Thermalright HR-01 X cooler - if you want to overclock your server

Posted on Sunday, Oct 07 2007 @ 00:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
ThermalRight has unveiled a new high performance processor cooler. This time not for the regular desktop processors but for AMD Socket F and Intel Xeon 5000, 7000 series (Socket 603,Socket 604,Socket 771) processors.
We have received many distraught emails from users across the globe complaining that their stock cooler would not allow them to overclock their servers. Another issues brought up was the noise they have to tolerate from the high RPM fans in order to keep the CPU at mediocre operation level. To solve these problems we upgraded the original HR-01 with 6 heat pipes, and with its proprietary thru holes you can pair it up with any low RPM 120mm fan and add the ability and flexibility to OVERCLOCK! At the same time enjoying the quietness the HR-01X brings while you work effortlessly and quietly.
  • 120mm design for low-noise fan operation (120mm Fan optional)
  • Proprietary through holes on fins for efficient ventilation
  • Six heatpipes for well spread heat around aluminum fins
  • Soldered fins to copper base (nickel plated) to make effective contact
  • Light weight and easy installation
  • Adjustable positioning on CPU for best angle on installation
  • Dimension: L110 x W60 x H159.5(mm) Heat sink only
  • Weight: 600g (heatsink only)
  • ThermalRight also provides some temperature details. They tested the cooler against the stock Intel cooler which ships with the Intel Xeon E5130 quad-core CPU. At idle the stock cooler reached a temperature of 38°C while the HR-01 X managed to keep the chip at 29°. During load the temperature differences are smaller, the ThermalRight reaches 39° and the Intel HSF 44°. But the biggest difference is in noise: the Intel HSF reaches an annoying 53dBA while the ThermalRight heatsink with a low-noise 120mm fan has a noise level of only 24.5dbA.
