Thermalright Hint At New HR-22 Passive Heatsink

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅05.11.2012 14:52:08

It appears that Thermalright, creators of the Silver Arrow heatsink, feel the market conditions are ready for a new fanless CPU heatsink for those who demand absolute silence from their PCs. Their most recent foray was the HR-02, built for the Socket 1366/1156/AM3 era of CPU's with markedly higher TDPs than the current 1155 mainstream staple. It featured six heatpipes, a significant amount of aluminium fin real-estate and an innovative mounting position off-set from the motherboard socket for maximum RAM compatibility.

Thermalright's signature model the HR-02, has turned the impossible to possible and shown the world the power of passive cooling. Now we introduce to you our next masterpiece, the HR-22.

There's not much to tell about the incoming HR-22 just yet apart from it featuring eight heatpipes, which should improve its cooling potential considerably over the HR-02. What remains unclear for now is the total fin area and supported TDP range; will it be capable of cooling a full-fat i7-3770K or even i7-3930K?

For fresh updates keep checking Thermalright on Facebook or Twitter, the main channels through which they're sharing information. In the meantime take a look at our review of the Silver Arrow SB-E.
