperatures are definitely acceptable for a passive cooler handily beating the Intel stock cooling solution. Thermalright has certainly made an excellent cooler capable of running passively, even on an overclocked i7 processor. I applaud Thermalright for the excellent cooler that the HR-02 is and I definitely hope to see what's next in their cooling lineup. Although the price is currently unreleased, I would expect this cooler to be around $60+ USD once it hits the market.If low noise is your game the HR-02 delivers. You cant get much quieter than no noise, at any price!

 

Pros:

  • Can run passively
  • Accepts 120mm and 140mm fans
  • Even better performance with an added fan
  • Size
  • Low / No noise performance

 

Cons:

  • None
