Thermalright to release fanless CPU cooler
Most of today’s modern CPU coolers depend on a cooling fan that lowers the temperature of the cooling aluminum heat sink. While this is definitely a good solution the problem with the cooling fan is noise and as we all know there are some people who seek complete silence.
Fortunately Thermalright may have exactly what they need. The company will soon release the HR-22 – a huge fanless CPU cooler that will offer both performance and zero noise. To achieve this the cooler has grown to tremendous dimensions – it measures 150 x 120 x 159.15 mm and weighs 1160 grams. It has eight 6-mm heat pipes and despite its dimensions it does not interfere with memory modules offering up to 46 mm of fan clearance.
The Thermalright HR-22 supports all modern CPU sockets including Intel LGA 1150/1155/1156/1366/2011 and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2. Pricing is unknown.
