Thermalright HR-05-SLI Chipset Heatsink Review

PC Modding Malaysia
13 September 2006
  • Conclusion: All in all, the HR-05-SLI heatsink is yet another impressive chipset cooler by Thermalright. It has two heatpipes, a large copper base and massive surface area designed for passive cooling. Although it was originally designed for passive cooling, you can always hook a 70mm or 80mm fan onto it and enjoy up even cooler chipset temperatures. While we were utterly impressed with the original HR-05, we were amazed with the newer HR-05-SLI.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, Copper base, Two heatpipes, Massive surface area, Works passively, Easy installation
  • Cons: Compatibility issues with certain boards

Thermalright HR-05 Chipset Heatsink Review

PC Modding Malaysia
27 June 2006
  • Conclusion: Overall, the Thermalright HR-05 is an impressive chipset heatsink. Thermalright did the right choice by following the foot steps of the High-Riser series and the result speaks for itself. Although the size of the heatsink is massive, we couldn’t believe how easy it was to install. Furthermore, it was designed to work passively but it is also possible to install a 70mm or even an 80mm fan on it.
  • Pros: Impressive design, Easy to install, Works passively, Massive fins, Heatpipe cooled, Compatibility with a lot of chipsets
  • Cons: Fan mounting could be better, Huge
