Thermalright HR-22 Makes Public Appearance

Lacking its own booth at Computex this year, Thermalright displayed a few of its products in Nanoxia's booth, among them the previously teased HR-22 cooler, a massive monolithic heat sink meant to further the merits and virtues of its praised predecessor, the HR-02. Judging by the sheer size of the beast and the design choices evident in the pictures below (eight 6 mm heat pipes and an extended fin area when compared to the HR-02, a massive heat sink in its own right), one would expect the new HR-22 to compete for the top position among passive coolers.

I am looking forward to a round up review of this product before I pass any judgment.

That thing is massive! Who needs a giant tower cooler now with the way AIO kits are going right now.

Lulz... Doesn't using a second fan conflict with the back I/O panel!?

Do seriously want :D Wonder when you'll be able to get one. Didn't they in their original Facebook post say early 2013. It's mid June soon.. And they posted the teaser last year..
Wonder if it would be able to keep my 3770K cool enough without a fan hmm.
P.S. I'm delidded and running 4.5/1.22ish vcore.

If you want to rip your motherboard off your case go right ahead.

I like how they focus the airflow but wonder why they didn't stagger the heatpipes as there all in a row .

I don't think there is any need for stupidly large air coolers like these any more, I'm sure you could get a nice AIO water cooler for the price of this.

I agree totally, there is no way I would ever buy one of these monstrosities.

Why would anyone desire a CLC that is inferior to a HSF in thermal efficiency, noise and price? Oh did I forget to mention the PC hardware damage you get with a CLC when it leaks. The leak issue is so prevalent that some mobo makers are now offering a waterproof coating on new mobos to reduce the number of fried mobos.

You don't need a HSF this big to get excellent cooling equal to or better than an H100. All you need to do is spend ~$67 (in the U.S.) for an Xigmatek Aegir or similar highend HSF and be done with it. No hassles, no leaks and no headaches. Thermalright does make great HSFs however and I've used a number of them.

The waterproof coating on motherboard its just that. A coating, and its sort of a marketing gimmick at this point. They should really put that water proof stuff in the slots. That is where they need it. Just on the PCB won't do too much.

Also you won't get leaks or disasters with liquid cooling if you aren't a retard. Leaks with the AIO kits usually are a non-issue unless you go pull at the tubing. With custom loops. Fittings and blocks have come a long way, they use really good seals and O-rings these days. Just got to use compression fittings, or clamps on your barbs. Don't pull a genius move like my buddy who didn't run clamps or compression fittings and after 3 days one tube came completely off dousing his gtx680 in all the water that was in his loop, and frying the pump since it was running dry for house till he got home to notice it, and since his system was running, and electricity and water do not mix well. 680 was done for.

And liquid cooling is a far better on thermal efficiency. And why do you think most people go water cooling solutions? It is quieter! then nearly all the higher end air options.

Wow, that's one heavy bugger. :) However, that's perfectly normal for Thermalright. After all their the guys that came up with True copper: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coolers/display/thermalright-true-copper-u120x_3.html#sect0 - 1900g!, before that I have never guessed how much a MB could withstand :D :D
Funniest part of your comment is the fact that the TRUE copper goes up and down in value depending on the price of copper.:laugh:

I love how in the picture, it's already slightly angled down from the stress. I'm even more amused by the fact that it doesn't look like they'd be able to fit the side panel back on.

I think that's pretty ingenious how the pipes line up with the strongest airflow from the fan. It should make it more efficient.

I wish that was available back when I bought the Scythe Ninja 2. I'd prefer it over the Scythe.

That is probably just camera lens, it looks fine to me with side panel, its no higher than 140mm fan .

This cooler is on a i7 39xxX /X79 chipset so they do need good cooling as 125w TDP

Would prefer to mount this horizontally but in a totally passive environment, will a vertical mount perform better?

What a ridiculous statement. THe Pump of an AIO is louder than any quality fan at 600rpm... that's only one reason to get a heatpipe based cooler.... Another would be reliability.
